Mary Worth 2378

It looks like Tommy is beginning to come to terms with the fact that he's fallen into the bottomless pool. Acceptance is the First Step, Tommy. Olive Taylor may have also liked the song Private Idaho, but unlike Olive, Tommy won't be showing up in Mary's dreams. At least not in the same way. I'm not sure even Mary Worth can save Tommy now.

Now we know how Tommy's been passing the time in his darkened room while bliss end out on Vicodin--Watching old movies on his tablet. And he's been pirating Mary's wifi and her Netflix account as well.

Shmoopie said...

Oh no, Tommy. No, no, NO! You see, I happen to actually live in Idaho, so do not claim that this is YOUR Idaho, private, public or any other way. Please choose another state. Perhaps the state of decay?

Attention Karen Moy: You have exceeded your daily allotment of boldface type and now have a negative balance!

For someone who doesn't seem to be very physically active, Tommy is excessively muscular. Maybe Vicodin isn't the only drug he's abusing.

Maggie Moros said...

Speaking as a 31-year-old earthling, I've never heard the expression "own private Idaho," and kind of doubt this is how young men talk, even ones who have picked up colorful language in prison. Agree/disagree?

Living in you own Private Idaho is a line from a 1980 song by the B-52's called Private Idaho.
My Own Private Idaho was also a 1991 movie with Keanu Reeves and River Phoenix.

The song lyrics were nonsensical and the lead in the movie was a gay street hustler so I'm not quite sure where Moy is going with this.

At this point Tommy is nearly as detestable as Dawn Weston. I'm sure we are all experiencing schadenfreude, and will be crippled with disappointment when Mary ultimately swoops in to save the day. The downfall of Ian Cameron would complete the trifecta I've dreamed of.

It's a terrible day when Anonymoos woods insult Mrs. Cameron's sweet wee boy Ian; he's ne'er dain anythin' tae hurt anither sool. He's given his life tae teach college students hoo tae write. Tak' it back, ye dastardly rascal!

Carlye said...

Oh, Meg, you've just been waiting for an excuse to channel your inner Ian...

Carlye said...

OH MY! I just looked up the lyrics to Private Idaho! The references to the blue bottomless pool made my heart skip a beat! Dare we hope for another chance for Mary to jump into the Charterstone pool? Oh, say it'll be so!

Hoo Hoo Hoo Hoo Hoo Hoo Hoo Hoo Hoo
You're living in your own Private Idaho
Living in your own Private Idaho
Underground like a wild potato.
Don't go on the patio.
Beware of the pool,
blue bottomless pool.
It leads you straight
right throught the gate
that opens on the pool.

You're living in your own Private Idaho.
You're living in your own Private Idaho.

Keep off the path, beware of the gate,
watch out for signs that say "hidden driveways".
Don't let the chlorine in your eyes
blind you to the awful surprise
that's waitin' for you at
the bottom of the bottomless blue blue blue pool.

Isn't Dawn a famously good swimmer? Perhaps she'll be the one to rescue Tommy the drip, er, the dripping Tommy.

Ian Cameron, PhD said...

If Tommy was referring to the film, he will soon be working as a gay street hustler to support his Vicodin habit. Now that would make the first legitimately interesting storyline in MW history.

Nance said...

I don't think I've ever heard anyone Tommy's age say he or she 'got sacked.' And I am positive I've never heard ANYONE EVER use the Private Idaho reference. What's next? I suppose Tommy will accuse someone of Gaslighting him and ask Iris to launder his waistcoat.

Dawn Weston's Evil Twin said...

@Nance: Actually, the term "gaslighting" has made a resurgence.

On another note, I don't know whether or not Tommy will inhabit Mary's dreams, but he sure is inhabiting mine! What a hottie! SIGH!
