We begin this year's Halloween arc with Mike and Lawrence talking about how ET went around au naturel; given that Mike lives with and is the creation of a woman who wants to be seen as making her own costumes, the subtle masterstroke of getting a boughten costume is not an option.

(Strip Number 4243, Original Publication Date, 15 October 1982)

Panel 1: We start this mini-arc with Lawrence asking Mike what he wants to be for Halloween this year; Mike says that he was thinking about going as ET.

Panel 2: A mildly-shocked Lawrence tells him that ET went around naked; Mike tells him that he'd wear clothes.

Panel 3: Lawrence asks him how would people then know that he was ET

Panel 4: Mike yells back that he'd tell them.

Summary: This reads less like something that children would say and more like something Henchmen 21 and 24 would argue about; this is because we're looking at the result of Lynn trying to guess what children would say because she'd sort of isolated herself from her kids so as to keep company with her muse.
