If you left your sweater somewhere and went back to retrieve it, wouldn't you begin describing it by the COLOR, not that it's "medium length"?
Not only do the waitresses look identical to one another, they share the same non-life, looking for Mary's medium sweater.
When you apply to work at Diner, it is important that your name be no longer than 4 letters. These precious, handcrafted signs could not possibly hold names such as Veronica, Penelope or Cassandra. Those might work at the classy Bum Boat, but at Diner, things are much snappier!Now, are we going to get the inevitable confrontation on the road or will we discuss the relative merits of various sweater lengths this week?
Bree must be Alison's twin sister. And yes, describing a sweater by its length does seem a bit off-kilter, and provides further evidence that Moy is not really from Planet Earth.
Great comment by Shmoopie@8:26 AM!I hope that Bree kept Mary's sweater safe by storing it in Diner's freezer, and that Thuggy crashes into the frozen knitwear as he drags Emily into a booth.
By the way, I left my classes at your restaurant last night. They are the ones with the clear lenses.
The kidnapper is most likely Emily's father who is under a restraining order.
The sweater is not described by colour because colours are so *fluid* in the Worthiverse - for example, people often switch hair colours between panels. The sweater could have arrived as a green one, been purple a few panels later, and now be orange. It's the Worthiverse, remember?
Things are moving very quickly. The kidnapping may be solved by Valentine's Day.
If Gina were still there, she'd have met Mary at the door, sweater in hand! Can't get good help any more...What kind of length is medium? Versus floor length? Or those cute, super short sweaters that far younger folk now wear?
Sadly, you're probably right on the timing Phoebes. I was hoping for a Christmas miracle of the child being reunited with her family, but Valentine's Day is likely more realistic.
Not so fast...Bree also thought the Emily-is-Missing-Poster would be "SAFE!" taped up on the OUTSIDE of Diner's window where wind, rain, sun, and thugs could get to it! I wouldn't trust this gal with a ham sandwich, let alone my favorite medium sweater!!
Yes, I kept it safe for you, safe from all the medium length sweater-lovers who are anxious to wear a second-hand sweater that smells like mothballs and old lady.
So what's with the emphasis on the word "SAFE"? I don't understand the bold words that appear in comic strips sometimes(not just Mary Worth). When you say the sentence out loud, placing emphasis on the bolded word, it sounds strange...
Thorpnotized, the only explanation I have is that this is a classic typo. 4-letter waitress meant to say, "I kept it IN THE safe for you." Where Diner keeps all the valuables customers leave behind. WV (honest to goodness): unsilly - which is exactly how I feel!
I think the emphasis on the word "safe" is actually a dig at DINER's competition, The Lemon Wedge - e.g., "We keep customers' items safe here at DINER unlike that crappy Lemon Wedge restaurant where they let crime run rampant and don't give a hoot if nogoodniks steal old lady's wallets."
I think it's SAFE in contrast to that little girl over there getting yanked around by that giant thuggy guy. Yes, we're proud of keeping your sweater safe. This diner is a good safe place for sweaters and thuggy guys.
My daughter, Emily, is missing. She is medium length. Have you seen her?
I hope that Mary runs into Amy at DINER, trying to eat her cheese nachos with her lame arm.
I am trying to figure out if Thuggy is a deadbeat Dad and Emily is his child or ? I don't quite get it. I did wonder why the poster was on the outside of the window making it easy for it to be torn off.
Tuesday: Yes Mary: it's young Tatum O Neal. Hurry and get her autograph, or snap a picture using your jitterbug cell phone (presuming they weren't in your purse). You can have her sign right between Mickey Rooney and Andy Rooney.
