Strip by: Conor

Lois: This is Trixie, our youngest.
Elderly passer-by: I can see the family resemblance.
Trixie: {thinking} I have Mom's eyes and Mr. Thurston's nose.

The author writes:

A sequel of sorts to my previous Hi and Lois edit. By replacing Trixie's original thought with something more... biologically possible, the implications become somehow still less risqué than in the original. Trixie now seems to have noticed that she and her siblings don't look as much like their dad as they do the next-door neighbour... Which might explain Hi's behaviour towards his ostensible best friend in my previous edit. Ah, drama!

Original Hi and Lois: 2011-11-16 (official site is paywalled, but strip is viewable at this Comics Curmudgeon post).
