After a casual and informal conversation between Lou, Mary and Murray about needing someone to do menial tasks around the office such as making coffee, Mary has no problem making the unilateral decision to hire Bonnie Slaughter, Murray's fifteen year old daughter, as the office's Girl Friday, especially after Murray says that Bonnie is looking for her first ever job. This decision causes many problems in the office. First, Lou, without even seeing Bonnie's work, wants Mary to fire her as he knows he can't be his curse spewing self around a teen-aged girl, especially the daughter of a friend. Second, Murray can't help but do whatever he can to make Bonnie's life as easy as possible, even at the expense of his own work. And third, Bonnie's small and not so small gaffes cause some issues in other areas of the newsroom, even with the on-air newscast. Despite Mary's support for Bonnie, will she ultimately cave in and fire Bonnie, and if so how will that affect Murray's working relationship... Written by
