(Strip Number 232, Original Publication Date, 19 March 1982)
Panel 1: Now that the evil sewing machine has been taken care of, Elly compliments Anne because she doesn't look pregnant; given that when Elly was carrying April, she looked like she gained a young adult, I think she means that she doesn't look obese.
Panel 2: We confirm that suspicion by having Anne gush that she's lost weight.
Panel 3: Elly smiles manically and asks "Diet?"; Anne frowns and says "Nope."
Panel 4: Her reply of "Nausea" confuses and alarms Elly.
Summary: What it should do is inspire a sympathetic frown; it does in me and I'm a man. I can imagine damned well that a lot of the ladies reading this would feel for Annie instead of suffering input failure like Elly does.
