Rhoda's Wedding Sprint
'Come on, TOPANGA!'
The case for Rhoda's Wedding Sprint
One of the most watched television moments was Rhoda's Wedding on Rhoda in 1974. Rhoda had spent four seasons playing the Jewish ugly duckling to Mary Tyler Moore's WASP swan, when she met the man of her dreams and had a whirlwind courtship that ended with a proposal and wedding. In the storyline, nearly all the characters from Mary Tyler Moore travel to New York City for Rhoda's wedding. Phyllis, Rhoda's longtime frenemy, after inviting herself to Rhoda's wedding ceremony, is upset that she isn't included in the wedding activities. Rhoda agrees that Phyllis can drive her to the ceremony. Phyllis being Phyllis, on the actual day of the ceremony, forgets to pick Rhoda up, leaving Rhoda to go on a cross-borough trek from Manhattan to the Bronx in order to get to her wedding. The sequence ends with the iconic image of Rhoda running across the Grand Concourse in her wedding dress in order to make it to the ceremony.
