Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Mary (Mary Tyler Moore) talks her boss, Lou (Edward Asner), into hiring Rhoda (Valerie Harper) to redecorate his living room. Alas, Lou's tastes are traditional and thrifty, while Rhoda is a disciple of the "extravagant and expensive" school. Not surprisingly, Lou holds Mary responsible for his disappointment over Rhoda's handiwork -- but it isn't Mary who solves the dilemma on this occasion. "The Square-shaped Room" originally aired on December 11, 1971.
