  • Trivia

    • "Put on a Happy Face" is the only episode of the series that did not end with the traditional "meow" of the orange MTM tabby Mimsey. Instead, Moore herself appeared in the circular MTM logo doing her best Porky Pig impersonation: "Th-Th-Th-That's all folks!"

  • Quotes

    • Rhoda: (seeing Mary's groceries strewn all over the floor) What's going on in here? It looks like somebody mobbed Betty Crocker.

    • Mary: (looking for something to wear at Rhoda's apartment) What about this?
      Rhoda: That's some fun, fur thing I bought. I bought it on sale and never wore it. It sort of makes me look like a cross between Raquel Welch and Beowulf.

    • Ted: Hi Mary! Your hair looks all bumpy.

    • Mary: Rhoda, did you ever have one of those days?
      Rhoda: Yeah, mostly!

    • (Mary's date for the Teddy Awards cancels on her at the last minute.)
      Mary: What am I going to do?
      Rhoda: Have some candy.
      Mary: Rhoda, chocolate solves nothing.
      Rhoda: No, no. Cottage cheese solves nothing. Chocolate can do it all.
