Today's strip is all about how the Pattersons scramble to capture a moment of siblings in harmony before they revert to screaming at each other.

(Strip Number 810, Original Publication Date, 25 February 1985)

Panel 1: We start things off watching Mike reading to Lizzie. Elly sees this as a cute moment to be caught on camera, she tells John to go and find the thing.

Panel 2: He roots through the closet for what seems like an hour to find it and discovers to his chagrin that there's no film.

Panel 3: Elly tells him to forget finding the camera.

Panel 4: This is because they've gone back to their normal pattern of bickering like imbeciles.

Summary: Lynn is also going to do something normal: write a Little Lynnie show about how children just plain fight over nothing WE MOMS can either understand or care about. Also, only childless picky-faces who belong in cages think that WE MOMS have anything to do with why they do so.
