Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Mary (Mary Tyler Moore) has been stood up on dates before, but never with such consistency. That's the situation which prevails, when, while doing volunteer work for the government, Mary accepts a dinner invitation from a handsome Governor's aide. Trouble is, at the last moment, the aide finds himself too busy to take her out and remains too busy the next several times he asks her out. "The Five-minute Dress" first aired on January 1, 1972.
