Snarky Candiru2

Tuesday, 4 June 2013

In today's strip, Elly is presented as going the extra mile for doing the bare minimum expected of her when she finally goes to the hospital to be with Lizzie.

(Strip Number 624, Original Publication Date, 5 June 1984)

Panel 1: A few hours after John imagined the unimaginable, Elly is awakened by a phone call from the hospital telling her that they're putting Elizabeth on intravenous medication.

Panel 2: Her response to this is to get up and start to get dressed. When John asks where she is going, she tells him that she's going to the hospital.

Panel 3: After all, if she's not going able to sleep, she might as well not sleep there.

Summary: If there are thoughts for today, they'll be about how there wasn't room enough in the air ambulance to take parents to Winnipeg which meant that they had to fly commercial. The realization that the Pattersons don't have that sort of alibi is not one she's willing to make so we're going to get something of a song-and-dance number if we get anything at all.
