(Strip Number 6721, Original Publication Date, 24 April 1988)
Panel 1: We start things in media res with John responding to Elly's certain over-reaction to something brainlessly insensitive he just said by acting like he's the victim or something.
Panel 2: He acts like a rock colossus of stupid when he turns his back on her when she gives him what for.
Panel 3: He makes some surly comment we don't get to hear as he leaves for work.
Panel 4: As he storms off to the sound of her angry bullcrap, neither infant notices that Lizzie has had to watch them behave like jerks over a non-issue.
Panel 5: He slams the door, she acts like a big scowling jerk and Lizzie wonders if Daddy is going away for good now.
Panel 6: As a traumatized Lizzie heads to the bus stop, it finally occurs to Elly that she and John had an audience when they made ugly fools of themselves over something moronic.
Panel 7: When Lizzie gets home, a penitent Elly tells her that she and Daddy feel really bad about the Big Stupid Fight they had. Lizzie says that she does too.
Panel 8: Elly asks Lizzie if she'd like to talk about it.
Panel 9: Elly is mildly confused when Lizzie says that she already did.
Panel 10: When Lizzie tells her that she talked about the big, dumb argument at show and tell, Elly nearly dies of input failure.
Summary: Today's heavy-handed bit of moralizing reminds me of a PSA we have up here that has a kid listen to a big, stupid fight her parents have and sort of take it to class. If Lynn is aware of it, she'll probably try to take credit for it.
