Why wasn't the Emily Smith poster nominated for a "Worth-y"? It could have been in the category - best continuity. It would have been tough going up against the shadows of Mr. & Mrs. Bonnie?BonnieJohnson?!, though....Just sayin'WV has run out of nonsense words - I have gotten two REAL words in a row!
Also, if Thuggy's neck gets any bigger, he is likely to kill poor Emily with the buttons that will explode off of his shirt! His neck grows an inch in diameter each time we see him!
Mary's Jersey Shore reference today shows that Moy is attempting to broaden her appeal to younger readers.
Good to see that Mary is finally getting around to reporting her stolen purse to the police. Hopefully she has her list handy.
I'm giving this a break neck week of weak (content, that is) before anything actually happens beyond thought balloons.
So I'm assuming this is when the story starts to segue to Policeman Mr. Dr. Adrian Cory?Bree looks like Carol Burnett.
Wouldn't it be ironic if the kid in Diner with Thuggy is really NOT Emily, but just some generic blonde kid with a really cranky father?
I get it now! Someone is trying to frame Mary by bringing in a fake Emily, causing her to file a false police report. I can only imagine that the Charterstone residents have had just about enough of her meddling ways.Besides, how can she be sure that the girl is Emily? This one's eyes are closed, can't check their color.
Bree: "?" Who thinks that? And the girl in the DINER looks nothing like Emily. Where is her pink bow? And when you kidnap someone, you usually do not take them out for breakfast?Run to the ladies room, Emily. Lock the door. Problem solved.
@ Chester - Who thinks "?" ? I do.I think "?" nearly every morning at around this time. Today it was Thuggy's neck. ...Things that make you go "?"
Yes Mary, I believe we do have a situation here. While little "Emily" looks nothing like the near college-age young lady in the poster, she seems to morph suspiciously into flashback Mary from a few years ago (Mary and her friend Kathy picking dandelions from cracks in the pavement - ahhh, good times, good times!). I am sure this shape-shifting/morphing has some deep psychological meaning.
Poor confused Bree thinks Mary is freaking out over her sweater. "Call the police, this is not a medium length sweater!" Mary is so agitated the knot in her scarf moves to the side. "?" indeed.
Why is Bree wrapping Mary's arm ina towel? Was she injured?
Chester, often times someone will say something baffling to me and I think to myself "Question mark?". And when something hilarious happens, I shout out "EXCLAMATION MARK!" at the top of my lungs. I get odd looks though. Sigh, no one understands the Worthiverse.
Mary could call the police herself from her cell phone. But she would rather have the drama of calling from the Public Payphone at Diner. Dropping nickles and dimes into the little holes at the top, and dialing many numbers on the ancient rotary dial.
Bree's "?" is appropriate - who is "we" that Mary is talking about. Usually Mary forces her way in to meddle in other peoples' business, but now she is forcing others into her own business. Bree should respond with, "I don't HAVE to do anything Mary, except to pay taxes and die. If you want to take on Thuggy McBigneck then go for it and leave me out it." "?" INDEED!
(1) the ersatz kidnapper is really her father, and he saved her from a religious cult. They are looking for her (hence the missing posters), but she has been stockholm syndrome'd(2) He is really a renegade Mormon and actually has Mary Worth's stolen ID --which he will use to prove that the child is of legal age so he can marry her.(3) Mary gets involved in a hostage situation, and sustains a gunshot wound --the shooter is Adrienne's husband, and he gets busted for excessive force, Mary has to testify against him, and Dr Jeff gets to operate on her.(4) Mary butts in and tries to talk to him --he gets depressed and wastes himself in the diner.(5) Mary butts in and becomes a heroine, and a FOX NEWS exec sees her and gives MW her own advice show.(5) again the ersatz kidnapper is really her father, and he has rescued her from a bunch of crackheads. She is fighting him, because she was next in line to smoke the crackpipe.(6) The ditzy waitress Brie calls the cops, but gets Mary and the kidnapper mixed up. they haul off Mary.
This is all moving too fast. Hopefully, we'll have at least a few months of Mary Worth talking to the kidnapper about his feelings before the cops show up.
I have been trying to think "?" all day now. It makes my right shoulder arch a bit and my neck twitch. My head also tilts a bit tothe left.
Captain Peabody, I am thinking of Barbara Billingsley in the movie "Airplane!" "Oh stewardess,I speak Jive!" Perhaps Mary has the hitherto unknown skill of speaking Thug?
I was surprised when a thought bubble with the Emily poster did not materialize in yesterday's strip. Silly me - we just had to wait a day!
This guy is kind of new to this crime thing, isn't he? Not only does he take his kidnapping victim into a restaurant, he takes her into a restaurant that has her missing poster on the wall by the door. He even saw the poster and dismissed it! Is he trying to get caught?
Who draws an L-shaped thought balloon with right angles?
Thursday--so many thoughts: --the woman who keeps losing things and forgetting clothing hasn't "been able to forget her"--Bree: "she's not missing, shee' right there."--Bree: "They look like regular customers. All our customers are transients, convicts, and escapees. Oh, and you too Mary."
Thursday: Hey, don't worry! The menacing plant is oozing toward Hulk McThuggy and will surely strangle him.In the second panel, Mary's hand is projecting from her chest. All that finger pointing finally has taken a toll on her body.
It turns out that we aren't the only ones reading Mary Worth! (who knew?)See this article:Technophobe Mary Worth is really in a picklehttp://tinyurl.com/7hw99w6
How would Bree know what regular customers look like? She appears to ignore them as much as Gina did.--Beagle Vet
Speaking of "?"...Why is the question on Emily's poster in quotes? And why is the "?" missing!?
Yes, Bree, they look like regular customers, ordering, eating, talking, not tipping(but what could they possibly talk about?)
Bree better watch out, Mary is going to slap her with that giant hand if she doesn't call the police ASAP!
Mary must be senile...that girl in the diner has bangs. No way would a kidnapper try to change his victim's appearance. That would never happen.
But they are regular customers! The kidnapper has been bringing Emily to the diner every day for the past few months. The waitresses have just been too busy dealing with their personal issues and not serving the customers to notice.
Brick at 1:22: The reason that the information on the "Missing" poster is in quotes-This is actually a poster for a musical called Missing, and the words underneath are part of the first song. Try singing it to the tune from "Rent". "Meg"P.S. The chorus is 'have you seen her, have you seen her'.
Swarm, Mary, swarm!
Add the "missing" poster to the "missing" list.Hopefully poor Bree doesn't bruise easily. I wish my Browns running backs would put their heads down and cut through the hole a little more often with the ferocity Mary is using today...
Friday: Since Hulk McThuggy tore up the poster, tomorrow we'll see Mary and Bree piecing it together like a jigsaw puzzle. "Here's a piece of pink hair bow! Here's the letter H! Does it look like her?"Meanwhile, Bree's customers faint from hunger.
Mary is rather forceful as she drags Bree to the door with her eyes closed, causing a much bigger scene in the process.
Haha, Robert - you've got that right!Nice, subtle touch, Mary... TMcT will NEVER notice you SHOVING poor, bewildered, Bree out the door. In fact, I'd be surprised if a customer doesn't call the cops on Mary for assaulting a hapless server!
"Is it of Emily Smith?" Good Lord, how many little girls have gone missing in that crime- infested town?
Oh please, let Mary rip the poster down and run over to Thuggy's girl, hold it up next to her face and yell "Voila!" So, will Mary be a hero or revealed to be under/over medicated?
I'm afraid that this story is part of Mary's redemption arc. First she was a Luddite, then she directed Gina to the internets. Then she was a crime victim, but Voila! she had The List. Then she forgot her sweater, but she didn't forget li'l Emily's face. Verdict: smug, insufferable Mary is on her way back.
