I know they had a father/daughter type relationship (except the episode when they dated and kissed), but do you think Lou ever thought about slipping Mary his stubby, fat, hairy sausage?
No, he always thought of her as another daughter.
Lou was in his 40s during the course of the show. 40s have changed a lot since then.
Damn, OP, that's classy.
You should definitely facebook that.
Your two friends will LOVE it.
Ed Asner was 41 when the Mary Tyler Moore Show started. He was around 48 in Roots. He looked like an old man already at both ends of the decade.
SHUT DOWN IMMEDIATELY
Nonsense, it is the first of many, many Valentine's day threads.
I'll bet you were the brightest in your class, weren't you?
There was an episode where they had a date, Mary cooked dinner for Lou at her apartment (the new one, next door to Laverne). They kissed and both started cracking up laughing. So, yes, there was some sexual tension/awareness, but both realized neither could act on it.
Sue Ann Nivens
M-m-m-m-m-m-m-Mister Graaaaaaaaaaaaant! Y-y-y-y-y-y-you came in my moooooooooouth!
Mary seemed similar in personality to Lou's ex-wife Edie. However, the episode with Lou dating Rhoda seemed strangely natural and charming. They seemed like a great couple unlike Mary and Lou, which was ridiculous.
"M-m-m-m-m-m-m-Mister Graaaaaaaaaaaaant! Y-y-y-y-y-y-you came in my moooooooooouth!"
Guess Lou isn't the only one who hates spunk (R10)!!
Lou didn't like "skinny" women, as he said several times.
Every man alive -- gay or straight -- thinks about having sex with co-workers that might be considered attractive, and even some who wouldn't. Whether they act on it or is another story.
I'd lick his shitter!
I love spunk!
Buck never would've asked such a ridiculous question, OP.
If I remember correctly, wasn't Sue Ann Nivens (Betty White) hot for Lou?
Maude was 47 when the show started. Archie was 48 or 49 when All in the Family started.
The 40s are very different now.
Why not have a thread JUST about the Lou Granite Show?
The Lou Grant show had a way different feel from the MTM show. I remember the two young guy and girl reporters in the newsroom who took themselves oh so seriously.
Don't even want to think about Lou and Mary getting it on.
No because Lou doesn't like skinny girls. (He said it)
[quote] stubby, fat, hairy sausage
Lou was a stud. Nothing stubby about him. He had a long, fat cuntrammer.
Straight men fantasize about fucking all women, even ugly fatties.
It was Murray Slaughter who was in love with Mary Richards. but Murray would never hurt Marie
Lou wanted to bang Mary. Hard. Repeatedly.
When the dub this show in French, Mary becomes Marie so they renamed Marie, Paula
He pushed a SERIOUS basket on the show. I was 10-17 years old through the run of the show.
Lusting after Lou was confusing when I hadn't even had sex yet. But a big solid, mountain of a man with a big round head & a beer can dick is still my type!
Also used to fantasize about having an apartment like Mary's.
The first episode that suggested a Lou/Rhoda pairing was when he hired her to redocorate his house and it was a disaster. But even though Lou hated what she did, he expressed his admiration for her because of the way she was yelling at the painters. In the date episode, when Sue Ann commends him for taking out a "last resort", Lou has this dreamy look saying "I had fun, I had a lot of fun." Even though Mary was indeed closer to Edie, personality wise, Rhoda seemed a better match than either.
this thread is so gay it should have its own fanny pack.
