(Strip Number 228, Original Publication Date, 11 February 1982)
Panel 1: We start off with Carrie hugging Lizzie as she tells her goodbye and to be a good girl.
Panel 2: Will tells a somewhat downcast Mike 'bye and the next time he sees him, Mike'll whip him at checkers for sure.
Panel 3: John tells Mike to say goodbye while Carrie asks if there's no goodbye for Grandma.
Panel 4: Mike cries his heart out as he says "I hate goodbyes!!"
Summary: This, too, is fridge fodder. It's also a reminder that Mike really doesn't much like saying goodbye to people; eventually, he'll remind us that Lizzie just doesn't know how long goodbyes are.
