I honestly have to say that I was suprised by this turn of events.

I wonder what Drew has in the briefcase. Maybe he has some helpful pamphlets for his patient, er I mean Liza, like "How Do I Know that I've Been Dumped" and "Moving on After A Break Up: Bypassing the Denial Stage". These kinds of onformational tools are an integral part of the doctor-patient (or whatever!) relationship.

Toots McGee said...

I think I meant information.

Oh, by the way, could someone take a minute to check on that patient in 224C? I think his hose has become disconnected from the thing again. Whenever you get a chance, 'kay?

heydave said...

I feel like those people: surrendering to the dumbosity of this "story" or whatever it is.

Gina said...

My first thought was "engagement party" too, but then I don't know what the candles on the cake signify. The number of days they've been going out? The number of bullets Liza will put into him if he doesn't go along with this?

Mary said...

Why three candles? In honor of their three dates? Or maybe this is the third time Drew has tried to break up with Liza.

Who are all these other people, and how did Liza get them to show up for the Three Party?

Actually, having all those other people there is an old PR trick. If you're the head of something, and you're being interviewed about a topic that could land you in trouble, or you think your underlings might jabber to the press, you invite EVERYONE to sit in on the interview. You pretend you're being helpful to the reporter by offering up so many sources, but actually you're keeping a lid on things.

Oh, sorry, drifted into reality for a moment there. Now back to our story.

You want Conference Room 3 you say? Most people walk right by it, so we put a sign on the door and a big arrow on the wall. Think you can find it?

mrvy said...

Who are the guests? I really like the guy in the beige shirt and black tie who looks like he's about to take flight. He's not Liza's ignored patient, is he? Chinbeard with the glasses just looks grumpy. Then there's Pink Scrubs, sporting the finest look in cheerleader nursing garb.

What caught my attention was Drew scheduling their meeting in conference room three to meet with the "patient". Next time he might be better off meeting her at Starbucks.

jmernl said...

it looks like they are doing the "wave" in honor of drew. greybeard looks grumpy because he hasn'thad the chance to fling up his arms yet

Elaine said...

Well, why should Drew worry about scheduling a personal meeting in a hospital conference room during work hours? No one at that place worries about their schedules, anyway.

Looks like someone is giving Drew a bag of money, down there by chinbeard. Probably to help pay for his escape...

birdie said...

I love how all the girls are on one side of the table and the boys are on the other. So will Drew join the girls or the boys?

birdie said...

Also, with all those pink and blue balloons, I'm wondering if LiZa threw a party to celebrate an announcement.

Elaine said...

@birdie - the boxes are all turquoise too - looks like the crowd went shopping at Tiffany's! Woohoo, Drew, this is a fine engagement party, go with the flow!

Maude Findlay said...

One thing about LiZa, she's a fun-loving gal! She's always got great plans for dates, evenings out, weekend trips, sporting events, and now a surprise party. Maybe Drew should reconsider his feelings about her...

OK, she did kind of neglect a patient that had a mysterious fever, and had to be hooked up to a radiator for a bit, but in the end, everything worked out. Isn't Drew kind of neglecting his patients back in Peace Village, right now? Cut a gal a break, Drew!

I'm picking out a lovely orange & purple caftan for the upcoming wedding. I hope Jill Black is invited. I want to sit next to her at the reception.

Graham said...

"Rosemary's Baby "
was the first thing that sprang to mind on seeing todays strip.

Chester the Dog said...

What sane person has a party, any type of party, at 9 AM?

Dave in Parma said...

While this is the best MW story ever, three things jumped out at me:

1) the guy on the left who looks like he's about to go cake diving. i don't know anyone at an office paqrty who gets that excited.
2) the cake is bigger than Dr. Drew's head. they must be expecting a big crowd.
3) was Dr. Drew beatified for putting up with Liza? I remember seeing some glowing orbs around the heads of some pictures of saints at church on Sunday that looked similar.

That grumpy dude with the beard has made my day. Who brought the gifts?

Anonymous said...

I can see it now when she is presented with the inevitable restraining order. "It's OK Lover, what time do you want to meet for dinner? And don't forget, I've fot tickets to the game."

Joolz said...

Oh, I hope we see what the presents are! One of the Tiffany's boxes must contain an invisible tie clip of the type that Mr. Armfling is wearing. And what strange elixir is in the bottle Beardgrump is so carefully guarding?

birdie said...

Joolz, that bottle is Beardgrump's IV fluid. He isn't here for the party. He's a patient looking for a little bit of medical attention.

Maybe he'll have to explain his situation in detail in words that Drew can understand. Probably he'll have to bring in outside help before anyone is able to accept the truth that this is a hospital, not a dating service.

Vicki said...

oh ya, if you went around my workplace at 9 a.m. offering "free cake" you could EASILY draw a crowd and call it a "party"! Can't wait to see what's in the turquoise Tiffany boxes!!

Steve_J_23 said...

The guy in the beige shirt reminds me of Johnny from "Flying High". "That dress -- and those shoes -- ACK!!!"

djangosmom said...

Wow, Drew is going to have to fake his own death or suddenly be called away to 'Nam to get out of this one.
