During an intense practical-joke war between Murphy (Candice Bergen) and Frank (Joe Regalbuto), Murphy puckishly hires a man to present himself to Frank, claiming to be "Deep Throat" of Watergate fame. It would have been amusing if the man hired was the genuine "Deep Throat", former FBI deputy chief Mark Felt, but his identity was still under wraps back in 1990. At any rate, Frank falls for the impostor hook, line and sinker--and as a result he all but destroys his journalistic career!
