Mary Worth Adventures #438

Careful here, Ted. Dr. Corey knows a lot about Vietnam. Don't blow your cover the first week of this story. Drag it out for months and months.

From the two panels, it looks like Mary has jumped up and started circling this guy. She's sizing him up to take him down!

I'm sorry, but that speech balloon is NOT pointing at Mary, there's someone outside the window!

haha! That's the crazy dude out on the sidewalk yelling in!

When is the last time that there were two Mary Worth strips that Mary didn't not speak?

A careful geometrical analysis reveals that the question about Vietnam, coming from Mary's left but not from Ted, must be from the waiter serving Mary her glass of white wine.

I just love Moy's cliche sinister mustache. He looks like a character out of a 1930's movie.

Oh, did someone mention Vietnam?
Here's Mary's opening to jump in and tell about how Dr. Jeff Corey, M.D. lay dying, DYING! in Vietnam, and how she, MARY, flew over there and saved the day! And how Adrian and her sorry brother wouldn't lift a finger to help.
THEN she will finally ask, "so how did you two meet?" This should be good!

I would like to subscribe to Nation's Geography magazine. Maybe I'll head over to Enormushop.com and order.

If this guy is on the level, he should know all about that Scotland DVD that Toby recently purchased, too.

Hey, we may finally know the name of this fine dining establishment--look at the menu in that man's hands. I think it says Golden(?) Corridor. Am I reading that right?

Maggie said...

I don't know what to think of the look Mary's giving Ted in this panel. Is she intrigued by this jetsetting bad boy? ("bad boy" meaning "guy with a mustache") Or is she trying to stare down his challenge of "I've seen things you wouldn't believe"? What wouldn't I believe, Ted? Huh?? What wouldn't I believe?!

MARY WILL NEVER BACK DOWN, TED. You gotta know when to hold'm and know when to fold'm.

Tried myself to make out the name Vickie. There is an "and" in the name...I think. Golden and Coridor? Totally goofy.

Re: "I just love Moy's cliche sinister mustache. He looks like a character out of a 1930's movie."

Now, now, if he were really a sinister villain out of Moy's cliche handbook, she would have drawn him with a twee little Van Dyke beard!

"The Golden Corridor is a term used to describe the area around the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (Interstate 90) in the Chicago metropolitan area."

Whatta classy place, Adrian(Queenie) was right!

I'm sorry Robert, but Snidley Whiplash did not have a Van Dyke and he is the cartoonification of sinister.

Moy doesn't draw the strip, comic veteran Joe Giella does. And he's so old that he was still a comic veteran when that gangster look was first in vogue.

"I'm gonna marry yer daughter, see? We're gonna make babies, see? Lots of 'em, all over th' place, see? Nnnyeah, all over! And there's nuthin' you can do about it, coppah! Nuthin'! Nnnyeah, see?"

Mary was also alive at the time, having recently hollowed out the milkman's wife and crawled into her body which she continues to operate from within.
