In this classic episode, Rob (Dick Van Dyke) and Laura (Mary Tyler Moore) give their neighbor Millie (Ann Morgan Guilbert) the lowdown about their big weekend in New York, which was supposed to have involved a romantic getaway at a plush hotel and a fabulous night at a Broadway show. Unfortunately, the couple's plans were radically altered when, while taking a bath, Laura got her big toe stuck in the bathtub faucet! Legend has it that Mary Tyler Moore burst into tears when she read the script for this episode because it required her to be off-camera for most of the action; but when the show finally aired, she realized that it represented one of her finest half-hours.
