Mary Worth 264

I hope we can continue to enjoy this too! This is the most thrilling Mary Worth plot ever, and should it conclude, I mean, where would we go from here?

My flight out of Ohio was canceled late Wednesday night, so I decided to drive home to Maryland. I saw a family in a bit of a panic because the single dad was trying to rent a car and all his credit cards had demagnetized. I asked myself, "What would Mary do?" and offered them a ride as well. We got them to Baltimore in time for the Orioles game at 1 p.m. - their last stop on their annual baseball stadium tour. But I'm so tired that Mary Worth looks brilliant to me.

Boy, that was nice of you, Wanders - but is it really what Mary would do? I think she'd give them a lecture about planning and foresight. "As someone once said, better safe than sorry!" And then she'd point them toward the courtesy phones and give them a quarter to call their credit card company -- or a hotel, or a cab. And then she'd go home and spend the next week telling Toby all about the poor unfortunates whose lives she changed at the airport.

Mary! Stop grabbing my hand every time I try and sip my drink! I'm becoming seriously dehydrated over here!

Yes, the only thing stopping us from having this comfortable mundane routine is you cancelling our dates to go out with other guys.

Wouldn't you just love to grab both ends of that stylish scarf and PULL as hard as you can? Ohh... did I say that out loud?

It seems to me that Mary should be concerned about those two fish poised to nibble on her noggin and the back of her neck.

Mollie, YES. Mary would totally tell the story of giving unfortunates a quarter incessantly. Which would naturally segue into her oh so unfortunate childhood.

Dog gone it Mary let's get married.

Ohh Jeff you'll never own me... I'm a dirty root in a...no I'm a wandering seafood... no... ohhh my scarf is so binding!

lordjohnwhorfin--Mary was quite safe from those wall fishes. They were paralyzed by being thoroughly stupified from the unbearably inane and cliche-laden conversation between these two old dopes. However, they must have perked up when Jeff picked up the check and hustled Mary into his sad, old-man-smelling Taurus. They live to chew her head off another day!
