We end the Space Babe arc with Elly getting all gobsmacked because Lizzie thinks that being a mommy is easy. This is because Lynn never learned to draw a rueful smile.

(Strip Number 4736, Original Publication Date, 26 December 1986)

Panel 1: We start things off with Dawn going 'oooooohhhhh' in appreciation when Lizzie shows her Space Babe Phaedra.

Panel 2: As Elly's silhouette approaches, Lizzie says that Dawn can hold her for a little while but she gots to be careful.

Panel 3: As Elly smiles, Lizzie puts the doll to bed and tells Dawn about how she fed and changed her and she didn't cry once.

Panel 4: Elly goes all gobsmacked when Elizabeth comes to the conclusion that being a mom is EASY.

Summary: This is because Lynn never realized that it would make more sense to do what Jan Eliot would have done and have Elly look at the 'camera' with a mildly displeased look on her face so that we could debate if she were saying "Yeah, RIGHT!!!" or "Just wait, kiddo. You'll find out."
