(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.
