Snarky Candiru2

Friday, 8 January 2016

We set up Connie's moving into Thelma Baird's house by having Elly express a desire to have Connie over for coffee more often.

(Strip number 4743, Original Publication Date, 9 January 1987)

Panel 1: As they drink coffee, Connie says that having Greg's girls move in with them is going to be interesting.

Panel 2: We set up Connie screeching about BEING TRAPPED WITH WILD ANIMALS!!! when she says that Molly and Gayle are nice but they're a handful.

Panel 3: She then sets up the punchline by asking Elly if she can see her with a husband and three children.

Panel 4: Elly says sure, she can.....she'd just like to see her more often.

Summary: We'll be seeing her, Molly and Gayle in about five months. We'll also be seeing how wonderful Greg isn't when he gets lost when it's time to listen to his children about their issues.
