In an episode hated by creator Hugh Wilson, but loved by the fans, we see a day in the life of WKRP. Johnny and Venus are participating in a "Drinking and Response Time" on-air promotion. Mr. Carlson & Andy are being interviewed for a newspaper about the changes at the station. The lobby is being painted by a lazy and slow painter. And Herb, dressed like a Karp (WKRP) gets into a fight with a guy dressed like a Pig (WPIG) in a college bathroom and gets arrested with Bailey and Les. Written by

One sign of the times in this episode is the use of pay toilets in a public restroom, which by this time was being phased out across the country. Herb, wearing the fish costume needed to use the bathroom badly but had no money and tried unsuccessfully to sneak in a stall by crawling underneath the door when he is caught by the mascot for WPIG coming out of the stall next to him. That mascot slams the door on Herb when he begs to use his stall, then berates him for what he tried to do, sparking practically an all out war between the mascots with Les joining in. See more
