Mary Worth 864

And thus the die is cast: Jill Black, outspoken Type A personality, has already had the validity of her input negated by Mary Worth's passive aggression. As long as Adrian chooses Mary's favorite dress, everything should work out just fine. Jill Black doesn't stand a chance.

Is Adrian ready to gouge Mary's eyes out, or is she just trying to make shadow bunnies on the wall?

What's with the candlelight lunch?

Mary is holding her finger over the flame to illustrate her incredible mind power and control. I already feel very sorry for Jill...

Love the cameo appearance of dinner napkin in the first panel! I'm trying hard to concentrate on other things, as the constant finger pointing is really getting to me. Who has conversations like that?

Smiling eyes, right before she kills.

Meanwhile, the young lady in the background uses her fork to slay a looming zombie.

@Shmoopie: The constant finger pointing is Giella's way of illustrating dramatic content. One finger, mild drama. Two fingers, a real nailbiter. Five fingers, ooooh, I'm really angry now. Ten fingers, this is where I reach over, ignoring a burning candle, and throttle you!

Jill Black will show Adrian a frilly dress on line, one that makes her feel like a queen. She'll have Adrian pay a $50,000 down-payment on it.
Then, Adrian will discover that the dress is used and belongs to someone in Florida.
Mary will show her a new dress, a really white dress. It fits, it's beautiful, but Adrian hesitates.
Then, a corner of that dress is torn while on hold in the warehouse...

All I have to say is...these two goofballs had better leave a pretty darn BIG TIP!!
Restaurant personnel hate it when people come for lunch and stay all the way til supper, tying up their tables! I bet the server that came and lit their little candle gave them one NASTY look, lol!
And prolly Mary is just waiting for Dr. Jeff to drop by and pay the tab, since she never pays for anything and Adrian isn't working anymore.

How cute of Mary to pretend Adrian's opinion counts for anything, when Mary well knows its her own opinion that she'll force upon the clueless bride-to-be.

Is this going to be Santa Royale's version of "Say Yes to the Dress"? An episode in which a hopelessly naive (yet professional) small-town bride comes to the big city with her Type A friend and mirthfully meddlesome mother figure to do business with some New York sales vultures? Be still my heart!

I hope Type A Jill Black gives Mary a beat down.
