Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Stuck at a fogbound airport in New York, Murphy (Candice Bergen) is unable to attend her son Avery's first birthday party. This traumatic state of affairs sets Murphy to rethinking her purpose in life, as illustrated in a series of "flash-forwards." Meanwhile, back in DC, Avery's party yields an unexpected highlight as Barry Manilow sings "I Am Your Child" (Manilow was something of a running gag on the series, but he stops running here). This final episode of Murphy Brown's fifth season also features an appearance by future NewsRadio regular Vicki Lewis.
