After ten years as "FYI"'s perennial runner-up, Frank (Joe Regalbuto) finally wins the coveted Humboldt Award. The honor causes his chest to swell with pride--right along with his ego, which expands to impossible proportions. Before long, Frank is summarily rejecting news assignments that are "not Humboldt material", and is shamelessly hawking his own franchised action figure! Meanwhile, Murphy becomes touchier than usual over comments about her pregnancy weight gain. CBS newsman Harry Smith appears as himself.
