Favorite Quotes From Mary Tyler Moore

Reruns are great because they usually indicate that the original show had something going for it, which is why you keep looking at them. Both my shows, The Dick Van Dyke Show, and the last, were so well-written and good that they still hold up.

That’s exactly what the audience felt as they watched the show, and now they are watching it again. The way it was written is what’s most important. It was honest. There was never a manufactured laugh. There was never any compromise of character.
