In today's super-boring slice of life strip, the Patterson children make John's finding all the junk they've shoved into the couch over the years into a sort of miracle.

(Strip Number 6718, Original Publication Date, 20 March 1988)

Panel 1: We start things off with John wanting to show Lizzie something.

Panel 2: To her delight, said thing is a necklace she lost somewhere.

Panel 3: Mike has the same experience of being delighted that something he thought lost was found when John asks him if he's holding Mike's silver dollar.

Panel 4: We tag Lizzie back in when John finds her Garfield pin.

Panel 5: We switch back to Mike when John fishes his headphones out of a latter-day Fibber McGee's closet.

Panel 6: Lizzie tells Elly to come lookit all the neat things Daddy found.

Panel 7: So far, he's found a hair band, a nail file, the jack of clubs, a change purse, a photo of Auntie Grace and two pairs of socks.

Panel 8: Elly asks John what happens to be going on.

Panel 9: He tells her to her surprise that he took the cushions off of the couch.

Summary: Well, we've all had that happen to us at some point. This would be a totally banal outing if Elly weren't mildly alarmed by yet another commonplace.
