The one that where Mike wants to endanger a delivery guy to save a bit of money like a bit of a creep.

(Original Publication Date, 25 March 1991)

Panel 1: Elly tells the kids that Dad is staying in town tonight and she's not hungry so they should get their own dinner. Liz asks if they can order pizza.

Panel 2: Elly says "Sure" off-camera so we can set up the quirky thing that causes a lot of mischief. This is because Mike says to order from Mario's despite the fact that as Liz says, Luigi's is closer.

Panel 3: Mike knows this but he also knows that if Mario's can't make a delivery in twenty minutes, the pie is free. Liz asks why that is a selling point.

Panel 4: Mike smiles broadly as he tells her to look out the window and notice that the roads have been made impassible by freezing rain.

Summary: Swell kid, huh? He's about to endanger a deliveryman just to save a few bucks. As we're about to see, he's also going to terrify the crap out of his dad and confuse his mother.
