  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Lou: The owner has been asking about you, about how important you are to the station.
      Ted: What did you tell them, Lou?
      Mary: He told him to watch you do the news and decide for himself.
      Ted: (in a panic) Oh, my God!

    • Sue Ann: If I am going to find another job, I'd better go out and collect some references. I wonder where the 31st Armored Division is bivouacked these days.

    • Mary: I don't have a job as of Monday.
      Phyllis: We know. Lou told us when he called. It's obviously a case of sexual discrimination.
      Mary: No, no, Phyllis, they fired the guys too.
      Phyllis: Oh, Mary, you little goose! That was just to cover their tracks!

    • Rhoda: How is good old Lars?
      Phyllis: Lars is dead, Rhoda.
      Rhoda: Same old Lars.
      Phyllis: No, I mean he really passed away.
      Rhoda: What? Oh my God, I'm so sorry, Phyllis, I didn't ... Mary, why didn't you tell me?
      Mary: I thought surely Phyllis had told you.
      Rhoda: Phyllis, why didn't you tell me?
      Phyllis: I was afraid you might want to come to the funeral.

    • Lou Grant: I treasure you people.

    • Mary: I just wanted you to know that sometimes I get concerned about being a career woman. I get to thinking my job is too important to me, and I tell myself that the people I work with are just the people I work with. And not my family. And last night, I thought, 'what is a family, anyway?' They're just people who make you feel less alone...and really loved. And that's what you've done for me. Thank you for being my family.
