Ted walks into the newsroom in a testy mood. Mary later learns from Georgette that the reason for Ted's foul mood is that she's threatened to leave him. It's not that she doesn't love him, but she feels he doesn't love her anymore. Ted has resorted to sleeping on the couch and their sex life is non-existent. Ted doesn't know why he is feeling the way he is, refuses to talk about it or to acknowledge it as a problem. Mary doesn't know what to say to Georgette, but feels Ted needs professional medical help, and suggests a psychiatrist that she knows. So Georgette gives Ted an ultimatum: go see the psychiatrist, or else she'll leave him. Ted agrees but feels embarrassed by having to go to see such a doctor, and will only go if Lou goes with him, not for moral support, but to feign to the world that Lou is the one with an issue. Ultimately, will the psychiatrist be able to help Ted and in turn Georgette with their marital issue? Meanwhile, they've decided in the newsroom to do a story on ... Written by Huggo

Ted Is Having Troubles
27 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

Ted is having trouble in the bedroom and Georgette is threatening to leave him if he doesn't get help. There are several funny scenes in this episode. One involves Murray going on assignment to buy as many weapons as he can on the street. Su Ann has a priceless line when he walks into the newsroom, looking l an arsenal. The second is Ted's visit to the psychiatrist. The first few questions the guy asks him lead to some hilarious conclusions. The third is a visit by Lou and Mary after Ted's third trip to the psychiatrist. Ted says, "After three visits he told me he never wanted to see me again." Funny stuff.
