Yet another example of normal little kid behaviour stumps Elly when Lizzie and Dawn really do care that Richard has ice cream despite telling him that they don't when he's a little shit about it.

(Strip Number 1208, Original Publication Date, 7 October 1987)

Panel 1: As she and Dawn bike past him, Richard tells Lizzie "Nyah-nyah, I got ice cream and you don't"; Lizzie tries to deflect his snottiness by use of the question "So?"

Panel 2: When he tells her it's banilla (because Lynn wants to hammer home how evil children are for getting words they've just learned wrong are) and they can't have any, she tells him she doesn't care.

Panel 3: As they bike away, she tells him he's gotta try harder than that to make them jealous.

Panel 4: We shift focus to baffled Elly being baffled because she doesn't understand why a pleading Dawn and Lizzie have to have ice cream now.

Summary: Liz always did talk a good game about not caring about things only to be crippled by anxiety about what others had. Also, Elly's solution to the 'problem' isn't very smart because it's coming from a woman not smart enough to understand children.
