See the full list. Sherry Ferris, the prostitute with who Mary once shared a jail cell when Mary wouldn't reveal a news source, comes by asking for that favor that Mary promised within general chit-chat back at the jail cell.
Sherry, once again arrested, wants Mary to be a character witness at her court appearance. Mary agrees.
It ends up not being that simple, as Mary swears in court that she will look after Sherry and help her look for a legitimate job. Sherry doesn't want to hold Mary to that promise, as Sherry doesn't believe she can get a legitimate job with her background and lack of marketable job skills, but Mary takes her oath seriously. The difficulty of the task becomes not finding a job for Sherry, but finding her a job that she likes and thus will stick with. Mary encourages Sherry to follow her dreams. Mary may regret that advice when she is the recipient of one of Sherry's professional dreams.
Written by Huggo. Mary is re-acquainted with a hooker she met in jail in first episode of this season and encourages her to pursue her dream of being a dress deer. Sherry des a dress for Mary and brings it over for her to try on.
It's basically an evening gown that is split twice down the front of it from just under the bust to the ankles, exposing some fabulous Mary Tyler Moore flesh. Ted Baxter usually doesn't make me laugh, but his reaction to Mary in the gown is great.
Episode also includes a line from Mary I remembered for 34 years even though I haven't seen this episode since it originally ran circa Mary is teasing Mr. Grant about his concern that she might pick up bad habits from being friends with a hooker. She tells him she went down to the "docks" and wrote her name and in a phone booth. Thirty million Frenchmen can't be wrong.
