We begin the "Let's meet the Enjo family" arc with Mike using his knowledge of how Elly thinks to get her to join him checking out the new people.

(Strip Number 932, Original Publication Date, 4 September 1985)

Panel 1: As Elly goes over an assignment her supervisors gave her, Mike comes in and tells her about the big moving van that just showed up in front of what used to be Connie's house before asking if they can go see who's moving in.

Panel 2: She starts to try to weasel her way out of doing what he wants which causes him to plead pathetically because the new family has a child roughly his age.

Panel 3: He then says that this'll be her only chance to check out their furniture without going inside their house.

Panel 4: As she gets up from the table, he smiles and muses that there's always an angle.

Summary: Said angle involves knowing Elly better than she knows herself. Mike seems to be good at this as evidenced by his constantly asking how long the day's angry tirade about how he doesn't care about anything will be. That being said, tune in Friday when Elly proves that she knows almost nothing about Mike when she tries to keep him from making what she's convinced will be a racial slur.
