These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Even though, if Quayle hadn't mentioned the show, no one would likely have known Quayle had even given the speech except for the people who were there to hear it.
Deader Than Disco: Unlike most Sit Coms of its era, Murphy Brown is rarely seen in syndication due to the now-dated political references (there's now an entire generation of TV watchers who have no clue who Lesley Stahl and Dan Quayle are.) Season 1 was released on DVD in 2005 but sold so poorly that no further releases are planned. Sad, really, since (topical humor aside,) the show is still well-written and well-acted.
"Funny Aneurysm" Moment: In the episode where we meet Miles' radical activist parents, one of the reasons the latter claims his childhood was so miserable was because they didn't let him join the Boy Scouts due to them considering them a "fascist organization". Considering the later controversies involving the Scouts' discrimination against homosexuals and atheists, one wonders if they had a point after all.
Reverse Funny Aneurysm: After Murphy's attempt to get an interview with the recently instated President Clinton goes horribly wrong, the Secret Service informs her that she is is banned from speaking to the President for the next "four, maybe eight years" after which she can "discuss the matter with President Gore... Or so he thinks."
