(Strip Number 4134, Original Publication Date, 26 February 1982)
Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Annie and Elly having a coffee klatsch; Elly sighs and whines that there are a dozen reasons that she's gained weight; since she regards not looking like Kate Moss as a sign that she's worthless and weak, she wishes that she had a valid excuse for being the after picture on a Jenny Craig ad.
Panel 2: Annie tells her to try using the one she gave Steve last night.
Panel 3: Her calm-sounding declaration that she's pregnant makes Elly's eyes bulge out in shock and almost make her spit out her coffee.
Summary: Why this is any concern of Elly's is a mystery; why it's a shock will be demonstrated Monday. Simply put, she took Annie's vague mutterings about maybe only wanting one child as an iron-clad thing.
