The Mary Tyler Moore Show 3.23
- The comedy highlight here is undoubtedly the part where Lou has to carry Mary around the office, after she falls and sprains her foot. Several ingenious little touches (chair, telephone, door) add to the laughter. Wonderful.
- This story takes a long time to get going. It all seems really random for the first few scenes until we figure it out: Mary is having a run of bad luck!
The second half is definitely funnier, as the catastrophes add up.
- Mary’s speech at the end is another comedy highlight. Mary Tyler Moore doesn’t get enough of this kind of business to do. She excels.
