    Treva Silverman pretty much proved her talent for sitcom writing with this episode. She tackled a very complicated area of self-esteem here and the actors handle it with great care and generosity. Mary and Rhoda's friendship is fully expressed as is their joy in having Phyllis around for fun. Cloris Leachman's version of "Ten Cents a Dance" is one of the entire season's highlights. Harper settles into her own skin as an actress and she is incredibly well-directed. Overall a terrific episode - not too heavy on laughs for the first half, but the heartwarming moments are genuine and very well-earned.moreless
