Delray Beach- That Smile...

Delray Beach- That Smile…

In the 70’s, I was guaranteed a smile and a chuckle at least once a week on Saturday nights.  If you were a fan of Mary Tyler Moore then you’ve probably been humming the song … You’re going to make it after all… since the news of her passing.

Sometimes you have to get to know someone really well to realize you're really strangers. Mary Tyler Moore

 

 

Before Mary Richards, there was Laura Petrie.  One of my favorite episodes was when she disclosed to the world that her husband’s boss, Alan Brady/Carl Reiner was bald.

Take chances, make mistakes. That's how you grow. Pain nourishes your courage. You have to fail in order to practice being brave. Mary Tyler Moore

And, don’t forget the big M on Mary’s wall.  She even hung it up when she moved to a new apartment.  We all ran out and bought our own initials for our walls.

 

 

Having a dream is what keeps you alive. Overcoming the challenges makes life worth living. Mary Tyler Moore

 

One line I will always remember didn’t come from Mary but from Lou Grant/Ed Asner and was directed to her:

Lou:  You’ve got spunk.

Mary smiles...

Lou: I hate spunk!

 

Whatever it is, it’s OK because it’s what it is. Don’t be looking for perfection. Don’t be short-tempered with yourself. And you’ll be a whole lot nicer to be around with everyone else.   Mary Tyler Moore

 

So, to the woman who showed us that the next step out of college did not have to be marriage and that focusing on a career did not mean that you were a shark incapable of relationships...I will miss you.

We certainly have lost some great ones in the last several months.  And, Mary Tyler Moore was one of the best!

Ed Silva I wonder how many hats were thrown in the air in that town. 

Bill Roberts most would have said that Rob Petrie was lucky.

Hi Kathy - I was a fan of the MTM show also, and those quotes do a great job of capturing her style.

Kathy I remember very well the Dick Van Dyke episode you mentioned.  Another of my favorites from that show was the one did on the "twist" with Chubby Checker.

Kathy, what a great tribute to a woman that we Minnesotans thought of as our own....she even has a statue here of here signature hat-throw, and it was re-enacted just yesterday in downtown Minneapolis. 

You found some great material that would have made MTM very proud.  Thank you!

I will miss her too! She was someone with personality, made people laugh and cry at the same time. I don't believe anyone was ever jealous of her. Mary Tyler Moore had a fanbase that loved her!

This is a wonderful tribute to someone I think we all know from television, loved and enjoyed what she stood for.
