"An'"s: Four.

Lynn overdoes it with drawing characters talking with their eyes closed, IMO. It gives the impression of smugness, which is bad enough when it seems to be intentional, as when Elly says, "I'm going to set up on your couch for three days!". But why on earth does April close her eyes while telling Liz that Francoise is "gonna be fair an' freckled like her dad"? Perhaps she's rubbing it in that Liz missed her chance to make a baby with Anthony that would share her goddess-like characteristics?

And Liz thinks money is "so impersonal". Well, what would she have sent anyway? A dreamcatcher? A container of moose stew?

And what is up with April's hair?! She looks like an extra from Wigstock! Check out panel two: smugly closed eyes AND hair of such an altitude that it has to be supported by a pillow! Does she own a copy of "Pricilla Presley's Guide to Coiffure"?
