Mary
Mr. Grant
Ted
Pass the tissues! After the new station manager fires everyone but Ted, Mary tells her WJM family, "I just wanted you to know that sometimes I get concerned about being a career woman. I get to thinking my job is too important to me, and I tell myself that the people I work with are just the people I work with and not my family. And last night, I thought, 'What is a family, anyway?' They're just people who make you feel less alone ... and really loved. And that's what you've done for me. Thank you for being my family."
