Shelly Long returns as the insufferably perky daytime talkshow host Dottie Wilcox. Though there's no love lost between Dottie and Murphy (Candice Bergen), that doesn't stop Dottie from inviting Murphy's son Avery (now played by Jackson Buckley, replacing Dyllan Christopher) to her own son's birthday party. The situation takes a bizarre twist when Murphy unearths some unsavory facts about Dottie's "outside" business ventures (This episode was clearly inspired by a then-current contretemps involving Dottie Wilcox's real-life counterpart, a woman with three names who used to do a TV show with a guy named Regis).
