A depressed Ted asks Mary for some help. Ted and Georgette have been trying to have a baby for some time, but it just doesn't seem to be happening for them. Ted wants Georgette to go see a doctor to see if there is any medical issue preventing them from having a child, which Georgette refuses to do. After Mary speaks to Georgette about the issue, both Georgette and Ted agree to go see their respective doctors to get checked. Regardless, one other option that Georgette suggests, and that Mary hopes they will consider but doesn't want to meddle by giving her opinion, is adoption. But the Baxters may throw both the adoption process and Mother Nature for a bit of a loop. Written by Huggo

Those Little Baby Makers
1 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

Ted talks to Mary because he and Georgette have been trying to get pregnant for a long time. He wants her to talk to Georgette, as if that would do any good. Anyway, she get them to see doctors and Georgette is OK but Ted is possibly incapable of producing a child. So adoption becomes the alternative. The secondary story has to do with Lou Grant having agreed to take possession of a guy's St. Bernard. Of course, he was loaded when he agreed and the dog is driving him crazy. This is a cute episode with some great stuff involving Ted. It's especially good when a woman from the adoption agency comes to check out Ted and Georgette.
