We contrast Molly's self-pitying belief that no one knows that a moody eleventh-grader who sits in her room all day long thought-bubbling the word "GLOOM!" exists with the knowledge that the moron child next door has done everything but charge admission to look into her room.

(Strip Number 1172, Original Publication Date, 14 July 1987)

Panel 1: Gordon alludes as to how the arc will resolve itself when he says being able to see right into Molly's bedroom is too good to be true.

Panel 2: He compares the experience of being a jerkwad kid leering into someone's room with being in a movie before inviting Brian and Darryl to also get nailed by their folks for being stupid.

Panel 3: Gordon delights in the fact that Molly's curtains are wide open while Darryl is excited that she's there for their viewing pleasure.

Panel 4: Since there aren't many kids her age around right now, Molly is sitting in her bedroom lamenting how she hates Milborough because she feels as if no one knows she exists.

Summary: Sadly, she's better off not being the fantasy projection of scruffy little boys. Also, wanna bet that when the dust settles, she'll be the recipient of a lecture on provoking them somehow?
