    Interesting story gap between yesterday’s Silly Look on Gene’s face, and today’s line that Mary Lou now knows about her dad’s intent to sell the restaurant. Us guys cannot keep secrets from the loves of our lives.

    who says Gene told her? Gus is sitting her down to talk about it now…just like he said.

    I’m betting it did not “just come to him today”. there’s schemery afoot…

    how did she figure 25% of the business is her’s? not like she had money to invest in it. sounds like the other daughter is being totally froze out.

    So, Marylou and Gene can buy the property for 1/2 price. Sweet deal, I bet Gus offered Gene very good terms.

    I still wonder, though how they got from the farm complaining about how much work it was, to at the restaurant helping out for the early spring influx of snowbirds. Who is minding the farm?

    @ARLOSDAD: Lie? What lie? What does Gene know that Gus has not told Marylou? We don’t know what Gene told MaryLou, but I suspect it was, “You will have to ask your dad about that.”

    Marylou’s character is turning into a real “witch”! Gene should cut his losses.

    I try.
    Some say I’m very trying.

    If 49 % belongs to her, then he can’t really sell it without her agreement. I’m still not sure how selling the restaurant will make her life easier. They still need to work and have income.

    Many of you are forgetting that Mary Lou grew up in and around that restaurant and to have her father talking of selling it is probably as upsetting as if he were to tell her he’s selling the family farm/house and moving to Boca.

    And as for her being a “witch” – that’s not a fair assumption. Just because she is mad that her father was even thinking of selling and not discussing this with her, doesn’t make her evil.

    And yes, I realize this is a cartoon, before anyone can tell me it is.

    Gene told her of course since he’s not all that interested in this anyway. And he is ruing the decision to ever get involved in all this drama that compared to his own uneventful upbringing looks like a civil war to him. And then when he thinks back on the many placid and willing college girls that he turned down that ultimately could have led to a leisurely lifestyle with a comfortable desk job, indoors all the time in a climate-controlled environment he wonders what came over him. Then Gene thinks of his mother and how obedient she is and why couldn’t he have found a wife more like that?
