Mary Worth 1,605

That's a pretty narrow door for ambulances.

What kind of sadistic hospital puts its Doctors' Lounge right next to its Ambualance entrance??

Yahoonski said...

Yes, Tom will have to disguise himself as an ambulance if he wants to get in there and embrace Elinor as promised. (They had to move her out of Doctors' Lounge because people kept mistaking her for Dr. Kildare's mentor - Dr. Gillespie!)

fauxprof said...

In panel one, they seem to be standing in front of an elevator that has three call buttons (up, down and sideways). But panel two shows them in front of the "ambulances only" door, which is quite dangerous, since an ambulance could come careening through the interior halls from either side.

I keep telling you, Uncle Joe is deliberately messing with us.

What kind of hospital has a door where ambulances can drive right onto the linoleum of the hospital? Don't they stay outside and why would visitors be able to stand there? Aren't there ambulances coming through with emergency personnel rushing to that entrance? Also, and keeping this clean, what is that shadow behind Tom's left shadow. Looks a bit Freudian to me.

that's it the blue uniform jacket standing by the ambulance door Tom's job is an ambulance attendant the marijuana growing is his hobby

Mary said...

What heroic thing has Tom ever done? Peeling carrots doesn't count.

The comment about the shadow behind Tom made me giggle, because I'm that immature.

Beth: "Tom Harpman, in a world gone mad, I'm mad about you."

Tom Harpman: "This has been fun. What are we doing for our 2nd date?"

Nance said...

Tom and Beth's love is truly a moveable feast. They probably are on their way to Elinor's room and keep stopping to make out, first at the Doctors' Lounge, now at the Ambulances Only entrance, perhaps next at the Nurses' Station. They may not get to Elinor's room until Wednesday or Thursday.

If they wouldn't stop to quote such sappy dialogue, they'd get there sooner and with less snark from us.

Anonymous, Tom's shadow must be intentional. I think Joe Giella's summer intern is slipping in lewd images while Joe's enjoying a three-regular-water lunch.

I love how Tom lumps Beth's mother into the "everything that comes with you" category. "Beth, I love your dowdy wardrobe, mediocre writing career, limited cooking skills, and - oh yeah - your nag of a mother."

My PYNAR words are "determine 47.3." There are several Bible references for 47:3, however I take it as regarding Tom Harpman: Genesis 47:3: "So Pharaoh asked the brothers 'what is your occupation?'" Who knew this strip could be so interactive!

I may barf after reading that last panel. WHO TALKS LIKE THAT!?!?!!?!?

Please, PLEASE let an ambulance come barrelling through the narrow, swinging elevator door and take them both out! Then the EMTs can give them some tPA and heparin after they perform an MRI with their portable scanner. Or just perform neurosurgery right there in the hallway. Cuz that's what EMTs do, you know.

And, *snicker* at the shadow. Cuz even though I am a 50-year-old woman and hold several advanced degrees, I have the sense of humor of a twelve-year-old boy.

(Sunday) Um . . . a heart attack? Someone want to bring Narration Box up to speed here?

kathyo said...

How thoughtful of Mary to send Elinor that arrangement of pinkcake pops.

Nance said...

SUNDAY

Elinor turns away in the last panel, horrified by the extra finger Beth has suddenly sprouted.

Beyond that, how is it that Beth and TomHarpman both suffer so in profile, yet Elinor (the ugliest woman in the world) suddenly becomes lovely and womanly in her profile shot today?

@Gina--I hear you. We were led to believe that Elinor faked her episode to get even with Beth. Lots of stupidity in this plot.

fauxprof said...

Wait...what? Wasn't it established that Elinor was faking it? Now we are told that she's actually had a heart attack? Well, between all those pills she takes, and Beth's salt-laden cooking (not to mention the chronic anger), she's certainly a prime candidate.

However, she's not hooked up to a heart monitor, nor to that IV unit by the bed. My guess is that there's a savvy nurse-practitioner that's not buying this at all.

MissScarlet said...

I can't believe that this is all the Elinor histronics we're going to get. One fake, undiagnosed, mild heart attack. Move along folks. It's all over. Nothing to see now.

This morning I am especially grateful for you, my fellow inmates, because I do not want to be alone in my insanity.

Toots McGee said...

Where is Hospital Hi-Fi when we need him?

kathyo said...

Suddenly Elinor sits up in her sickbed and commands Beth to "FIND BOBBY BLACK!"

TeacherPatti said...

Nance, OMG I totally didn't notice the fingers until you pointed it out. Now I can't look away....

Anonymous said...

Poor Elinor. Her hand has turned into a lobster claw and she now looks like Tom Harpman will in 50 years.

Mary said...

Maybe Elinor will treat us to a hospital-bed flashback about her whirlwind romance with a dashing six-fingered man.
