We end the week with a reminder that nobody ever really taught Mike to share things.

(Strip Number 886, Original Publication Date, 6 July 1985)

Panel 1: Lawrence tells Mike that he and Lizzie want to be on the pretend television for a change instead of just being the audience.

Panel 2: When Mike tells them that they were on already, Lizzie points out that it was not for very long.

Panel 3: Mike foreshadows the argument that would drive a wedge between April and Becky by pointing out that it was HIS idea to make a TV so he's the star an'they gotta do what HE says.

Panel 4: A few seconds later, we find his sitting in the yard alone thought-bubbling about how lonely it is at the top.

Summary: As was pointed out, Elly might talk a good game about trying to get Michael to share things but she never did quite deliver. Then again, she never set much of an example for him....
