(Strip Number 315, Original Publication Date, 16 September 1982)
Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Elly leaving the Valley Voice's office so she can pick Lizzie up from daycare; as expected, she's in a panic because it's her first morning there and she's almost late.
Panel 2: As she walks into the daycare center's building, Elly thought-bubbles about how she hopes Lizzie is all right but must hate her for leaving her.
Panel 3: Now that she's in the play room, Elly smiles and tells Lizzie that Mommy's here.
Panel 4: Since Lizzie is a trifle forgetful and way too into her playtime, she absent-mindedly asks "Who?"; since Elly is a pessimistic twinkie, she's gobsmacked because she thinks Lizzie's snubbing her.
Summary: This, ladies and gents, is one of the first strips that reminds us that Liz Patterson is about three muffins short of a gift basket; the sad thing is that Elly's negativity and John's obliviousness blind them to the fact that they're raising the All-Canadian Ditz.
