Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The first of the series' many "party" episodes finds Mary (Mary Tyler Moore) considering a better job than her current position at WJM-TV. Assuming that Mary will accept the job, the gang at the newsroom throws her a farewell bash. Thus, she finds herself on the horns of another dilemma; she'd really like to improve her situation, but gee, it's tough to say goodbye. Comedian Dick Clair, who with his partner and wife, Jenna McMahon, wrote several scripts for the series, is here cast as Bob Friedlander. "Party Is Such Sweet Sorrow" was originally telecast on January 9, 1971.
