On the occasion of "FYI"'s 17th anniversary, the network hires the show's original anchorman Stuart Best (Wallace Shawn) for a guest appearance. This does not sit well with Jim (Charles Kimbrough), Frank (Joe Regalbuto) and Murphy (Candice Bergen), who so despised Best during his first go-round that they arranged to have him fired. Not surprisingly, the trio intends to do the same thing when Best returns--at least until Murphy discovers that she may owe her entire career to her much-hated former colleague.
