(Strip Number 1016, Original Publication Date, 5 February 1986)
Panel 1: As our story continues, we find that Marian and Jim's process of packing for home has hit a snag; that's because Marian has just noticed that Lizzie has climbed into her suitcase. Marian tells her to get out of it NOW.
Panel 2: She's angry at Lizzie because they have to leave for home tonight and she's messed up everything.
Panel 3: She does the stupid-ass palms-out pleading thing when asking Lizzie why she did something that evil and wrong and chaotic.
Panel 4: When Lizzie says that she wanted to come wif her and Jim, Marian is confused.
Summary: This is because she tends to forget that Lizzie and Mike see her as being a better mommy than Mommy despite the fact that her being a mommy made Mommy into the crazy, angry, whiny nutloaf she is today.
