Betty White on St. Elsewhere
7 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the wonderful episode with Betty White as a guest star playing a military general, John Doe (played magnificently by Oliver Clark) has been calling himself Mary Richards and calling other characters by names of other from the Mary Tyler Moore Shyow. The two separate plot lines seemingly have nothing to do withg eadch other, but the writer couldn't miss the opportunity it presented. Their paths cross, and John Doe addresses Betty White by the name of her character from MTM, and she replies something to the effect of, "I don't know what you're talking about." It is one of the best moments of television from the 1980's.
