As Lizzie walks down the aisle, she thought-bubbles about how scary having all those strange (and thus OBVIOUSLY threatening) people look at her is.

(Strip Number 4841, Original Publication Date, 6 August 1987)

Panel 1: The ceremony proper begins as Georgia's Maid of Honour tells a freaked-out Lizzie to begin her walk down the aisle.

Panel 2: Having noticed that she's not moving much, she tells Lizzie to relax because it's only a few feet.

Panel 3: We get into more wordplay when Lizzie looks at the sea of unknown (and thus obviously hostile and menacing) faces and thought-bubbling that it's the eyes that scare her, not the feet.

Summary: If the monthly letters were a thing in 1987, we'd get a lot of passive-aggressive puffing from Elly about unfair and cruel people who wanted to subject Lizzie and Mike to a super-unnecessary rehearsal. Didn't they know that good children are supposed to know what to do without being coached beforehand?
