Panel 2: Oh, so she had stuff shipped to her. And another retcon/strip discrepancy: in the letters, she says she's going to need a car; here, she's all ready to buy one. And she has a pencil growing out of her lip. At first glance, I thought it was lipstick or balm.
Panel 3: Hmmmmm. Elly says "we"; wonder if this is Liz's cue to cut the cord.
Panel 4: Whoa! But of course, Elly will have some glurge about how your kid is always your little baby or something.
Panel 5: Ha, ha. Liz looks nauseous. Enough with the lips, too. And gee, I can't imagine who she's going to run into at Gordo's MegaEmporium.
