We begin a set piece about how Elly isn't the kind, lenient or forgiving mother she thinks she is when we launch right into bitching about how selfish children buy candy with the change we give them instead of salting it away to buy something that won't make Elly fat and ugly and worthless.

(Strip Number 5095, Original Publication Date, 6 March 1989)

Panel 1: We find Elizabeth at a local convenience store as the cashier rings in a carton of milk.

Panel 2: Since she has money left over, Liz looks at the candy counter and asks for two sourballs, a box of Nerds, a red licorice, three jawbreakers and a jelly hat.

Panel 3: She bounds out of the store with a smile on her face when she sort of plagiarizes Sparky and thought-bubbles that happiness is getting to keep the change.

Summary: While it looks as if Liz only got that nasty-ass lecture from John and Elly next Wednesday for lying and violating a trust that should never have been imposed upon her in the first place, I have faith in them. They'd act as if she yelled "Hail Hydra!" if all that happened was her buying candy with the change because they're thin-skinned people who expect kids to read their alleged minds.
