(Strip Number 4612, Original Publication Date, 19 May 1986)
Panel 1: When he and Mike arrive at the Enjo's house, Carol calls Brian in for supper.
Panel 2: Carol does the neighborly thing and asks Mike if he'd care to join them.
Panel 3: He thanks her but says that he already ate.
Panel 4: Since going back home would mean standing out in the yard until sunset and not getting to watch television, we find Mike staring through the Enjo's dining room window looking longingly at them as they eat.
Summary: This isn't doing him any favors as regards convincing the Enjos that he's not some sort of freak. Either he's got a tapeworm or his mother is starving him or something; either way, the boy just ain't right.
