Since she's gotta run like Hell to keep Lizzie from freaking out because there's no Space Babe under the tree, Elly has to scramble for an excuse to give any traffic cop who might wonder why she's going eighty in a fifty km/h zone. (That's fifty in a thirty zone in the States.)

(Strip Number 4731, Original Publication Date, 17 December 1986)

Panel 1: As Elly does the laundry, she's gobsmacked when Dynamite Dave goes on the radio to give a shopper's alert about a limited supply of Space Babes at Philpotts.

Panel 2: As she gets dressed to go out, she looks at the clock and says that she's gotta hurry because they're on sale at 1:45.

Panel 3: She rushes to the car and thought-bubbles that she's got just nineteen minutes to get downtown.

Panel 4: She then thought-bubbles that if she's stopped for speeding, she's going to lie about having a baby.

Summary: Hmmm. I wonder if she was one of the crazed shoppers who once showed up in Binkley's Anxiety Closet. Her desperation makes her a good fit.
