Panel 1: Since it means that he gets his best best friend back too, Mike is over the moon about Connie's return.
Panel 2: Said excitement vanishes when Elly comes along and tells him that because Connie is coming, he must clean out both the rec room and his bedroom.
Panel 3: Upon noticing his lethargic, depressed state of being as he saunters down the hallway as if marching to the gallows, Lizzie asks Mike what's wrong.
Panel 4: What's wrong is that Connie's coming.
Summary: What's also wrong is that Elly has no idea that she's seen as a buzzkill who sees everything as an opportunity to make kids do boring chores she refuses to praise.
