I don't know what Lynn is going for here today with this one. A man like me would look at Elly being stupid enough to think that a four-year old child could play babysitter and pin the blame on the resultant mess on the adult but I tend to think that Lynn has cast Lizzie as the villain.

(Strip Number 4469, Original Publication Date, 1 February 1985)

Panel 1: As our story continues, Elly takes Richard into Lizzie's room and tells him that he's there for a visit.

Panel 2: As Lizzie plays with a Raggedy Andy doll, Elly asks her to watch Richard while she cooks supper. Lizzie says uh-huh in response.

Panel 3: A distracted-looking Lizzie also says uh-huh when Mommy asks if she's sure if she can watch him.

Panel 4: When Elly asks Lizzie if she's still watching Richard, she says she is but is really playing with a doll and doesn't see him grabbing a fragile looking lamp.

Summary: Oh, my. Supper should have waited because anyone with a brain can tell you that a four-year old kid is going to make a lousy baby-sitter.
