Sorry, just had to mention...."their hands"....right?
Yeah, agree, this is the spookiest panel yet. Where did that hand with the glass of water come from? And where have those hands been, for goodness' sake?
Those hands know no faces, except in slapping!
Luna has morphed again! If I didn't know better, I'd think Mary and Nola were at Diner. Where's the patio with the potted shrubbery? Where are the pink draperies? Who put up those blinds? And, most of all, how many more days are Mary and Nola going to say the same things? Maybe the repetition is making Nola sick - she's about to put her finger down her throat. Should we all do the same?
Their scorn was probably related to the fact that you have a fully functional hand growing out of your chest. Just saying.
I haven't read all of the comments going back to the beginning of this story, so apologies if this has been discussed - but these dinner 'discussions' are serving no purpose other than for Nola to assert her dominance and make veiled threats at Mary, correct? I'm expecting Nola to make Mary's life a nightmare in future panels and I better not be disappointed.
Toby had the good sense to shun this woman, stay home, and keep Chinbeard "under wraps". Mary could learn a thing or two from Toby, methinks. The next clown Toby paints should be of... Mary!
Long story short: Nola continues to confess to a 'horrified'-but secretly delighted Mary. The confessions get juicier and jucier, murder, extortion, grand theft auto. Mary does her meddly best to show Nola the error of her ways, but it doesn't work. Nola dies a horrible death.
Apparently, the Addams Family lost Thing and he's now found work as a waiter. Good for you, Thing!Meanwhile, I've been sitting here on my hands waiting for Mary to launch into her "Let me tell you a story" diatribe. The funny thing would be that when the panel cuts back to the restaurant, all that will be left of Nola will be a puff of smoke an an airborne napkin (much like Gina's order pad flying through the air)
So many unnatural hand positions today! Even in the second panel, Mary's detached left hand is coming in from the right edge of the panel. Why does Mary ask "Is that why you did in your co-worker..."? Nola didn't kill Smithers.@MissScarlet: Thanks for the spelling correction. It bugs me when I see mistakes (especially when they're my own.) @heydave: definitely a slap coming Mary's way. @KitKat: Maybe Mary's vegetable terrine is giving her nightmares, and this is all just a bad dream...
I think another reason that emotions are escalating is because the service at Restaurant is worse than at Diner. Nola and Mary have been there for a week and still no sign of a waiter, and only water to drink.
Talk to the hand, Nola.
Maybe the alien from "Alien" is lurking inside Nola's thorax, but has developed table manners that would make Emily Post proud.At least it's more useful than a superfluous mammary papilla.--Beagle Vet
When I was a kid I loved "What's Wrong With This Picture?" in the Highlights magazine in the dentist's waiting room. Mary Worth is the adult version of that. I keep expecting to find the figure of a monkey disguised among drapery folds.
Is that a seriously disturbing 6-fingered hand we're looking at or some kind of disturbing sculpture in the background those two small, shady people are looking at?
Good lord, they've been in the restaurant so long that it's changed names! And the sidewalk's been repaved.This is going to get even uglier than Mary's housecoat collection. Nola's now used the word "eliminated" in reference to poor Dan Smithers. Karma is going to rhymes-with-rich slap her so bad! --Beagle Vet
Forget their hands! This is a great moment in history-Nietzsche meets Mary Worth! It's time to re-evaluate all values, Mary!
