When Annie ships her destructive children over to Elly's house for peace and quiet, Elly can't help but achieve payback.

(Strip Number 7237, Original Publication Date, 22 February 1987)

Panel 1: For some reason, the Nichols children are heading to the Patterson house.

Panel 2: Chris pounds on the door and asks Lizzie's mom if they can be let in.

Panel 3: Elly opens the door and lets them in.

Panel 4: As he hands Leah to Elly, Chris tells him that their mom sent him to her place for a while.

Panel 5: Richard reports that Annie did so to get some peace and quiet.

Panel 6: As they go off to join Lizzie in spreading chaos, Chris says that his mom intends taking a long bath.

Panel 7: As always, Elly winces in rage when exposed to the horrible horror that is small children behaving normally.

Panel 8: We switch focus to the Nichols house as we find ourselves watching Annie in the bath wondering who could be calling.

Panel 9: A dripping wet Annie stands there holding up her towel to find that it's Elly.

Panel 10: Elly grins evilly as she tells her that the kids are at her place.

Summary: We can probably expect some passive-aggressive stuff about how lovely it would really be to do this sort of thing to people.
