In today's strip, Elly greets Georgia with a peppy, upbeat version of the phrase "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here."

(Strip Number 4248, Original Publication Date, 11 November 1982)

Panel 1: Phil tells Elly that he'd like her to meet Georgia.

Panel 2: Instead of telling him the last name that Lynn still doesn't see fit to have assigned her, he looks at his watch and tells his big sis that he's known this woman for 147 hours, 11 minutes and 35 seconds.

Panel 3: He also says that since the two of them get along so well, he thought he'd take her to meet the family.

Panel 4: Elly tells Georgia that he actually means that he wants to see how she deals with stress.

Summary: Har-de-freaking-har, Lynn, we get it; your children are soooooooooo horrible and chaotic that being in their presence is a brutal, demoralizing ordeal. It amazes me that a woman with such a negative view of her children was able to hoodwink millions of people into thinking that she was writing a family-friendly strip.
