Storyline

Lou is going into the hospital for minor surgery - to have some war shrapnel removed - which he doesn't want anyone to know about, since he doesn't want anyone to make a fuss. But Mary, Murray and Ted do eventually find out. During Lou's hospitalization, he appoints Mary to be in charge. This appointment eventually places a strain on the friendship between Mary and Murray as Mary, in her new responsibility, starts to edit his copy. While Mary and Murray's friendship disintegrates, Ted and Lou becomes best friends as Ted seems to be a caring, thoughtful person in helping Lou through his hospital stay. Their new friendship extends to their professional relationship once Lou returns to work, he who doesn't want everyone to always blame Ted for all the on-air mistakes. Are both Mary and Murray, and Lou and Ted's new relationships permanent? Written by Huggo
