Lizzie learns that one should not take a pacifier away from a teething new-born.

(Strip Number 1166, Original Publication Date, 11 June 1987)

Panel 1: Having noticed that Baby Leah still has a pacifier, Lizzie asks Christopher why that is.

Panel 2: Rather than explain that she's teething, Chris just pops it out of her mouth.

Panel 3: This results in her screaming terribly and going all red in the face.

Panel 4: When he pops it back in and it soothes Leah, Elizabeth understands.

Summary: The reason for all of this is that Lizzie might not know what teething is and also it's a great sight gag.
