(Strip Number 211, Original Publication Date, 7 January 1982)
Panel 1: We fast-forward to eight in the evening or so and return our focus to the Pattermanse; as we do, we find Mike, who's in his pajamas, not wanting to go to bed. He tells Will "Aw, Grandpa! Just one more game! I don't want to go to bed...pleaaaaaaaaaaase, just one more game?"
Panel 2: Will says no.
Panel 3: Mike thinks about things for a second.....
Panel 4: ....and asks if that's a for-real no.
Summary: It's sort of a change of pace for Mike to have to deal with a grown-up who doesn't roar, scream or whine, isn't it? This sort of quiet authority, while inconvenient from the getting-away-with-murder standpoint, is a healthy thing because it shows Mike that there are other parenting styles aside from incompetence.
