  • Quotes (4)

    • Miles: Some guy called. He said if we don't drop the story he's gonna send me to Toledo in several small sandwich bags. Murphy: Is that what this is all about? Hey, everybody, Miles, just got his first death threat! Death threats happen to every good journalist, Miles. You've gotta look at it as a right of passage. Miles: I'm sorry I had my right of passage. There was a rabbi and a big buffet.

    • Eldin: (while listening to Motown with Murphy) You dance like a white girl.

    • Murphy: Has anyone seen Miles? Carl: Silverberg? He's still alive?

    • (Speaking to Murphy after introducing herself and giving exceptional references) Secretary #7: And when I spoke to Satan this morning after breakfast he said this would be a great opportunity.

    Trivia (3)

    • Secretary #6: A woman who only spoke a few words of english.

    • Secretary #7: A satanist.

    • The title of the episode "Nowhere to Run" is a hit song by Martha Reeves and the Vandellas. Coincidentally, when Candice Bergen hosted SNL on December 20, 1975, the musical guest was Martha Reeves.

    Allusions (2)

    • Murphy: (trying to help out Miles with his death threat) I could pass the story on to Jane Pauley and maybe they'll kill her. Jane Pauley was the co-host of Today from 1976-1989. She later went on to co-anchor Dateline NBC.

    • Title: The title of this episode refers to the Martha and the Vandellas hit of the same name.
