Oh...nope, wait, she didn't understand at all. And I'm not referring to the job opportunity. Mary can't even handle taking the conversation into a different room.

Just look at their daughter, eyes glued to the blank screen, head adrift in a pool of her own really boring adventures.
Meanwhile, in Panel 3...fuck, you know what? No.
