We spend today watching Lizzie make another future good old day when she writes a bummed-out John a prescription for hugs.

(Strip Number 6662, Original Publication Date, 17 April 1988)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching John lying on the couch reading the paper.

Panel 2: For some reason, he tosses it into the floor.

Panel 3: When Lizzie asks Daddy whatsa matter, John says that he doesn't know.

Panel 4: He doesn't know if he's bored, tired or depressed.

Panel 5: She tells him that it's nothing to worry about because everybody feels that way sometimes.

Panel 6: He smiles as he sets up the mushy punchline by asking if she's a doctor.

Panel 7: She isn't one but she does write him a puhstipshun(prescription).

Panel 8: She hugs him and asks if he feels better now.

Panel 9: A little while later, Elly asks him what the note Lizzie wrote says.

Panel 10: It reads "Take Two Hugs And Call Me In The Morning"

Summary: Call me a fool but I like this one. Oh, sure, it's pandering to the base but it's done well for once.
