Storyline

Lars and Phyllis are arguing about her exorbitant spending habits, in part because of their stocks taking a tumble and Lars' business being down. He ultimately places her on a budget and cuts off access to her credit cards. So Phyllis decides to look for a job. In her search for a job, Phyllis comes to some realizations about her place in working society, which makes her compare her life to Mary's. Meanwhile, the Lindstroms' money woes make Mary examine her own finances. And Sue Ann, named woman of the year by the local Elks Club, does whatever she can to get her story on the six o'clock news.

Fantastic Phyllis Lindstrom
4 December 2019 | by RrrobertSee all my reviews

Fantastic Phyllis episode.

Phyllis is flabbergasted when Lars asks her to cut her spending. When it is revealed they are nearly broke Phyllis tries to look for a job but she has no useful qualification, no experience, no practical skills.

Every scene sparkles in this episode.

It features Doris Roberts, Phyllis in some fantastic costumes, and another peek inside the Lindstrom apartment.

This was Phyllis's final MTM episode before moving to her spinoff series, the premise of which pivoted on the low finances / lack of job skills angle.
