Mike and the branch too far......

Of course, there's another odd problem that Mike has to deal with in the Middle Years: Lawrence's step-sister Molly. As I've said before, she seems to me to be a sort of coming attractions reel for the problems John and Elly will on themselves when it comes to dealing with April. Why, a person could be forgiven for assuming that an old strip with her is a later-day strip with the Martian creature.

The problem Mike's stupidity causes is that like any normal, stupid child he decides to play voyeur and gets his stupid self caught. Quickly identifying the dumb kid from next door as the ring-leader, Molly lands on him with both feet and the dolt ends up getting grounded for his troubles. Add in Brian telling him that he shouldn't have bothered in the first place and the whole thing is a tidy little object lesson about how girls aren't objects. The problem I have is that it didn't take; while John's 'advice' didn't help, Mike's being an evasive clod did more damage.
