John's comment about how odd it is to have a baby at the table again leads to Michael becoming a mouthpiece for Lynn's need to nag her children about the table manners she doesn't realize she's actually supposed to have taught them.

(Strip Number 798, Original Publication Date, 8 February 2014)

Panel 1: We start things off with Richard threatening the balance by playing with his food.

Panel 2: John comments on how long it's been since they had a baby at the table.

Panel 3: Mike responds by commenting on how neat Richard is to have around.

Panel 4: After all, how often does someone who makes him and Lizzie look good come around.

Summary: It seems to me that Lynn thinks that table manners should be learned by osmosis instead of the bad example she seems to have set. It's as if she's the focus of a PSA that would have Aaron tell her that he learned to eat like a zoo animal from her.
