Them's about the most romantic words ever uttered. You know what else is romantic? Matching hemorrhoid cushions from Rite Aid. Of course, they should be washed occasionally.
Today's full strip
Payback time! Just don't use the money card.
But for the both of them it still revolves around money. If I'm speaking with my husbear about the emotional side of our relationship, money would NEVER be mentioned. Love is love and money is money and ne'er the twain shall meet unless you're talking to a hooker but that's for another comment. Gosh, I hope my comment isn't too risque. I know this is a family Blog.
At least the fade-to-black in panel two spares us another glimpse of the Camerons' relentlessly gray array of depressing bric-a-brac.
Today's strip simply calls out for more dialogue:Toby: "Same here! I could never crank out enough crappy clay animals to support myself, let alone you also!"______________"Oh Ian!""Toby...why is it so dark? Did you forget to pay the electric bill again?!"
Yeah, what ev. Same here!
It's a good thing Toby is home. Apparently Ian hasn't been able to keep up with the housekeeping. That couch pillow looks like it has a serious case of mildew, likely brought on by Ian's sobbing into it that he could never make enough money to pay back Toby AND keep himself in artful-looking sportcoats.
I see this story line drawing to a comparatively rapid end here, with another problem solved simply by the platitudes uttered by our protagonist. It is too bad that Ms. Moy missed the opportunity to infuse some real-world wisdom into this drama. Just about any caring friend would suggest to a struggling couple that they seek marriage counseling with a trained and licensed professional or clergy member.But then, the charm of this strip is how utterly ridiculous the characters and situations are. So, my fellow MW followers, let's continue to ridicule!
Toby and Ian (hint: Moy and Giella), I have a 'money card' (it's a VISA) that I'd be willing to throw at you if you'd just put this plot line to rest. Right. Now.
Oh Cisco! Oh Pancho!

Stuck on a layover at Denver airport. Never a fun time, but 10 comments on Mary Worth to read. Bliss :-) Thanks for the entertainment!
Yep, there's nothing more romantic, not to mention healthy, than to work up a marital balance sheet. What a shame the lights went out. Now Mary won't be able to use her hidden Nanny-cam to observe further interactions. Unless she's equipped it with infrared, of course.
Is there a chance that Ian's grass sportcoat will melt when touched by Toby's tears? Or will they only make it stronger?
Mary's passive-aggressive comment of the day:"Yes! Everything's proceeding according to plan! ... Buwahahahahahhaha!"Dawn Weston's Evil Twin's comment:In the first panel, Toby's voice is saying, "Same here!", but her facial expression is saying, "Whaaaaa...?"
