We celebrate Valentine's Day proper with something that looks cute and sentimental but would have set off alarm bells even if we didn't know about the Settlepocalypse.

(Strip Number 802, Original Publication Date, 14 February 1985)

Panel 1: We find Lizzie helping Mommy make Valentine's Day cookies; Elly reminds her not to wiggle the cutter around because they need the edges nice and sharp.

Panel 2: After putting the cookies on the baking sheet, Elly talks about how now they can add the sprinkles and bake them.

Panel 3: After the first batch starts to cool, Lizzie asks Elly if she can have one.

Panel 4: She then goes over to John and offers it to him by asking if he'd like a warm heart.

Summary: While this is innocentISH in and of itself, remembering that Liz would go on to marry Anthony because he was exactly like Daddy in every way except that it was okay to bang Nostache adds just a bit of future squick to the proceedings.
