Jay Thomas makes his first series appearance as potty-mouthed tabloid journalist Jerry Gold, arch rival of the "FYI" team. Bringing the antagonists together (in a manner of speaking) is a challenge made by Jerry to Murphy (Candice Bergen) that her team can't stick to their new, eco-friendly garbage recycling program for a whole two weeks. Murphy accepts the challenge, even though she will be forced to appear on Jerry's show as a guest (or victim!) if she loses. (As noted by several Murphy Brown aficionados, this episode marks the introduction of those colorful "FYI" recycling bins that will remain a studio fixture for the entire run of the series).
