Mary Worth 929

For those of you who have planted your flags in the Drew/Jill romance camp, I think we can safely say that our new story is either about Jeff and Drew helping the clinic in Vietnam, or what happens when you eat an entire plate of salmon squares in a public setting.

Today's Full Strip

So, Jill is just ''gone''? No wrap-up, no happy ending? Are we to assume she gets herself a hoard of cats, a lifetime supply of cheap wine, and lives out her pathetic existence, forever alone? I need closure!

I reckon the clinic's problems are purely administrative. But who could help them?

Charlie said...

Mary's dress changed from red to black. I think someone is dying.

Elaine said...

Zzzzzzzzz..... wake me up when Jill crashes through the door!!

birdie said...

I'll bet his ideas on how to help the clinic involve using a broader range of antibiotics. Mary taught them that, but they've probably slid back into their old ways without her superior input.

what happens when you eat an entire plate of salmon squares in a public setting. Is it the same thing that happend if you eat a six pack of activia?

Jared said...

Jill's going to 'Nam.

@Anon 8:10AM. I think you are on the money.

Considering how cheap this wedding has been, I doubt those are salmon squares. They seem to have something inside them--my vote is for very, very tiny Wimpy burgers. What else could be so addictive that Mary would have a plate piled high? And it would be just like Adrian to have her wedding catered by White Castle.

And apropos, Jill, where are you???

Vicki said...

Mary's trying to act all cool with her "here we go" line. I think she picked that up from watching beer commercials on tv.

Anyway...maybe someone should go check on Jill. If she doesn't crash through that 'catering store' window soon, we're all going to fall asleep! This is the worst party ever.

How hopeless is it that my flag is still planted in the Drew/Vera romance camp?

viscosity said...

That's clearly a fortune cookie mary is eating - it only makes sense that Jill would have organised a reception at the Moon Palace, where the General Tso Chicken is to die for. On the plus side, perhaps we can get a discussion from drew about the cultural differences between vietnamese pho cuisine and americanised chinese.

Robert said...

This is a perfect opportunity for a guest appearance by Chin Napkin! Why hasn't he (or Jill) shown up yet to make this wedding more interesting?

I'd like to thank the man that's trying to cram a giant cracker in Mary's pie hole! I've had enough of her preachy advice, too!

"Here we go!" As if. This story isn't going anywhere.

@Maude Findlay
It wouldn't be the first time something, or someone, disappeared. I seem to remember $50,000 whose disappearance never was explained. Of course, it did belong to Adrian, who has probably forgotten by now that she's at her own wedding.

Oh, please, please, if there's any justice in the universe, could Ted Confey show up, and hook up with Jill?

I need closure! What was in the manila envelope for Adrian and Scott that was conspicuously displayed in Jill's car window as she headed ominously toward Storefront Catering? I think it's tickets for a honeymoon cruise down the Santa Royale River, which flows into the churning Pacific.

duckduckgoose said...

How many exotic places are there in the Worthisphere? I can only think of one: Vietnam

Joolz said...

Jill's manila envelope held blackmail photos; unfortunately, I don't think we'll ever see them. Lots of stuff happens off-strip in Santa Royale.

just wondering its said that drew dated the all purple wearing dawn weston ? i thought she was a teenager why else would she live with wilber?

Imogene said...

Um, Jeff...emails are not like telegrams. You can actually immediately respond to the email sender without a trip to Western Union and added expense. Perhaps the clinic would be doing better if you'd known that sooner.

When did Adrian have her lovable-featured gown shortened? Is this the Catering And Alterations While You Wait store?

I'm loving so many of the comments today, and also from yesterday (the Serbian wedding, the disgusted departure of Citizen Cane). I'm also loving the image of Mary in today's first panel, hanging out in the corner in front of a plant, hunkered down over a piled-high plate and shoveling in the chow. Stay classy, Mare.

Jeff is just showing that he's down with the kids and their technological gadgetry--he even knows how to read "e-mail" on a "computer-machine." Wait 'til Drew blows his mind by telling him you can dial long-distance direct.

Why, this envelope, it seems to be...ticking! These new Hallmark Cards do everything now.
