"Is Mary available?" Only if you're a better catch than that pushover she's currently with.
I know, I know!!!Scott's returned to duty so he must be recovered enough to marry Adrien. And since Adrien has no mother (do we know what happened to make Dr Jeff a widower or do we just not want to go there?) to help her plan the wedding, she's asking Mary!!!You know we're in for months of pouting and obtuseness from Adrien (as well as a lawsuit or two for malpractice since Adrien isn't so hot a doctor) before the wedding in JUNE.I'm not 100% sure I'm right, but what else could it be?
Help a newbie out? Who is this new set of characters and what's their backstory? I'm guessing someone can tell me in three sentences what took Moy three months to unfold. And if you could point me to the right month/year in the archives that this particular storyline begins, I could read up. Since we'll be stuck here for a while, clearly. Thanks.
Punky, last year was practically the year of Adrian (that's Dr. Adrian Cory, the daughter of Mary's gentleman friend Dr. Jeff Cory).Adrian's story began on 2/9/09. She met a guy online and fell in love but he was playing her and scammed her out of a large sum of money. The con man got busted and in walked Scott, a detective who took Adrian's statement and offered her comfort. Scott and Adrian began dating, then Scott was shot when the police raided a warehouse full of heavily armed drug dealers. It was touch and go, but Scott pulled through.It's possible that this is just an interlude to announce that Adrian and Scott are getting married, like last year when Delilah called Mary to announce that she and Lawrence were going to have a baby. That was just a quick four or five day run in between the Adrian/Scott story and the beginning of the Wilbur/Kurt saga. I can dream, can't I?
I have a non-buzzy feeling.
Punky: Adrian is Jeff's daughter and a physician of sorts at Mountview Hospital. She fell for and became engaged to a polygamist conman named Confey who called her "Queenie" and took $50,000 for his "sister" in Florida before being arrested by Scott the detective who is also the son of Jeff's dead high school hero. Used tissues are replaced by ice cream cones and Scott asks Adrian to marry him. Adrian hesitates for fear of again rushing into love BUT THEN Scott is shot at the SanRoyMart Warehouse! Although the bullets missed all vital areas, Scott did not escape without a bandaid to the neck and an arm sling. He flirts with death for several days/weeks in Mountview's storeroom while Adrian waits in the cafeteria, regretting her hesitation to love the BEST THING that ever happened to her while she had the chance. Stereo Hi-Fi remains by Scott's side until his recovery.It is safe to assume that we would all rather peek in on the life of Stereo Hi-Fi.
Oh rats, I see Mary kept that awful mustard pumpkin sofa after all! (It must be the ONLY one she allows Jeff to sit on!) As you recall, the lovely Jenna was treated to tea on a somewhat pretty light green sofa. Ah well, I guess the rental place came and picked it up shortly thereafter. She prolly forgot to pay for it.
I am glad Adrian is back. We can only hope to see her once again clomping down the stairs of the man cabin, rushing to answer the door. So she and Scott arte getting married? Will Hospital Hi Fi be the maid of honor?
That would be Mary's pumpkin sofa which she brings out for the witching season.
Many thanks for the catchup. I did follow the Toby and Ian story two summers ago, and learned all about the horrors of buying something over the Internet. And now I see that the following year's strips were consumed with the horrors of MEETING someone over the Internet. (And didn't Wilbur and Kurt connect via... the Internet?) I'm surprised that Moy didn't figure out a way for the horrors of the Internet to spill over into the hope-someone-drove-a-stake-through-its-heart Bonnie-to-Lonnie storyline. Apparently the Internet is a terrible, terrible thing. Perhaps if Moy's feelings hadn't been so hurt by this blog, she'd have gone lighter on the unable-to-defend-itself Internet.
I'm to new to this.Yet I know enough to accept the fear that is crawling my way, should I decide to follow this further.Who knew I would finally live true Lovecraftian terror under the guise of Mary Worth?
I bet Det. Scott was on the who-killed-Ritchie case, thus matching his dimwit fiance in professional incompetence. Poor Lonnie was driven to drink and death because Scott is a moron. Everyone in this strip is dumb and yet there is one thing they can do... "learn" how to love. Professor Mary teaches the course. If you flunk, (which Jenna almost did!) she snips your head off.Sheesh
I'm no expert, but isn't Mary supposed to have two legs and the table four? I can't make sense of what's going on down there.
Yuck, from Jenna to Adrien...will this parade of unattractive women never end?
How did Dr. Jeff get Earnest Borgnine to bring him coffee?
