This Week in Milford

Just Who Owes Who?


Hey kids, guess what? I stumbled across some rare footage of Gil and Marty commuting to and from work! Here ’tis:

That would seem to be the dynamic at work here, but I suspect Gil doesn’t see it as so two-sided.  Since he is clearly of the opinion that he singlehandedly pulled Marty’s frijoles from the fire last basketball season, he likely believes he doesn’t owe Marty squat. That said he does recognize the need for Marty in his world, and acknowledged as much to WDIG’s station manager in a previous Kaffeeklatsch.

Still I imagine we’ll soon be treated to some version of “no, you still owe me, and B/Robby would’ve found a way to hang himself by his own rope with or without you.” Then it’s time to see how Mike Fillion self-medicated came out of his depression enough in time for baseball season.

metapost: Since tdrew and I swapped Wednesday and Thursday posts a while back, I’ve missed out on Rock ‘n Roll Thursdays. I want to interject a bit and light a candle for Sara Romweber, who lost her battle with cancer a few days ago. Sara laid down the beats for Mitch Easter’s jangle-pop in Let’s Active, and later formed Snatches of Pink and teamed up with her brother Dexter, previously with Flat Duo Jets, as a duo of their own. The Romweber kids played a part in the formative years of my musical tastes, and Sara’s passing comes as a reminder of my own mortality. So here, then, a musical candle.


  1. Haha….Gil’s quite the wise guy today. I thought that’s what we were here for, but anyhoo, Marty’s got some balls, that’s for sure, especially since Mimi tipped his clueless ass off to what was really going on. So if anyone owes anyone anything, it would be Marty owing Mimi, but I’m sure Gil’s gonna point that out to him sometime within the next week or so….sigh….

  2. I admit I’m having trouble guessing at the next exchange. Marty clearly does not yet get it– he has not progressed from seeing Bobby Hoohah as a threat to his own “prominence” to realizing that the little twit is a hazard to navigation to begin with and should never be allowed within shouting distance of a microphone. And Gil is still bound by the same ethical constraints which prevented him from warning Marty in the first place. But I am fairly sure the exchange will involve some sort of exploding eyeball from Marty and a possible return to the Mike Filion story.

  5. Teenchy, Breakfast at Mr. C’s started the “…best part of waking up is Folger’s in your cup.” I know it. I can just feel it.

    And Richie the C won’t be able to take over for Mr. C until he gets off school in the afternoon. Then he and Potsie can take turns running the register.
    Where’s the Fonz MEANWHILE to help smooth a dirt buggy track drawn between Thorp and Moon? Making out with Peaches somewhere on his motorbike?
