That's the adorable Rose Marie telling Mary Tyler Moore about her date with an old high school classmate named Bassfinder. I only recently started watching "Dick Van Dyke", so I'm completely uninformed about its widely known history. The only things I've heard about it were how people thought Dyke and Moore were really married and how unusual it was for her to wear pants most of the time. That's really cool and everything, but why wear pants when they had so many amazing dresses in the early 1960's? I also luv Marie's hair bow (which apparently is her signature) since I tend to wear one on the same side myself.
This particular episode talks about women being single in their 20s, 30s, or 40s. Its funny to think that people would look at you a certain way if you weren't married. To each their own. I think they try to show both sides, but you still can't help the time when this show was made. Women's lib and feminism was probably in its infancy.
