Elly's whining about how she needs to not tell Mike the truth about Easter causes John to make a wise-ass crack about finding a rabbit that lays eggs.

(Strip Number 242, Original Publication Date, 9 April 1982)

Panel 1: We start with Elly telling John that Michael wants real proof that the Easter Bunny exists.

Panel 2: Since she's too stupid to tell him the real truth and a panicky idiot who assumes that the consequences are going to be far worse than they are, she splays her tentacle fingers and makes the Palms-Out Gesture of Misaimed Martyrdom as she whines that she doesn't want to tell him the truth yet because she's not ready to do so; she wants to know how best to default on her responsibility as a parent and duck the issue.

Panel 3: John smiles and tells her to find a rabbit that lays eggs.

Summary: This would be irritating enough standing on its own; given that the notes will be all about how awful it was that Aaron asked questions and wanted to know things, it'll be far worse.
