So this is the conversation that Mary Worth broke up with Dr. Jeff Corey over. Ouch.
You've got to hand it to Mary, she certainly is resilient (the polite way of saying "tough old bird"). Much as it only took her a few panels to absolve herself of any guilt over the murder of Aldo, Jeff is suddenly forgotten the instant that her new boy-toy is on the line."So tell me, Ron, what are you wearing? A smile and nothing else? Oh, you really are the living end! I'll be there as soon as I can."
I don't know what's worse--Mary's demure "schoolgirl" pose in Panel One, or Ron's semi-invalid posture [He'p, me, Mary! He'p me!] in Panel Two.
Between the jaundice-colored speech balloons and the Magical Mary Ever-Shiftin' Condo Interior(TM), I can't follow a darned thing in this strip. Except that I know which one is Ron now. And as a result of getting to know Ron, I now greatly prefer Richard.
If he has any brains at all, Ron's next line will be "No, really, I'm fine now. So you can stop visiting me. You can get on with your own life. No, please, I insist. Stop! PLEASE... LEAVE ME ALONE!!!"
Mary's so cute! Look at her, all shy and awkward, but secretly delighted! It's so cute it made me laugh out loud.Of course, she's thrilled to have a conversation about how great she is, finally. "I'm so glad... that I was awesome enough to help you! It's good to hear. Wh--you're still sad about the whole 'mom' thing? Donna was a special person. Does that help? Yes I thought so. You're welcome. Again."
What is going on with Mary's chest in this strip? It's the most lopsided thing I've seen in a while. And Jeff's still interested?
