We begin the week with Lizzie destroying Elly's ability to express herself by emptying out her toy box so Dawn can see all of her stuff.

(Strip Number 936, Original Publication Date, 9 September 1985)

Panel 1: As Elly gets ready to iron Laundry Load Seven Of Ten, Lizzie says that Dawn has come over and is it okay if the two of of them come in and play there. Elly says that yes, it is.

Panel 2: A few minutes later, Elly is enraged by an off-camera clattering noise.

Panel 3: After storming into the room to handle the problem with extreme prejudice, Elly is greeted by Lizzie who tells that Dawn hasn't seen her toys yet.

Panel 4: When she tells Mommy that she's showin'her ALL of them and has done so by the subtle masterstroke of dumping all of them on the floor, Elly gets gobsmacked because she's the one that has to pick stuff up and put it away.

Summary: Oh, poor Elly. Here she is, trying to live her life and her awful children don't care enough to realize that their toys are to sit on shelves never to be touched. She might have to reconsider her policy of actually letting her children into their own house during daylight hours.
