We come to the point of this arc when we're reminded that Lizzie doesn't need to fit in because her daddy loves her.

(Strip Number 4814, Original Publication Date, 13 June 1987)

Panel 1: Having realized that she doesn't seem to fit in with anyone, Lizzie asks John if she's a big kid or a little kid.

Panel 2: John tells her that it's all how she looks at things. This is because to Leah, Elizabeth is a big kid while to a teenager, Elizabeth is a little kid.

Panel 3: John asks her if she wants to know what he thinks.

Panel 4: It so happens that John thinks she's just right as he gives Elizabeth a big hug.

Summary: This would be less of a problem if Lizzie weren't so stand-offish and timid that she doesn't realize that there's a solution to her problem that should have Dawned on her a year ago. Of course, the problem with that solution is that Liz turns into a possessive jerk who internalized the Highlander ethos but that's a problem for a later day.
