"Mary Tyler Moore" The Slaughter Affair (TV Episode 1972) - Plot Summary Poster

Plot Summary

  • A major on-air gaffe, which is assumed to be Ted's fault and which in Lou's mind is grounds for firing, ends up being because of a typo by Murray. Beyond this mistake, Mary has noticed that Murray has not been doing his job well the last few weeks and seems always to be tired. Murray confesses to her that his fatigue is due to him moonlighting as a writing teacher in night school to earn enough money for a down payment for a new car for Marie as a tenth wedding anniversary present. Mary catches Murray in a lie about the job when Rhoda, who ends up being a customer of his, sees his real second job as a cabbie. What's worse is that Marie also catches him in this lie, she believing that his nights away from home are because he's having an affair... with Mary. Mary, in part to clear her good name, tries to figure out how she can help Murray both with his situation at the newsroom and at home with Marie.
