  • Murphy gets a little unexpected vacation, and drives herself and her friends round the bend.

    Murphy faces off with a military official in an interview, and when he only answers her questions with rhetoric, she humiliates him by walking out and then reading the newspaper. Producer Miles is furious. He suspends Murphy for two weeks. The head of the network wants to let her stay, because there's a ratings battle on, but caves to Miles' request in order to save face. Murphy has to cope with the downtime. She goes stir crazy at home. Frank and Jim try to snap her out of it. She peps up and lands an interview with Marlon Brando. Will this induce Miles to bring Murphy back into the fold? All's well that ends strangely.
