Candice Bergen won an Emmy award for her work in this episode, in which Colleen Dewhurst (also an Emmy winner) guest stars as Avery Brown, the formidable mother of TV journalist Murphy Brown (Bergen). Showing up announced at Murphy's doorstep, Avery clearly intends to stay for a long, long time--but she adamantly refuses to tell her daughter the reason for her visit. Meanwhile, Eldin (Robert Pastorelli), who likewise bids fair to be a permanent fixture in Murphy's household, makes a painful discovery about his musical "ear" (or lack of same).
