Mary Worth 882

Let us not forget, Scott saved her! She saved her from Ted Confey, who Adrian mistook for someone likable. Now it is Mary's turn to save Adrian from someone else Adrian has mistaken as someone likable. Poor Adrian. Three years ago, she was performing brain surgery on herself and accidentally removed the section of brain that assesses whether or not someone is likable or not. Fortunately, there are plenty of people around who can save her.

Jill doesn't realize that by "marrying down" Adrian is keeping the gene pool alive and vibrant. If Jill had her way, that doctors would only marry other doctors (within their "professional circle"), soon the genetic damage from inbreeding would become evident.

"And Marry down" Jill you have uttered an under the breath insult not only to Adrain and her intended but also a gloating recognition that she has shut Mary Worth down. Oh the horror, the horror... the apocalypse is coming oh it is coming.

I'm speechless.

Yes, Wanders, Adrian really is a hopeless judge of character.

Maybe either Mary or Adrian should bring up the fact that Scott's father was an old friend of Dr Jeff's. NOT that he evidently bothered to keep up the friendship after he went to medical school and joined a "higher class"...

It's almost painful to watch. Moy dictates that Mary hang back on this one, but it's taking everything Giella has to restrain her.
She looks like my lab at feeding time.
Mary... down...

Has Jill Black come off the pages of a Jane Austen novel? Honestly, *someone* needs to speak with Adrian about marrying below her station! And Lady Worth does NOT look too impressed!

Jared said...

Much like the "bide" maneuver in Pokemon, Mary is pooling her energy to unleash an unprecedented attack that will leave Jill charred and, well, Black. The only question: when is it coming?

Ha ha ha ha!

Oh, oh. Mary's left eye is beginning to twitch.

Marry down? I thought Scotts father was a fine upstanding man...or was he a color printer...I forgot...

Does this mean that Black Jill will have to marry a hospital administrator? Would Jill mind if Adrian were marrying up? But then her intended would be marrying down. Jill's solution is that everyone marry within their social circle. So I am sure she approves of women being killed for relationships outside their caste as has been known to happen in India. It's only proper.

I'll always remember how tenderly Scott held that floral tissue box for a very distraught Adrian. He didn't even mind that she slimed his desk with them after blowing her nose! Guys like that are hard to find!

Hey Wanders, thanks for putting up panel two. I thought the cold sore on Mary's lip was a flaw in my newspaper.

Robert said...

Pat.P, that's so funny! I didn't even notice that. I was too transfixed by Adrian reaching out to Jill for some inappropriate face-touching. Or would it be appropriate, because they're at the same social level?

Anonymous said...

Which begs the question: Is a hospital administrator on the same social level as a reputed doctor?

Doesn't Jill understand that it's a miracle that Adrian found anyone to marry her?

OMG - my "verification" is "catiness"! Quite appropriate.

Mary has balled her hand into a fist of stone. ...And she waits.

The Radish King said...

One must wonder if Moy has had a bad experience with a hospital administrator at some point, to paint Jill with such a flattering brush.
Still counting down to the Mary- pocalypse, oh boy oh boy oh boy!

How unfortunate that St. Zita's Home for Friendless Women shut down. Adrian has no place to go.

Okay, I officially despise Jill. I have never wanted to viciously beat a comic character before today. I don't even like Adrian, Jill is just bugging the heck out of me. When is Mary going to stop glaring and finish her off already? I'm sure there's plenty of room in the ravine next to Aldo's body.
