Connie's telling Lawrence that it's time to drive back home leads to a reminder that children just squabble over nothing for no good reason because WE MOMS can't be asked to understand the issues at hand.

(Strip Number 1001, Original Publication Date, 6 January 1986)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Connie tell Mike and Lawrence to finish up their game because she and Lawrence have to leave for home in half an hour.

Panel 2: Michael complains they only just got there.

Panel 3: Connie reminds Mike that they've been there two days so he and Lawrence should probably should be tired of each other by now.

Panel 4: Since Connie doesn't understand how children interact, she's baffled when Michael says they haven't even started to fight yet.

Summary: Any notes should be all about how what children fight about magically becomes meaningless and silly now that it's no longer happening to Lynn. Also, a year and change from now, they'll have plenty of time to fight each other because Greg'll be moving them next door to show how great he is by moving Connie closer to her beloved Elly.
