    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Mr. Peterson: And I think I speak for the entire group, Dr. Hartley, when I say, thank you for speaking for the entire group.
        Mr. Gianelli: Yeah, we're sorry we let you down.
        Bob: You didn't let me down. I think the important thing is that you learned something from this experience.
        Michelle: Oh, I did. I learned a lot.
        Bob: What's that?
        Michelle: Mainly that I gotta lose ten pounds. My father said I looked as big as a horse.
        Mrs. Bakerman: Maybe he was watching Gunsmoke.

      • Bob: You don't have to be polite. It was horrible. It was probably the worst program ever on television.
        Howard: No it wasn't! The fourth episode of My Mother the Car was.

      • Bob: Alright then, we'll go on television. (group cheers)
        Bob: As long as you remember you're willing to open up and discuss your problems.
        Mr. Carlin: I'm willing, Dr. Hartley. I feel like I could even discuss that personal problem of mine. You know the one we discussed in my private session?
        Bob: Which, which one is that?
        Mr. Carlin: I'm not going to say it in front of these people.

      • Bob: How 'bout, how 'bout you ah Mr. Carlin, how, how do you feel at this moment?
        Mr. Carlin: I feel uh, I feel um...
        Bob: Good Mr. Carlin try to get in touch with those feelings.
        Mr. Carlin: I feel like throwing up!

    • NOTES (6)

      • "Hi, Bob"-ometer: One, from Howard. 49 for the series.

      • Nick at Nite used the "Let me get this clear, you want to be on television?" segment between Bob and the Group from this episode in advertisements announcing N@N's adding The Bob Newhart Show to its nightly schedule in 1993.

      • Changes to the sets: The Hartley's apartment has new carpeting and hardwood floors, the sofas have been reupholstered, the lamp by Bob's chair is new, the outside of the front door is now brown, the bedroom has been redone in brown tones, and the hallway is now gold. The exit sign at the office is now flush against the wall and Bob has a new painting on the wall by his diplomas.

      • New title song this season.

      • The on-air announcer mentions that the show is being broadcast on WTTW Chicago, which is Chicago's actual PBS station.

      • A repeat of this episode was the last episode to air on CBS, September 2, 1978.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Allusion: Bob: You don't have to be polite. It was horrible. It was probably the worst program ever on television.
        Howard: No it wasn't! The fourth episode of My Mother the Car was.

        My Mother the Car aired on NBC during the 1965-1966 season. It is notorious for being a short-lived show built on a flimsy premise.
