She is dating Gary and helps him and Walter in their quest to reunite the Muppets and save the Muppet Studios. She works as a shop teacher at an elementary school, and in one scene, shows her students how to fix a 12-volt starter on an old station wagon. As a testament to her teaching skills, her students are disappointed when the school lets out for spring break, but she cheers them up when she tells them they'll be back in two weeks. According to the production notes, her sixteen students account for the sixteen perfect apples that sit on the edge of her desk.
In the movie, it's revealed that Mary is jealous of Gary's relationship with Walter and feels that he doesn't spend enough time with her as much as he does with his brother.
In The Muppets: The Movie Junior Novel, her being a shop teacher is one of the reasons Gary states that he and Mary are perfect to help rebuild The Muppet Theatre. This fact is omitted in the film. At the end of the movie, Mary uses her abilities to rewire the fuse box to restore electricity to the studio during The Muppet Telethon.
