Mary Worth 2652

I love crossover characters in the comics! In panel 1, Li'l Orphan Grandma; and in panel 2, I'm not sure who that is, but he appears to be some sort of Dick Tracy villain.

LOL Wanders you made me almost spit my ice tea on the computer.

One of the SeattlePi readers suggested that Little Orphan grandma was related to the father in Family Circus. I'll go with that one too.

I think Dr. McDreamy could be a Doctor Jekyll/Mr. Hyde character. He's currently in his "Mr. Hyde" phase.

Today's Boldface Haiku is titled "Methinks She Doth Protest Too Much".

Insurance.
Good night!
Working late, plans.
No...nothing. Don't.


Poor Dawn. I guess Medical Group also expects her to replace the toner in its huge copy machines, too, since it hasn't heard of email, fax, or the Internet for directly contacting its patients' insurance providers.

Ned moves in for the kill.

So, is Dr. Ned (not to be confused with Mr. Ed, that long jaw notwithstanding) finally Dawn's Mr. Right? Oh, where's the drama in that? He needs to be unavailable, a total cad, or otherwise Worth meddle-worthy. Let's not forget the evident age difference. If Dawn is still perpetually nineteen, and Ned is a fully qualified MD (unless he's Doogie Howser) there could be a 10-year gap.

Will Dawn get locked in the bathroom, too? (By her own doing, of course)

Wanders: My first thought about the client in P1 was Mole Man from the current Spider-Man story.

You know, we've all had fun with the bold dialog (especially Nance and her brilliant haiku titles) but today's dialog seems especially insane if you read it out loud and strongly emphasize the bolded words. Try it and see. And wouldn't it be interesting to see what Dawn's got written on those Post-it notes? No, actually I guess it wouldn't be.

The way the right side of his (her?) face is dropping off, the character in panel 2 could be Two Face visiting from Gotham.

Does insurance cover eye replacement surgery?

Nothing wrong with a 9-1/2 year gap @fauxprof (like between me and my wife for example). A 10 year gap would be fully creepy though.

Li'l Orphan Grandma is terrifying.
The next time I need to give a paper to someone I am going to hold it just like Dawn, using my entire hand. Which just gave me a brilliant idea - The Living A Day Mary Worth-Style Project. I will hold things awkwardly, dress head to toe in a solitary color or wear crazy patterns, and say things in weirdly accented sentences that nobody can figure out.I wonder how long I could keep it up?

If Dr. Ned is making moves on Dawn, fasten your seat belts for another inappropriate relationship. First professor and student, now boss and worker. On second thought, instead of fastening your seat belt, take Pepto-Bismol for your lurching stomach.

I'd love to see panel 1 patient driving in the Charterstone lot as Ian Cameron backs up his car.

Dr. Ned looks like Smilin' Jack's old friend Downwind Jackson. (Not that anyone on this board is old enough to remember him!)

This plot is truly sad from a number of angles. Once again, Dawn's entire plot tension will revolve around "will she get the guy or won't she...sigh..." Why not for once depict Dawn in a capable, intelligent and leading character role? For example, discovering an inaccuracy in patient records, a doctor's carelessness in writing a prescription that could endanger health and safety, etc. What bothers me a bit more is that females in this strip have of late been portrayed as clueless nags, calculating sneaks or helpless, man-less waifs. As they say on the sports commentary channels, "C'mon, man....!!) Sorry, stepping off soap box now...
