In a desperate attempt to once again gain Mary's attention, Jeff has dyed his hair blonde.
Today's Full Strip
Judging from that big dust cloud, "Dr. Jeff" has trouble driving and talking to Mary at the same time. Keep it on the road, Doc.(I used quotation marks above because, in comparing the man in today's strip with the one from yesterday, I'm not sure which one is the real Dr. Jeff. Definitely not the same guy.)
Does Jeff know that Mary's "friend" is a man? He will not be pleased when he finds out.
Why does Dr. Jeff keep pursuing that human Q-Tip Mary Worth? Does he have masochistic tendencies>Jeff has a successful medical practice, is probably very wealthy, and seems reasonably handsome. There are women half Q-Tip's age who would be thrilled to go out to eat with Dr. Jeff at the Sunken Ship or whatever it is called.Kick Q-Tip to the curb, Doc!!!!
@J.R. Clark--Right on! The Q-Tip comment cracked me up. What also struck me about the second panel comment: "How was your session helping your friend?" was how generic it is. As though Dr. Jeff is just 'phoning it in' now that he knows he gotten as far with Mary as he's likely to get. But who could blame him?!?
I'm trying hard to recall the Ron Amalfi story. I can't remember if Jeff knew about Mary's "friend" and bacame resentful after a while of if he immediately got all hurt and possessive.During their big break up scene, I do recall what was at issue was that Jeff really wanted to take Mary to the Bum Boat. Maybe Mary learned something. Let Jeff take you to the Bum Boat and that will keep him satisfied. Maybe also make him some snacks to watch in front of the TV.I really don't think Moy is going to repeat the story. Then again, maybe Jeff getting jealous of John Dill is better than what will actually happen.I love the metallic fuschia paint job Dr. Jeff got on his fastback.
The expression on Mary's face today seemed eerily familiar, and then it struck me--Nurse Ratched in "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest" saying "I think we can help him"...just before the electroconvulsive shock treatment.Better cooperate, John Dill.(I got a little dizzy this morning, trying to figure out the perspective inside Dr. Jeff's car.)
Driving your girl to a date with another guy? Sadly, we've heard this before: http://abcnews.go.com/Travel/cops-woman-crashes-car-shaving-privates/story?id=10065885#.UOrV7-T7Kyo ... and be warned that the link may not be family friendly. Or anyone friendly.
Does anyone watch American Horror Story? I see interesting similarities between that show and Mary Worth. Jessica Lange plays Mary. All of the various characters are actually the undead... just like in Santa Royale.
"Your session helping your friend" makes it sound like Mary is doing free-lance psychotherapy. That's probably what Mary believes she's doing. She's gone from admiring John Dill's "holiday" cake to intimating that he's a hopeless bozo who hasn't a prayer of succeeding without her.
Mary seems so condescending in Panel Two. "Oh, ha ha. I'm really going to have to step in and do everything myself if this poor dummy has even a prayer of getting something to the Judges' Table."And what is up with Jeff's question? The odd phrasing really makes it sound like Mary is keeping him in the dark. How goofy this whole thing is. Der.
I believe that Jeff may have the same affliction as Benjamin Button.
Did Jeff just steal that car--it has no license plates. And I find it hard to believe that these two had dinner and everything and aren't getting around to discussing Mary's "friend" until now. Not good timing since he seems to be taking those curves pretty fast...
Nice hair Dr. Jeff. I can see them checking in at the hostess station: "Oh, how nice of you to take your mother out to dinner!'Please do us all a favor Dr. Jeff: take a sharp right at the next bend in the road and pull a Kelrast.
Embarrassed to admit that I'm focusing so closely of Jeff's chest in panel 2, but is that an open-collared shirt and sweater vest of EXACTLY the same color? Or it that a sport shirt with a chevron pattern?Overall, I'm really loving the John Dill/Cake Design story.
Well, it's gratifyingly Dawn Weston-free, I'll give it that. Although maybe she'll make a surprise reappearance at the cake-design finals. I only hope it's with Jim, and not her father, as I wouldn't trust Wilbur within fifty miles of anything cake-related...
@Mary,Oh, it's a matching shirt and vest combination all right! That's how they roll in the Worthiverse.I like how Dr. Jeff has not only painted his "sports" car pink, but has had an extra-long right arm grafted on to reach the ginormous steering wheel he had installed just left of center on the dashboard.He must've had the car work done while he was in the hospital recovering from the arm surgery...
I hope this storyline doesn't turn into "cake decorating is brutal" as the main theme.
