(Strip Number 1170, Original Publication Date, 11 July 1987)
Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Lizzie watching over the wall as Elly reminds her that it's bedtime.
Panel 2: Lizzie is hiding in the shrubbery watching Elly get more insistent about it being time to come in.
Panel 3: She's hiding next to the trash can when Raging Nitwit Elly starts screaming about coming in this minute OR ELSE!!!
Panel 4: As she gets marched into the house, Lizzie thought-bubbles that she likes to wait until Elly means it.
Summary: While we're probably meant to think that children rebel against mothers because they're selfish and cruel, let's remind ourselves that most people see Elly's trademark rages and hair-trigger temper as something to exploit. It's almost impossible not to resist goading someone that easy to infuriate.
