Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Joanna Gleason guest stars as Athena Gillington, a prominent Washington hostess with whom Murphy (Candice Bergen) has been feuding for years. When Athena invites Murphy to a party, Murphy thinks that the gesture has been made out of pity. In fact, the invite was made for purely mercenary reasons, to help promote Athena's new book "I Just Turned 50." Characteristically, Murphy swears vengeance upon Athena--and vengeance may well be in her grasp when she learns a startling secret about her hostess.
