Storyline

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

Time, distance, and new feelings
29 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If Lou never had any secret feelings for Rhoda until this episode, why was Rhoda allowed in the newsroom so often?

This was VH's last episode of TMTMS before moving on to RHODA. How much time elapsed between the events of this episode and Rhoda's return to New York? If Rhoda was going to leave for New York immediately, why did she make a date to meet Lou secretly at a hockey game? I didn't know it before rediscovering the delightful "Mary and Rhoda: Love and Laughs" article in TIME, but the hockey date was a sweet allusion to Valerie's father's former profession.

This was perhaps an introduction to the new, sentimental Rhoda of the early episodes of her own series--the romantic bud that died and later fully flowered in Valerie Hogan, however different the two characters were otherwise.
