Ed Sprinkle
Old Man
Officer Larry Tully


Mary arrives home to find that her apartment has been burglarized, with her television, stereo and all her clothes gone. The investigating police officers, Tully and Jackson, don't seem to see eye to eye on how to handle the investigation or the questioning. Officer Tully, who seems interested in Mary, is currently working toward becoming a detective. Just before they leave, Officer Tully makes Mary even more concerned about the same burglars coming back again. The day that Mary settles her insurance claim for a fraction of what she lost, she arrives home devastated to find that she has been burgled again, this time they taking everything except a lamp, her sofa and her beloved "M". Mary doesn't know if she'll ever feel safe again as long as the burglars are out on the loose, but with a little help from Phyllis - very little help - Officers Tully and Jackson may actually be able to nab the burglars.

It's a Burglary, Not a Robbery
1 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This one is so much fun. Mary comes back to her apartment and realizes that she has been burglarized. Rhoda makes a frantic call to the police, saying that they are being robbed and the guy has a gun. Two of Minneapolis's finest show up. Well, they're not exactly the finest, but once again, one of them gets all caught up in Mary's beauty. He starts to play the tough detective and tries to reassure her. He is also scared to death of her. Anyway, there is wonderful byplay between the characters, especially Phyllis and Rhoda. Phyllis tries to be the staunch liberal, but she is not good at it. When Mary is robbed again the next day, things ramp up. One of the funniest episode. Very recognizable is Vic Tayback, Mel from the show "Alice." See this one if you can.
