I hand things over to howtheduck for a while tomorrow because today's strip in which Mike yells to the heavens to deliver unto him another self-excluded social misfit to be lugubrious with brings unto him the girlfriend he treats shabbily.

(Strip Number 5005, Original Publication Date, 17 August 1988)

Panel 1: Mike trudges along the shore-line in his self-willed exile and asks himself how many lonely kids there are in the world.

Panel 2: He then wonders how many other kids are like him and sitting by themselves wishing that they had someone to talk to.

Panel 3: He pauses for a second because he probably expects a crowd of gloomy ding-dongs to materialize out of the luminiferous aether because he asked for them to arrive just now.

Panel 4: When that doesn't happen, he yells that He's Over HERE!!!!!

Summary: As we're going to see over the next few years, Lynn seems to like the image of a jerk kid making a concerted effort to isolate him or herself only to wail about feeling lost and alone. That being said, Mike's screaming brings results someone else gets to comment on. Said result is asked to expose herself to social risks that cannot be asked of The Delicate Genius To Be to prove her worth.
