Oh, who is that gallant gentleman? I sure hope it is Jeff or he's going to find himself arrested pretty quickly.
If Jeff is picking up Mary, are they driving home in separate cars? Because Mary definitely parked at the airport last October.
Today's full strip
Actually, Jeff just flew in, himself. He spent the last three months at Peace Village, where he met a lovely, compassionate doctor. He just wants to catch a ride back to Santa Royale so he can make arrangements to sell his home and boat and get back to his new fiancée.
Maybe Mary gave Jeff permission to use her car ("keep the tank full, and don't drive above 45 mph"), although @fauxprof's suggestion is very appealing.I thought Mary had only one bag, which she carried onto the plane, so why is she at the baggage claim? Stealing luggage?Judging by the bag with stickers that read "Paris," Milan," and "I [heart] NYC," Mr. G. hasn't flown or even been in an airport in 40+ years.
Mary might have rented a car to drive to the airport. I'd file a complaint with the airline and the FAA about all ants in the terminal.
Luggage Clam... ah, I knew there was something that needed to be said about the drawing of the carousel... good stuff!
Why is Jeff early? Mary's plane landed on time, he knew what time to get there, based on the arrival time of the flight. Unless Mary wanted 30 minutes to herself to slam back a few boilermakers in the airport bar before she had to face Jeff.
So Mary must be made of $$ if she can afford to check a bag...
Judging from the spatial relationships in the drawing, the gallant stranger must be at least ten feet tall since he appears to be about three feet behind Mary yet is easily able to grasp her suitcase with his arm not even fully extended. Plus he has already yanked the suitcase over her crushed hand and will surely slam it into her torso as he retrieves it. What a big lovable oaf!
Obtuse, I was hoping someone would remark on this. Additionally, take a look at Panel 2; I still have no clue how Jeff's wrist is allowing him to hold on to the suitcase in that orientation.
If Stretch Armstrong doesn't pull the suitcase towards himself and crush Mary's hip, he'll have to swing it wide to the right and bust the blonde with the plaid suitcase in the chops.
Phew! Catastrophe averted! When I saw panel 1—a strange man creeping up behind Mary, grabbing for her luggage, and saying, “Let me help you with that, dear!”—I was sure that Mary was in for another mugging! Not to mention the insulting “dear” honorific! But, luckily, it was just Dr. Jeff Cory, the Person of Mary’s interest!Tomorrow, it’ll be ... SMOOCH!!!
Dang, I was hoping Thievy Thievington was about to steal Mary's bag and make a run for it, which would mean at least a month's worth of adventures in the airport terminal. Maybe Bruce Willis would show up. Or Robert Stack attacking Hari Krishnas.
