Episode cast overview:
Betty Bowerchuck


Ever since his appearance on Chuckles the Clown's television show, Ted has been acting even more strangely and mysteriously than ever. He is stealing the roses Mary always keeps on her desk (about which she knows), he's wearing a fake mustache until a real one grows in, and he's never hanging around the newsroom anymore. The latter two issues are wreaking havoc on Lou's blood pressure. Rhoda thinks she knows the reason for Ted's change in behavior: he's in love. Mary and Murray learn that that is the case when Betty Bowerchuck, Chuckles' assistant and daughter, confirms that she and Ted have been dating since his appearance on the show. But Ted seems to be hiding the fact of the relationship from everyone. When Betty comes crying to Mary about the relationship, Mary invites both Betty and Ted to her apartment for dinner so that she can help Betty by understanding Ted's apprehension about dating her.

Ted Baxter begins a relationship with Betty, the daughter of Chuckles, the Clown (Arlene Golonka). They think it is a secret. Ted, of course, is the complete ass. He is cheap and clueless. Mary keeps getting her roses stolen. Lou is having trouble because when Ted is not around, there is no way to blow off steam. Ted is also growing a mustache which is becoming pretty controversial. They are even doing a study of it. Mary, naturally becomes the arbitrator. Betty is confused by the way she is treated. Ted tells her there is clause in the contract that says two people from the station cannot fall in love. This causes him to hide her when they go out. His real reason for concern is that he is afraid it will spoil his image if he has a clown for a father in law. There are many funny moments along the way.
