In today's anachronistic strip, Mike, Gordo and Lawrence spend so much time engaging in antisocial behavior that they don't actually watch the movie Elly is using as a babysitter.

(Strip Number 6086, Original Publication Date, 22 August 1982)

Panel 1: As our story continues, we find Mike, Gord and Lawrence at a movie theater; as they try to find somewhere to sit, Mike tells Lawrence to keep her moving.

Panel 2: Having sat down, Gordon tells them not to chuck their empty snack containers until after the light go out.

Panel 3: The three of them join the crowd in cheering at something they're seeing.

Panel 4: Mike, having turned his popcorn holder into a hat, sticks his tongue out at a boy with glasses in the row before him while giving him a Bronx cheer.

Panel 5: He then grins maniacally as he sticks gum into the hair of the little girl who's sitting next to Boy With Glasses.

Panel 6: Having seen something that impresses them, Mike and Gordon hug one another.

Panel 7: As the thing wraps up, Mike shows his appreciation by whistling loudly.

Panel 8: As they leave the theater, Gordon says "Pretty neat movie, wasn't it, Mike?"

Panel 9: Mike's "Yeah....what was it?" baffles his friends a little.

Summary: It shouldn't; that's because Mike is usually too busy making an annoying jerk of himself to know what's going on around him. His inability to sit down, be quiet and pay attention to his surroundings is not only why he didn't see the movie, it's why he sucks as a student and it's why he's a crappy son, husband, father and above all brother.
