Storyline

Both Murray and Ted vie for the one spot the news team has for the weekend broadcaster's convention in Chicago. To their dismay, Lou plans to go himself, that is until he learns that Sue Ann is also going, she who wants to spend all their time together. To get out from Sue Ann's lair, Lou, on the spur of the moment, decides to send Mary instead. Although angry with Mary at first since she won't be able to spend that much anticipated time with Lou, Sue Ann instead wants to be joined at the hip with Mary in Chicago, which is the furthest thing from Mary's mind. What Sue Ann also seems to want is to "have a good time" and to be the center of attention among her old Chicago colleagues, or if that doesn't work out, then with any other male conventioneers who are also out to have a good time. What happens that weekend shows why Sue Ann is so desperate to be in the middle of all the fun. Written by Huggo

Mary Tyler Moore had an orgy!!

This was a so-so episode, but the only real funny part was toward the very end where she told the people at the office that she had an orgy when she was on her trip with Sue Ann-which leaves everyone speechless, except Ted-who is fascinated and keeps asking Mary you're kidding right? Since MTM is hot, I was strangely turned on when she said that- haha. In any event, back in 1974 using the word orgy on t.v. was probably pretty controversial and racy-and as much as I had seen the MTM shows over the years, I never remember Mary saying that. I do remember in another MTM episode, Ted mentions having an orgy to Mary with Mary , but with "no whips and midgets"-but I think that was in an episode after this one. Not positive, but I think it was the episode entitled my three husbands or something like that, where Lou, Ted, and Murray each have their own fantasy about what it'd be like to be married to Mary and Ted's fantasy was the funniest, of course, and this is where he makes the orgy comment.
