To add a different look to what he believes are their stagnant newscasts, Lou wants to hire a woman to do some on-air editorials and human interest stories. Lou's description of the appropriate person is someone just like Mary... but not Mary. Ted is against the idea if only because he feels that that person will not only be taking away his air time, but also his money. So if he can't do it, Ted wants Georgette to do it. Georgette doesn't really want to do it, but suggests to Mary what Mary is already thinking: that Mary is more like "just like Mary" than anyone else. In other words, Mary wants the job. Lou allows Mary to audition for the job but is afraid that he will hurt her feelings if she doesn't end up getting the job, which he doesn't think she will. Mary has some other in-station competition, namely Sue Ann. After the auditions, the process of telling Mary the outcome doesn't go quite the way that Lou was expecting or hoping. Written by
