Elly's enthusiasm for the wedding and lack of concern for his feelings have got Phil thinking that the fix is in and a conspiracy to make him as miserable and angry as Elly is all the time is in play.

(Strip Number 4718, Original Publication Date, 20 November 1986)

Panel 1: Phil is clearly still ambivalent about asking Georgia to marry him but Elly is so jazzed about the process, she assumes that it's all systems go for her. This is why she tells him that a summer wedding would be wicked cool.

Panel 2: She can barely contain her delight when faced with the delightful prospect of photos at the Botanical Gardens, a reception on the island ferry and Lizzie adorable as a flower girl.

Panel 3: Super-Delighted Elly is super-delighted that he's going to tie the knot.

Panel 4: Since said knot is starting to feel like a hangman's noose, Phil thought-bubbles "I KNEW IT! I'M GETTING ROPED IN!!"

Summary: What Mrs Jumpsthegun doesn't realize is that Phil has a lot of concerns that she's going to right on ignoring. We'll see why Saturday. Also, Lynn can't quit regionalisms that don't translate well.
