Regular water... and true love if it ever comes knocking at the door.
Today's Full Strip
I'm so disappointed; I'd hoped Ma Kinley was going to expand on her refusal of asparagus by explaining how it made her pee stinky.Does Beth cut her hair with a blunt knife?
Meg, yesterday you made a pretty bold plot prediction. But you really let me down. Mary's doorbell doesn't go ding dong, it goes buzz buzz.
But who could the mystery fourth guest be?I don't know about the rest of you, but the suspense is killing me!
Oh no, Killer Bees!
It's just Elinor. She had another senior moment and locked herself out.
Oh, please, let it be Charley Smith at the door.
@anonymous 8:44 lmao
Who drinks water with dinner? Gack.
@Toots McGee--I really did Laugh Out Loud. How funny (and Most Excellent) would THAT plot development be?"I'll just have regular water."--If there isn't a Worthy yet for the dumbest, most banal line of dialogue yet, I NEED to beg that Wanders create one, and I NEED to nominate this line.Since we all know that the Mystery(Not) Guest is Tom Harpman, Miraculously Cured, I want to offer better alternatives. Who would be more fun?1. OBV.--Killer Bees.2. John Dill bearing a life size Mary Worth Homage Cake3. Toby and a housewarming clown painting, which Elinor slogs off on4. Dawn and Jim, the latter unmercifully blistered as a cripple by Elinor5. Wilbur, whose pudginess is slammed as "pure laziness and gluttony" by Elinor
"Hot water with lemon"--as if the old bag wasn't acidic enough.Beth doesn't need a man for self-esteem, she needs a good hairdresser. (And a big enough advance on the next book to finally leave home.)
Hello, my name is Elder PriceAnd I would like to share with youThe most amazing book.
Oh please let it be Professor Chinbeard at the door wearing a kilt! Toby, of course, isn't with him as she TRIED to warn Ian the new neighbors seem "scary", but...
How about Mary's crazy funhouse? The mirror, lamp and curtains to the left of Beth in Panel 1 have transformed into flowers, end table and an amoeba portrait.
Water with lemon, extra bitter for Elinor. For Beth, regular water, not that high-falootin tap water.@Sandi Ego: not that vicious man eating shark....
Elinor's choice of drink explains a lot about why she's so dang cranky.
Hot water + lemon = sourpuss.
What will Tom be wearing? That is, if he's not still in a bathobe.I kind of see him in a banana yellow sportcoat (too large), a pink Santa Royale Sand Fleas athletic jersey, and gray poofy Dockers.
What makes any of you think it's a doorbell? I'm sure Charterstone has at least one chainsaw-wielding maniac.
I enjoy irregular water.
Re: The insistent buzzing of the doorbell and possible incipient romance: You might recall a past youngish couple named Jenna and Mike who described their falling in love as a "strange buzzing feeling." Could this unexpected guest signal love about to bloom? Right in the midst of the asparagus salad and regular water? Re: Saturday Night Live references. Is one of the dinner guests about to become the Thing That Wouldn't Leave, ala John Belushi?
Maude, I hate raisins, too. I thought I should mention that there is a conveniently located In-and-Out burger near Goleta, not to mention the Diner. What say we get some Rainbow Swirl after this awful dinner with plain water?
Would it be too much to ask for Moy to surprise us with a May-December romance between Elinor and Tom?
Thanks Jenna for explaining the context of the secret message. I forget not everyone has been obsessed for as long as we have.
Regarding the context of the secret message: I am glad to be able to be of some service to the great Wanders who has brought us so much joy by creating and maintaining Mary Worth and Me. Although I freely admit to being obsessed with Mary Worth, I remember the past "strange buzzing feeling" panel more vividly than most because my longtime boyfriend is named Mike. Being part of a youngish couple with similar names as the buzzing pair cemented their cartoonish love into my memory.
