  • Quotes (1)

    • Mr. Carlin: I don't know, Dr. Hartly. I just always get the feeling that people are laughing at me behind my back. Bob: Why do you say that, Mr. Carlin? Mr. Carlin: Maybe it's because of the sounds of laughter that always seem to be coming from the opposite direction I'm facing.

    Notes (2)

    • "Hi, Bob"-ometer: None. Count is still at 113 for the series.

    • Nepotism Alert!! Guest Bill Quinn is, in fact, Bob Newhart's father-in-law!

    Trivia (1)

    • Carol says that growing up she was "tall and thin and red-haired." But in other episodes she has said she used to be very overweight.
