Mary Worth 1973

I have no idea what movie they're seeing, but clearly it's a HUGE hit with the coveted 45-60 demographic!

Perhaps Sean's left arm has gone to join those legs that disappeared beneath the piano.

If their movie theatre is anything like the one I attend, they've got almost half an hour of previews and Coke commercials to look forward to.

This must be the non working, old people's $5.00 matinee. I can see the Bingo bus pulling up right now. Remember to remove your babushkas. No worries about anyone texting or cellphones going off. As Abby Hoffman said "it's Ok to shout theatre at a crowded fire". That's completely unrelated but it somehow came to mind.

Next Panel:

Hanna: ...because when I come to the movies with Amy, we bring Gordy and I have to see a Michael Bay film. Things blow up, it plays havoc with my hearing aid, and everyone around us constantly complains to Amy to get off her phone.

Looks like Sean is about to remove his dentures so that the popcorn kernels don't get stuck.

I assume this touching scene in the Santa Royale UniPlex will last at least until Sunday to enable the once-a-week readers to boo-hoo along with Hanna. Will next week be more of Sean and Hanna making goo-goo eyes at each other, or will it be another week of Mary's self adulation? Holy mackerel, bad and worse...

They've chosen "Still Alice", under the misapprehension that it's an adaptation of "Alice in Wonderland". Boy, are they in for a surprise.

They should have stayed home. TCM showed "Singin' In The Rain" last night, and it sure made me feel better.

If Dingdong's eyesight is so bad that she can't drive, how is she going to see the movie? Or is Sean going to whisper a play-by-play account to her during the entire movie?

Yahoonski said...

Good point, r u ok?, although the only things we've had evidence that Hannah has trouble seeing are people with white hair driving cars in the Charterstone parking lot. Can you imagine sitting behind these two for a whole movie.
"Do you want some popcorn, Schmoopie?"
"No, you're Schmoopie"
"No, you are."
Yeesh.

A question for the Mary Worth and Me-verse: How old do you think Hanna and Sean are supposed to be? Most of the people in their mid 60s to early 70s I know (including my mother and her fiance, who are avid fly fisherfolk and pursue other exerting hobbies) seem younger than Hanna and Sean. Just a question.

KitKat said...

@Anonymous at 10:14 a.m., Mr. KitKat and I have discussed this also. I'm a Baby Boomer (though I prefer "Mid-Century Modern," ha), and if Ms. Moy thinks Hanna and Sean share my demographic, I am highly insulted. H and S look and act like they're pushing 90. Of course, by my calculations, Mary is about 141.

LouiseF said...

The man behind Hanna and the woman behind Sean look a bit concerned that these two might be prone to chattering throughout the movie, especially now that Sean has (FINALLY) confessed his love for Hanna.. Nice timing, Sean. What's next? A marriage proposal during the credits?!

Practically Dead from Storyline Boredom said...

Hmmm... Yellow and blue people... so the happy couple has jaundice while the rest of the audience is asphyxiated?

Chin Napkin Groupie said...

They're being lifted up and taken away with a showing of "Driving Miss Daisy." Hanna and Sean love movies about the younger generation.

Dawn Weston's Evil Twin said...

Wow, things are moving really quickly in the Worthiverse, aren't they? Calm down, Hanna Dingdon. You're giving me a case of whiplash. (Of course, I just can't look away! What will happen next?)

Yahoonski said...

Well, KitKat, as a fellow mid-century modern, I think Sean and Hanna are in the 70-75 range, which is still too young for being relegated to "the home," unless of course you've got some terrible disability such as less-than-perfect vision.

So the is about second love, then Sean dies and Hanna gets his apartment and Mary Worth will say something about good coming from heartbreak, and then we will be mercifully done with this but not before most of us are doing the silent scream.

Saturday
It's a good thing that bag is labeled "Popcorn." I thought it was styrofoam packing pellets. Hanna is hogging it, and it made her hair shrink between panels. If Sean manages to eat some, will his mustache disappear?

Sunday
How about Seanna as an annoying Brangelina-type name squash for this newly established romantic couple of film fans? I apologize to everyone for sharing this bizarre proof that Mary Worth has sadly seeped into my subconscious at inopportune moments.

Maxwell Bacon said...

Well, Hanna and Sean's lives sure are enough for me. Yay! True love!

I think I actually felt brain cells dying while reading Sunday's dialogue.
