Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Murphy (Candice Bergen) is getting tired of accusations that she dates men solely on the basis of their looks, especially since the accusations are true. To prove something not only to her friends but to herself, Murphy agrees to go out with her new acquaintance, nerdish-but-brilliant physicist Victor Rudman (Buck Henry). Naturally, Murphy is certain that she is in for an evening of intellectual rather than carnal stimulation--but Victor Rudman turns out to have other ideas! This is the 17th episode of Murphy Brown--which happens to be the same number of secretaries that she's already hired and fired.
