The one where Elly doesn't realize that Mike isn't actually helping her out.

(Original Publication Date, 1 December 1990)

Panel 1: We start things off with Liz fogging up a window.

Panel 2: Liz then writes something on the window.

Panel 3: Mike is horrified when it turns out that what Liz wrote in the window is two crude caricatures laughing at the statement "Michael is a dweeb."

Given Mike's thin skin and lack of self-awareness, one can see that this is a horrible provocation that might need to be answered in blood. He's too big a dweeb to realize that she'd be justified in calling him something a whole lot worse.

Panel 4: As rage-faced Mike wipes away the accurate assessment of who and what he is, Elly chockes up, smiles and is grateful that every so often, he does a little just for her.

Summary: This sort of "It's all about me" business makes me wanna fog up a window and doodle "Elly is an entitled snot" in the misted up part.
