Snarky Candiru2

Connie foreshadows the way Mike behaves twenty odd years later by making it rather clear that her ideal house is the Pattermanse itself.

(Strip Number 4778, Original Publication Date, 5 March 1987)

Panel 1: We find Elly returning home from an exhausting day of helping Connie house hunt. She tells John that they scoured the town looking for houses.

Panel 2: She then tells John that Connie has only seen one house that appeals to her.

Panel 3: John asks "Oh? Which one is that?"

Panel 4: When she says "This one," John is appropriately flummoxed.

Summary: This, I should think, set an ugly precedent in that it established an anonymous-looking split level in a suburb as a Xanadu people would run over their own mother to inhabit.
