(Strip Number 6026, Original Publication Date, 23 September 1985)
Panel 1: We begin things with Elly screaming at Mike because once again, he just dropped his socks on the floor because television tells him it's a mother's job to do housework, not his.
Panel 2: When she screams if he hears her, he makes a vague YEAH sound.
Panel 3: He does that again when she asks if he's listening.
Panel 4: When she finds him listening to headache music when he's supposed to be doing homework, she gets all rage-facey.
Summary: Tune in for another annoying lecture about how since Lynn can't cope with distractions, her children's claims that you don't have to live in a God-damned isolation chamber to do stuff are evil lies meant to make her think that she's either some sort of freak who can't concentrate or some sort of hermit who doesn't like people.
