Brian tells Mike that the primary reason for their move was so that Keith could have more room to play with toys.

(Strip Number 4616, Original Publication Date, 23 May 1986)

Panel 1: Mike makes a failed effort to save face by complimenting Keith on his train set.

Panel 2: Brian tells Mike that in the place they used to live, his dad's model train layout took up their whole basement.

Panel 3: It got so bad that Carol delivered a stupid ultimatum about how it was either his trains or her. Mike asks what happened.

Panel 4: Brian explains that rather than choose between his wife or his trains, Keith moved them to a new house.

Summary: This is meant to make Keith look like a silly fool who ignores his family and his duty to his wife by playing with toys but, well, I don't like people who play mental games like that. Not one bit do I like people that fragile and tetchy. Lynn just ruined the shit outta Carol with this one.
