The one where Elly says that she will never forgive Fiona for not being properly deferential.

(Original Publication Date, 4 July 1991)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching the Pattersons drive down the road in Elly's hover-mobile. John is trying to convince a reluctant Elly to at least see the place where Fiona is working and that they don't have to go in. Elly sputters out a 'But...' because she doesn't want to see Fiona or think of her ever again. Well, either that or she's trying to point out that the buildings are leaning forward at a ten degree angle.

Panel 2: John allows that Fiona might be a bit coarse but Elly should give herself time to get to know her.

Panel 3: He then sets up the punchline by asking Elly to think of Fiona as a diamond in the rough. Elly already does.

Panel 4: Her eyes narrow in contempt when she says "At the coal stage."

Summary: Elly will never forgive Fiona for not being able to read her mind and be the happy slave she was designed to be, will she?
