Mary Worth 1,043

Driving full speed through the hospital entrance and running Liza over with your car really doesn't count as limiting contact, Drew.

You just gotta know that Drew is making Vroom, vrrroooom! noises while he drives.

jmernl said...

Ah yes, Mountview Hospital, where the handicapped must enter through the loading dock somewhere out in back.

Punky said...

Being a doctor in Vietnam must be very lucrative. By my count Drew has three cars: a red one, a blue one, and now this snazzy turquoise one.

You know, as bad as Moy's story line pacing is, it really could be worse.

Over at "Judge Parker", we've had the good Judge trying to talk suicidal Dr Emma St John down off the roof of a tall building for about three weeks now.

Of course, the art work's a lot better at "Parker". Women have curves, and I mean REAL curves, and the men don't all look like Ken dolls.

I've noticed yet another disturbing trend in the Worthiverse: a problem will drag on and on without the calming presence of Mary, demonstrating that the denizens of Santa Royale are really too dumb to deal with anything on their own. When they are just about to implode with frustration or explode with rage, Mary make a 2-minute appearance, gives some inane advise and, poof! problem solved!! This would not be so very worrisome, would certain characters not completely disappear from the face of the earth after Mary gave advise. We'll probably see Adrian again (perhaps in a year or four) since she has a strong connection thanks to her sandwich-devouring father, but I bet anyone in this group a quarter that, much like Jill, we'll never see Liza/Lisa again once her little "problem" is dealt with! And we can only assume that Bonnie?Bonnie Johnson? is happily roaming a shopping mall somewhere.

Nontheless, I am already itching with anticipation for the next nutty character and storyline!

Elaine said...

Drew must have earned some very special privileges at Mountview - he gets to drive in right through the front doors!

Gina said...

Cue the boiled bunny in the doctors' lounge. (Doctors have lounges, right?)

Maude Findlay said...

I predict that a tragedy will have to strike, before LiZa realizes that her persistent stalking of Drew is futile. Maybe another patient will nearly succumb to a fever or bedsore, because LiZa will be too busy doodling ''LiZa & Drew'' on her patient's chart, while humming ''Chapel of Love'' & simultaneously texting; ''Meet me 2nite, lvrboy!''

Hold it, I just had an idea of how Moy can improve this storyline! And it's very timely.

Can we throw her "crush" to Anthony Weiner? He loves to text the ladies...could we get something going?

Dave in Parma said...

He has one color car to match each color suit Punky. We should see orange tomorrow.

Robert said...

Boy, he seems to be speeding up as he attempts to make a drive-thru lane for the emergency room. And jmernl, I too noticed the lack of a handicap access. No hospital (at least any in the last few decades) has multiple steps to get inside. Giella must have excellent health and hasn't even visited a friend or relative in the hospital since 1974.

I'm in agreement that Drew may have mayhem in mind. He's started by flaunting the law and having his hands at the 1 & 11 o'clock positions on that huge steering wheel.

That may go over well in Nam, Buddy, but around the good ole USA,we do 10 & 2!!

Vicki said...

Wait, I thought Drew was just "putting in some hours" at Mountview Hosp. while he mostly read Men's Fitness mags and contemplated what to do next regarding his future.
Are there no other drop-in hospitals or clinics in Santa Royale...perhaps on the seedier side of town where Kurt Evans lives?
I mean sure, he might have to walk a block or two past a dark alley to the newstand/magazine vendor, but I doubt LiZa will think to look there!
C'mon Drew...Don't doubt Mary! Mary knows best!

trixietrudy said...

Drew can hide from LiZa by changing his hair color from blue/black to orange (the technique originated by Dr. Mike Roberts).

Dave in Parma said...

"Limit contact" is Mary's way of saying "go back to Vietnam and stop crashing at your Dad's place; you're crowding our style.'

Maude Findlay said...

I guess we're in for a few weeks strips of Drew looking alarmed, LiZa screaming ''Yoo hoo, Drew! Wait up!'' and Drew exiting stage left?

Punky said...

Maude, I fear you are right. Really, Drew is such a dolt. I keep thinking back to a few weeks ago when he's exiting stage left after another LiZa appearance and saying to himself "maybe I should avoid her...." (advice he didn't heed until Mary said it too). Ya think, Einstein? In today's strip he's almost robotic in his "Must. Go. Away." reaction. And what's with LiZa's pinching her fingers together? Is it "Look, Drew, I found the most fascinating piece of dust we could look at together..."? What else might it mean?

Anonymous said...

"Oh No. I'd better go." Maybe she won't notice I'm going. Maybe she'll just turn around and go the other way. Maybe I can put on my cloak of invisibility. Maybe...

Robert said...

Has Drew never seen an episode of "Three's Company" or any other sitcom which had this plot? You're supposed to pretend to like the girl, then show her what a rotten jerk you "really are" so she'll dump you on her own. Of course, LiZa's probably not that smart for this to work.

Maude Findlay said...

Perfect solution- Drew needs to ask out Jill Black! LiZa will see them together and get the hint- and we'd get to see Jill!

James in ND said...

Robert, I think even Mr. Furley's kerchief has more of a clue than LiZa.

I still say that he should leave some of his Men's Fitness magazines around and maybe -- a strong possibility -- that LiZa will get the clue.

(Dave in Parma...I laughed so loud at your posting that I received a warning from my supervisor.)

@james: funny but very disturbing--lol
