Many references to the Mary Tyler Moore Show are woven into the episode. The episode's title ("Love Is All Around") references the MTM theme song, as does Elka's line "Looks like she made it after all!" when she spots the character played by Moore. As well, Moore's concluding speech about how she and her friends spent their Saturday nights has many parallels with the MTM series' achievements in their Saturday night timeslot, and the episode concludes with a meowing kitten that is very reminiscent of the one in the MTM logo that concluded every episode of the Mary Tyler Moore Show.

Joy Scroggs: Hey, everybody. Our group birthday is coming up, and I know *exactly* who I want to be fixed up with. I met a man this year who touched me deeply.
Elka Ostrovsky: That could be half of Cleveland.
Joy Scroggs: It's our poetry professor, Robin York. He's so spiritual and sensitive.
Melanie Moretti: Well, I want that guy that we met at the PetSmart Charities adoption thing; his name is Rex. Or maybe his dog's name is Rex.

Pity Asner, MacLeod and even Amos Couldn't Come On Board
8 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

If for no other reason than because the show was so limited in time (sitcoms today barely run 20 minutes without commercials) and clearly any audience would love to see the 5 for the entire program.

Asner and MacLeod could have easily appeared as one of the three ladies' dates (George Hamilton did show up as one of them), but then that would have been no fun not seeing them out with the 5.

Leachman was allowed a little leeway as Phyllis was so tightly wound.

Since White and Engels are show regulars, this left any sort of 'plot' up to Moore and Harper as bitter rivals from the old bowling team days and so we could see them interact again as well.

The most dominant factor would have been Phyllis and Rhoda's feud, but that would have shut Mary out completely, so thankfully the show didn't focus on doing that again.

Essentially, Mary and Rhoda were where it all began.

There are endless references to the old show, with Mary having the smile and she made it after all.
