Being given the brush-off by Melody Morrison reconciles Lizzie to sitting next to someone who looks like the boy who will be her Twoo Wuv.

(Strip Number 4668, Original Publication Date, 5 September 1986)

Panel 1: Lizzie thought-bubbles that she hates sitting next to the boy she's paired with now and wonders why she has to sit with him when she'd rather sit to some girl across the room.

Panel 2: She thinks that maybe, if she went over there, that girl would like me and they could sit together.

Panel 3: Her attempt to win over Melody Morrison collapses when the girl gets all snippy and superior.

Panel 4: Lizzie sits down to the boy and thinks that maybe, she could learn to like sitting next to him.

Summary: Today's strip is the first example of Lynn's hip cool gospel about how adults don't really outgrow playground head games. Time and again, Elizabeth would comment on playground politics and wish that she were all grown up so that she could be treated fairly instead of having to deal with snobbery and peer pressure and time and again, Elly would go all deer in the headlights on us because that's not the case.
