Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Former That Girl costar Ted Bessell appears as Joe Warner, the new man in the life of lovelorn Mary Richards (Mary Tyler Moore). Joe's elaborate displays of public affection are a source of both delight and embarrassment for Mary. But the heroine's friends cannot help but notice that Joe never says anything about "Love" -- and soon Mary notices his avoidance of the L-word as well. Valerie Harper makes a return appearance as Mary's pal Rhoda, with David Groh as Rhoda's new husband Joe Gerard. "Mary Richards Falls in Love" was originally broadcast on November 22, 1975.
