“Designing Women” Thursday: Mary Jo comes into an expected windfall and considers getting a boob job
Annie Potts was perfection for all seven seasons of Designing Women as Mary Jo Shively, a divorced woman who is the creative brains behind the design business that the show revolves around.
This is one of her most memorable scenes in which she utters the line: “These things are POWER!”
Mary Jo is a beautiful gal, but she is not near as blessed in the boob department as Suzanne or Charlene.
So when a relative dies and leaves her some money, she considers breast enlargement surgery. She’s not sure how big she wants to go so tries out a few different sizes and goes out on the town with Julia (Dixie Carter) to gauge the reaction.
This scene in the bar is an absolute hoot!
Here is a LINK to an earlier scene in the episode that sets this up. I am unable to embad it. Enjoy!
