Murder, She Wrote: No Laughing Murder   Rewatch 
March 21, 2015 10:47 AM - Season 3, Episode 18 - Subscribe

Mack Howard and Murray Gruen were a celebrated comical duo but party in anger years back. Now Murray's daughter Corrie and Mack's son Kip (a young and shaggy George Clooney) are engaged, and some family and friends, including family friend Jessica Fletcher, are meeting for an engagement dinner at Murray's run-down Hiawatha lodge. It's not long before Murray and Mack are at it again, each claiming the other stole a fortune in royalties on videos of the duo. There's back-stabbing and murder, quite literally, before any resolution can be found, thanks to JB.

George Clooney! I didn't know he existed before the 90s.

He was the handyman on Facts of Life! You know, the latter part when the girls ran a store and had giant hair and wore pantsuits and bolos. And his character's name was... George!

And of course any time Murray talked, I yelled out out DINGLEHOPPER.

I still couldn't figure out Jessica's relationship to these people. Was Corrie another niece?

Family friend, it seems, close enough to take the place of Corrie's mother in the wedding. No weird branches for JB's family tree in this episode.
