Mary Worth 1,026

Must be strong. Must resist the urge to see your name written on an Hombres ticket, Drew. It helps that the Hombres are in the bottom of the National League West this season. Of course, it is only May.

Drew , are you really that huge of a spineless idiot!

yes! Yes, you are!
And we love it!

I love Liza's smallish stethoscope.

For a second, I thought she had two tickets for "The Hombres" and that maybe they were going to do a reunion gig and perform their hit "Let it Out (Let it All Hang Out)" right there in Santa Royale!

Alas, it is the Hombres game. What is that, minor league hockey, roller derby, high school lacrosse?

I like the pair of legs behind Drew and Liza. They look as if they are doing the samba to the muzac being played over the sound system.

Punky said...

I'm really not respecting Drew's thought bubbles today. His resolve can waver so easily? Back in the real world, I'd be wondering how LiZa came across two Hombres tickets (one with Drew's name on it, even) for a Friday night when until recently she had reservations for them at Boondock Lake. Any pinhead would realize she'd just bought them, out of desperation to claw back her man. But Drew isn't just any pinhead. He's OUR pinhead.

Yesterday, Liza's nametag read "Lisa"..geez

tuffenuf said...

I think that an episode of "Dancing with the Stars" is being filmed in the background of panel 1.

I just love the backgrounds in these panels!

Elaine said...

@Antoinette - in the second panel, LiZa's name tag STILL says Lisa. Maybe she thinks if she changes her name, she'll bring back her spineless, pinheaded man.

I think I saw this whole thing on Seinfeld.

"George, drinking tea in his apartment with his girlfriend: "I-I've given this
a lot of thought. I'm sorry, but we, uh, we have to break up."
Maura: "No."
George, after hesitating: "What's that?"
Maura: "We're not breaking up."
George, after hesitating: "We're not?"
Maura: "No."
George, after hesitating even longer: "All right."

Jerry, with George at Monk's: "She said no?"
George: "She said no."

I, too, was wondering about the mysterious legs in the background. Maybe Dominique Strauss-Kahn was sprung from Rikers and now prowls the halls of Santa Royale hospitals?

Chester the Dog said...

Oh no, not a Hombres game! Must...resist...

James in ND said...

I know! LiZa and LiSa are actually two different people. Evil twins with one goal: to seduce the irresistible Dr. Drew. I dunno...it would explain for the odd continuity.

And I agree with tuffenuf: surely, 'Dancing With the Stars' is going on right behind them. Either that, or a pair of Siamese twins are on the prowl in Santa Royale.

Having had her promise of an evening of intimacy rejected, I can't think of a less effective way to entice Drew than with a pair of tickets to see a team noone's ever heard of. Now if they had been tickets to the Charlie Sheen show.....

kathyo said...

No wonder Drew really wanted to go. Hombres is the Spanish word for "men." It's probably the Men's Fitness Games or something. (I'll bet he goes anyway.)

Elaine said...

I'll bet Drew goes to the game with someone else, bumps into LiZa-LiSa and they get into a huge fight in front of an embarrassed and astonished crowd. Perhaps Dr. Jeff and Mary will be in attendance, and nosy their way into the melee.

Mary said...

I love the way Liza/Lisa is holding up two fingers to illustrate the number of tickets she has. Does Drew have trouble counting that high?

Vicki said...

Oh dear, now LiZa>Lisa is stuck with two tickets to the Hombres game! And those cost a pretty penny, too, esp. if they're on the 50 yard-court!
I bet that nice bald-headed lab tech would just LOVE to go to the game with LiZa>Lisa.

Syndi said...

Liza (stamping her foot): You SAID we could be FRIENDS!!!!

Anonymous said...

To recap: LiZa has a pair of hombres and Drew has none. It's difficult to show a girl that you just aren't into her. Especially if she's the one holding the hombres.

Tootz McGee said...

Does Lisa/Liza still perform with Cult Jam?

Flea said...

Yesterday, her name tag read "Lisa".
Today, the "s" is artfully covered up by the stethoscope listening tube. Whatever-her-name-is is about to remind Drew that she wants him, and that she ALWAYS gets what she want.

drew you dope go to the game say your getting a drink then go sit on other side of stadium or court or rink or bullfighting ring.

Dave in Parma said...

Yes Dr. Drew; so far so good. Liza has not had that little scientist sitting on the tiny chair on her clipboard attack you yet. Although looking at the expression on her face, that's coming tomorrow (or next month in non-Mary Worth time).

Ay Carumba! (sorry--trying to stay in the spirit of the "Hombres" theme).

Joolz said...

The Hombres must be a Padres farm team! If Drew's such a fan (or at least wants to attend Friday night's game), why the heck doesn't he buy himself a ticket?

Imogene said...

Advice for the legs-lady in the background: it's not a good idea to wear a short skirt when walking across such a highly polished floor!

Anonymous said...

Props to Drew for showing such willpower. Now he needs to duck and cover because LiZa looks like she's about to explode.

birdie said...

Do they ever do anything at that hospital but run around with clipboards? There must have been a sale on clpboards and toy stethoscopes at the local toy store.

To the legs in the background: Get a room!

@Elaine
Maybe she's displaying the peace sign, you know, for Peace Village, peace between us, truce...

Today, she is totally not getting it..Keep drilling it Drew

Punky said...

It just gets better and better! "EVEN THOUGH WE BROKE UP...." "DESPITE NOT BEING A COUPLE...." and then Lotta DeNile: "I'm OK because I know we'll get over it. LALALALALALALALALA I CAN'T HEAR YOU...." This really IS turning into that Seinfeld episode.

And what is that big shadow over Drew today? I think it's a looming figure of doom, as he realizes she's not lettin' go.

Anonymous said...

Ahhhh,yes, Punky, another conversation that noone in the world has ever, ever had. I still say that Moy doesn't speak english.

Shmoopie said...

Liza-Lisa may not pull an Aldo, but this storyline sure is going over a cliff.

Based on the "dialogue" that is going on, I can only assume that Moy lives in a sensory deprivation chamber somewhere, cut off from all contact with other life forms - and I mean ALL contact, including, TV, books, magazines, sock puppets, flying monkeys, you name it.

Gina said...

I can't wait for the wedding.

Drew: "I do, EVEN THOUGH WE'RE TOTALLY BROKEN UP!"

trixietrudy said...

Drew, don't you know? Resistance is futile...

Brick said...

Gina @ 3:43 ... (( :D ))

word verification: bobionsi - I read "bobbing fiance"

His Way or Her Way said...

I think this shows how some guys think. . .I'll break up with her but after I go see (fill in the blank). Too bad it was a fictional character that resisted it.
