The one where Liz is a smart-ass about Mike's having to babysit Anne's demonspawn.

(Original Publication Date, 30 January 1991)

Panel 1: We start things off with Anne on the phone. She explains to Liz who she is and tells her that she hopes that Michael can come over and baby-sit before asking if he's in.

Panel 2: Liz 'checks' by telling Mike "Phone's for you! MMMMM, kissy, kissy....it's a GIRL!!" like a sitcom jerk child. Since Mike doesn't realize that he's being set up because he had an attack of amnesia as to how oafish Liz is becoming, he's all smiles as he asks "It is?"

Panel 3: He's got a goofy grin on his face as he asks "Hello?"

Panel 4: After the call, Rage-Face Mike bops Liz on the head for tricking him.

Summary: We're about to see WHY Mike wants to take off all the time after the baby is born. He's afraid that Little Whoever is going to be the same sort of tear-away the Nichols kids are. He should really be worried that the baby will grow up to be the same sort of malignant dickhole he is.
