(Strip Number 841, Original Publication Date, 26 April 1985)
Panel 1: Michael complains loudly that Elizabeth is making faces at him through the window.
Panel 2: Elly goes to the door and tells him that he is too old to let a 4-year-old get the best of him.
Panel 3: He says she isn't getting the best of him.
Panel 4: When he whines that she's getting the WORST of him, Elly stands there gobsmacked.
Summary: Oh, I believe him. This is because I remember his whining to Deanna that he HAD to be a complete douchecanoe to her growing up because she was CUTER than he was and he could NEVER, EVER win....despite the fact that he's the SON that's going to shine in her eyes forever. Then again, I also remember that Elly smugly refuses to do anything to defuse the toxic mess her stupidity creates so I can almost forgive him for it.
