(Strip Number 764, 14 December 1984)
Panel 1: As Elly rehearses her 'you love your tools more than you love me' speech, a panicked Michael tells her that the person on the other end of the phone says that Daddy is in hospital.
Panel 2: She talks to John to find out what exactly happened.
Panel 3: As Elly grabs her coat and purse, she tells Michael that John has broken his foot by dropping a 25 lb turkey on it.
Panel 4: As they leave, she tells him to get the laughing done before they get there.
Summary: While I don't ordinarily condone laughing at something like this, I like the hypocrisy even less. After all, Elly isn't mad at Mike for laughing. She's mad at him because he's not old enough to laugh at an adult.
