Mary Worth 220

Please don't eat at the Bum Boat. Please don't eat at the Bum Boat. If Ron takes Mary Worth to the Bum Boat, despite their ridiculously early reservation, Jeff might see them, or the wait staff might get suspicious, but no doubt it will only make things worse. And that would mean a plot might start to develop, which could be too much for Mary Worth fans to handle.

But the main reason I don't want them to go to the Bum Boat is that I am only aware of three restaurants in Santa Royale: The Bum Boat (★★★); Three Trees (★★★★); and the Junction Road Cafe (★). And it's always fun to discover a new place to eat.

I was thrilled by the panel above. Since Mary Worth read the Charterstone bylaws and discovered that, yes, pets are allowed, everyone is getting dogs to carry. And it makes them so happy!

Which was the place that had the picture of the fish playing video games? Was that the Bum Boat? I'd like to see that picture again.

I don't really care what happens to Mary and her new boyfriend. You know she won't really be able to let go of all those years tormenting Jeff with an almost relationship, so this is just a sideline story.

I just want to see that stupid fish again. :)

What in the name of all that is holy is that woman carrying?

If cats and dogs could breed together this is what their offspring would look like.

My initial reaction was that it was a small child with hypertrichosis but this is clearly not the case otherwise Mary would be indulging in a bout of sympathetic arm-touching and bombarding the parents with demeaning platitudes.

they are totally going to the bum boat. awesome!!!!!! the fact that mary casually asked where they are going = bum boat. it's practically a law of mary worth. so excited - the bum boat is hands down the hemingway complex's favorite fictional restaurant.

I was so confused by this panel; at first I thought those people were leaving Mary's apartment as Jeff arrived. Like, they were her previous amateur-counseling appointment. Maybe she moonlights as a pet counselor (or a veterinarian)? Or maybe she "found" another "lost" dog and then returned it to its owners, thus artificially inflating her "persons helped" count? They do seem really happy.

Oh, I KNOW they're going to the Bum Boat, and Jeff's gonna be there! Jeff thoroughly let me down a few panels ago when I believed he was going to go medieval on Mary, and then wussed out as usual. Carpe diem, Jeff! Lunge out of your booth, grab a huge plastic lobster and clean her clock! Everyone in the restaurant will stand and cheer you on! Ron will probably cheer the loudest! Go for it, dude! Redeem yourself!

No, I'm still hoping that Jeff is there with another woman. I've been rooting for Jeff to "win" one ever since the Chester storyline. YOUR TIME IS NOW, JEFF.
