Mary Worth Adventures #446

As much as this story bores me already, I thrill to know that Mary Worth and Jeff are being forced to sit there and listen to it. It couldn't have happened to a more deserving couple. Suffer, Mary Worth, suffer!

I'm starting to think that Ted Confey is really Drew Corey who has disguised himself by drawing a mustache on his face and started dating his sister in a vain effort to return to his family without the shame of having not stayed in Vietnam. Creepy.

"Happy memories that will be expanded"?

Really? These are the words you've chosen. "Happy memories that will be expanded".

What dialog are you running back and forth willy nilly through the intarwebs translatationer, oh Ms. Moy? And how much can we pay you to stop? That's worth more than a thousand Vietnamese Village dahooziewhatzit donations.

Mary's sidled her chair all the way from Adrian back to Jeff. Crafty little minx, that is...

Ted shall now tell of the horrible burns he suffered in a drunken housefire as a child, leaving him with terrible facial deformities.

Or is he just badly drawn?

Since my genetic testing (black hair with blue highlights)suggestion a few days ago, Drak has gone a step farther with his sibling hypothesis. While Adrien may not have recognized her own brother, surely his father and Meddlin' Mary would. Furthermore, Drew wasn't known for his philanthropic work.

Ted's self proclaimed early childhood in SR does raise suspicions. And it is interesting that Dr. Jeff and Ted's both lost their wife. Has anyone seen a photo of Drew's mother around?

There was a later episode of Leave It To Beaver, when the stories were more about Wally's high school experience than about Beaver's awkward adolescence, in which Wally grows a moustache (Eddie asks him, "Who do you think you are, Cesar Romero?"). There are promo shots of Tony Dow in which he looks EXACTLY like Ted Confey in panel 2. Eerie!

In fact, here's the image.

I think Ted got the "Happy memories that will be expanded" line from a fortune cookie.

"Happy memories that will be expanded--like my arm!" Srsly, I didn't even think that was Adrien's own hand coming up from the bottom of the frame to touch dude's face, because her arm would have to be about six feet long for that to work.

Wait! Todays strip is too much.

1) "My LATE wife, Lydia's death?" If she is lat,e then she is dead already.

2)"Happy memories that will be expanded?" What does that mean? Means revisited or enjoyed, not expanded.

Summary: Mary Worth should not be used as a teaching aid in middle school English.

spent time time in Santa Royale? Perhaps he is Mary's illicit love child? Nah.

Vicki said...

I see...so, basically Ted typed "hot+chicks+Santa+Royale" into the search box of his interweb matchmaking site. VOILA! Up pops Adrian's photo and profile. She's looking pretty good and, BONUS! she's a medical doctor! Ted thinks, "here's my ticket back to Santa Royale, a doctor's income, and free health care! Haha I'm there" What a creep. (Probably killed his wife,too!)

Remember, "Happy memories tht will be expanded" comes from the same pen that wrote "Are the regionals an important event? Yes, except for another event they lead very closely to the U.S. nationals."
Do you know what is really scary? Moy has an editor.

Ted entered the restaurant in a checked jacket. I can only assume that, due to customer complaint, Ted was forced to change into one of those emergency jackets that all Santa Royale restaurants keep on hand for out-of-towners that are unaware of their 1950s dress code.

Lindsey said...

I hate Adrian right now more than Ted. What a freak.

Johnny C said...

Adrian grew up in Santa Royale, Ted spent a small part of his childhood in Santa Royale. There were never more than three children in Santa Royale. They must have crossed paths as children, maybe even "delighting in the insignificant", which is pretty much what I am doing with tis story line.

Adrian gets uglier by the minute. Is her oil of olay wearing off?

Anonymous said...

lol, wheelhead-- that photo does look like our Ted!!
I'm so bored with this plot and this couple I think I'd rather watch the grout dry on the floor tiles in Toby's kitchen!

One Santa Royale kid I remember from waaay back was bratty little Brint Prescott. Anybody remember him? He was a blonde boy as I recall.

OMG! Toby went and retiled that floor after all and we all missed it?!?

Mr. Beautiful said...

Yeah, you're absolutely right, and I have to ask, "What the hell?."

I see that Adrian's neckline of her top has changed.

Adrian appears to be taking her pearl necklace off and on. Maybe Ted slipped it off, decided they were fake and slipped it back on?
