Snarky Candiru2

Thursday, 6 June 2013

In today's strip, Elly is confused when Lizzie seems rather reluctant to return home.

(Strip Number 626, Original Publication Date, 7 June 1984)

Panel 1: A few minutes after the events of yesterday's strip, the attending phsyician tells tells Elly that they are waiting on tests to see what is wrong with Elizabeth and thus cannot yet release her.

Panel 2: An apologetic Elly tells Lizzie that she has to stay for one more night

Panel 3: When Lizzie asks her if she's being truthful about having to stay the one more night, Elly says that she is

Panel 4: Lizzie's almost disappointed sounding "Is that all?" baffles Elly.

Summary: It probably shouldn't. No one telling her to pick up her toys, no one feeding her awful food, no Mike hovering over.....why wouldn't she want to stay?
