Bob's patients play a bigger role this season, and in no episode is that more apparent than the first show of the season called "Last TV Show", in which his group talks him into holding one of their sessions on Television. They are also very funny in "Mutiny on the Hartley" when they try to continue without Bob after he raises his rates. Bob's sister Ellen (Pat Finley) makes her first appearance near the end of the season in "A Love Story" where she is engaged to be married until Howard enters her life.
There are numerous great episodes this season beyond those I have already mentioned, such as "Mister Emily Hartley" where an IQ test shows that Emily's is significantly higher than Bob's, "T. S. Elliot" where Mr. Carlin takes Carol out on a Date (Shirley O'Hara's first appearance as Debbie occurs in this episode), and "By The Way...You're Fired" where Carol's new romance interferes with her job duties. As with the first season there are 24 episodes, but in this season they are smoother and more consistently funny.
There are many well known guest stars in this season. Teri Garr plays Miss Brennan, a receptionist. Mariette Hartley plays Marilyn Dietz who is fought over by Howard and Jerry after Emily sets them both up with her. Katherine Helmond plays Dr. Webster, a marriage counselor that Bob and Emily go to when their marriage seems to be stuck in a rut.Read more ›
