Mary Worth 1,607

Well, it looks like Elinor has finished reading the Complete Works of Edgar Allan Poe. This story is really moving along now.

Today's Full Strip

Normally, I find these long plot-arcs that take us away from the centrality of Mary Worth's meddling annoying, but today at least I feel a little better; perhaps it's because Elinor appears a great deal more Worthische herself. Being in the ICU must agree with her, going by the healthy bloom and comparative lack of skeletality...

Mary said...

I think the cover boy on Life Styles magazine is the same medallion-wearing dude who stole Mary's wallet that time.

Peggy Olson said...

A few observations:

Judging from the blue substance in Elinor's IV, the hospital must get its pharmaceuticals from Breaking Bad.

Mary, the Cover Boy in the mag could be our diner purse snatcher - or Roy Orbison.

Tom will first reassure Elinor of his *good* intentions. When her guard is finally down, he'll surprise her with his *bad* ones!

In Panel Two, there seems to be a second set of legs under the blanket! With her blue crystal IV, Elinor doesn't notice.

KitKat said...

I agree with @Muscato at 6:51 a.m. - Elinor has never looked better. I doubt it has another to do with that intravenous substance, though, since it's not connected to her body. I'm still clinging to a faint hope of a flashback that will cast light on Elinor's antipathy to men. Or, as she would say it, "MEN!"

Wouldn't drapes like these be germ traps? Mountview must have gotten a deal from Discount Draperies of Santa Royale. Those pink pinch-pleats are everywhere.

Yahoonski said...

Not yet, Tom. If you go walking in there with that huge bulge in your pants she's just going to go off on another of her rants about men.

JustSayin' said...

TomDear is really getting pushy about seeing Elinor. I wonder if he's thinking that one more stressful moment might but the old bat out of ALL their misery...

JustSayin' said...

I mean, 'put'...

Delilah said...

Tomdear bears a striking resemblence to Odo from Deep Space 09. One and the same? You be the judge!

Jay Kay said...

Elinor didn't have a stroke or a heart attack, she just needed an emergency facelift!

meg said...

It's obvious that someone once told Tom that he looked good in extremely bright blue (matches his eyes). That is a shade that is not worn by any man of my acquaintance. I am, however, not acquainted with any of the Toronto Blue Jays.

r u ok? said...

All TomDear has to say is, "Are you okay?" That question changed Nola's life, maybe it would work for Elinor too. Then we could move on to a new plot - we need a new crime for Mary to deal with - kidnapping, theft, fraud, public intoxication, something. And we need a pool party soon. It's summer.

Sandi Ego said...

Appears to be Donald Trump in a burglar mask on the magazine. Unsure about the dumpy female. Maybe That Man knows who it is.

fauxprof said...

There's always a pause before Elinor says or thinks "MAN". I guess she's deleting her own expletives, or else "MAN" is her idea of a dirty word in and of itself.

That unconnected IV seems to be doing her a lot of good, though. We've never seen her look so attractive.

Dave in Parma said...

Is Elinor upset because Beth is with a .....man? Or is she upset because he is with THAT man?

Either of course would be that man....Tom HarpMAN.

kathyo said...

Apparently the blue stuff in the IV bag is Elinor's new hair color.

meg said...

Sandi Ego- Trump in a burglar mask! Love it!

Vicki said...

a little asparagus IV (dyed blue to disguise) never hurt anyone. In fact, Elinor is looking quite fetching today!

Viet Cong Guellirra Readel say: "Ereanole bettel wolly cause rook what happen to Ardo Kerlast who stark Mally Wolth, he dlive call oval criff and say, 'oh, no...'".

Nance said...

Tom Harpman's ladyhands are really starting to freak even Beth out. Notice how she looks down at them before she refuses Tom's offer to come and talk to Elinor.

Robin in DC said...

Tom's not going to get very far with that flat rear left tire and with all those soap suds pouring out of his exhaust pipe.

birdie said...

I'm totally baffled by today's strip. Is Tom going to the office for a few days? What does he do, anyway?

And what creepy thing is Mary doing with that hand? It looks like she's about to rip off the roadway.

JustSayin' said...

Uh-oh, Mary is building up steam! The spying from her window with that facial expression foreshadows full-meddlesome-mode and soon! A happy ending for all is in sight (if 9 months from now is considered "in sight"...).

KitKat said...

Karen Moy delivers a stern rebuke to we denizens of the Worthiverse who've been scoffing at the lonely WORKAHOLIC bachelor Tom Harpman. See, he does have an office to go to.

Is it significant that Beth is thinking instead of saying, "I love you, Tom"? Fear of commitment, Beth? Or fear of mommy's disapproval?

From where is Mary snooping? I thought her unit was on an upper floor. Perhaps she's been staking out the lobby for days, waiting for Beth.

fauxprof said...

Why is Mary stalking Beth? The girl (even though she's obviously thirtyish, she has less emotional maturity than Dawn) has finally come clean and told her mother about that...MAN. It's Elinor who needs the meddle, Mary/Wendy, so put on your purple lab coat and get that cart of big grey books rolling at Mountview.

Does Mary have multiple condos at Cornerstone? Or does her condo span multiple floors? She's on the ground floor spying on the Dears but I've seen her on higher level floors too. Or maybe she has secret passageways to many of the condos where she can sneak around and spy on people.

Anonymous said...

YESSSSS! Mary's back! And she's already knocking on the window to get Beth's attention!

As Tom screeches away, never to be seen again...
