The one where John says that it's strange to see Mike's room look tidy.

(Original Publication Date, 6 August 1991)

Panel 1: Having noticed that Farley seems to be sort of more out of it than usual, Elly points this out to John. John thinks that it might be the heat because Elly never bothered telling him what she told Liz two weeks ago.

Panel 2: Elly forgets that she told Liz that the dog is getting on in years and ascribes it to his missing Michael. She also forgets that she packed him off to the summer camp and says that he's never been away from home that long before. There's a sort of empty feeling around here with Mike being someone else's problem.

Panel 3: We find them in his bedroom and Elly says that it feels strange when you do so. John agrees.

Panel 4: He then says that maybe, they shouldn't have cleaned it.

Summary: What we're probably dealing with is Lynn's reaction to the state of Aaron's room after he left home. It probably didn't look right without the clutter that used to drive her bonkers.
