Storyline

Mary surprisingly befriends Joanne Forbes, the woman who rear ended Mary's car. Joanne would rather reimburse Mary for the repairs directly rather than for Joanne to go through her insurance, to which Mary agrees. Joanne and Mary have a good time together, but most of that time out of coincidence and circumstance just happens to be time that Mary would have spent with Rhoda. An angry Rhoda feels that she is playing second fiddle to Mary's new friend. Beyond Joanne's constant statements of wanting Mary to remind her to pay her for the repairs without ever seeming to bring out her checkbook, Mary, wanting Rhoda and Joanne to get to know each other as friends, learns some information about Joanne that may make her have to choose between the two.

Bigotry Comes to Mary
4 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When a young woman hits Mary's car from behind, they quickly develop a friendship. She is attractive and cultured. Soon they are doing things together, and Rhoda begins to be left out. There are tennis and lunch and other things. Of course, Phyllis encourages this relationship. But as things develop there is something about Rhoda that this woman finds objectionable. This is a more serious episode. The newsroom characters don't have a lot to say. There is one funny bit when Ted tries to come on to Mary's new friend and gets shot down. This is one of those times when you get to know who your real friends are, even if you take them for granted.
