Lynn takes the Thin White Duke's name in vain when trying to prove that Molly's love for Unseen Lad is superficial and silly and she should just turn her emotions on and off like a light switch to make life easier for that moronic flake Connie.

(Strip Number 4850, Original Publication Date, 28 August 1987)

Panel 1: Molly raises the damned good point of how arrogant Elly is to call some kid she's never going to meet a jerk.

Panel 2: Molly grudgingly admits that Mrs Patterson has a point about how she wouldn't treat him the way it looks like he's treating her.

Panel 3: She then reminds us that she's a kid who hasn't been around long enough to know better when she responds to Elly's cheery advise about flushing him by telling her that he means the world to her.

Panel 4: We remind ourselves that Lynn has a blind, knee-jerk hatred of anything remotely cool by having Molly baffle Elly by simpering that Rando's got all of her David Bowie tapes.

Summary: We get it. The kid can't know what love is because she doesn't have a ring on it. Move on. Also, we get another reminder of Lynn's belief that the only really good music is the kind someone like Elly can sing along to.
