Why is Waitress "confiding" behind her hand, from four feet away? And speaking of hands, Mary's manhands are back, in the second panel!WV: dissin, which is what we spend our time doing here.
Evil ginger waitress!And she's not even doing a convincing face touch. Off with her head!WV: exactu... exactuly!
Bless Mary's heart, being outwardly supportive and all. She's thinking "Good for her... but not even a stinkin' goodbye???"
Mary: Now that I am able to get some decent service here, I'll take a piece of that ENORMOUS pie.
Excellent! More telling, not showing! Though I really don't want to be shown Gina and Bobby anymore. Good luck taking classes at NYU. I don't think Gina's SAT scores are high enough. I hope she has a safety school in mind.
Something about that waitress reminds me of (gasp!) Aldo Kelrast. Could that be why she she uses the menus to conceal her name badge?"Good for her!" exclaims Mary. "Since Gina hit the big time, maybe I'll ask her to return that healthy tip I left her. How many months ago was that?"
"It became serious almost instantly." Was that while they were still in the dining room of Bobby's hotel?
Wow, that's really cool that a waitress can just go and "take classes" at NYU at the drop of a hat!!!!
Anon@9.43a - gee, my son had to actually apply and take all those GRE's and pay money before HE could "take classes" at NYU! Of course, that was seven or so years ago, so maybe things have "loosened up" at NYU and they're now taking anybody...
This is the waitress who was called in to take Gina's place when they couldn't budge her out of that seat. Gina still kept getting up to claim all the tips though.Naturally, Noname Waitress feels like she knows Mary, and is grateful to her for getting rid of Gina. Diner will be a much more pleasant place to work now.
This is not the NYU that everybody is thinking of. Gina is getting a mail-order diploma from a shady place called, "Name Your University". She is starting with an English Comp class in which she will get to write out the story of her "Young Love Rediscovered". She will get an A because the teacher won't ever bother to read it, but the guy running the operation, a member of the mob, will find it in the trash. He alone will find it "very interesting."I'm wondering if Moy also went to that kind of University.
Mary the finer stood in the dinergossiping in front of a pie,She put up a digit, rendered the waitress a midgetAnd said, "Wow, did this story fly by!"
All we know about Gina is what our writer tell us -- she is a waitress. Some are in such jobs because they never had the opportunity, encouragement of mentors or parents, or financial help. It doesn't mean they dont have the intellectual capacity to excell at a major university. Countless examples like Gina rose from poverty and burger flipping jobs to success in industry, medicine, and science because someone gave them a chance. This is her chance. Wish her well. She may one day be your heart surgeon or oncologist.
Moy learned her writing skills in New York City at PS 116. She dropped out in 8th grade.
I think Waitress got wind of Mary's generous tip, and is hoping to have a long chat with Mary herself. Perhaps she can best Gina's story with one of her own; after all, this IS the hideout for the Waitress Protection Plan.
I already miss Coach Hammy McFist. I wonder if he misses "his boys" now that his own version of Ono Lennon has entered the picture.
Poor Mary! She's trying to spin that pie on her finger, no doubt trying to get into that New York State of Mind and channel her homies the Harlem Globetrotters.But it didn't work.--Beagle Vet
Aha! At last the James Lipton connection reveals itself. In NYC, The New School, a New York University, was originally the home of the (drum roll) Actors Studio. So perhaps the undoubtedly eavesdropping maitre d'suggested to Gina that she attend "a" New York University. I'm pretty sure that Gina could meet the New School Standards, which are (1.)a heartbeat and (2.)a tuition check.Pedantically yours, Meg
Pink curtains.Blue trucker hat.Welcome to Diner. Now With Service! (Ask us about pie!)
Mary has set Gina up for a monumental fall. When Bobby turns out to be a louse, Gina will have to come crawling back to her job at Diner. And who will be there to offer solace and advice? None other than Mary, master puppeteer. Genius!!
''But you haven't heard that from me, cause I'm not one to gossip!''
@ Paul Pennington, You don't understand. This site is not for any serious conversations. If you can't say something nasty, don't say anything. That aside, I agree with you. Gina was taking classes at Santa Royale CC. Many choose that route for financial reasons. And many students have to work at menial jobs plus taking out huge student loans. I'm sure Bobby will support her efforts both emotionally and financially.
Hopefully Waitress gets tipped well so she can get that thumb taken care of.
What about the dork in the background who doesn't take his hat off inside the diner?
Former flame? Who in the world talks like that? Oh, Karen Moy, right. WV: underfu...this story line ending in an underfulfilling fashion.
@ Anonymous 4:24...Bobby will support Gina until he's bored with her or she wants to get serious, then he'll kick her to the curb. You can't tie down a major player like Bobby Black.
@BaHa... me too. For heaven's sake, everyone knows that Gina and Bobby spent their time together skateboarding with friends. Perhaps wrestling over a basketball. Gina looks no older than ten in most of her memories of him. "Former flame"? Flame? as in HOT? I wouldn't mind so much if Dr. Drew referred to Liza as his "former flame", but it's almost wrong here.
NYU? One of the most pricey schools in the US? Lets hope Gina can get a part time job in the university cafeteria...no, lets not...My word verification: "ciesses", how Gina spells the "classes" she will take at NYU.
Maybe Mary will come home from Diner to find a message on her answering machine -- that is, if she has one -- and it will be from Gina thanking Mary for everything. THAT should be conclusion enough for this storyline.And now, on to the next. Personally, I'm curious to see how Bonnie? Bonnie Johnson? is doing? Did she finally curb her shopping addiction and hoarding?
