Lynn has Mike make a nasty comment at the expense of city workers when justifying his malingering.

(Strip Number 4950, Original Publication Date, 5 April 1988)

Panel 1: We start the mini-arc with John handing the Mike and Lizzie rakes and telling them that he wants them to do a good job cleaning up the yard.

Panel 2: Mike's angry look tells us that he's going to find a way around being told to act like a real work crew.

Panel 3: A while later, John comes upon the unpleasant spectacle of Mike standing around watching iLzzie do all the work and reminds him that they 'agreed' to do this like a real work crew. Mike says that they are.

Panel 4: His saying that Lizzie's the guy who works while he's the guy that stands an'watches staggers John.

Summary: Not only is this Lynn being a bitch to the city workers who keep her from living in a pile of her own filth, it's Mike trying to get out of what his nitwit parents accidentally teach him is a cruel burden. John and Elly are probably going to die not realizing that they're shitty salespeople for housework.
