(This was a tough one for me!  No new clue words, but I struggled mightily with “biopsy”.  A lot less with “goalie”, but I thought it and “tomato” and “undone” were all jumbled really well.  The answer letter layout was superb!  I struggled getting the answer.  My problem stemmed from the fact that I believed that the second word was moment, instead of memory.  Obviously I couldn’t do anything – legitimate – with GLARISY.  The closest I could get with those letters was SAYGIRL.  Clearly, SAYGIRL MOMENT was a little too slangy to be a legitimate answer.  Although, who knows how Jeff talks to the Missus???  Finally, I decided I needed to take a re-look at the second word, and I came up with memory, and then lasting fell into place.  Great cartoon, too.  I’d like to think this was based on true events, but I don’t know.  I haven’t heard from Jeff in a while.  Either way, nice job, guys!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
