Today's strip has Lizzie ruin Elly's life forever by unscrewing things. Given her deer-in-the-headlights stare and complete inability to catch on the fact that someone's racing around playing with a screwdriver, it's probably supposed to be Lizzie's fault that Elly has the brains of an ant.

(Strip Number 7219, Original Publication Date, 1 June 1986)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Elly try to open a cupboard door only to have the handle come off in her hand.

Panel 2: She goes all goggle-eyed trying to figure out why that happpened.

Panel 3: She's equally confused when a drawer handle also comes off in her hand.

Panel 4: Instead of bellowing "WHICH OF YOU LITTLE HEATHENS IS RACING AROUND UNSCREWING STUFF!!!," she's all baffled when a cupboard door comes off in her hand.

Panel 5: When she tries to unplug something only to have the plate fall away from the socket, she's still totally baffled.

Panel 6: This continues when the plate falls off of the light switch.

Panel 7: As she tries to take the lid off of a pot only to have it come off in her hand, we see a happy Lizzie tell Daddy that she learned how to use a screwdriver today.

Summary: Since Elly is stupid, we're probably about a few minutes away from Lizzie being screamed at and forbidden to touch tools because she did something no one should anticipate and so on and so forth in order to not admit that Elly might remember but she simply cannot think.
