Murphy lands an interview with her idol, the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. When Aretha's train is delayed and she can't get to the studio on time for the live broadcast, the FYI gang is left stretching their way out of the one hour long program to fill in the dead air time.
Murphy thinks a place in the country will help her relax and she brings the entire gang along to check out a farm she's thinking of buying. While Murphy tries to convince her friends how charming things are, everyone else is just bored.
Murphy is feeling even crankier at the end of her pregnancy and isn't happy that Corky is throwing her a baby shower. But she changes her mind when she realizes she will be getting terrific gifts from her peers that work in national news.
