Elly's prediction that children can instantly adapt to sudden shifts in their environment collides messily with the reality that Molly still sees Milborough as a place of exile designed to cut her off from her friends.

(Strip Number 4822, Original Publication Date, 23 June 1987)

Panel 1: As she continues moving into the new house, Connie complains to Elly about the hardship of not getting immediate buy-in to throwing her weight around like a dumb bully.

Panel 2: This is because while Lawrence has been excited to move back, the girls hate the idea because Connie and Greg uprooted them from their social circle for a questionable reason.

Panel 3: Questionable Reason In Question Elly makes an overly optimistic prediction that once they get settled in, they'll be fine with living in a strange place where they're the new kids.

Panel 4: Molly declares that she will go into the house, but don't expect her to live there.

Summary: Elly should probably stop talking about things she doesn't know about. She spends her time giving Connie terrible advice and it drives a wedge between her and her step-daughters.
