Lawrence's petulant comment about his stepfather leads to treacly wordplay that Greg never really lived up to.

(Strip Number 4747, Original Publication Date, 14 January 1987)

Panel 1: Having noticed that Lawrence's mom and new dad are leaving, Mike tells Lawrence that he thinks that his parents are getting ready to leave now.

Panel 2: When Lawrence corrects Mike by referring to Connie and Greg as his mother and STEP-father, Connie starts to freak the Hell out.

Panel 3: Greg doesn't mind being called a stepfather.

Panel 4: This is because he expects they will take many steps together.

Summary: Sadly, he never lived up to this promise. The next major interaction between the two of them was when Greg threw him out of the house and after that, nothing aside from an admission that he's a non-factor in his stepson's life.
