She goes so far as to put some of her toddler son's artwork on display in a gallery, only gallery: while one critic immediately sees through it and considers it to see be meaningless scribbles, another one sees it become popular. as brilliant and they get into a huge argument. When one of the patrons wants to ''buy'' a painting, the painting (which he hasn't even ''seen'', he's simply buying it because since two major critics are arguing over it and Murphy is there to cover it, it ''must'' be of great imporatnce), she tries to inform him it was painted by a child. He smugly tells her that she just doesn't ''get'' it.
