Mary Worth 1,010

I'd pretty much say there's reason for concern inside EVERY patient's room at Mountview Hospital.

Christopher Walken's thought bubble: "Sure would be nice if my father's doctor and nurse were actually here taking care of him, rather than texting each other giddily in anticipation of their next makeout session."

Mary said...

I so want a mug that reads, "I (heart) untview osptial."

Elaine said...

I see where this is going - the patient is going to die while LiZa and Drew are holed up in the linen closet, the hospital will get sued, Drew will scuttle off to Vietnam before anyone can figure out he's to blame, and Jeff will fall into an alcoholic stupor, possibly with wedding planner Jill as they've both lost their jobs. Nice work, Moy!!

I agree. There IS a reason for concern.

I would be very concerned if I saw a patient with a double IV drip into the nostril!

Mountview's accreditation should be yanked... and FAST!

Tony said...

I think we finally see the point of Moy's recent preoccupation with these new-fangled e-devices. It wasn't such a big deal when Dawn nearly destroyed her relationship with Wilbur, but now we'll see the REAL danger of these devices: Liza's neglect of a patient about whom there is reason for concern while she and Drew happily text each other. And who has remained above the e-device craze? Time for some intervention.

There's nothing to add here as the first five posters have pretty well set up the ensuing plot line. I particularly liked Elaine@8.57a.

My word is "gistat". Like "get here - STAT"

As Hospital Hi Fi looks on...

Is that Hospital Hi Fi? I thought it might be Hospital Jukebox.

I think there may reason for concern outside the patient's room too.

Elaine said...

There's a lot of reason for concern in the hospital cafeteria, too. What the heck is that odd food formation on LiZa's plate? It looks like it's trying to slink away. And - no fork?

trixietrudy said...

Who says that Christopher Walken is the patient's son? What if he's a hired killer, ready to rip out the double IV drip/oxygen tubes and collect his one million smackers?

Dave in Parma said...

What a fabulous tie in after the MW/Dr.Jeff/Wilbur/Dawn technology fiasco/plot that dominated Q1 2011---- Liza ignoring her flatlining patient as she text's Dr. Drew: "I have a fever, and the only prescription is more cowbell."

(sorry in advance for the obscure SNL/Christopher Walken reference).

Chester the Dog said...

I love love love the fact that Lizzzza is happily texting away in the cafeteria, while her only patient gasps for life. Who could she be texting so happily...DREW?

I also like the coffee mug, which, I am sure,are NOT sold in the gift shop.

Carlye said...

That guy was going to die, anyway, with or without Liza. And doesn't she get a coffee break now and again? This could be why I don't work in a hospital...

Karen with a K said...

Really? We're really going down the "social networking and computers are evil" path again?

Maude Findlay said...

There you have it- Texting KILLS. In Mary Worth, any technology that came to be after 1970 is to be viewed with the same suspicion as widows that caused cows to stop giving milk did, in 1692.

James in ND said...

Liza isn't texting! She's using her Kind -- er, her electronic reading device!

Graham said...

I keep hoping that the Winchester Brothers will appear
and save the viewing audience from DrewZiLa.

I was thinking of the Christopher Walken who was Annie Hall's brother who drove Annie and Woody to the airport. Here CW is probably the ambulance driver.

Since when does a buzzy feeling get in the way of medical professionals doing their jobs? I'm shocked!!!! And I had such respect for Dr. Drew and sacrifices made in Peace Village. I sure hope their medical malpractice insurance is paid up.

Maude Findlay said...

If LiZa is reading something on her e-reading device, it should be ''He's Just Not That Into You''. She'll learn. Dawn & Vera did.

Vicki said...

"there is concern" b/c that cheeky hospital hi-fi is texting LiZa about the funny-looking visitor in Room 215B! "U got2 C vistr--omg, looks lk a mnky!!"

Dear Hospital Administrator-type Jill,

Please pull yourself out of your druken stupor long enough to fire that over-sexed, lazy-a** nurse. She tried to drown me by putting an IV up my nose. Thank you very much.

Sincerly yours,
Concerned Patient

Meanwhile...I'm driving friends and family nuts by saying, "Meanwhile" like some kind of super-hero narrator. "MEAN-While...."
