In the conclusion of a two-part story (originally telecast on CBS as a one-hour episode), Murphy (Candice Bergen) is caught in the middle when both her domineering mother Avery (Colleen Dewhurst) and her distant father Bill (Darren McGavin) show up to see Murphy accept the coveted Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Award. Although they've been divorced for 15 years, the Brown start up their bickering exactly where they left off--with Bill's remarriage to a much-younger woman, and Murphy's reluatance to invite either one of her parents to the award ceremony, both grist for the argument mill. Candice Bergen won an Emmy award for her performance in this riotous episode.
