"Mary Tyler Moore" It's Whether You Win or Lose (TV Episode 1972) - Plot Summary Poster

Plot Summary

  • A blizzard is sweeping through Minneapolis, which means that Lou can't take his trip to sunny, warm Las Vegas. As it was supposed to be a boys' gambling weekend away, Lou is talked instead into a gathering of boys at the station to play poker. Murray initially doesn't want to play, but decides at the last minute to join when he learns that one of the players is novice Ted, whose money is too enticing to pass up. Mary later finds out from Marie that Murray is a compulsive gambler who can't stop once he starts. So Mary has to go down to the station to stop Murray from playing without divulging the reason why to any of the other players. Murray's reemerging gambling compulsion and the money involved by association becomes just as big an issue for Mary.
