(Strip Number , Original Publication Date, 26 September 1987)
Panel 1: As John and Elly get ready to go out for the evening, she tells him that when she first met him all those years ago, she thought he was a fairly nice fellow.
Panel 2: He says that he thought of her as someone he'd like to get to know better.
Panel 3: As Gayle comes in to sit for the evening, Mike asks John if he and Mom are hitting the town. John says that they're going one better.
Panel 4: When he tells him that they're going on a date, the seeming absurdity of two people who are already married doing that baffles Mike and Lizzie.
Summary: We get to see this again when Lizzie is certain that since her parents are married, they don't need to and thus shouldn't get all affectionate with one another.
