Episode cast overview:


Chris Matthews, a local Minneapolis reporter, has made good by winning the Pulitzer Prize. Everyone seems happy for Chris, except Murray, who is depressed, although he can't put into words what's bothering him. As he starts to discuss the issue with Mary and Lou, Murray comes to the realization that Chris' success, he who was a classmate of Murray's, is just the tip of the iceberg in feeling like his life is nowhere near what he envisioned it would be when he was just starting out. The troubled thoughts about his current lot in life include not only work but also the state of his marriage despite loving Marie. Lou tries to help him by giving him some on-air duties, which doesn't seem to help. This midlife crisis may ultimately be something that Murray has to work out for himself. Meanwhile, Mary is having a good laugh as she does a personal side job for Ted: transcribing his memoirs. Written by Huggo
