(Strip Number 4698, Original Publication Date, 22 October 1986)
Panel 1: We switch to the theatre as Elly shares 'her' clever plan to save the place with Sue; she explains that since they already have all the costumes, they can have the Halloween party of the century.
Panel 2: They can invite every politician in town and they'll have so much fun, they wouldn't bear to tear the place down.
Panel 3: When Sue points out that 'her' plan is pretty sneaky, Elly agrees.
Panel 4: She then misquotes Shakespeare and says that "The ploy is the thing."
Summary: I would say something about how people who live by stealing ideas die by stealing ideas but I think that speaks for itself.
