Hahaha "Like a swallow returning to Capistrano"! Mary is so totally cruel. "Who knows what those swallows get up to while they're away. Certainly not *you*, with those knees. But flying has its annoyances too, you know. Still, I'll be back, at some point in the future. Don't wait up."

lol Jeff's head spun around so fast when Mary mentioned Frank that it reminded me of that girl in the Exorcist! too funny.

So, is that Mary's way of telling Jeff that she won't be back until March 19??

Just when you thought Mary was cold, turns out she's frikkin' arctic. Froze the color right out of her blouse in that second panel.

One of the many benefits of living nestled in a distorted area of the time-space continuum is clearly the extensive counter space.

That thing just stretches on, and on, and on.

That thing would confuse MC Escher.

I could sublet that thing.

Yep, we knew it all along. Jeff is just Mary's boy toy, to do with as she pleases. As long as she has "saving his life" to hold over his head, Jeff will never have even an ounce of self respect. We gotta love how Mary exploits Jeff's insecurity, especially after his flareup over her last would be boyfriend. Yes sir, he'll be there for her when she returns.... yes, Mary, please, please return....you will return won't you? Pathetic.

Of course, it could be that Jeff's inner masochist need's Mary's inner sadist. Now that would be a interesting if it escalated.

Are they putting dirty dishes back into the closet?

I think it's pretty clear that Karen Moy just can't stand Jeff. First she tried to angle him out of the story with the whole Ron Amalfi plot. It is obvious that readers complained, however, so she got them back together only to drop them both out of the story for a few months to harp on the evils of the internet. Now, as soon as they are back, Mary's off to see an old fling and he's nursing a bum knee. I can't say that I blame Moy, he is dead boring, but this is a woman who took us step by step through the process of a phishing scam, so it can't be boredom that makes her not like him. What is it? What did Jeff ever do to her?

Actually, the line on Frank's neck proves that he's just a doll for Mary's amusement. Just like G.I.Joe, Big Jim, and all the other dolls from my childhood with heads that only turn side to side.
