Mary Worth 2745

Just like in The Gift of the Magi, Wilbur has sold his silky combover to purchase the ring for Fabiana. Unlike the The Gift of the Magi, Fabiana doesn't care.

I'm almost positive that Empleado de Joyería is another one of Fabiana's cousins. She's very good at drumming up business for the family.

Maybe if Wilbur stopped living so high on his Santa Royale Tribune expense account, he wouldn't keep meeting gold diggers.

I like Fabiana even more today. Boy, she knows what she's doing. She's figured out that this guy could skip out of the country at any moment, and she wants to make sure he is heavily invested in sticking around. A $30,000 emerald ring seems like a reasonable request. Go, Fabiana, go!

Wilbur has been traveling around the world for over a year, living in hotels and eating room service. So clearly, money isn't the reason for his hesitation as they pick out an engagement ring. Perhaps, deep inside, he still has feelings for Iris. Those two kids have broken up a lot more than they've gotten together, and I for one, can't get enough of their discomfirture.

When Iris was first dating Zak, wasn't he like 22? It really does appear that our theory is correct: The reason he has accomplished so much so quickly is that he is living in a different time-space continuum than Iris. I've said it before (Sunday recaps), Zak will be Iris's age in time for the wedding. He's flying through time at rocket speed, and she's crawling through time like a snail on a fence. It's been years since I pulled out the ol' Dharma Initiative tag, but I think is appropriate.

Looks like Zak traded in his new Porsche for my 1997 Volkswagen New Beetle.

I can't tell you how relieved I am to learn this morning that Zak and Iris really are just drinking coffee. Extra-marital relations are the domain of characters like Charley Smith, Nola Wolvenson, and Entertainer Esme. It's how we know they're bad.

Sometimes a cup of coffee really is just a cup of coffee.

It's been a busy 9 months for Zak. He developed a game of some sort that has made him millions of dollars; founded and staffed Zakiks Studios; and moved from his parents' house into a 12th-floor luxury apartment. Meanwhile, Iris Skyped with her other ex-boyfriend twice, and Mary went on a four-day cruise with Toby. If Iris and Zak get married, will Zak age at a faster rate until he catches up with her? Will Iris and Tommy have to visit him once a week in the nursing home?
