1. I started out as a Murray, but as I get older I'm more of a Lou Grant.

6. Lol! Ted is so hilarious!
He reminds me of a sweet George Bush.

The episode if Ted meeting Walter Cronkite where Ted says, "Let's talk shop. What wires do you have trouble pronouncing?"

2. Rhoda. No doubt about it.
As I age, traces of her mother Ida are beginning to manifest.

3. I asked for an outside opinion -- hubby said I'm more like Rhoda in the ditzy sense but
his first choice was Mary because I'm more on the quiet side.

4. what? No Phyllis ??


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phyllis_Lindstrom

Phyllis Lindstrom is the snobbish and spoiled wife of dermatologist Dr. Lars Lindstrom. Phyllis managed the apartment building in which both Mary Richards and Rhoda Morgenstern lived. Also living with Phyllis was her daughter, Bess, with whom both Mary and Rhoda developed a close relationship.

Throughout the series, Rhoda and Phyllis maintained an adversarial-but-friendly relationship. Phyllis also developed a dislike for Sue Ann Nivens, who hosted "The Happy Homemaker" on WJM-TV, after Sue Ann had an affair with Phyllis's husband.

A little song. A little dance. A little seltzer in your pants.
