We transition from berating Michael about real estate costs to deriding home owners when Phil makes a smart remark about a crazy cat lady.

(Original version, Strip Number 5166, Date, 1 August 1989)

Panel 1: As John and Phil's silhouettes talk about something unimportant, Georgia tells Elly that she and Phil have two more houses to look at and invites her to come along for the ride.

Panel 2: A little while later, we find them pulling up at an open house at 121 Milkweed Lane. Phil and Georgia take turns being narrtor when he tells Elly where they are and she tells her that it's an open house.

Panel 3: Having noticed something unpleasant, Georgia starts to declare that something tells her that it's not nearly open enough because every room smells like something or other when revolted looking Elly butts in and says "CATS!"

Panel 4: As Georgia gags and Elly giggles, Phil makes a mildly humorous remark about the true meaning of the realtor's comment about the place having an atmosphere all its own.

Summary: It appears that Lynn was not fond of the person or persons who made the transition to Corbeil less smooth that she'd have liked. We know this from the trouble Connie and Greg had and we're going to see it again tomorrow. This time, though, the previous owners are also in for a good scraping.
