Two Wrongs Don't Make a Writer is the twenty-third episode of the fourth season of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and the ninety-fifth episode overall.
Ted believes that the act of writing is beneath him, until he learns that some of the "big ones", such as Walter Cronkite, sometimes write their own copy. When Ted's attempt to emulate a "big one" has a less than positive response, Ted decides that he will sit in on a creative writing class. Unfortunately for Mary, the class that he chooses is the one she is taking. Ted thinks that he can breeze through the class on the strength of his news background, but finds that his first assignment is more difficult to write than he imagined. A day before the assignment is due and is to be read in front of the class, Ted has not even started and asks Mary to write his paper for him, which she refuses to do. But Ted will do anything to make himself look good in front of the class, even at the expense of a friend.
