Mary Worth 1,032

In fact, as their doctor, I want them to know as much information as possible about their disease because then they can tell me all about it. I certainly won't know much.

Jeff is about to clap his massive monster hands and crush Drew's pin head. Not a moment too soon, I say.

Karen with a K said...

Oh boy, Drew is just dumb enough to start explaining to LiZa in great detail why he broke up with her. She in turn will naturally continue the crazy. Hilarity will ensue!

heydave said...

Yes, rational talk is just what's needed! LiZa will listen! Of course she will!

Mary said...

Or Drew calmly explains why he finds Liza's behavior unattractive. Then she goes into some drawn-out flashback about why she behaves that way. Then she sees the light and ... oh, dear, I can't bring myself to write the rest.

I just don't know what all the fuss is about. I mean, we're talking about a woman who won't take no for an answer. What's unusual about that?

James in North Dakota said...

Please, let's see some resolve. I don't think I can take another month of:

"LiZa, you just don't get it. We're not together."

"Oh, don't worry, lover. We can't be together all the time and our schedules may not gel, but we can still find ways to be together. So, dinner at 9?"

I'll be banging my head against the wall so much that the neighbors are going to call the condiminium board!

Amanda Kate said...

Uh...that doesn't really apply if they're in DENIAL, Jeff!
Also, I agree with James. Things need to step up with this stalking. If there aren't dead animals and threatening notes in Jeff's locker by next week, I'll be very disappointed.

Maude Findlay said...

Isn't Drew supposed to be a 30-something world-traveled physician? Why does he have to ask his father how to break up with a girlfriend? Most guys learn that, before they learn how to drive!

Vicki N. DeNile said...

The look on Drew's face looks like he's thinking, "you senile old man, you think I'm talking about some patient in denial with a medical illness. DUH!"
So, with dad blabbering on and on, Drew thinks, "hmmm....I need some dessert. Maybe I'll go talk to Mary." And of course, she'll say, "let me tell you a story..."

Does anyone know why Dr Jeff changed from a v-neck sweater, with his shirt collar over the sweater, in the first panel to a turtleneck with no shirt collar in the second? (The quick-change skills of the Worthiverse are amazing!)

Dave in Parma said...

Yes, give her lots of reasons so she has opportunity to counter those and turn them into opportunities. That sounds like a great idea.

By the way, whose place are they at eating these pot pies--Jeff's Drew's, Mary's?

djangosmom said...

Wait til Dr. Jeff finds out that the 'illness' is someone being in love with Drew.

also, Dave in Parma, all of the grown kids in the Worthiverse live with their parents.

"LiZa, you are enmeshed after only 2 dates, you get your wants and needs confused, you're bossy, you don't seem to understand moderation or my passion for Peace Village, you quoted Tom Cruz... right after we kissed, and your self-esteem is drawn entirely from your relationship with me, which is over... fini... terminar. Oh, and you text way too much.

I hope this information helps.

And stop calling me lover."

duckduckgoose said...

Wow... writing that was really cathartic

for some

strange

reason.

Graham said...

Once she tastes a Mary Worth chicken pot pie ,
LiZa will realize that this is the only way to get Drew.
She will then stalk Mary for her culinary secrets.

Gina said...

Drew, is there *anyone* in your life who actually listens to what you're saying?

Anonymous said...

So when is Dr. Drew going to tell daddy-O that he's talking about his crazy-stalker girlfriend, not a patient.

This whole thing is beyond stupid.

Imogene said...

djangosmom, not ALL the grown kids in Worthiverse live with their actual parents: Toby Cameron, for example, lives with her grandfatherly husband. Maybe she's an orphan...

There are so many bad things in this panel, besides the stupid story many people have so brilliantly mentioned. Jeff's grammar is atrocious, Drew's hair has reversed course and is now combed back to front (is he going for the Trump look?). And I can no longer think of chicken pot pie as a delicious dinner option.

James in North Dakota said...

Please please please ... Dr. Drew. Mind your manners and go thank Mary for the bonus pot pies.

Then, sink into her couch or whatever furniture she has (I can't even remember!), sigh loud enough for Mary to hear so she can ask what's wrong.

And Vicki -- I'm going to vote 'no' for the "Let me tell you a story." That in itself would take about two weeks before she finally gets to the story, thus lengthening this painful storyline.
