Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Overhearing a telephone conversation in the newsroom, Mary (Mary Tyler Moore) becomes intrigued by the voice of Mike Cooper (Michael Constantine), an old friend of her boss, Lou Grant (Edward Asner). Picking up the hint (even though Mary didn't exactly drop it), Lou breaks one of his self-imposed rules and decides to play matchmaker between Mary and his middle-aged pal. Unfortunately, such a task requires subtlety and discretion -- two qualities which Lou lacks in abundance. "I Am Curious Cooper" was originally broadcast on September 25, 1971.
