Episode complete credited cast:
Judith Chandler


Mary is hosting a party to celebrate her 1,000th show. Ted and Georgette bring along their friend, Judith Chandler, if only because she is a recent divorcée and Georgette thought it would be nice to get her out to meet people, specifically single men, and most specifically single Lou. Her tact changes when Georgette finds out Lou is seeing Charlene, which leads to Georgette leaving Judith in Murray's company while she scopes out the party for eligible men. The next day, Ted, based on the fact that they spent all night talking to each other, believes that something happened between Murray and Judith, something that Murray flatly denies. But Murray implies that he wishes something will happen between the two of them. An associated issue is that Murray has not told Judith that he's married. He seems to want someone, anyone, to tell him that having an affair is all right. Perhaps Murray will just have to find out on his own if he feels it's all right. Written by Huggo
