For some reason, Melody is evil and stuck-up because she lacks the ability to read Lizzie's mind and thus will not accept her apology.

(Strip Number 4765, Original Publication Date, 17 February 1987)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Lizzie and Melody standing at the bus stop. As they do so, Lizzie thought-bubbles that she'd like to thank Melody for the Valentine.

Panel 2: She then thought-bubbles that she wishes she'd given her a Valentine instead of throwing it away in a stupid act of rebellion.

Panel 3: She then thought-bubbles that she wishes that they could be friends.

Panel 4: Lizzie concludes by thought-bubbling "No wonder they call her stuck-up. She won't even talk to me." Whoever it is that wrote the description calls her on her accidental hypocrisy because she's doing the same thing Melody is: not talking.

Summary: Getting angry at someone and judging them harshly because he or she cannot read Liz's mind is, sadly, a family thing. Eventually, she'll be angry at Anthony for not seeing and reading her thought-bubbles.
