(Strip Number 1094, Original Publication Date, 9 October 1996)
Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Mike watch Lizzie water the plants. Since Michael sees doing chores as a punishment of some sort, it's not hard to understand why he snickers at Elizabeth because she's got a new task on her to-do list.
Panel 2: She responds by dumping a bunch of water on his head.
Panel 3: He angrily asks her why she did that.
Panel 4: She tells him that he looked as if he needed to be watered.
Summary: This is probably the first in a series of strips where Mike thinks that he can push Lizzie around only to get gut-punched by the 'weak' girl. He never learns to shut his mouth because he's slow-witted and mean.
