The one in which I wonder if Lynn will remember the "Meet The Johnstons" thing she sent the syndicate that had pregnant Elly ask Lizzie if she hated Vivaldi.

(Original Publication Date, 19 November 1990)

Panel 1: We find ourselves at the dinner table watching Liz react to Elly being in some sort of mild distress. When Liz asks her what's wrong, Elly says it's nothing much because it's just the baby kicking.

Panel 2: As Elizabeth holds her fork in an unusual manner, the baby kicks, rolls and thumps.

Panel 3: Liz looks at Elly kind of strange because the baby is still kicking, rolling and thumping.

Panel 4: When Elly asks "What's the matter.....don't you like linguini", Liz does s sticky-out tongue laugh.

Summary: This is the first strip in a sort of filler about how Elly is eating for two. It's about how Elly will never lose the weight. It's about how uncaring her family is. It's about four strips too long. It's also a remake one of the strips Lynn sent as a sample before the Syndicate hired her.
