While Elly tries to tell Annie what a cutie Leah is, Annie interrupts so that she can tell Elly that there is something not quite right about Leah and it's rocking her world.

(Strip Number 4642 , Original Publication Date, 1 July 1986)

Panel 1: We find ourselves in the maternity ward as Elly tells Anne that Leah's a beautiful baby; Annie tries to interrupt so she can tell Elly something.

Panel 2: As Elly tries to praise Leah's pretty little mouth and pretty big eyes, Anne again tries to warn her about something.

Panel 3: Annie shouts Elly down and tells her to stop when she talks about a sweet little baby they have.

Panel 4: She then tells Elly that Leah isn't perfect.

Summary: It should be noted that Lynn told the person writing the descriptions that "Anne is irrational and upset." This is probably because she'd forgotten that when this first came out, most of the fan base were going on a white knuckle ride because they were legitimately concerned that Annie would be crying herself sick because Leah had Down's syndrome or a hole in her heart or some other terrifying thing. Most of them would also agree with Elly's little war zone speech.
