Georgia makes a passive-aggressive remark about how Elly is really kind of dowdy.

(Strip Number 5107, Original Publication Date, 21 March 1989)

Panel 1: When the Richardses arrive bearing desert, Elly makes note of the fact that Georgia's had her hair cut recently.

Panel 2: When Elly makes an approving comment about her new do, Georgia thanks her and says that she needed a change.

Panel 3: As she hangs up her jacket, Georgia looks at Elly and says at her age the long hair made her look dowdy.

Panel 4: When Elly remembers that Georgia's about five years younger than she is and that she herself wears her hair in the same style she's worn it for twenty years, she has a subdued freak-out.

Summary: Georgia doesn't realize it but she's accidentally touched off any number of arcs that have Elly attach more importance to changing her hairstyle than she should.
