  • Carol decides to become a psychologist, expecting Bob to be her mentor. Leads to Bob remembering why he chose psychology--tall, blonde, slender, non-bulky Amy. Carol analyzes everyone ad nauseum, leading to the usual hysteria.

    This is my favorite episode of The Bob Newhart Show. So, so many hilarious lines. Bob is his usual dry self, and Emily shines when she gives Bob a hard time about his college love. Carol's questions to Bob while studying for a test never fail to crack me up. The writers were dead on with this episode, and it's good for playing Hi, Bob, too. If you like this series at all, you really need to see this episode. It will make you long for the days when television was really clever and situation comedy was king. Lord, I miss them!!!
