Elly's search for a purpose comes to an end when a terrified Phil nervously announces his engagement.

(Strip Number 4714, Original Publication Date, 15 November 1986)

Panel 1: After dinner, Phil tells Elly that he wants to have a heart-to-heart talk about a subject that means something to him.

Panel 2: He goes on to say that he and Georgia have been living together for a while and wonders if things would change if they were....they were...

Panel 3: As he struggles to complete his sentence, Elly (who clearly seems to be assuming the worst) tells him to just say it already.

Panel 4: When he timidly squeaks out the word 'married', she's gobsmacked because she probably expected to have to give him the "don't let a good thing slip away" speech.

Summary: We can probably look forward to her crowing about waiting until after Alan and Joan got married to do this. What we can't expect is an admission that she's a really bad advertisement for matrimony.
