Episode complete credited cast:


Lou asks a reluctant Mary to find him a date for a work function. Since she doesn't know of anyone, she agrees to be his date despite the possible office gossip. But when Lou comes to pick up Mary, she can't go since she's feeling ill. Rhoda agrees to fill in for Mary, which doesn't sit well with Lou who thinks that weird Rhoda may not fit in with the corporate crowd. But after all is said and done, he admits he had a really good time with her, so much so he wants to ask her out again. She accepts. That second date leads to a third and more. Although both Lou and Rhoda see what they're doing as just having a few laughs together, they become known as an item. All the talk about them being an item makes Lou wonder if everyone knows something that he himself doesn't yet know about his relationship with Rhoda. Meanwhile, Ted starts coloring his hair, but believes the change is so gradual that no one will notice, which is the opposite of reality. Written by Huggo

The Talk of the Office
19 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lou needs a date for a dinner meeting and asks Mary to come with him. When she gets sick, Rhoda agrees to go along. They have a nice time and begin to do things together. Of course, all the office gossip makes it really uncomfortable. Normally Lou wouldn't care, but this seems to bother him. It's totally clear that nothing is going on, although there are some teasing moments when the audience isn't so sure. Eventually things come to a head and the conclusion is quite nice. There is one ongoing visual joke. Ted starts using a hair product that slowly darkens his hair a little at a time. Every time he enters the studio, his hair is a bit darker. Pretty funny.
