The one where Liz thought-bubbles about how John always feels better about doing something he hates if he can lecture someone about it.

(original Publication Date, 29 May 1991)

Panel 1: When she sees John folding the too much laundry and asks him why he's doing so, John tells Liz that it needed to be done.

Panel 2: He then lectures her about how that's how a family should operate. You don't wait to be asked to do something but do it the second you notice it needs doing.

Panel 3: As he channels Elly to the extent that he holds a basket of laundry and lectures her while walking away from her, he tells Liz that it's called maturity, it's called cooperation and it's how life works, understand? Liz mutters uh-huh in response because she knows her daddy.

Panel 4: This is why she thought-bubbles that he always feels better if he lectures you when he's doing something he hates.

Summary: Careful, there, Johnny. She's starting to turn into one of THEM: someone who sees right through you.
