  • In my opinion this was one of the funniest epsidoes. The FYI gang has Murphy\'s Counterpart in Russia come to the United States to do a show with them.

    9.7
    Murphy is forced to share the spotlight with the Russian version of herself who comes to the US. The two women are forced to spend time together and do not get along at all-just the premise itself is funny.



    The frustration Murphy shows while her coworkers fall over themselves to make \"Vladia\" feel at home is just simply classic.



    In a futile attempt to get these two women to get along, they are sent to Atlantic City so they can have some \"fun\" together, and they don\'t return until minutes before showtime.

    it\'s at this point that Murphy delivers probably one of the funniest lines I have ever heard on this show. No, I\'m not going to say it here-it\'s worth hearing for yourselves on the show.

    • Jim: Where are they, Miles? It's three minutes to airtime, it's not like, Murphy to be late.
      Miles: I'm not worried.It means their enjoying themselves. Best of buddies. That was the whole point, right? It's not like we'll have an hour of dead air. We can film my heart attack. The important thing is their having fun playing keno!

  • NOTES (1)

    • The opening for this episode features Murphy trying to wrap a gift (presumably for Vladia). She then gives up and uses the bag from her trash bin.

      The song "Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing" is used in the background.
