The one where Mike thinks curfew is when he gets lectured about leaving Elly with an empty gas tank to fill up.

Panel 1: We find Mike, Lawrence and Gordon on a drive of an evening. Gord asks Mike when his mom wants the car back. He says 10 pm.

Panel 2: This displeases Lawrence and Gordon because they'd like an impossible option: being able to drift around like a plastic bag caught in a breeze.

Panel 3: Mike doesn't know about that because the way he sees it, returning it at ten is just about right. Lawrence asks why.

Panel 4: Mike says that it's because when he expected to run out of gas.

Summary: This is the first strip in which Mike won't pay to fill up his mom's car because he's a leech. It's also prelude to howtheduck showing you Mike breaking it off with Martha in an amazingly cold-blooded and heartless manner.
