Panel 1: AAAAAH! The house is talking! No, wait---it's only framed this way so we can get another look at the fire escape, which I'm sure is soon going to play a crucial role. Either Merrie falls off it (sure, Mike and Dee are sooooooo careful about always keeping a sharp eye on their sproggen.) or it will have to be used to escape a, y'know, fire.
Panel 2: I like how this one is squashed, just as Deanna is squashing the inevitable suggestion from Mira.
Panel 3: "I've got to go, dear." Well, looks like Mira is finally recognizing the brick wall she's up against. More silhouettes, and more legs-only shadows.
Panel 4: So the tape is still there? Argh. And the aforementioned "quotes" seem to have a purpose for once: they clarify the way the Pattersons have "a side" in "name only". The foyer is common, you guys. The only person who owns it is Lovey.
Panel 5: Deanna has picked up the "pun bug". Lord give me strength. Merrie looks like she's putting her mind somewhere else. And why is it that every blonde female in this strip has her own wind machine?
