Mary Worth 907

The name's Jill, Dr. Corey, and I'm an administrator at the hospital. Where you work. But you've never noticed me. Not once. After all the times I've stood up for you and your daughter (hic), you've continued to ignore me. But by Grabthar's hammer, you're going to notice me tonight!

Today's Full Strip

Yikes! I can see this going over REALLY, REALLY well........ :S

phoebes in santa fe said...

So that's what the little digression in the "story" about dancing was all about...

And, Wanders, Jill's going to have a lot to live down at the office on Monday.

OMG, poor Jeff! Jill is going to break both his knees! See, we all thought this was going to be some dumb story about poor single Jill being jealous of Adrian getting married- when actually, her target was Jeff, all along! Yes, she's going to force him to do the Macarena till his poor, withered knees snap like pretzel sticks!

Tony said...

I can't wait for the point in the wedding ceremony when it is asked, "If anyone can show just cause why this couple should not be joined in matrimony....." I bet Jill can't wait for it, either.

Tommy said...

I'm not entirely sure that vino is all Jill has been drinking.

Aunt Helen said...

NO JILL! Not Doctor Corey. Doctor Corey is MARY'S practice partner and another thing, he has BAD KNEES!!

Settle down, straighten your pearls, go to the ladies' room and wipe that mark of drunkenness off of your forehead, girl, before things get any worse. You don't want to appear in tomorrow's wedding as a JOKE.

Elaine said...

What the heck is that shiny spot on Jill's forehead?? Has she already taken a spill in her drunken, euphoric state?

Oh, the fun we're about to have!!

Syndi said...

Jill is going to ruin the wedding! OMG if Dr. Jeff is too lame to dance with Adrian, what will we all do?

Toots McGee said...

SWEET FANCY MOSES!

kathyo said...

Scott's going to step in again and break it up--wanna bet? Then he can arrest Jill for being drunk in public.

Jill is the most interesting character since Aldo.

Steve_J_23 said...

Ohhh please please please please... an INTERVENTION!!! . An Aldo Kelrast moment would be SUCH fun now!!!

Chester the Dog said...

I love this. Jill is going to be the talk of the hospital tomorrow morning.

OH EM GEEEEEEEEE!!!!! Jeff is going to be in a dance-attack-induced coma for the wedding!!!!!!!! Who's going to give Adrian away???? : (

Elaine said...

Perhaps Mary's evil plan is about to come to fruition...the pieces are all falling into place. With Jeff out of the way, and Jill in bed with a hangover, Mary can take over the entire wedding - both give the bride away AND serve as matron of honor... Now, about that minister...

Maude Findlay said...

Why is Citizen Cane nowhere in sight? I can't wait for tomorrow's strip. I picture a panel of Jill manhandling Jeff, Mary looking towards them, with a big ''!'' balloon over her head, next panel showing Jill brutally spinning Jeff around, when suddenly- KKKKRRRRAAAACCCKKK!

''Argh, my knees! Noooooo!''

Jared said...

Dance battle? Drunken brawl? Food fight? Cat fight?

Any of the above will be acceptable.

Dave in Parma said...

Inquiring minds want to know:

Does Jill get her forehead tatoos from the same place as Mike Tyson?

Has Jeff been canonized a saint (based on the radiant glow around his head in frame two) for dating Mary and at least twice (by my recollection) being spurned in proposing (or at least alludign to) marriage?

Do people really dance at rehearsal dinners? Maybe I'm just in a dull family.

Is Jill really Aldo's ex-wife?

Shmoopie said...

Just wanted to say that I can't stop laughing at today's comments, and I keep hearing KKKKRRRRAAAACCCKKK! sounds in my head. What a hoot!

I too have been pining for an Aldo Kelrast moment, and I think we're heading in that direction. I'm afraid though that this fracas is happening at the rehearsal dinner, so that the wedding will be as bland as one could hope for. But the next day (circa February 2011), Mary will push up her sleeves, crack her knuckles and get to work on Jill. We'll have to get to the bottom of her behavior. She must be meddled into submission - or at least SR-grade blandness!

Vicki said...

Awwwriiight!! Adrian wanted everyone to have a wonderful time at her rehearsal dinner--I believe she even used the word "revel". Well, BY GOLLY, Jill is doing just that, so Adrian should be ecstatic! (Now JEFF, on the other hand.... teehee.)

Mary's been so "off" her meddle game lately. If THIS doesn't spur her into action nothing will!!! However, she may be too busy getting her forehead tattooed, she isn't aware of the goings-on.

M. Willard said...

Nice shout out to Galaxy Quest. It looks like Jill is going to be the life & death of the party.

Nathan said...

Before he can do more than exclaim in shock, Jill the Giantess has grabbed Jeff and pulled him into the black Void between the purple curtains, the Outer Darkness wherein there is wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Jill will then be revealed (as befits a sarcastic person who mocks Mary Worth and its characters) as Beelzebub the Prince of Demons, the father of all Mockers. Mary Worth will then travel through the Seven Levels of Hell, battling Jill's horde's of Internet Haters (including Wanders, Josh from comicscurmudgeon, and all of us commentators) and eventually defeat Jill herself in an epic no-holds-barred battle of smug sanctimoniousness, rescuing Jeff. Having rescued Jeff from the Pit of Despair, Mary Worth will then discover her true love for him, and agree to marry him.

Unfortunately, just prior to the ceremony, Jeff will fall and break his knees, whereupon Mary will then marry Ron Amalfi instead.

Oh, this story is looking UP!

Ahhh, I figured who Jill is. She's the secret love child of Aldo Kerast and Helen *hic* Martin.

duckdg said...

I've never seen dancing at a rehearsal dinner either, Dave (@1:36), but I also don't think anyone is dancing, which makes this so much more a brouhaha...ha ha.

Joolz said...

Jill's forehead spot is the precursor to a twirling ring of stars above her head -- watch for it tomorrow!

Imogene said...

Maybe Jill took Dr. Jeff's putting his hand on her bottom as he asked if she is Adrian's friend (there could only be one of those, right?) as his own invitation to dance, which she accepted with extreme enthusiasm. And then, because dancing is not normally part of a rehearsal dinner, Jill had to start humming the music, leading to those large white notes spilling out of her.

If this is just the rehearsal, I can't wait for the real thing!

Amanda Kate said...

Today is the most awesome Mary Worth strip ever. Hopefully tomorrow will be just as amazing when Jill shows up at the wedding hung over and throws up on Adrian's boring, uninspired wedding dress. :-)

Robert said...

I'm guessing the panel of Jill grabbing Jeff's hand is going to end up a nominee as "panel of the year"? I hope so!

Does this rehearsal party have a D.J. or an orchestra? I hope Jill hops on the bandstand and shares her song stylings on "I Wish I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate"!

Anonymous said...

Why are you all getting so upset? Mama-bear Mary isn't going to let anything bad happen to Jeff.

I suspect Jill has what professionals refer to as a "drinking problem." Mary will have her in rehab before the chorus of whatever song that Guy Lombardo and his Santa Royalians are playing.

Jill exits stage right to be remembered by all as yet another example of Mary's sanctimonious good works.

Anonymous said...

So this is why Mary hasn't unhinged her jaws and swallowed Jill whole; she knew Jill would eventually self-destruct, and then she could move in with the ineffectual platitudes and look like a rose.

I guess an unnaturally long life really lets you get to know how people tick.

Elaine said...

Ah - but who could Mary possibly match up with Jill?? This story line is just ripe with possibilities!!!
