"Mary was right. You would look better without the beard. But you can keep the Irish spring jacket."
Today's full strip
Ah, those four simple words: "We need to talk"! They rank right up there with "We've sprung a leak", "We're out of gas", "We hit an iceberg" "I lost my wallet" and "The engine won't start". Trust me, wailing and gnashing of teeth will follow.
Unseen third panel in today's strip: Ian with this thought bubble: "Holy bagpipes, I need to call my 'grad assistant,' Trixie Vavoom, and tell her not to stop by with the pizza and Chianti after all!"
Gotta agree with tkraft. How many happy conversations start with "We need to talk"? Usually the phrase "It's not you, it's me" will crop up as well.
You can keep the green jacket AND the salmon skin tie.p.s. KitKat's "Trixie Vavoom" caused a coffee spew hereabouts.
Judging by Toby's unfocused eyes, and swaying walk, she and Ian need to talk about how macular degeneration can lead to blindness.
And here I thought the important words were "Mary was right."... My vote for non sequitur of the year. I'm sure just when someone is about to reunite with their spouse the first thought is that a meddling neighbor was right about the situation... And WHAT was she right about anyway? I think Ms. Moy just punted with that panel...
Well, it looks like Toby's back on her meds.
Mary's passive-aggressive comment of the day:"There, there, dear. Yes, of course, I'm right. I'm always right. You've finally really caught on! ... Now, turn on the webcam we talked about so that I can observe you and Ian and how you interact!"
Wha...??? Toby, why are you only thought-bubbling that I'm right? You should be proclaiming to the world from the highest mountaintop that MARY WORTH IS ALWAYS RIGHT!!! Have I taught you NOTHING????
Toby's drunk already. I hope we are spared a boudoir scene.
