Can someone answer a MTM trivia question for me?
Often I have seen that somewhere in the opening credits/
intro to the MTM show there exists a scene where
she is shown having lunch with Grant Tinker (her then husband).
I have been watching the free tv shows on MSN
but nowhere do I see her having lunch.
Could this scene have been cut out?
Anybody know?
Thanks so much.
Good week, all!

They're eating upstairs in a mall or something. It's not on all of the seasons, and I don't recall which ones have it at the moment.

I think it started with the second season. One of the extras in the second season set is a 1973 documentary, similar to something you might see now on CBS Sunday Morning, called "Moore on Sunday." It shows a lot of the filming of the second season credits, and I think it includes the shot you're talking about.

It started with the fourth season, when they revamped the opening credits. The doc about the new credits, "Moore on Sunday" is indeed on the second season set as Mary_P pointed out, but the new credits were done for the fourth season.

I am often wondering whether to blind buy this show or not... I like Cheers Seinfeld and Frasier and a load of other 70's cop shows..
