(Strip Number 4752, Original Publication Date, 29 January 1987)
Panel 1: As Phil drinks some coffee, Mrs Baird tells them that it's time for her to move to a smaller place that's easier for her to look after.
Panel 2: She wanted to tell Elly first in case she knew someone looking for a new place to live.
Panel 3: When Elly tells Phil it's a nice place, he's taken aback by the suggestion that he become her neighbor.
Panel 4: When Thelma offers to hold the mortgage, Phil says to HOLD EVERYTHING! because she and Elly are moving too fast.
Summary: Not only are they putting the cart before the horse here, the idea of spending the rest of his life listening to that dim-witted shrew Elly beefing at him unmolested because she won't let the past go is as hellish as having to live in the same neighbourhood as Ted and Sally Forth.
