Emily: Thanks for stopping by, Howard. Having you here makes it almost seem like I'm not alone.
"Hi, Bob"-ometer: Zero. Still 242 for the series.
As a condition of his return to the series's final year, Newhart's sixth-season contract allowed him to sit out five of the final twenty-two shows. Emily takes the spotlight in this episode, as well as in "Grizzly Emily," "Emily Carlin, Emily Carlin," "It Didn't Happen One Night," and "Crisis in Edukation," while Bob makes only token appearances in all five.
