I think the "capisce" was implied.
Chinatown"Next time you lose the whole thing. Cut it off and feed it to my goldfish. Understand? Understand!?"
...otherwise there's a cliff with Liza's name on it. Mary has just made her an offer she cannot refuse.
Way to go, Mary! First you tell Liza to get another job, now, as the poor girl is trying to hold her collapsing face together, you tell her to forget about Drew. But it's all for her own good, I'm sure.I predict Mary's next advice to Liza will be to get her sorry keister out of town. (Having coffee in a railroad car-type establishment was world-class foreshadowing!) This would also be one smooth way to get rid of a tiresome character! Not exactly Aldo-worthy, but quite effective all the same. Plus, in a few years the world-famous neurosurgeon/astrophysicist/investment banker Dr. Liza Colby could make a guest appearance in Santa Royale. Or show up penniless and drunk at a Charterstone pool party. Either one would be awesome!
Hold it! That's it? Mary talks to Liza and Liza actually understands?We've had an endless storyline of Dr Drew saying and Liza not understanding (or even acknowledging she heard what he said) and now Mary ends it in one or two days?What a let-down.
I'm still holding out for LiZa just pretending to be in agreement, all the while planning Drew's and hers 'We've Gone on Two Dates' anniversary party.
"Real love has to work both ways." As oppoosed to what other kind of love? And if Liza knows what's good for her, she'll listen to Mary. Moy certainly has to be up for some kind of comedy writing award.
Yesterday, Liza seemed to be coming around, but today she's falling apart again (which Mary seems to be enjoying). Hasn't she had enough yet? Time for Liza's REVENGE!!
@phoebes -- Seriously. I thought Mary would have to use semaphore flags, at the very least.ETA: My word verification: "sadli." How appropriate, considering that Liza is sadli clutching her face. :-)
"You are not in love with Drew.""He does not view you as a romantic partner.""You suck at your job.""These are not the Droids you are looking for."
It's now perfectly clear to me: Mary is a Jedi.Now we know what Yoda meant when he told Luke: "there is another." Mary.
After being sidelined in other recent stories, at least Mary has finally resumed her rightful place as Giver of Perfect Advice. All is well in Santa Royale.
Well, I am sure that another patient of Liza's has died while she is across the street playing musical chairs with Mary.
I have to say I'm disappointed in this. After how many weeks (months?) of Nasa's appearing from nowhere to tell Drew what their plans are for the weekend, and text after text after text, just a few words from Mary are enough to convince Nasa not only to give up nursing, but Drew as well?What about another shoot-out at Santa Royale Mart? What about the Aldo Kelrast Memorial Cliff? What about having both Drew and Scott wearing orange suits in the same panel? What about having Nasa crash the next pool party after poisoning the salmon squares and tiling Mary's lifeless body under a new kitchen floor?Sigh. The possibilities were endless.
You can choose ti die now, LiZa, or you can listen to me at length... and wish to die.
So much face and chin touching, in Tuesday's strip! Here's my theory: it's actually a secret sign language. Kind of like subtitles in the movies. But only they understand. Secret messages like "Leave me alone, you meddlesome old witch!" "Go ahead, just try to escape, you pathetic and sorry excuse for a nurse...." Or perhaps it's "Mary, what a lovely shade for a blouse." "Thanks, dear, are those new earrings?"And grrr (in a friendly way) to Gina - your verification word has had me singing Cat Stevens' "Sad Lisa" all night long ("tell me what's making you sadli...") and I even found myself saying Leeza instead of Lisa. So; thanks.
If I smooosh my face in, maybe this bad dream will all go away.
So now it's over and Liza is like, "ok, bye"???I was expecting some real life unrequited love stalking action. What a bore.
Glurg...If only... cough, wheeze...someone would... hack, gasp... check my temperature... Blurghhhhhhhh...
Why is LiZa pointing at her nose? Is she trying to tell Mary subtly that she has a 'lil hanging out?
(re: Tuesday): no Liza you're not pathetic for loving someone who doesn't love you back. No more so than Dr. Jeff Cory is at least.....
@Dave in Parma: GOOD one, I literally lol at that!Ok, so I'm trying really hard here to THINK what LiZa's true passion might be. Anyone have an idea? Possibilities: collecting paperclips, playing the lottery, flying kites, drawing tattoos that say "I hate nursing",...what else???
@Vicki: Maybe Liza's mortgage statement will provide some inspiration.
Am I the only one that laughed out loud after seeing LiZa ask Mary if she thought she was pathetic. Mary Worth readers around the world probably ROTFLMAO! I'd like to see a twist where Mary takes LiZa under her wing...I mean, Mary Worth is what, 140 years old? She won't be around forever. LiZa could be perfect to fill her shoes. She obviously can't take no for an answer, she's pretty good at usurping people's lives...she's a shoo-in. I just hope she likes salmon squares.
@Vicki: perhaps she could join the professional texting circuit.
I think that Liza's forte is event planning. She wasted no time planning a birthday party for Drew... right, Dave in Parma, she should go into Telecommunications.
I want to know what they did about Dr. Bailey's invite. It's just not nice to RSVP "yes, we'll attend" and then blow it off!
Tuesday - Panel one depicts the world's oddest nose-pick.
You know Mary has a cement truck parked out back, ready to fit LiZa with some "shoes" in case she doesn't comply with Mary's veiled threat."LiZa dear, I don't give a flip about jail. That's my business. That's what I do." (Modified from the original line from Casino so that it's family-friendly.) :)
Hats off to Kathyo, who was two days ahead of Mary Worth in saying that LiZa would be perfect in sales. Perhaps selling extended warranties at Best Buy is LiZa's true passion and calling.
