Frustrated that the "FYI" team openly mocks new anchorman Miller Redfield (Christopher Rich) on the air, Miles (Grant Shaud) turns to Miller's predecessor Jim (Charles Kimbrough) for advice. Jim suggests that Miles pack up the entire staff for a group retreat, where they will (supposedly!) get in touch with, and overcome, their inner turmoil. A subplot involving Elizabeth Taylor and some stolen pearls was originally part of a running gag which permeated CBS' entire Monday-night sitcom lineup (The Nanny, Can't Hurry Love, Murphy Brown and High Society) on February 26, 1996.
