Mary Worth 1,029

There are two main differences between how this scene actually appeared in 2007, and how Drew remembers it today: First, Drew is a lot more butch in his memory. Second, in Drew's memory, Vera is rushing to protect her horse by sticking her thumb up its nose.

It's tough being the kinda guy who goes around breaking hearts without even trying. (At least, so I'm told.) His only hope is that someday, long in the future, Liza will pick up the pieces of her shattered life and get over him.
Meanwhile, he should hop the next flight to Vietnam, before he meets another vulnerable woman.

...because, of course, there are no women in Vietnam.

Brick said...

guilty-schmilty- Drew's afraid of getting slapped again.

Tony said...

Re birdie's comment: I have wondered about that. Perhaps the women he meets there are less needy than Liza.

Not only does Drew imagine himself looking more butch but he imagines Dawn looking like a gargoyle.

I imagine Dawn looking like a gargoyle.

Not only is Drew a lot more butch in his memory, so is Dawn! She looks like she's about to rip his head off! Vera looks elderly, and the horse looks sickly. I wonder how LiZa will be remembered, a few years from now? I'm picturing a fatter, more butch version of B/BJ?, with a splash of Helen Martin.

Drew is so focused on Liza he doesn't notice that the plastic sheeting on his rear window is pulling away. He also has a nasty gash on his neck. Maybe he put his head through the window while beating it in frustration.

Yeah, Drew, you are a real chick magnet. That's why women can't let you go without a fight. Wait until you get home tonight and find LiZa waiting in your living room, gaily swinging the set of keys to your apartment she got at Home Depot. And a sledgehammer.

Elaine said...

There is something very odd about the rear window of Drew's car. Is it plastic sheeting, as Pat P. has mentioned, or something more ominous? Like, some kind of warp in the time-space continuum, causing Drew to begin reliving every painful memory of relationships, beginning with Dawn?

Toots McGee said...

Hey, how many cars does Drew have, anyway?

I don't know about you but I get all weak in the knees and get that buzzy feeling when I think of that heartbreaker Drew. I mean he's a Doctor and a humanitarian and he has Superman black and blue hair...I think I'm about to swoon.

Just tell her you read Men's Gentleman Fitness Quarterly Drew. She'll get the message. (not that there's anything wrong with that).

Dave in Parma reading the Sunday Mary Worth strip to his six year old (a.k.a. The Thin White Luke): "Looks like Drew is trying to dump Liza today."

Six year old Thin White Luke: "Again?"

Hint to Moy: when a six year old gets it, it may be time to move the plot along, although out of all the overly redundant point making plots, this has been one of the more entertaining.

Drew in Parma, you are a delight!!! lol. I was going to make a reference to Drew's penchant for reading Men's Fitness....or that LiZa would discover his secret stash and publicly out him at the hospital.

And the fact your 6-year-old son avidly listens to Mary Worth is precious too :)

birdie said...

You're right, Elaine. There's something seriously weird about that rear windshield.

Flea said...

Drew can't go back to Viet Nam. He had woman trouble there, too.

TG said...

OK, we get a repeat today of the zillion text messages LiZa sent a few weeks ago. It is time to speed this up and establish her as an all-out psycho, or just have her come to the conclusion that being forceful isn't the way to go with Dr. Drew and they'll wind up being friends. Or he moves back to Hanoi.

This storyline, like all the others, is beginning to drag.

Dave in Parma said...

@Anonymous: he doesn;t just listen, he has a MW "You look like you could use some advice" t-shirt that my wife desparately tries to to steer him away from on school dress down days.

Why is the horse on the right in black and white while the rest is in color? Is it some sort of Technicolor thing? Maybe it is from one of those velvet paint by number horse posters that were popular in the 80's.
