Lizzie rats Mike out so that Elly can subject him to the torture of music lessons with his high-strung uncle.

(Strip Number 892, Original Publication Date, 16 July 1985)

Panel 1: We continue on with the day when Elly calls for Michael because it is time for his trumpet lesson.

Panel 2: Since Mike is nowhere to be found, the scowling nitwit asks Lizzie if she's seen the cruel, horrible boy who wants to torment his poor loving mother by not caring about his glorious future. Lizzie says she has.

Panel 3: When Elly asks where he is, Lizzie says she promised not to tell.

Panel 4: When Rage-Face Elly angrily grabs her, Elizabeth offers to point to the bush Michael is hiding behind.

Summary: It's a good job Coffee Talk is gone. I'd hate to see the number of idiots defending Rage-Face Elly's need to turn every damned thing into a conspiracy to ruin her life. Mike can't possibly feel inadequate and humiliated by his lackluster trumpet skills because that would mean that poor Elly is being unfair.
