Joe Giella is missing a golden opportunity for cleverness by not changing Dr. Jeff's picture-in-a-frame-face to match the mood of the scene around him.If that is, indeed, Jazzy Jeff...I am, however enjoying the fact that each time Mary is upset, her eyes tend to cross.
A classic combination of sandwiching (hi, Wilbur!) the phone against one's face on a double face touch. The old gal still has it, even if she would need weeks to spend $400 on anything other than tips for debt ridden bad waitresses.
why 400 dollars is at least 80 pieaces of pie or 300 cups of coffee ! ill have no social life for 3 months .maybe jeff will give her the money instead of donating to peace island.
An hour in your world, Mary, will translate into a week in our world. Think of all the damage that can be wrought by the time we end this phone call. Please shut down your credit card already and start tracking down those good-for-nothings!
A hearty "huzzah!" to Wanders for the link to the Free Press piece. Ripped from the headlines indeed - Karen Moy goes all "Law and Order" on us.Compare yesterday's strip to today's. (I tried to provide the link, but the strip won't load on the Post page - sorry.) The table with the phone and the photo of dreamy Doc Jeff is behind Mary both days, but in the 11-10 strip a monstrous orange chair is in the background. Today there is a green wall with a picture frame. As Toby did not appear on 11-10, I'm guessing she moved the chair and the wall as she desperately tries to get Mary's attention. "What about ME, Mary?! Mary, look at ME!"
I certainly hope they didn't also steal Mary's birth control.
Today's panel reminded me of Dr. Evil saying, "One Million Dollars!" Don't you think we should make it for more than four hundred dollars, Moy? Four hundred dollars isn't exactly a shocking amount of money these days. Okay then, the total amount spent today on gift cards is four... hundred... thousand dollars!
lol at the copycat crime....here in North Dakota recently, there was a waitress at Applebee's who stole a customers credit card. the customer left forgeting that the waitress still had it...meanwhile, she racked up some purchases at the Wal-Mart. All I could think of is "Gina, how could you?!?!!"
Just think, this is only ONE of Mary's credit cards! Imagine if she has a whole wallet full! Not to mention her ATM card, her AARP discount card, her Stop & Shop Coupon Club Card...
Don't forget her Medicare! I bet the thieves are ordering Vicodin by the truckload as we write.--Beagle Vet
But the agent on the phone does not tell Mary she is only responsible for the first $50, if any at all.
Considering that Mary's credit limit is $250, a purchase of $400 is quite a shock.
Maybe the thieves will give one of the gift cards to Charlie, I miss him.
Okay Anonymous, I'll bite: who is Charlie? I have another theory. "Sonny and Cher" -- the wallet thieves, that was the name I gave them for some reason -- are, along with Allison the Waitress, the children of Aldo Kerast! They're plotting to ruin Mary's credit rating to avenge her part in Aldo's Thelma-and-Louise-sendoff.
Just had a horrid thought- what if the thieves use Mary's credit cards to purchase... immoral reading materials?
Wait until Mary gets her bill from Enormoushop.@James: Charley Smith - Charterstone's resident lecher. He's a few clicks from the bottom of the list of supporting characters on the blog page.
I assume this is a seasonal PSA from Moy about holiday security issues. But wouldn't it have been more timely to do a Thanksgiving story about the dangers of deep-frying your turkey?
Thanks Mary! I had no idea what $400 was in words instead of numbers!
Oooh, I remember now. Isn't he the Charlie Sheen lookalike -- bowling shirts and all!! -- that tried to put the make on Mary's friend, ol' what's her name. (The one whose husband was a traveling lecturer.)I can't keep all of these bit players straight. However, Chin Napkin will always have a place in my heart. And at my dinner table!
Mary has remarkably white teeth for a woman of her age. Or what she actually has is a remarkably white monotooth.
Bonnie?Bonnie Johnson? would certainly know what to do with $400 in gift cards.
Four days of Mary on the phone and she isn't close to being finished with the first company on the list (there were at least eight). The thieves will have retired in Mexico and will have raised a family before Mary is done with her phone calls.
Ah, Toby springs into action (on Saturday; yes, I have no life)!I think the blank to demented looks on Mary's face while Toby's profile is near perfectly immobile are worthy of the Louvre.
If Toby were offering to help me, I think I'd be doing the "mime knocking helplessly on glass box" thing too.
For Sunday: Not sure why Mary would need to get a new drivers license with new numbers. I mean, yeah, she'll need to get a new drivers license, sure, but she won't need to get the info changed.Meanwhile, I'm imagining "Sonny and Cher" dressed up in old-lady-drag (i.e. Mrs. Doubtfire) trying to cash a check at the Bum Boat using Mary's ID.WV: "traters" All those people who have switched over to reading Apartment 3-G exclusively. To them, I say Traters!
It's nice to see that Mary and Toby have now put on their Sunday best to continue with the calls to the credit card company.--Beagle Vet
Re: Sunday's strip: Mary had better dash to get a new AAA card, lest Sonnie and Cher get a fraudulent TripTik with Mary's old one.
...and then there's her almost FULL S & H Green stamps booklet from 1964!! Boy, that's going to be a hard one to replace!
"Health Care Card"? Who is Mary trying to fool? Mary, we know it's your Medicare card. Toby knows it's your Medicare card. Bob Dole knows it's your Medicare card. You think you're fooling Dr. Jeff about your age? Look in the mirror, girlfriend- your hair has been white since at least 1930!
(Sunday's strip) I love Toby's hand-wringing scenes, but how did she have time enough to slip away to put on her bracelets for the final panel?
Sunday strip, last panel: Is Toby wringing her hands because she just laid eyes on that Halloween pillow behind Mary?Thorpnotized, sharp eyes re Toby's bangle bracelets!
Oh Vicki, not Mary's S&H Green Stamp booklet! She almost had enough stamps for one of those new hand-held mixers - to help make her tasty pies. Oh, I fear that this new storyline will be as long as Gina's ponytail.
I'm still waiting for a cut-away shot of Sonny and Cher kicking up their heels at the Santa Royale Mall using Mary's credit card. However, danger lurks as the sun goes down because, due to the illogical layout of the mall, they are trapped!In next week's strip, the morning-shift manager at Marcy's will find two skeletons decked out in hippie wear clutching Mary's Charge-A-Plate.WV: "cooddles" ... not sure what to say, but I'm sure it's something that Mary Worth would say, do, or bake.
