The one where Elly weeps because April keeps her up all night.

(Original Publication Date, 21 April 1991)

Panel 1: It is late at night at the Patterson house. We find Elly with an astonished and horrified look on her face when April starts to cry. We also find John sleeping 'unearned' sleep.

Panel 2: A half-asleep Elly puts on her housecoat so she can go to Liz and April's room.

Panel 3: She changes April's diaper and April is still crying.

Panel 4: She nurses April and she's still crying.

Panel 5: She burps April and she's still crying.

Panel 6: Elly stares out the window because April is still crying.

Panel 7: Since Elly is herself, it takes her a very long time to remember that rocking the baby to sleep gets results.

Panel 8: She puts a sleeping April to bed.

Panel 9: She passes by the alarm clock and finds out that it's 4:35 in the morning.

Panel 10: Since she was up all night with the baby, Elly cries. This finally wakes John up.

Summary: Since John has to work all day, this causes him to come up with a non-solution: Fiona.
