When John compliments Elly about getting published, she makes an arch comment about how poetry is supposed to rhyme.

(Strip Number 1045, Original Publication Date, 30 April 1986)

Panel 1: John congratulates Elly because while knowing she could write well, to be published is quite an accomplishment.

Panel 2: Elly tells him that she is still surprised that she made the grade because of how different and odd her poem is.

Panel 3: John asks what she thinks is so different about it.

Panel 4: Elly speaks for the juvenile philistine writing this by going all bleary-eyed and saying that it actually rhymes.

Summary: Just as Lynn and Elly dismiss jazz as being discordant noise because neither of them can sing along to it like people are 'supposed' to, the over-grown child makes noise about how poetry is supposed to rhyme.
