Badly drawn butts: Panel 3.

Panel 1: When is this conversation taking place? Is it the same day as the accident? If so, I can't see how Deanna's had a chance to observe a pattern of behavior. Presumably, Merrie only encountered the stairs once since the accident: when they were returning to the apartment. And what an odd thing to worry about, anyway. I don't think this would turn Merrie into a total neurotic; it wasn't anywhere near as traumatic as April's near-drowning, which led to a (since conquered) fear of water. Plus which, if she becomes cautious around stairs---well, good!

Also, why does Merrie suddenly have Texas Beauty Queen hair? (No offense to any Texans.) And what's up with Mike and Dee's silhouettes in the background? It almost looks like the dialogue should be "What did you do to our daughter? Answer me!" "She's fine, honey! She's fine, really...oh no, not my face! Please, not my face! [sob]"

Panel 2: Well! A pleasant exchange between two neighbors! And "Winnie" is a fairly innocuous name.

Panel 3: "As normal as possible." Whatever that means. But I can't quite read the facial expressions. Except that Deanna's mouth looks wide enough to engulf a school of fish. Someone forgot they're not still drawing Lovey?

Panel 4: Oh my stars! Deanna is affronted! The nerve of that SeaweedSpit woman!

Listen up, you mop-headed twit. YOU DO NOT OWN THE HOUSE. You are SHARING it with OTHER PEOPLE. And it is very white trash to leave kid toys in the yard. The stroller I might grant you, if it's folded up and it's possible to put it someplace that still allows people to walk, bring in packages, and get to their mailboxes. But not the tricycle in the front yard. If you're going to do that, you might as well have Merrie go outside in jeans with a rope belt and drop pebbles into a rusted coffee can. IT IS NOT ALL ABOUT YOU.
