Mary Tyler Moore once imagined Laura Petrie's ''quietly wonderful'' future beyond The Dick Van Dyke Show - 04-24


The last shot of The Dick Van Dyke Show sees Rob and Laura Petrie step away from the group to share one last smooch before the credits roll on "The Last Chapter." Throughout the series, the character of Laura is depicted in many ways, as loving wife and mother, a former U.S.O. dancer and even at one point, a writer who shows so much potential that it mildly threatens professional TV writer Rob for a time. She's a wonderful housewife and stay-at-home mom who never fails to show how much she has to offer and even saves the day a time or two, despite her hilarious penchant for histrionics.
