We switch from Phil annoying Elly to Phil going on a date with Connie; the first stage is his having to contend with a nephew who gets most of his distorted view of adult life from the playground instead from network television.

(Strip Number 262, Original Publication Date, 19 May 1982)

Panel 1: As our story continues, we find Phil, who's got a cigarette perched on his lip, adjusting his shirt collar or something; as he does so, Mike comes up to him and asks him if he's got another hot date.

Panel 2: As he combs his hair, Phil asks Mike what he knows about it; as Mike smells the bottle of Men's Cologne brand men's cologne Phil is using, he says 'Everything.'

Panel 3: Phil, who's combing out his mustache, asks Mike if he gets his information from the PG movies that he doesn't know Elly has forbidden.

Panel 4: He's thus gobsmacked when Mike smilingly says "Nope. Recess."

Summary: That's because, unlike Lynn, he can compare the wild misinformation he picked up off the street with his actual life experience and find the former wanting; the notes will thus be out how children lost something by having network television become their leading source of stereotypes. half-truths and superstitions.
