Catherine Bacon ...
Waitress #2 (as Cathy Bacon)


Mary has just started dating a ski instructor named Paul Van Dillen, who she just met by happenstance. Most of Mary's Minneapolis based friends quickly meet Paul, especially as Mary and Paul's first date is to Ted's birthday party. Although many feel this way, Sue Ann is the most direct in stating that Paul is the most gorgeous hunk of flesh she has ever met. Again, many of Mary's friends feel this way, but Phyllis is the first to say to Mary directly that she believes their relationship seems solely to be based on physical attraction since they seem to have nothing in common otherwise. Lou is more direct in his opposition to Mary and Paul's relationship. Despite being offended specifically by Lou's comments, Mary does begin to wonder if they are correct. Despite contemplating breaking things off with Paul, Paul, as the other person involved, may have some say and his own perspective on the matter. Written by Huggo

Who's Shallow Now
20 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mary begins going out with a handsome ski instructor. He is more than handsome; he stops conversations when he comes into a room. Along the way, she begins to realize that they have nothing in common. All he can talk about is skiing. Soon, everyone is in on the act. Phyllis is totally stunned. Lou warns her that this guy is no good for her. Ted is jealous. Nothing bad ever happens, but Mary starts to really be bored. But he is incredibly charming and it's hard for her. On another subject. In the last episode, Mary was put in jail for not revealing sources. She is out on bail. Technically, she is still under arrest. Will this plot line appear again?
