Howard: (as the "Fear of Flying" group is getting on the elevator after their session) You know, it's funny how everybody's afraid to go up in an airplane, but nobody's afraid to get in an elevator, which is held up by one, thin little cable. (the whole group leaves the elevator and runs for the stairs)
Bob: Remember when I asked you where you wanted to go on our honeymoon-Hawaii, Acapulco-did flying have anything to do with the fact that you chose Gary, Indiana?
Bob: Emily, what happened to all the bourbon?
Emily: Oh, I put it in the chicken.
Bob: Would you like a glass of chicken, Howard?
Bob: When you love somebody, it's all right to tell them they're being stupid.
"Hi, Bob"-ometer: The first three "Hi, Bob" greetings in the series are in this episode, from Emily, Howard, and Jerry.
The Bob Newhart Show was featured in a July 2006 episode of I Love the 70s Part 2.
The teaser to this episode was taken from the original pilot.
Title: "Fly the Unfriendly Skies"
The title of this episode is a twist on the popular United Airlines slogan of the time, "Fly the friendly skies of United".
