While I completely agree with Jeff in substance, I've got to deduct 10 points for style. This is "persuasion?" "Do us both a favor and do exactly what I want." Huh? This must be where Drew got the idiot gene. While Jeff's rhetorical skills have much to be desired, he certainly has revealed his cards to Mary Worth. After all these years of feigning admiration for Mary's meddling, Jeff is probably going to find himself at a Bum Boat table for one. How convenient it will be when Mary, after spending the night in a tearful, resentful rage, runs to the arms of Ron Amalfi and goes on a Twista tirade about Jeff's lack of compassion and general narcissism.
