The one where we're reminded that Steve can't not ogle pretty girls despite promising not to.

(Original Publication Date, 8 December 1990)

Panel 1: A little while later, we find Elly looking at her watch and telling Anne that it's getting late because they said that they'd meet John and Steve by the mall entrance at nine.

Panel 2: When Elly says that it's gotten a whole lot easier to shop for John now that he has his trains, Anne wishes that Steve had a hobby.

Panel 3: We contrast her saying that she wouldn't care what it was as long as it made him happy with his ogling a woman who just walked by him for 'comic' effect.

Summary: I should think that this is why Anne eventually becomes more of a warden than a wife; after all, Steve is a 'male' character and thus either slobbers over pretty girls in front of his wife and family or obsesses over some "pointless" (by which Lynn means "enjoyable") activity that makes life worse for busy women because that's what men look like to someone as superficial and lacking in curiosity as Lynn is.
