If That’s Not Destiny, You Should Take Off

I don’t believe in karma, but I am quite happy to accept a cosmology wherein a lame Summer plot gives way unto a full blown Manic Marty Moon extravaganza.

Panel One: From the beribboned certificates of whatever to Marty’s bouquet of car keys to the simply stunning font, the artwork in panel one lets us know we’re in for something special.

Panel Two: I have purchased many a vehicle from Honda in my lifetime. I think I am on my fourth straight Accord. They are sensible, reliable, nice cars. Having seen Marty’s ride today, however, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to respect myself unless I opt for the dealer installed 24 inch rims and cow catcher front bumper.

Panel Three: I am almost, only almost, starting to feel bad for Marty at this point but Young Richard Nixon Travolta is all I can think about.



  1. Get real, the Honda is a WDIG vehicle that is part of Marty’s financial agreement with the station. Everyone knows that Marty’s personal car is a Gran Turismo.

  2. Rarely does one see Whigrub tip a hand so consistently at the beginning of a story. Here’s what: Holly Wood will play Marty Moonstruck like a ukelele, and he will cooperate in putting out every kind of imagined scandal, sensation, and controversy (countdown to the first eruption stands at four days, in other words Saturday.) But at the end, Holly will– on the way outta town– dump Marty, who will, on a bender, end up in a ditch where Gil will rescue him. Mimi, at last seeing why Gil has shown no interest in Holly, will come back from the next room, and the two will offer us a Christmas toast of hot chocolate while the kids remain in the coal bin. Oh, sorry, forgot– there will also be an obligatory strip in which Gil explains why True must (or cannot) play basketball.

  3. Looks like another appearance by Ricozzi’s, Milford’s only non-Bucket and non-Schultz’s Polynesian Garden restaurant. It is Milford’s nicest restaurant by far. Cloth napkins, $5 soups, and they serve everything in stemware, even the Mr. Pibb.

  4. Did Alan come to Milford with Holly? Maybe they hired a local Milford production team on a freelance basis?
    Why does it seem like this is one of those episodes of the Munsters where a couple of grifters are setting up a con? (Make yourself scarce, Alan! Here comes a pigeon!) Tricky Dick Travolta subs for Jesse White.

  5. This is reminiscent of the Aussie or Kiwi tatoo artist and his girlfriend, Kitten. Bootleg DVDs for everyone!

  6. “He’ll practically be our publicist… because the key to success for a nationally broadcast reality show is an alcoholic sportscaster on a tank-town AM radio station.”

  7. Tricky Dick Travolta? I thought Uncle Joe Biden had dyed his hair black after his appearance on Colbert.

  8. Last year, we had a summer plot about True that made a lot of us impatient until the season opened, when it turned into the best football plot in years. This fall’s plot– local celebrity returns as hustler– does not so far promise to measure up. On the other hand, we have not see poor Marty make a complete ass of himself in some time, so perhaps we’re overdue.
