Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Worried that she'll be tempted to fall off the wagon and make a fool of herself (it's been known to happen), Murphy (Candice Bergen) balks at accepting an invitation to attend a New Year's Eve party held by coworker Corky (Faith Ford). Assured that no alcohol will be served, Murphy agrees to show up, though she's certain that she will have a miserable time. Needless to say, the results are surprising for everyone--especially Murphy. Janet Carroll makes her first appearance as Doris, the wife of uptight anchorman Jim Dial (Charles Kimbrough).
