Mary Worth 359



Or, Mary, perhaps Lynn just doesn't enjoy meeting you! I think that's a much more logical explanation. After all, Frank has been coaching her to win the ice skating game her entire life. She's a champion driven to succeed. She doesn't have time to let some stranger meddle in her life. She may be my favorite Mary Worth character ever - the first one with any common sense.

What are the odds of seeing an interesting plot twist? I would so cnjoy seeing a steamy affair develop between Frank and Mary resulting in her finally and forever ditching dependable jeff. But, alas, I am quite certain that it will simply be the overbearing father/coach learning the error of his ways from the ever wise Mary. "Cliche" is the only word that comes to mind. Although I must admit to being gratified that Lynn wants nothing to do with Mary. Per haps it has something to do with Frank's attitude toward the deceased mother: Mary:"I'm so sorry to hear that your wife is deceased."
Frank: "Don't be."

I agree anon. What a strange response. Maybe the thought balloon behind his head should have read: She never let me dominate and control my daughter's every move so I could mold her into the skater I never could be and that I eat my heart out every day of my miserable life thinking about.

Love the over-the-top fist Frank is making in that panel. "I'm the expert, see? And these are my five advisers, see? Thumbs, Pointer, Cussy, Ringer and Pinky! Skate like I tells ya or it's yer face, kid!"

Oh, you're about to reap the whirlwind, Frank-o. The mentholated-hard-candy scented whirlwind. MARY'S COMIN'!

It's obvious that Mary is going to eventually resort to a "Tonya Harding" and bop Frank on the knee to get him to realize how much he's hurting his daughter by browbeating her.

The fist seems to be directed more in Mary's direction, as well it should be.
