Farley oppresses Elly by knowing how peas taste and rejecting her love by not eating them.

(Strip Number 6694, Original Publication Date, 5 October 1985)

Panel 1: We find Elly pretty much doing what she's telling Mike NOT to do as she starts scraping left-overs into Farley's dish.

Panel 2: She picks up another dinner plate filled with inedible food.

Panel 3: She then continues to do something that leaves her wondering why he won't eat his Bitso-Beefo.

Panel 4: John tells her that Farley won't eat the peas.

Panel 5: Elly says that of course he will because he won't be able to tell what's what now that it's all mushed together.

Panel 6: As he eats, Farley spits out a pea.

Panel 7: He repeats the "Eat only to turn his head and spit out any pea he might find" behaviour.

Panel 8: We find that his dish is surrounded by spat out peas and ask ourselves if dogs actually can spit things out like a human being can.

Panel 9: As Farley saunters off, Elly looks down at the ring of peas surrounding his dish.

Panel 10: John tells her that like he said, Farley won't eat the peas.

Summary: I don't know about this. Wouldn't Farley refuse to eat the whole thing if he smelled peas mushed into it? Why does Elly not realize that Farley has a better sense of smell than she does? Why does Lynn need to plagiarize Hanna-Barbera when writing for Farley? Am I overthinking this?
