Wait. I thought dinner was last night. Maybe Dr. Ned has actually been hovering over Dawn for literally four days.
"I'll wear this stethoscope to the restaurant so we get a better table!"
@KitKat: Ha haaaaaa!Looks like Dawn had her hair cut by a gardener with cataracts and a dull grass clipper.-- Scottie McW.
Today's Boldface Haiku is titled "Hungry Like The Wolf".Restaurant?Yes, first time! Enjoyed!New place. Free?(!)
Oh, the return of my favorite thought dialogue bubble: "!". It says so much with so little. Or so little with so little.
I hope they talk more about how Dawn handled that grumpy patient who was unhappy with the cost of his medication. I think Dawn/Dr. Ned and Medical Practice may be about to fix healthcare. We should be paying attention!
I am enjoying all the enjoyment in this strip. Meanwhile, Dr. Ned's last patient is slowly bleeding out in the examination room.
When Dr. Ned takes Dawn to the Bum Boat, we'll know things are getting serious. He can propose (a'la Dr. Jeff), and she can brush him off with an "ah, well" (a'la Mary).Until then, the'll need to settle for dinner at the restaurant where Jared busses tables, holding the second job because he can't get overtime at Medical Group.
Maybe they'll go to Cafe and run into Harlan
Tuesday: "Oh Wow! I'm free for dinner for the rest of my life!"I like the assumption that 'dinner tonight' = "I must be getting asked to work late again." Note that Dr. Ned did nothing to discourage that assumption. Maybe we could get a panel set up like Edward Hopper's Nighthawks with Dr Ned and Dawn at one end of the counter and Jared in the background peeking through the window.
Maybe Dawn is angling for some overtiume pay....We already know she thinks her job is a grindstone.
What's with the tweed background in panel 2? And is Dawn really short or is Dr. Ned Smarmy wearing elevator shoes?
