An angry Mike wonders why he gets stuck watching over a baby that has yet to be toilet trained.

(Strip Number 4508, Original Publication Date, 7 June 1985)

Panel 1: Elly has Richard in tow as she tells Mike that Lizzie and Chris are playing nicely downstairs.

Panel 2: She then asks him to watch over Richard and make sure he keeps out of trouble.

Panel 3: Mike complains that he was doing something and that Richard, as evidenced by his gnawing on the comic book Mike was reading, is a real nuisance.

Panel 4: He then testily thought-bubbles that Richard ain't even house-broken.

Summary: This becomes a problem for the Pattersons when his shy bladder syndrome, Annie's forgetfulness and Mrs Baird's civic-mindedness combine in such a way as to put John in a squad car.
