    • Murray: I'm Murray Slaughter. I've enjoyed your writing.
      Karl Heller: Thank you, thank you. I'd rather you hadn't. What we enjoy, we forget. What irritates, stays with us.
      Murray: That reminds me. Do you know Ted Baxter?

    • Karl Heller: It is said people get the culture they deserve. For the nights to come, we shall try to find out exactly why no first-rate artist has ever been created in this big, but intellectually famished, arid and sterile city.
      Ted: This is Ted Baxter, saying goodnight from ... Phoenix, Arizona.

    • Sue Ann: That is the cruelest man I have ever seen! I'm in love!

    Notes (2)

    • This episode was filmed on November 05, 1976.

    • Ted shoves a pie into Karl Heller's face, making Eric Braeden the only actor ever to be the recipient of the old "pie in the face" gag on The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
