In the concluding half-hour of Murphy Brown's Season Five opener (originally telecast as a single hour-long episode), Murphy is still seething over the words of Vice President Dan Quayle, who has publicly chastised her decision to bear a child out of wedlock as a mockery of "Family Values" (this episode is of course based on the real-life controversy surrounding Mr. Quayle's reaction to the series' Season Four finale). While trying to mount a suitable response to these words, Murphy is also being stressed out by her efforts to choose a name for her baby--to say nothing of hiring a suitable nanny and prepping herself to return to "FYI".
