In today's strip, Anne non-plusses Elly by correctly interpreting what she means by her prattling about having her own identity.

(Strip Number 366, Original Publication Date, 3 February 1983)

Panel 1: As they drink their coffee and discuss Connie and Phil's private lives, Anne asks Elly why she didn't go to the convention with John. 

Panel 2: Elly replies by asking her why she wants her to walk around with a sign on her chest that says that she's Mrs Dr So-and-so.

Panel 3: She then states that it's degrading because she has her own identity.

Panel 4: Since Anne does a really stupid and evil thing called remembering all of the times Elly gleefully exploited being Mrs Dr Patterson when it was convenient, she makes a cutting remark about how Elly couldn't find a sitter.

Summary: Watch the Lynnsight either simper about how Lynn hated being Mrs Dr Johnston or chortle about how Rod should have accepted being subordinate to her at her meetings instead of whining about being in her shadow for once.
