Return to flashback land, and despite the fact that LIZ is telling the story, this strip is all about Mike.

I guess this is the example of Mike being dramatic that Liz talked about yesterday.  

This is a normal kind of rivalry is within the normal bounds of sibling relations, and Elly reassures Mike he is loved.  Can't really fault that. 

So instead, I will direct everyone's attention to panel four.

This style of head back mouth wide open reminds me of another cartoonist, but I can't put my finger on it.

Oh!  Did you know that apparently Lynn was GOOD FRIENDS with Charles Schulz?
