Do you have any idea how humiliating it is for someone as excruciatingly handsome as myself to submit to physical therapy?
Today's Full Strip
A little FYI. Any issues with someones upper extremity is treated by an occupational therapist, not a physical therapist. This is a serious "cartoon" so we need accountability!!
I see it all now... Dawn, fresh from her epiphany about not taking life for granted will be so taken by this poor guy's psychological struggles that she decides to devote her life to helping those in emotional pain. She'll change her major and in only 12.5 years become: Dr. Dawn Weston, Clinical Psychologist, Extraordinaire! Oh... what the heck am I thinking. This self-centered brat is probably not even hearing a word he's saying. "Mmm... tasty sandwich." (The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, as they say...)
I agree with firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd guess that Moy is going to try to stay "current" by having Jim - by the way, do we know that's his name? - having been wounded in Iraq or Afghanistan. And if he and the doctors think he has problems NOW, can you imagine the poor guy's life after getting involved with Dawn!
right, unless he has range of motion issues with his shoulder, I can't see where Physical Therapy will do much good. However this IS Mountview Hospital, so....yeah.
Did Jim lose the arm to accident or disease? It's hard to make any sense out of his dialog today. I still think there's some kind of unspecified terminal illness in play here to further the plot line in a feeble attempt to make Dawn a fully functioning human being. Lotsa luck with that one!
For three days, Jim's sleeve was perfectly flat and empty-appearing. Today- it's full of elbow, all the way up to the wrist. It's a miracle!
Maybe Jim's PT is the one who suggested he get a shirt with velcro instead of buttons.Dawn, could you please find out if he has a string he can pull in order to salute when someone plays the national anthem?

@ Meg -There's a lot going on in there! Jim's got something up his sleeve.
Duck- hahahahaha- why didn't I think of that?
How thoughtful of Jim to touch his forehead to indicate where there's a lot of invisible stuff going on. In the first panel he was addressing his empty sleeve.Unless Mountview Hospital is run by the VA, I doubt Jim was injured in Iraq or Afghanistan. Maybe he was trampled by Bobby Black when the NY Blazes played Santa Royale Indoor Soccer Team.
I think Ms. Moy is about to stumble I mean venture into the world of PTSD in former service members. Hilarious unintentional insensitivity will no doubt ensue.Whose story will she plagiarize? I'm betting on Rambo. Even though he's fictional.--Beagle Vet
I think Jim may have a promising career as a puppeteer.
I'm thinking they are going "as timely as if ripped from Today's headlines!" and turns out he was near-fatally nommed by a nekkid bath salts person.
