We begin the end game with Sue telling Elly that 'her' idea is very sneaky only to be subjected to bad wordplay.

(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.
