(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.
