You’re Gonna make It Afterall

Mary Tyler Moore has died at the age of 80. Sigh.

She’ll first and foremost be Rob’s wife in The Dick van Dyke Show. O Robbbbbb.

Then of course, her own show that I adored watching. Reader Cripes Suzette is the self-avowed MTM Trivia Queen so perhaps she’ll chime in and wow us with some tidbits about the show we don’t know.

The other Mary was sensational as the cold mom in Ordinary People, such a deep and moving flick that I might just find and watch again, in MTM’s honor

I’ll never accept that she was 80 yeas old at her death. It’s not possible.

Bye Bye Mary. You will be missed.

Who can turn the world on with her smile?
Who can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?
Well it’s you girl, and you should know it
With each glance and every little movement you show it
Love is all around, no need to waste it
You can never tell, why don’t you take it
You’re gonna make it after all
You’re gonna make it after all
How will you make it on your own?
This world is awfully big, girl this time you’re all alone
But it’s time you started living
It’s time you let someone else do some giving
Love is all around, no need to waste it
You can never tell, why don’t you take it
You might just make it after all
You might just make it after all

  1. MTM was the woman so many of us wanted to be. Pretty. Funny, Independent. Successful. I don’t think her personal life was as perfect, married several times and with health issues she battled.

    Do we know what killed her?

    1. Hope it wasn’t Sue Ann’s Veal Prince Orloff.
      The Mary Tyler Moore show was one of the best. Excellent, classy, entertainment that I looked forward to watching.
      Sorry to learn she passed away.

      1. I wonder how many cast members are still alive. Betty White is 90+. Ed Asner has got to be up there.

        Classy is a perfect word for her show. Hard to believe how far off the rails tv shows have become.

    1. I KNEW you’d know something we didn’t. Love that link. We never did see her bathroom and it’s funny looking at the layout that she went through her closet to the bathroom but I guess she had to because that was the only corner of the studio left for the bathroom.

      I also never saw her actually use the woodstove in the back corner and I think in later seasons the woodstove was gone. Yes? No?

      Yes, her obit did credit her animal rights advocacy. She and Bernadette Peters, neighbors and good friends, combined efforts for years on animal rights. I did NOT know about the lobster. You win the trivia contest!!


    1. What the hell is that??? Elvis as a doctor?? MTM is a nun but a woman at heart?? And the lovely Jane Elliott, Never to be heard from again????

      That would be fun to watch. Fun meaning needing to be drunk while viewing!!!
