We begin the "Mike is an idiot" arc with Elly being flabbergasted because Carol did to her what she does to other mothers.

(Strip Number 4565, Original Publication Date, 17 February 1986)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Mike ask Elly if Brian an'Dawn can come in. Elly, who's making one of her famous stews, says sure.

Panel 2: As the kids walk to the living room, Elly just wants to make sure of one thing and asks the Enjos if their mother knows where they are; they say "Uh-huh" in unison.

Panel 3: Dawn makes Elly go all gob-smacked by saying that her mother wanted them to mess someone else's house up for a change.

Summary: The look on Elly's face clearly indicates that she's astonished that other people have copied one of her cleverest tactics.
