In the first season installment "Divorce Isn't Everything", Mary mentions that she can't speak French but can speak Spanish. Later in the series, while at a Mexican restaurant, she indicates that she can't read the menu because she took French in college. See more »
I always enjoyed The Mary Tyler Moore Show. The characters were all funny, especially the goofy fights between Ted Baxter and Murray Slaughter. Lou Grant ("I hate spunk!") was always good for a laugh, especially the episode where he ended up drunk on Mary's doorstep!
Of course, the real two stars of the series were Mary Tyler Moore (duh) as Mary Richards and Valerie Harper as her best friend, Rhoda Morgenstern. My all-time favorite episode is the second one, where the two host a small gathering at Mary's apartment for two potential suitors, and everything goes wrong!
A true classic, and it earned every Emmy it got.
