(Strip Number 6095, Original Publication Date, 12 December 1982)
Panel 1: We start things off with Lizzie sitting on the couch contentedly sucking her thumb.
Panel 2: John smiles as he pulls her hand out of her mouth with an audible pop. Since he's a bit thick, he doesn't actually notice that this 'helpful' gesture isn't appreciated.
Panel 3: He then saunters off and tells her that if she keeps doing that, it'll fall off; since his back is turned, he doesn't realize that he's left her vulnerable to the other insensitive prick male: Michael.
Panel 4: Mike grins a hateful grin when he tells her that if she presses her belly-button, her legs will fall off.
Panel 5: Lizzie tries sticking up for herself by greeting his assholish comment with a Bronx cheer.
Panel 6: Since he cannot let any attempt to defend herself stand, he tells her that if she blows raspberries like that her ears will fall off.
Panel 7: We see the results of his success: a small child backed into a corner screaming in helpless terror.
Panel 8: Elly comes in and asks a crying Lizzie what's wrong.
Panel 9: She wails 'I falling apart!!!!" in a sort of terror that would melt the heart of anyone remotely human. That lets John and Mike out right there, people.
Summary: Panel 10 would have probably taken the form of a panicky John and Mike doing that stupid God-damned palms out gesture as they convinced weak-minded Elly that Lizzie is too young to be so sensitive. What? You expected them to admit that they're in the wrong? That's only for the weak.
