Elly likes Georgia because she sees a lot of what she thinks she is in her.

(Strip Number 1128, Original Publication Date, 28 March 1987)

Panel 1: We find John and Elly in bed as she tells him that she's really glad Phil and Georgia are getting married.

Panel 2: This is because Georgia is the girlfriend she likes the best.

Panel 3: She's bright, sincere and has all the qualities Elly hoped for in a sister-in-law.

Panel 4: When she goes on to say that she sees a lot of herself in Georgia, John looks on in mild distaste.

Summary: This sort of foreshadows the reason why Elly likes Anthony's stepmother in that she too defers to the Sainted Patterswine.
