Synopsis by Hal Erickson
With Lou Grant (Ed Asner) still melancholy over the breakup of his marriage, Mary (Mary Tyler Moore) suggests that he'd feel better if he sold his house and moved into a smaller place. As usual, Mary's helpful advice backfires when Lou rents an apartment in her own building. This episode represented one of the first directorial assignments for frequent Mary Tyler Moore Show scriptwriter James Burrows -- but not the last, not by a long shot. "Neighbors" originally aired on December 7, 1974.
