Mary Worth 585

I was reading comments made this morning before I had the chance to write this post, and while Adrian deals with this extremely surprising bit of news, I feel the need to explain to many of you who Dr. Brian Good is, since everybody thought it was some kind of pun about his qualifications as a doctor, which of course it isn't. Before Aldo Kelrast, and long before I started blogging, there was Anna Tieg. Anna connected on the Interwebs with her old high school boyfriend, Brian Good. Anna flushed every time she thought about this stud, but she knew he was married. It was good ol' Mary Worth who suggested that Anna start writing to Brian. Well, before you knew it, Brian revealed that he and his wife were getting a divorce. Whether Anna prompted his decision, I'm not sure. Soon, true love blossomed in very sickening ways, and he and Anna were married. They even made a recent appearance at a pool party with their spawn. So you decide whether you think Dr. Good is good or not. Right now, I'm thinking even he won't be good enough to save Scott Hewlett. Maybe Adrian will start sending emails to Dr. Good after Scott dies, and Dr. Good can get another divorce.

Is it even legal to tell Adrian about Det. Soontobedead? THey aren't related. Doesn't he have any family?

In the spirit of Sean Finnery, in which Karen Moy minorly changes the name of a well-known character, couldn't we have had a more imaginative Doctor's name?

Doctor Fildare? Doctor Farcus Melby? Doctor Shmoogie Shmouser?

Oh! Oh! A police call box appears in the hall and out steps ... Doctor Whom! Not to be confused with the steel-fisted ruler of Klatveria, Doctor Gloom...

Fine. I'll stop. It's just that you go through creativity withdrawal the more you read this strip, you need to compensate somehow...

How 'bout the temperamental Doctor Home?

So does 'vital organs were spared' mean "Don't worry you can still have children" or does it mean "He won't be a vegetable"? I don't thing the Dr. violated any HIPAA laws because there has been no real information given. lol.

Wanders! Charlie Brown! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Remember that old Lucy line:
"Is that you, Charlie Brown, or are you hiding behind a baloon?"

Carol: Scotts father, a very good man, has passed on. And no one else would claim Scott as family.

Chester (not Ctester) said...

What exactly are VITAL areas? I’d have to guess that all doctors consider the entire human body “vital”. And poor Adrian is going to dump HER patients just to visit Scott, who sounds like he is going to pull through, minus a lot of blood, though.

I saw somebody make a reference to "Santa Roymart" in the comments here the other day, and I assumed they were making a funny joke. I just looked at today's full strip, and all I can say is I can't believe it's actually called Santa Roymart. Unbelievable.

Brick said...

At this point, I might ask the doctor for a list of areas that WEREN'T spared...

Ugh! Adrian is best viewed at the end of a 10-foot. pole.

Robert said...

When referring to the most important vital areas spared by bullets, the doctor is clearly referring the Scott's blond helmet hair.

Panel 1: further evidence that maybe Mr. Giella didn't far quite so well in the "Drawing Human Hands Keeping Perspective in Mind" class. Either Mr. Bearer of So-so News has an arm that's eight feet long, or his right hand is severely--like elephantiasis severely--swollen.

HA! I was right about the Mountview Hospital blood supply!! Scott "lost a lot of blood", but unfortunately, the parking lot blood drive they threw together at the last minute didn't yeild enough pints to fill 'im back up! Sorry, Adrian, we did all we could...

Chester said...

It appears that Adrian has seen HOME ALONE a few too many times.

tuffenuf said...

Chester - THAT'S IT!!!

I couldn't think of where I had last seen that look. Good one!
