The last strip before the Lost Week has Carrie tell Mike that family harmony is best achieved by not being forced together.

(Strip Number 224, Original Publication Date, 30 January 1982)

Panel 1: We start things off with Carrie packing her suitcase for the trip back to Winnipeg. As she does so, Mike asks "Are you leaving soon, Grandma?" and she tells him "Yes, dear."

Panel 2: Since he'd like her to stay, he asks howcome she doesn't sell her house in Winnipeg an'come live there with them.

Panel 3: He then says that they all get along well together; she knows this...

Panel 4: ...and wants it to stay that way.

Summary: This is because a little of the Pattersons goes a loooooooooong way, people. Sure, they get along now but what Elly calls family politics and what normal people call honest disagreements about certain issues tend to make sure that sooner or later, resentment and screaming matches will set in. As for next week, perhaps we're in for the origin of a phrase that we haven't heard up until now: Lizardbreath. My personal belief is that Elly will punish him for saying something he didn't and he decided to make the crime fit the punishment.
