Episode Summary

EDIT

Billie and Rossi have problems trying to cover the news in a timely fashion. Billie keeps taking too long to verify her stories and misses the deadline, whereas Rossi keeps turning them in too soon and getting the facts wrong.

      • Mrs. Pynchon: (Lou and Charlie take the heat from Mrs. Pynchon over the Trib printing an incorrect story Rossi phoned in that Police Chief Rankin died in a motorcycle accident.) These stories were written by the same reporter. They are VERY extraordinarily well written. Rich in detail, imaginative, and as a matter of fact, both stories are SO vivid, the subjects seem to SPRING to life… just like Chief Rankin!
        Lou: Well you see, Mrs. Pynchon, when Rossi phoned that in, the chief actually was dead!
        Mrs. Pynchon: Well! In that case, we may have an even better story than we thought! A resurrection!

      • Charlie: She (Mrs. Pynchon) wanted to know why the death of whatshisname, that conductor, didn't make our front page.
        Lou: Because he's whatshisname, that's why.

      • Charlie: Today it's more important to be right than first, and that makes our whole profession more respectable.
        Lou: And a lot less fun.

      • Garber: I'm interested in a variety of issues: rents in urban areas, inflation, where the Tribune gets the preposterous story it runs on page one these days, ...
        Rossi: Well, if you really want to know, we get them from shifty politicians who, once in a while, use us as trial balloons.
