Mike and Lawrence resume their bond by their mutual love of being snotty little shits to Lizzie.

(Strip Number 1243, Original Publication Date, 31 December 1986)

Panel 1: We find Lizzie standing at a doorway telling someone that she's going to tell on them for doing what they've been doing.

Panel 2: Lizzie tells John that Mike and Lawrence have been teasing her in the expectation that John will actually do something about it.

Panel 3: As Elly pours coffee, she asks John (who's always believed that his function is to settle things only when Elly cannot) if the boys have found something that they can do together.

Panel 4: As he looks at his rear so as to focus on the chaos Elly should be suppressing, he says that she might say that.

Summary: This leaves us wondering why Obi-John didn't stop using Jedi truth and give the two a seeing-to himself. He seems to think that Elly should drop everything so he doesn't have to be a parent or something.
