(Strip Number 1109, Original Publication Date, 21 January 1987)
Panel 1: Elly accepts Phil's right to smoke if he wants to. He thanks her.
Panel 2: When she tells him that she wants him to go outside, he's taken aback.
Panel 3: Phil tries to diminish the impact of one cigarette by the use of a cute name but Elly ain't having it.
Panel 4: When she screams at him to take it outside and in the cold, Phil is startled.
Summary: I wonder how loudly Lynn will crow about the changing values that force the Phils of the world out of doors. I also wonder if Alan resents being depicted as a pathetic junkie.
