The End. Excellent story. Which part was your favorite? I liked when Jeff wiped his face with Chin Napkin. What about you? What were some of your favorite memories of Frannie's Mom Gets a Divorce?
Today's Full Strip
Wouldn't you love to see the Bum Boat getting one of those "Kitchen Nightmares" or "Reastaurant Impossible" makeovers? Imagine the British celebrity chefs dropping profanity bombs while ranting about the fish decor, the tiny utensils, and the cat food appetizers.Parenthetically, I wish Uncle Joe (or whoever) would decide what Jeff looks like. Today, the good doctor has developed a decidedly simian upper lip.
I liked the part where Mary ordered Lemon Cake, but she was served Fancy Feast Souffle with Wild Salmon, Garden Veggies and Egg...and she didn't even notice!Were Frannie and Sad Mom grifters?
A plot to remember, particularly the changing visage of Dr. Jeff Cory, man of many faces. This is what eating at the Bum Boat regularly does to a person, although being the main squeeze of Mary Worth undoubtedly contributes to it as well. As @fauxprof points out today, Jeff is looking simian today - "Bedtime for Bonzo," Jeff?
Jeff isn't wiping his chin with Chin Napkin; Chin Napkin is hovering in front of Jeff's mouth! Chin Napkin is an independent entity, thank you very much!
I thought Jeff looked like a giant insect in Panel Two.My favorite part was The Magic Candle. First it beamed with nuclear capability, then merely melted, unattended and powerless, into the table linens.But my favorite panel and caption was yesterday--"AS JEFF WAITS"The intangibles were scintillating.
I like when Mary's paying the bill caused her left eye to slide down her cheek.
Why should we expect Joe to finally decide what Jeff looks like when he can't even decide what Mary looks like? Come to think of it, he has trouble deciding what pretty much anything or anybody looks like. Except for Chin Napkin, who is clearly the most consistently rendered character.
Are we sure, are we really sure that this plot is over?Hard to believe that Mary wouldn't want to get involved in the affairs of this wonderful mother and her wonderful daughter.
My favorite part was Mary never telling Jeff about being saved (twice) by KenKen the Broadway legend, touring and dining in NYC with him, and having him persistently request she stay in NYC forever with him - and she had to think about it. Frannie and mom were nothing more than a convenient distraction for Mary.Also liked Jeff's insight that "divorce is hard" - thanks Jeff.
Woohoo! Chin Napkin reprises his most acclaimed performance as a floating serviette. How does he do it? He's back on top, baby!
I think this bland little story was Moy's answer to sorbet. A light and refreshing break between servings of KenKen and her next nail biter.
Perhaps we can look forward to a few weeks of Random Acts of Meddling. Tomorrow: Mary drops a quarter in a blind man's cup, then takes back a dime in change (so he won't spend it on drink). Friday: Mary drunk dials the Olympic Opening Ceremonies and tells Putin he has a bit of spinach between his teeth.Saturday: Mary suggests that Toby's hair is suffering from overbleaching.Sunday: Mary attends church and points out that the minister has plagiarized a sermon of the late Reverend Jerry Falwell.
Does anyone really say "thanks for paying" instead of just "thanks"?And I believe that Mary's ominous this time foreshadows more of the story/plot/painfully extended episode than we all wish for.Meepy and her Moppet will be back.
Several laugh-out-loud comments today. Thank you, fellow Worthiversians!
Jeff, version panel 2, looks eerily like a young Jimmy Hoffa.
I just want to know how Mary enticed the Downer Duo out of the room, and where she hid the bodies.
Come on, everyone, you know this isn't over yet. Would Mary Worth really leave the restaurant without making it very, very clear to the mother-in-pearls and her adorable moppet that she treated them to dinner? (I'm assuming that she paid for their dinner, too, unless this strip has suddenly become unpredictable.)
Mary probably gave the little moppet one of her left-over cookies. You remember, the ones she made last year for Emily from Goleta. Oh sure, it may have been stale by now and had a glob of purse lint on it, but hey...it was the thought that counts. (And afterall, Emily LOVED the cookies.) Mary sure knows how to make a kid happy!
My favorite part was when Mary said, in a stage whisper, "HEY, JEFF! WHAT'S GOING ON WITH THOSE TWO SAD SACKS AT THE TABLE OVER THERE!?"
