Manic Monday Triple Overtime--How To Recognize Your Own Wife?!?

Sigh...this one is going to get me into so much trouble...

Socialite Molly Bennett is very, very sad:

SPOILER ALERT for you degenerate, cynical modern folk: no, he wasn't having an affair. He would just rather be a workaholic than spend time with his wife.

Well, Joan Williams--Flash's girlfriend--learns of this tragedy, and wishes that she could be Betty Buttinski and solve this marital crisis!

In one of life's inexplicable coincidences, Joan does run into Mrs. Bennett--right out side the beauty parlor!

Yes, a day at the beauty parlor can solve any problem between a wife and husband!!

Molly gets all dolled up, but that just gets her kidnapped by thugs looking for a big ransom from her husband!!

They haul her down to the port, where her husband is about to get on a slow boat to South Ameica, and...

Yes, seriously. One day at the beauty parlor, and he can't even recognize her!!

Rather than be insulted by such a ridiculous bit of churlishness, Molly chooses to see the glass half-full:

Oh, poor Molly...

But when she speaks...

So, they stop to make goo goo eyes at each other while the Flash mops up gun-wielding thugs.

And all's well that ends well!!

Moral: Ladies, if you want to keep your husband interested, make yourself purty. If he's not home a lot--it's YOUR fault!!

I'm horrified by the sexism... but oh... Jay is still my favorite Flash.
