Why does Mary cast a shadow on Toby that looks like a screen?
Yes, I would call lying to management and falsely accusing the vice-president of theft "a questionable act."
Mary is so shocked in the second panel, she's about to remove her face. That might shock the so-called unshockable Toby.
Head tilting, face touching...when will the madness end??
Just reading the Sunday strip now: Another clue that Nola is really a "he"! The bible quote in panel 1 for those who didn't see it:"What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?" Matthew 16:26
I wonder if Mary is going to look up the guy that Nola got fired, and tell him what she did? Or maybe, she'll just go straight to the company's president, and tell him herself. I doubt she can guilt Nola into doing it. I wish this story would get going, already.
Haven't these two heard of Tonya Harding?Accidents happen, Nola.
Of course nothing shocks you these days, Toby. That battle with identify theft really took those blinders off, didn't they. I was really into the Nola storyline at first, but now I'm starting to feel that there is no point to any of this at all.
What kind of company does Nola work for anyway? All we have seen are four employees, who do nothing but hang out in the hallway.
@Chester - and, we might add, a company who believes the word of a low-level clerk over their VP with regards to his thieving ways. Wonder if they have any job openings?
In that first panel it looks like Toby is demonstrating what she'll do to Ian if he gets too chummy with Nola.
That's quite the side-eye Toby is giving Mary in panel two today. Could it be she's finally sick of Mary's meddling, platitudes, face-touching, and DA hairstyle?--Beagle Vet
Does she mean the top of her career in crime?
Toby, on the phone with Nola: Hey, girlfriend, howz it going? Just wanted to let you know about developments on this end. Yes, ODMM* is working like a charm. Mary is dithering, sputtering, pretending to be shocked, and face-touching like mad. What are you going to "confess" next? Murder? Arson? Tax fraud?Whaaat? You're going to tell her you're pregnant with Ian's child? Uh, well, I got to tell you, she'll never believe that. I, uh, have had some pretty frank talks with Mary, and, well, the gist of it was, there's snow on the roof, and there's no fire in the fireplace. So you've gotta come up with something you can get her to believe. Wait! I've got an idea. It's been done before, but Mary probably won't know that. Tell her that you once drove to Canada with a dog strapped to the top of your car. Too nasty, you say? Noooola! Where is your lack of conscience? You'll do it? Great- I'll be watching Mary for her horrified reaction. This is so much fun!*Operation Drive Mary Mad
"Nothing shocks me these days, Mary." Translation: "Give me the dirt, NOW, Mary, I can't wait to hear ALL of it!"
Mary, puh-leeze! Stop picking at that big peanut-shaped skin tag on your temple. It's gross, and it could be dangerous.
