  • Murphy extends the hand of friendship. Only to be met by the thumb-in-the-eye of regret.

    8.6
    Kyle Whitsett was falsely accused of bank robbery. He gets out of jail and appears as a quiet but happy guest on FYI. The show pulls excellent ratings and reviews. Murphy has more to deal with, however--she has no secretary but is swamped with work. Kyle shows up to tell everyone how happy he is, and now he's looking for a job. Guess where the network can use an extra pair of hands?... That's right. He takes the desk as Murphy's new assistant. Brown comes to regret the generosity. He wrecks her typewriter, filing system and ant farm, but everyone else feels sorry for him. Kyle's office skills are so lacking, however, that he drives the rest of the staff nuts as well, so they have to figure out a way to let him down easy.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Jim: You know, Kyle, it sometimes helps to have a little anecdote ready for the interview.
      Kyle: Well, uh, maybe I could tell 'em about the time the guys in my cellblock tried to drown me in the toilet bowl.
      Jim: Skip the anecdote, Kyle.

    • Frank: That's nothing, he car pools with me. Every day he teaches me a new song he learned in prison. Today it was 'The Warden's A Winkin' At Me'.

    • Murphy: Now let me see if I've got this right, I don't have a secretary today because you can't work on a Jewish holiday but you can't remember which Jewish holiday it is. No, I'm sorry Ms. McCall, Rosh Kippur doesn't quite make it.

    • Jim (trying not to be seen as Kyle walks into the bar): He found us.
      Frank: How does he do it?
      Corky: We had an old bloodhound like that back home. We had to shoot him.
