Liz's attempt to squash her nose into a shape that will make people love her again fails because she needs to breathe.

(Strip Number 1400, Original Publication Date, 27 January 1989)

Panel 1: That night, we find Liz getting ready for bed. As she fluffs up her pillow, she thinks to herself that maybe if she sleeps on her face, she'll be able to mash her nose up so it's not all turned up.

Panel 2: She then sort of pile-drives herself into her bedding to accelerate the process.

Panel 3: Moments later, she comes up gasping for air because she forgot that she kind of needs to breathe.

Panel 4: She sits right-side up and thought-bubbles that this is going to be harder than she thought.

Summary: Tomorrow, she endures something even more horrible than self-asphyxiation: the useless, unsolicited and hypocritical advice of a mother who never seems to have had any use for her since she developed free will.
