Patty builds a reputation as a marbles shark in upcoming strips, especially against Charlie Brown. This is the one that first establishes her fearsomeness at the game. One might take these strips as foreshadowing the other Patty.
The use of Schroeder as the concerned friend in this strip, instead of Shermy, is a bit interesting.
