Ye gods, they're in a loop! This is the exact discussion they had 4 months ago that started the whole mess. I've never seen such a level of suicidal desperation in a comic,
Wait! Gaby is 'spiritual' because she wants an expensive wedding?!
In a an attempt at plot development, on Monday Margo runs into a (former?) client in the street, who does not recognize her at first. C'mon Greg, who else wears her hair in a tight black bun? OK, maybe Kalinda Sharma, but she wouldn't be caught dead with this crowd.
Here’s Tuesday’s recap – it was delicious today! In panel one Greg artfully dodges a direct question/compliment-fishing trip from Margo about whether he missed her (hint Margo: guys who pretend not to see you to avoid an awkward social interaction probably didn’t miss you that much. Also, everybody else.)In panel two Greg claims to have heard good things about her agency – my guess is from Skyler, since she seems to know little about the movie business beyond how to get tickets on Fandango - and Margo boasts that she runs the best Agency “In the business.” I can’t wait for tomorrow when she explains her agency is SO good that she just canned one of her two (count ‘em, TWO) staff members on a whim and savagely berates the other in public for delivering negative progress reports. Maybe Margo shouldn’t base her management style on Chef Ramsey, Donald Trump and Leona Helmsley; just sayin’.
This stuff is hilariously disjointed! Is every day a new mistake or something?
Wednesday. Margo asks Greg, rather coyly, if he's going to ask her to dinner. That's pretty presumptuous for just bumping into a guy in the street, especially when he didn't quite remember her at first. She'd have gotten a better response from the Anderson Cooper lookalike who called her"darling"
Thursday: In panel one Margo suggests her favorite diner for their meal because what could be more romantic than gazing at one another over a steaming hot bowl of ‘homogenized dinner’. (I’m guessing she also wants to show Greg off to Thelma/frumpy LuAnn.) In panel two, Margo scolds Greg not to “patronize” her, confusing that word for “defy”. (Her sentence ends with two exclamation points - nature's way of saying 'run, Greg, run!')
FRIDAY.Margo goes psycho witch all over Greg, threatening to destroy him with a snap of her fingers. This begs the question, is Margo truly that powerful in the PR business, or is she as delusional as Sonja Morgan from the real housewives franchise?
Oh, SNAP! Margo is furious! I'm lovin' it!!! But I don't think her attitude is going to coax Greg into going out to dinner with her...In other news, the so-called "blue people" in the background aren't blue today--they're in full color! Does that mean that this is all a dream...or Margo's insanity?I can't wait to find out! Stay tuned for more action and adventure! (You know you love it!)
SATURDAYAs this gripping and fast paced scenario continues, Margo escalates the craziness by calling Greg a creep. A cursory examination of a background car indicates that we have time-warped into 1937.
Huh? Wait...didn't Margo dump Greg after he proposed and gave her a beautiful engagement ring with an emerald in it? Or really, didn't she just not bother to keep in touch with him when he was off in England working on the job that she supposedly helped him to get? Why is Margo upset now that Greg just isn't that into her anymore?I don't understand any of this!
TuesdaySame old, same old. Margo continues to heap vituperation on Greg. Greg continues to take it. They both continue to stand on the same random street corner.
Weren't Margo's old feelings that she didn't want to date him way back when? I'm not gonna ask for a medal for spotting a plot inconsistency in 3G, but to quote DWET, "I don't understand any of this!"
MondayIn a total non sequitur, or welcome break, however you want to see it, LuAnn is back at Martin's hotel. No reason is given for her presence there, and she has an encounter with the bald, cadaverous and very unhealthy looking Mike Downey. Well, instead of a random New York street corner of the 1930s, we have a random New York hotel room of the 1950s. And it sure ain't the Plaza, because Eloise would never put up wth the decor.
Actually, I meant to headline "WEDNESDAY". The sudden change of scene rattled me.
YESSSS!!!! Hallelujah! That "smug creature" Mike Downey has returned, and he's already starting to "push all of Lu Ann's buttons"! I love it! I can't wait to see what will happen next!And, @fauxprof, I respectfully disagree with your opinion of Mike Downey's appearance. I think he's a total hottie! (And I'm betting Lu Ann does, too!)Stay tuned ...
I'm just waiting for the right opportunity to say, "Kiss me, fish lips!"
HUMPDAY: Panel 1: Mr Six/Smug Creature/Mike Downey greets LuAnn at the Hotel (LuAnn is back again?? Just how much time does she SPEND with Margo's dad, anyway?) and asks if he's forgiven for instantly assuming she was a trashy hooker when they first met.Panel 2: MD asks if "Yes" is the only thing LuAnn can say. He thinks he’s being rhetorical but those of us who know LuAnn realize he’s dangerously close to the truth here. Hopefully tomorrow we'll get an answer to the question I know we're all thinking; did LuAnn bring jam this time?Side notes: 1. We've established that DWET's type is 'bald & cadaverous'. 2. Fauxprof is ready to test us with big ten dollar words like "Vituperation". Keep that up and you'll be 'Realprof' soon! (Just kidding - everyone knows only the love of a child can make you real, or whatever worked for Pinocchio...,um, Pinocchio used a solid publication history with an extensive citation list and high student feedback scores to become a real boy, right?)
ThursdayLuAnn says "maybe" to a date with dawn-of-the-dead Mike. Excitement abounds.Side note: barking monkey (and I love that name!) Realprof is my husband. He's got the PhD. I only have a Masters. Yet the students call us both "professor", which doesn't sit well with a colleague or two. Hence the ironic "fauxprof".
Erotic high jinks ensue! I called this way back when Mike Downey first appeared. I can't wait to see how this will develop! (If any plot in this strip can be said to develop...)By the way, the Comics Curmudgeon finds Mike Downey "rakish." Hubba, hubba!
