Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Washington press corps' annual "Press Capades" show is rapidly approaching, and Murphy (Candice Bergen) is eagerly looking forward to portraying First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton in "The Beltway Hillbillies", a sketch she wrote herself. Alas, Murphy's autocratic behavior during rehearsals is so overbearing that the rest of the cast refuses to work with her--and chooses Katie Couric as their leading lady instead! Although Ms. Couric does not actually appear in this episode, TV journalists Wolf Blitzer and Paula Zahn and Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich show up as (who else?) themselves.
