Ted is dropping hints to Mary and Murray that he is taking a trip to New York, about which they don't really care. When Mary eventually does ask Ted about the trip, he proudly announces that he has been asked to audition for a new game show. In their general well wishes, Mary, Murray and Lou, who don't give it much thought, are certain it will not amount to anything. Georgette, on the other hand, is secretly afraid of Ted getting the job, and forgetting his Minneapolis life, including her. But after the on-camera audition, complete with contestants and a live studio audience, Ted doesn't hear from the producers for weeks, which Mary tries to break gently to him that it probably means he didn't get the job. When Ted eventually hears from the producers, he is ecstatic that he is offered the position. As Lou and Mary prepare for Ted's departure, which primarily focuses on finding his replacement, they both can't help but lament his departure. Lou and Mary will have to decide if Ted means...
