Storyline

Ted has been asked by a local newspaper to write a 1,500 word article on Freedom of the Press for $200. Ted thinks it's going to be an easy task, and is out to prove he can do it after Lou bets him that he can't. But Ted finds that it is much more difficult to write than he thought. Ted asks Murray to write it for him. The deal: Ted will give Murray the entire $200, in exchange for the article and a complete vow of silence, even to Marie and Georgette. The article ends up garnering much public praise, with those that know Ted not believing that he actually wrote it. Both Mary and Lou know in their hearts that Murray wrote it, but Murray does respect his and Ted's agreement. When they all learn that Reader's Digest is reprinting the article and paying Ted $2,500 for it, Mary and Lou do whatever they can to break the code of silence between Murray and Ted.
