The one where Liz whines that she isn't ready to stop being the baby of the family.

(Original Publication Date, 22 January 1991)

Panel 1: Later that day, we find John trying to console Liz. As she stares off into space, he asks what the matter is because he knows something is wrong. Having finally remembered her plaintively asking if he'll still love her when the new baby comes, he asks if that could be the problem.

Panel 2: She cries and says that all she ever hears is him and Elly talking about the new baby this, the new baby that and the new baby something else.

Panel 3: He explains to her that this is an important time; there's a lot to do because the new baby is going to come along and change just about everything. She knows this....

Panel 4: She then says that the OLD baby isn't ready yet.

Summary: Judging from the fact that Lynn takes pride in never wanting to be ready to be a sibling, we should expect notes congratulating herself on being a creep to Alan.
