It looks like the man in the welder or HAZMAT suit may have dropped something in Mary and Drew's coffee.
I love when Mary passes judgement, but in panel two, I'm having trouble figuring out if she's judging Dr. Kuphut, or Drew, or me.
Holy Easy Peasey! It actually was the hospital heroin cabinet! It's a shame no one has developed a way to limit access and securely check who opens the cabinet. It might require some sort of technology, though, so it may not be worth it.
Also, it's always fun to talk about employees after they've been fired, isn't it H.R. Department? H.R. Department? Are you there?
Professional tip for the women in scrubs. When you hear a shocking rumor about a colleague, keep your exclamations (and exclamation marks) to yourself! Be more like Mary, and you won't find yourself keelhauled into a workplace discrimination suit.
Photobomb! (Thanks to long time Santa Royale Citizen Toots McGee for making this possible.)
Please tell me the next four weeks will be a dual PSA: Olive teaches Mary how to set up an email account, AND Mary teaches Olive how to swim! Because I think I would really enjoy this.
There's something about this panel that reminds me of my father, who asked the doctor if he could keep my brother's placenta. He kept it for years in a jar of formaldehyde in his high school classroom. He was, and still is, an awesome teacher.
I'm not sure how long Olive's torso cyst will last in her purse, though.
Having spent more time than I like in hospitals this year, for procedures that were both easy-peasy and less so, I'd have to say the oddest thing about Mountview Hospital is how little business they seem to do. Seriously, where are the cars? I know they have tons of doctors there, but where is everyone parking?
