Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Barbara Colby returns as Sherry, the hard-boiled "working girl" with whom Mary (Mary Tyler Moore) briefly shared a cell in the fifth-season opener "Will Mary Richards Go to Jail?" To keep Sherry from going back to the slammer, big-hearted Mary tries to rehabilitate her. This, however, means that Mary will have to find a job for Sherry, who isn't quite accustomed to regular working hours. "You Try to Be a Nice Guy" originally aired on February 8, 1975.
