Vacation Reruns: Long-lost opening scene from 70s spinoff “Rhoda” featuring guest star Mary Tyler Moore

Happy Saturday everyone! Thanks for your patience as I put the blog on the back burner for at least a few more weeks. It turns out I can’t stay away completely so I will be sporadically sharing a post here and there including some stuff from the archives like the following post. Enjoy!

As far as female friendships on television go, the one between Mary Richards and Rhoda Morgenstern is almost right up there with Lucy Ricardo and Ethel Mertz.

It was heartbreaking when, after four seasons, Rhoda (Valerie Harper) left Minneapolis to move back to New York City. Except for a handful of crossover episodes and a TV movie decades later, that was it for Rhoda and Mary (Mary Tyler Moore).

I remember watching the first episode of Rhoda – which ran for five seasons – and remember this scene that has Mary dropping Rhoda off at the airport. But when I bought the first season of Rhoda on DVD a few years ago, that scene was not included.

Earlier today, it surfaced on my YouTube feed and it makes me so happy.

3 Remarks

  1. Greg,
    Do what you gotta do, and it’s nice to see whenever you can post!
    Cheers, Rick

  2. That was pretty cool to see!

  3. As a Minneapolis resident, one of my favorite Mary/Rhoda moments was when Rhoda phoned Mary to pick her up as she was running late. Rhoda said she “was on the corner of Lake Street and Nicollet,” which at the time was very sketchy. Only prostitutes hung out on Lake and Nicollet. I figured the window display biz was down and girl needed to make some fast coin.
