The one where Liz is her own worst enemy when it comes to explaining why she's failing her classes.

(Original Publication Date, 17 January 1991)

Panel 1: We find Liz in class bug-eyed with fear thought-bargaining with her teacher to please, please, PLEASE not ask for last night's homework.

Panel 2: If he asks for it, she's in major trouble because she didn't do it because she was too busy feeling sorry for herself because the old baby can't and (to this very day) won't cope with the new baby. She'll freak. She'll die on the spot. She'll....get interrupted mid-internal rant.

Panel 3: This is because he delights her by giving everyone extra time on their assignment just in case.

Panel 4: We find ourselves watching Elly fuck up again when she asks Liz if she's got homework tonight so Liz can watch the box and mutter about being given another day.

Summary: Everyone talks about how Liz owed it to the world to be Lynn's idea of a good teacher to atone for being a crappy student but they never admit that she has help being bad: an omnishambles mother.
