  • Episode Description
  • After learning about her mother's death, Murphy doesn't seem to be that upset, which makes the FYI gang think that she's hiding her true feelings. She claims it's because of a letter her mother left to her saying that she must not cry, and if it's allowed she'll make one last visit to Murphy at the end of the night. So, Murphy and the Phil crowd decide to celebrate Avery's spirit. Murphy's father, Bill Brown shows up and suggests that they go home so they can talk about the good times the three of them had together. At Murphy's townhouse, Eldin is grieving Avery's passing and refuses to actually believe it. After he's gone, Murphy and her father decide to open the big trunk Avery left to Murphy containing a photo album, Murphy's indian blanket among other things. After arguing with her father over things from the past, Murphy finds a little box inside of the trunk, with one of Avery's hats, which Murphy tries on, also in that box there's a smaller one wrapped up as a present with a little baby hat that belonged to Murphy. Murphy cries over her mother's loss for the first time. Bill Brown consoles Murphy and says he wants to be a bigger part of Murphy's life and his grandchild's. They share a warm hug. Bill Brown concludes that Avery made her last visit after all.moreless

    • (Eldin has his own way of mourning Avery Brown.) Eldin: I'm gonna go to the Painters Bar and I'm gonna have a cappuccino in her honor. And then I'm gonna take my pants off and drive around town. Murphy: What? Why? Eldin: It's something we do in the Bernecky family when a loved one dies. We don't know why. I think there was some kind of miscommunication down the line.
