Phyllis Lindstrom [played by Cloris Leachman]: “Bess... is outside - with her young man... and they're going to the school dance, and she's so proud of him, I just know how much she'd like you to meet him...”

Mary Richards [played by Mary Tyler Moore]: “Oh, sure, I'd love to meet him...”

Phyllis: “Oh, and, um, Mary; when I bring them in, um, don't make a big fuss over them. Don't treat them like children. They're not children, you know. They're little people.”

Rhoda Morgenstern [played by Valerie Harper]: “I would love to meet your 'little people.' Why don't you slide them under the door?”— The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Season 3, Episode 12, “It Was Fascination, I Know,” original air date Dec. 2, 1972, teleplay by Ed. Weinberger, directed by Jay Sandrich
