Michael uses the VCR as a means of defeating Elly's iron-clad bedtime of keeping children from being underfoot all the time.

(Strip Number 4735, Original Publication Date, 23 December 1986)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Mike pathetically plead with Elly to let him and Lizzie stay up to watch a Christmas special.

Panel 2: She relents despite it getting over at ten thirty after being subjected to more pleading.

Panel 3: She grumbles angrily about how they should air them at a decent hour like 7:30.

Panel 4: What she doesn't know is that Michael taped the special at seven thirty to watch later.

Summary: I wonder what Aaron did to provoke this slam against him. Knowing Lynn's obvious belief that he chooses to be a night owl (because the alternative is her having to admit that bellowing about something he has no control over makes her look like an ugly fool), he had to be publicly shamed for not being able to sleep on command again.
