Synopsis by Hal Erickson
It's time for a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T at the "FYI" studio, as Murphy (Candice Bergen) anxiously awaits her opportunity to interview singer Aretha Franklin. So momentous is this assignment that Murphy wangles extra airtime from her co-anchors. Unfortunately, she gets a LOT more airtime than she ever expected--or wanted--when Aretha's train and limosine are both delayed by unexpected traffic! The episode's highlight is a duet (or something like it) between Lady Soul and the famously tone-deaf Murphy Brown!
