We begin the wedding arc with Mike paying Lizzie a very left-handed compliment about her appearance.

(Strip Number 1183, Original Publication Date, 27 July 1987)

Panel 1: It's the day of Phil and Georgia's wedding so we find ourselves watching Elly tell Lizzie to stand still while she gets her flower girl dress just right.

Panel 2: She gushes to insensitive clod John about what a beautiful day for a wedding it is and how excited that makes her.

Panel 3: She then asks Mike if Lizzie isn't the prettiest flower girl ever. He says she is.

Panel 4: He then reminds us that he's Mike Patterson when he confuses and depresses everyone with a malicious crack about how she looks too good to be his sister.

Summary: What we got here is a jerk kid who fears having THE GUYS mock him for complimenting his kid sister more than he likes being a decent person. He needs Vitamin Punch His Teeth The Hell Out.
