Storyline

Rhoda is currently unemployed, she being not too clear to Mary and Phyllis whether she quit (she stating differences in opinion with her boss as the reason for quitting) or was fired from her window dressing job at Bloomfield's department store. Regardless, she is in a bit of a funk being unemployed and worries about having no income coming in. But in especially Phyllis' perspective, Rhoda doesn't seem to be working too hard at finding another job, even an unskilled labor job that would at least pay the bills. Rhoda instead seems content to collect unemployment insurance, sit on Mary's couch and watch television all day long. So when Mary and eventually Rhoda learn that there is an associate art director job open at the station, Mary isn't sure why she lies to Rhoda in telling her that the job is already filled, but she does know that she feels guilty about lying to her best friend, one in need of what that job may have provided both monetarily and in self esteem in being employed ...
