Episode complete credited cast:
Georgette Franklin
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

[Murray has returned to the newsroom, drunk]
Lou Grant: What have you been drinking?
Murray Slaughter: Pouilly-Fuissé.
Lou Grant: [nods] Too bad.
Mary Richards: What do you... mean? What? Why?
Lou Grant: I've been a newsman for thirty years. I've sobered up guys who were drunk on everything from scotch to aftershave lotion. But never once in my life have I had to sober up anyone who was drunk on Pouilly-Fuissé. I don't know what to do! I don't know whether to give him black coffee or cheese!

Murray the Romantic
20 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

Murray gets less screen time than the other regulars, so in this one, he featured. He goes to a party at Mary's. His wife never seems to attend anything (they would have to pay her). While there, a recently divorced friend of Ted and Georgette's strikes up a conversation with Murray. They hit it off and he takes her home. The thing is that he doesn't tell her he is married. He is having a bit of a midlife crisis, and she is feeding his ego. Ted gives him this speech about the Minnesota Vikings that is absolutely hilarious. It involves how much fun it is when they play the Packers, but they don't want to play just the Packers. There's the Bears, the Chiefs, the Oilers.
