Storyline

Mary is appalled with everyone's reaction to the death of their station co-workers Chuckles the Clown is killed. He was the Grand Marshall at a circus parade but having appeared as one of his TV characters, in the form of a peanut, is shelled by a rogue elephant. Murray in particular simply can't stop making jokes about it all and Mary thinks it's all inappropriate, despite Lou's claim that it's just a way of dealing with death. They all attend the memorial service but it's Mary who has trouble remaining solemn. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Ted Baxter: Nothing can spoil my day now that I'm going to be Grand Marshal of the circus parade.
Lou Grant: Forget it, Ted, you aren't.
Ted Baxter: What?
Lou Grant: I said, forget it. My anchorman isn't marching down the street with a chimp. It tends to give him an undignified image.
Ted Baxter: Oh, Lou... it won't give me an undignified image!
Lou Grant: I was talking about the chimp.
