I hereby nominate "Upside-down Pigeon" for outstanding performance by a non-human, in the next Worthy awards.Bravo! Upside-down Pigeon!
That girl DOES hover like a mother-hover, doesn't she?But how terribly timely of Mary's insertion/intrusion into doc's life. In spite of his (presumed) years of training in probing the human psyche, the Doc just never could note that his father's desertion might, well, cause desertion problems in his life. And, having never grappled with such thought, now finds new freedom in 19th century stage craft, artfully gesturing out his angst to the silent film audience that must be watching.
The pigeon is Mike's father.
what are those diagonal lines supposed to represent? the wind? spider webs? gunfire?
Little white pigeon. My only friend. YOU won't desert me like my father, will you... HEY! Sigh. Hmmm. Wonder how I'd look with brown hair.
Thankfully, psychologists cannot prescibe drugs.
That pigeon was trying so hard to be there for Dr. Mike, but he ignored him! Dr. Mike doesn't need love in his life! Fly away, bird!
If only Jenna could see this simpering wimp on the sofa, then maybe she wouldn't feel so lovesick. Seriously, who would be that hung up on this loser, after ONE date? Jenna's not a bad looking woman- in fact, ditch the ponytail, stop wearing bathrobes out in the street, and she'd be quite a catch. Jenna needs to ditch this zero, and get herself a hero!
I dunno, maybe Dr. Mike shoulda' met his dad in a bar someplace? He could take his little pigeon friend there to perform tricks, as an icebreaker. Maybe even pick up a little cash.
What in heaven's name is in Dr. Mike's mouth? A mouth guard? Ill-fitting dentures? Did Jenna check his teeth? He looks -- odd.
Dr. Mikes dad was right to dump Mike and his mother. The Dr. is a real wierdo, hanging out with pigeons during a gang gunfight in the park.I kinda think Jenna is better off alone, with her bottle of 2 buck chuck and her hair scrunchie.
Isn't that the bench that Ted Confey sat on while explaining to Adrian just how much he loved his sister? And isn't it the bench that Mary sat on while explaining to Toby just how broken her childhood home was?Word to Dr. Mike: If you ever try to patch things up with love, don't arrange to find it at the Charterstone Bench of Despair.
Really, Dr. Mike, just wash that jacket already - it's a black, smudgie mess.
This story is just insane. Will Mary bill Dr. Mike for her time? Or are the little whiffs of life-force she's stealing from his essence while she distracts him with this faux therapy session be enough?
Mary is awfully pushy in Friday's strip, urging Dr. Mike to continue trying to meet with his father/pigeon, even if he stands up Dr. Mike each time. Apparently she hasn't read the entire manual on being an amateur psychologist.
Yes, because being rejected or let down by his loser father just ONE MORE TIME will be the ticket to Mike's happiness. I guess Mary doesn't seem to realize that sometimes, certain people can't or won't be changed, no matter what.
