We were promised confrontation! We were promised retaliation! We were promised VENGENCE! Instead we get -- well, I don't know what this is. But I don't like it. I expect The Batman, and instead I get Sensitive New Age Ian.

This is why H.R. is so unnecessary. Just let angry employees retaliate against each other. It makes things so much simpler.

Please let it be Toby with a pair of binoculars! "I see you, Helen Moss, lusting after the past! I'm reporting you to school management."

Helen is pausing again. This is going to be a good week, with plenty of pausing and plot redundancies. Hopefully there are lots of photos of Ian in that yearbook.

For an artist, Toby isn't that good at describing people. A twenty-year age range, the vaguest description of height... but it's enough for Ian. That steel blue gaze can only mean one thing: Vengence is mine, saith the Scott.

"This is the real thing, Ian. Not like when you thought Jannie was actually attracted to you. Ha ha ha ha ha!"

"And I remember, Ian, how resentful of me you were because I didn't appreciate you the way Jannie did, and how you almost ended our marriage over it. Not that I haven't forigiven you, Ian. Of course I've fogiven you... But I never forget."

The marriage is saved. The black armbands are off. Toby thinks, "Huh, I did not expect him to believe me. Mary said he would, but I reviewed past interactions and was sure he'd think me a brazen woman."

I'm starting to think that Toby might be a little intimidated by her brilliant and accomplished husband, but I'm not 100 percent sure yet. Maybe by the end of the week, I'll have this figured out.

Toby must have done something really, really bad to likely lose her job. Maybe she made this public sculpture in Huntsville, Alabama:

This is why Women's Liberation has failed. The modern woman's never-ending quest to appear strong prevents her from confiding in her husband, who is always more than happy and able to solve all her problems. The things we learn from Mary Worth.

Reacting badly is sort of Ian's bailiwick. You have no story if he suddenly handles things maturely.

"Well, you see, Mary -- Wait, is that a drawing of Cal on your end table??"

During Mary's time off between meddles, she has clearly been expanding her baking repertoire. Soon, she'll have Toby plumped up, and Cal will lose all hormonic drives and urges.

For you, it was a bad night. But for the rest of us, it was one heck of a week. Or was it a month?

Thank you, Ian, for shoving Toby out of bed. The excruciating dream is over. I hope Toby has learned her lesson about avoiding the very appearance of evil. Especially when there are binoculars involved.

I'm uncomfortable with the level of sexuality in the strip today. Also, judging by Cal's eye dilations, the use of drugs. We are definitely crossing into PG-13 territory here.

One thing I've alwasy admired about the Camerons is what good communicators they are. Ian has communicated very clearly that Toby is not to disturb him with her women's issues, especially while he's sleeping.

I'm really starting to think Toby might be worried about something. I mean, I don't want to sound arrogant or anything, but I've known Toby since I was her age, and I think I'm starting to read her pretty well.

I know Toby has had trouble falling asleep, but her memory of Helen has really softened since yesterday's red-faced floating head from hell. I'm sure she'll be dreaming sweet dreams in no time.

I don't know... does this count as a floating head, because if it does, it is perhaps the best floating head of all time!!

Oh, Toby, it's gonna' be all right. Just keep remembering what Cal said, "Ignore your problems. Focus on the good stuff, like Frisbee golf, and you'll feel fine."

Oh, he will. He will. Of course he will. Why would he ever trust his own wife, when he can trust Helen Moss instead?
