This Week in Milford

Urban Thorp

Today it’s all flashback as Luke Martinez y Hernnandez spins his tale for Marty’s “podcast,” painting Gil as the Valley’s version of Urban Meyer.

To hear old Hairy Hand Luke tell it, he was quietly minding his own business, admiring his reflection in the carefully polished bar top and nursing his glass of 2% milk while he waited for Bethany the barkeep to pour him another. But where was Bethany? Leaping across the bar to get up in Gil’s grill – and Gil didn’t turn away! (The artwork doesn’t quite match the dialog, Chief.)

There’s a grain of truth in observing that Bethany might have a thing for Gil, but it wouldn’t have been easy for Knuckles there to pick up on it as much as he was running his mouth. If Marty lets this hit the podosphere, this might boil down to a he-said, she-said, with Gil flying Bethany in to cast the tiebreaker.

Marty sounds downright incredulous in response – which does not sound like Marty Moon at all! Kinda reinforces the notion that Gil and Marty have a Ralph and Sam-style working relationship. Looking forward to seeing Gil leave his doghouse for a round of Johnnie Walkers with Marty at Barney’s before this arc is through.

Special Guest Cameo: The role of Gil in P3 is being played by Bob Crane.


  1. You would think Martinez had a butter knife in his hand with Gil’s “ HEY!!” or “Don’t you dare!” reaction in P3. Marty defending Gil? What’s this tank town coming to?

  2. So, does coach fuckin’ hair shirt really think that this bullshit story isn’t going to be challenged and disproven sometime in the near future? This guy is just a narcissistic prick. I gotta’ think that every coach in the conference can’t wait to play against his teams just for the chance to humiliate him. Since the new writer is making Gil into some kind of bad-ass, maybe Gil should find whatever bar this tool hangs out at and go give him an ass whippin’, like Billy Batts got:

  3. I have to admit that I do like how Martinez y Hernnandez leads with an indignant “trying to get a drink”. That’s going to play well with Marty for sure.

  4. Great Bob Crane reference, Teenchy!!!!!!!!!

    Yeah, I can see this now, the story getting reduced to Colonel Hogan getting into a run-in with Colonel Klink over running around on one of Klink’s spies. Half an hour on a Hogan’s Heroes episode being the equivalent to the time from now to football, we’ll see how much potential is wasted in that duration. Any odds?

  5. The Lame-o Trio that Lucha was showing off for will not be pleased to be written out of the story.
