Elly's whining to Connie about how Mike and Lizzie can't even try to co-exist ends in a reminder that both she and Mike were twenty-five years of age when they finally got around to accepting the fact that their younger sibling had as much right to exist as they did.

(Strip Number 4834, Original Publication Date, 9 July 1987)

Panel 1: As she and Connie have a cuppacoffee, Elly tells her that she's tired of Mike and Lizzie's incessant bickering and wishes that they'd make peace with one another.

Panel 2: When Connie wonders if she and Phil ever fought, Elly says that of course they did.

Panel 3: Eventually, they realized that they loved one another and could accomplish more in life as friends than they did as enemies.

Panel 4: The problem is that it took them until they were in their twenties to realize it.

Summary: Given what we know of Elly and Phil and how it took the death of their parents for them to completely reconcile, it'll take until 2040 for Mike to stop resenting Lizardbreath. Also, look for notes that insist that all children want to murder one another because she wanted to kill Alan half of the time.
