Since he's sort of lazy, we have Mike lie about not wanting to catch a baffled and terrified Lizzie.

(Strip Number 4980, Original Publication Date, 4 June 1988)

Panel 1: As Mike reads a comic book, Lizzie peers over the door and taunts him about not being able to catch her. Mike gets all cool and junk about how he doesn't wanna.

Panel 2: When she escalates by calling him wart-head, he tells her that that he hasn't the slightest desire to catch her which more or less means that chasing her around is beneath him. This should tell her why he's not getting up off his chair but Lizzie is sort of late to all the parties....if you do what she can't and catch my drift.

Panel 3: Since she's sort of dense, she leans right in and mocks him about not being able to catch her.

Panel 4: When he grabs onto her and yells "GOTCHA!!!", it occurs to her far too damned late that he was simply too lazy to chase her. Catching her is okay as long as he doesn't have to do too much.

Summary: Lynn would go on to reuse this gag with Jim and April. The difference is that April actually wanted to be caught.
