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.
