A heartbroken Georgette catches Ted making out with another woman in his dressing room. Georgette initially believes the lie Ted tells her about the supposedly innocent reason why they were in the position they were in, but once Georgette figures out it's a lie, she decides to leave Ted. She has to figure out how to get what little self-esteem she had back. She initially believes she needs to explore the wild side of life, which she's never done. But when she decides that being wild is not in her basic nature, she decides to go totally in the opposite direction: she's going to become a nun. With Mary and Rhoda's help and the advice of a Catholic nun, Georgette comes to some conclusions about her future. Meanwhile, Ted too is heartbroken over his and Georgette's split. He has to figure out how to get her back, or how to move on with life without her. Written by Huggo

A Great "Ted" Show
17 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Georgette comes to the office to see if Ted wants to go to lunch and finds him in the arms of another woman. Mary finds her crying and tries to console her. Once Ted comes out he gives her quite the story: The woman was a vacuum cleaner salesperson and she was severely shocked by her equipment. He was forced to give her mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. But Georgette talks to the woman in the elevator and the woman told her that her vacuum cleaner was in her closet at home. Georgette figures it's time for a change. First she decides to be her own woman. When that doesn't work, she decides to become a nun. Mary wants to make sure that she isn't being too impulsive and invites the nun who is overseeing Georgettes application to come to her apartment for a meeting. Rhoda lets her in because Mary is running late. Who should show up first, but Ted, who starts putting moves on the Sister. It's all really hilarious with a very satisfying conclusion. Ted, who is about as clueless and jerky as can be, is a great character and we can't help but love him.
