Mike irritates Elly by being dead on about why adults don't want children harshing their mellow when they get themselves all plastered and lecherous.

(Strip Number 4699, Original Publication Date, 23 April 1986)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Elly tell John that she's receiving a lot of positive feedback on the Halloween party at the Old Town Hall Theater. Lizzie asks if she can come to said party.

Panel 2: When Elly tells her that it's for adults only, Elizabeth thinks it's no fair.

Panel 3: When Elly tries to explain that it's just more fun for adults without kids around, Lizzie wants to know howcome.

Panel 4: When Michael explains that with kids around the adults can't go around acting like kids, Elly gets irritated.

Summary: This is because she doesn't like to be subjected to any honesty about her motives. Heh. We needed him around to explain to April why she couldn't go on the child-hostile cruises to the South. Instead of vague nonsense that sort of says "you're a horrible child who drains your pooooooor parents of their substance, you Farley-killing MONSTER", the more accurate "your parents want to act like crazed monkeys and don't need a kid making them act their age around" would have been easier on the eye and on my nerves.

    Panel 1: Okay, this is ridiculous. Francie looks like a teenager, and the configuration is as if Granthony is courting her from below her balcony.…
