Rhoda comes by the newsroom to pick Mary up so that they can drive home together. In general chit-chat in the newsroom, Rhoda mentions the fact that Mary lied about being a college graduate on her application for her newsroom job. Although no one, including Lou, cares as it does not affect her ability to do her job, Mary is upset that Rhoda would even mention it. Rhoda doesn't understand why her stating that fact is such a big deal, while Mary can't believe how insensitive she believes Rhoda is being about the subject. This disagreement places a wedge in their friendship, the first really big wedge ever in the three years they've been best friends. Mary, who needs reassurance that she is not being overly sensitive, is miserable regardless. Rhoda too is miserable. While their mutual friends, such as Georgette, try to do whatever they can to bring the two best friends back together, either Mary or Rhoda will have to make the first move to repair their friendship, which may not be easy ...

A Secret Betrayed
19 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

Rhoda becomes annoyed at Mary when Rhoda comes to the station, and in a teasing way, she betrays that Mary never graduated from college. The hard thing is that Mary had put college graduate on her application. Rhoda doesn't think it's a big deal, but Mary is really put out. They argue and are now at odds. Of course, the issue is who is going to blink first. Of course, Rhoda was wrong in betraying her friend (if Mary had worked at some businesses, that would have been her last day), but Mary was wrong to have lied. It gets funnier when Georgette and Ted get into the act. Georgette's sincerity is really funny. She is so dense but so endearing.
