Mary Worth 1,031

Maybe if Liza would cook like a LUVR should, instead of letting Drew pick up the checks, they would still be a "couple" and going on a third date.

Speaking of food and Joe Giella, the Comics Alliance has some wonderful recipes from a Joe Giella project in the 1970's.

Translating the exchange between Jeff and Drew in today's first frame, for the benefit of those of us (Pittsburghers?) not conversant with the refined language at Charterstone:
"Hey, son! Jeet yet?"
"No, jew?"

heydave said...

So I go away for a few days and come back to a pile o' crazy LiZa which then segues to Mary's pot pies?

OK...

Mary said...

@Tony, if they were Pittsburghers, Jeff would say, "The pot pies need reheated," and Drew would offer to redd up the table.

- Mary (not a native Pittsburgher, but I've lived here for 10 years)

Tony said...

Mary -- Only ten years in the 'Burgh, and you already have the lingo down!

Chester the Dog said...

Does Mary know that the pot pies were taken? Now the real story begins.

Emmy said...

Um...how many chicken pot pies did Mary make if there were still some extras after dinner??

flea said...

the eerie shadow stalking Drew in the dimly lit interior of the house is Liza, who has the ability to transform herself into whatever she needs to in order to get what she wants.

Brick said...

I'm so relieved to see Drew with Brian Keith. Uncle Bill knew a thing or two about wealthy bachelor affairs, and his relationships always ended amicably.

Plus, he's so much better looking than Dr. Jeff.

His Way or Her Way said...

Mmm. . chicken pot pies. My favorite. Wonder if Mary has any more she can throw my way.

What is it with Mary Worth and pie? Peach pie...lemon meringue pie...chicken pot pie...is that why we hardly see her anymore; she's too busy baking?

Elaine said...

Wow - is there some law in the Worthiverse that says your wall color has to match your favorite suit? Can't get enough of that orange!

Vicki said...

@ Kathyo -- hmmm...I wonder if Mary has tried making salmon pies or shrimp scampi pies yet, since she's equally obsessed with seafood?

Well, here's the thing...Mary is the "right" type of woman to date and marry, because she cooks like a demon and even makes EXTRAS, just in case someone hasn't eaten yet!!!
Whereas...LiZa-LiSa-NASA is the "wrong" type b/c she is one of those MODERN-type women with a text machine, a killer apartment, (probably even an electronic reader!), and waaay too many independent thoughts. Even if she weren't craaazzzy she'd still be the "wrong" type for Drew!

Mary's ONLY flaw is... if she gets mad at you she gives you the silent treatment for weeks on end. Right now, though, that would sound pretty good to Drew! If only he could meet a gal like Mary!

Carlye said...

It's probably "pot pies" in plural because they're likely to be Swanson. Using frozen foods leaves Mary more meddlin' time, and besides, these bachelors won't know the difference!

tuffenuf said...

Chef Spidey (in the Superhero Cookbook) looks like he has just discovered Mary's recipe for Salmon Squares.

RCastell said...

It's Typhoid Mary!

phoebes in france said...

Are Dr Jeff and Dr Drew now being drawn by the Dick Tracy illustrator?
Because both have square jaws like Dick.

What'll you try next, Mary--Kelk pies?

And what's with all the ceiling-tile viewpoints lately? Did Giella shrink?

heydave said...

I think that an aging Clutch Cargo has now arrived on the scene to talk about peace villages and pot pies.

Chester the Dog said...

Hey Drew, if you are really hankering Marys cooking, check her freezer. She has enough leftover salmon squares to feed all of the Santa Royale drug cartel!

Imogene said...

Hmm...."pot pies" and "leftovers." Mary (obviously they're not talking about Mary WORTH) is a madam whose "delicatessen" Jeff and Drew both frequent. Why they're speaking in code in Jeff's own home is not apparent, but probably it's because they know LiZa's hiding somewhere on the premises.

James in North Dakota said...

Maybe if we say her name three times, Mary Worth will appear....I have a feeling that since Jeff has made an appearance, our Mary will soon make an appearance. Perhaps balancing some bonus pot pies on her arms? Anyway, let's hope she can come and make a diagnosis. After the weekend I spent reading this blog, I think I can safely say that this is the longest that we've been without Mary Worth?!

Elaine said...

Maybe Mary is in an alcohol rehab program, and Moy is trying to protect us from the ugly truth.

Dave in Parma said...

From the 5/26 Thursday strip, I can see Dr. Jeff responding, "well, let me tell you how I deal with the lady who thinks she's dating me....."

Another thought popped into my mind last night as I was running to get in from the hail: wouldn't it be cool if Lisa/Liza/Despisa was Jill's daughter? And yes, I know there's something wrong about a 41 year old guy thinking about the Mary Worth strip while running out of the rain. Deal with it.

Chester the Dog said...

Thursday: Drew is really digging into that pot pie. Note the little slice neatly cut from it.

Elaine said...

Looks like Drew changed into his orange eatin' shirt to dig into those pot pies! Good choice, matches the walls.

kathyo said...

@ Chester the Dog: Yeah, I noticed that Drew is eating an individual pot pie in little triangles. Quirky. Also, he's drinking Tang with dinner. Tang goes with Kelk!

trixietrudy said...

5/26, panel 2: What happened to our square-jawed, manly, handsome, blue/black-haired Drew? Alert the Santa Royale authorities! There's a shape-shifter in Jeff's apartment!

James in North Dakota said...

Dr. Drew is so gung-ho for Mary's bonus pot pies that he somehow dislocated his right arm. Either that, or there's a hand coming from beyond the grave (maybe one of LiZa's last beaus?) to help him with his jacket.
