Episode cast overview:
Robert Casper ...


Despite it being a good professional move, Mary is unbelieving that Rhoda has accepted a job at Bloomingdale's in New York City. Mary doesn't believe that Rhoda would give up her Minneapolis life just for a job. Even as Rhoda prepares for the move including packing and letting Phyllis show her apartment (including to one person who Mary does not relish thinking about as a potential neighbor), Mary doesn't believe it's going to happen and that Rhoda will eventually change her mind. But as Mary takes Rhoda on a bon voyage dinner the day before she is scheduled to leave, Mary comes to the true realization that Rhoda may actually be leaving. So when Rhoda makes an announcement mid dinner, Mary has to figure out what to do about what will be happening at her apartment later that evening. Meanwhile, Ted thinks he's met a woman who likes him and who he likes in return. He therefore gets quite a surprise at the end of their meeting. Written by Huggo

The First Appearance of Georgette
8 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Rhoda returns from New York and tells Mary that she has taken a job there. The whole episode revolves around her leaving, from getting rid of her apartment to saying goodbye to everyone. There are a couple of precious scenes in the newsroom. One of the highlights is the arrival of the swinging Jack Riley, who has designs on Rhoda's apartment. It's not a great episode but there is some sadness and some contrition. Ted is his usual cheapskate self. Mary has to also lie to Riley or she could be in for some terrible times in the future. The one thing that will manifest itself in the future is the arrival of Georgia Engel as Georgette with whom Ted is attracted.
