5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best, July 14, 2006
This review is from: The Bob Newhart Show: Season 4 (DVD)
Season 4 contains 24 classic episodes that never fail to deliver. From, here are the episode summaries:

1. The Longest Good-Bye - Emily is less than impressed by Bob's legendary college chum, the Peeper--an inveterate jokester who arrives to spend a day and then stays a week.

2. Here's Looking at You, Kid - Howard looks to Bob for moral support when he proposes to Ellen at a crowded restaurant.

3. Death of a Fruitman - The group is angry at Mr. Gianelli for missing their fourth anniversary party.

4. Change Is Gonna Do Me Good - In an effort to shake Bob out of his domestic rut, Emily suggests that they exchange household duties.

5. The Heavyweights - Carol gets roped into a date with an obnoxious tubbo from Bob's overweight workshop.

6. Carol's Wedding - Bob is skeptical when Carol announces that she's getting married to Larry Bondurant, a travel agent she met less than twelve hours earlier.

7. Shrinks Across the Sea - Bob and Emily host a visiting French psychologist, who arrives in the company of another man's wife.

8. What's It All About, Albert? - Convinced that his psychological counseling has done none of his patients a bit of good, Bob seeks inspiration from his old college professor.

9. Who Is Mr. X? - A seemingly innocuous talk-show host uses Bob as bait when she decides to do a hatchet job on the entire field of psychology.

10. Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time - Bob forms an unlikely alliance when he goes into partnership with a well-heeled playboy psychologist.

11. Over the River and Through the Woods - When Emily flies home for Thanksgiving, Bob joins Jerry, Howard, and Mr. Carlin for a bachelor's feast of Chinese food and beer.

12. Fathers and Sons and Mothers - Bob's mother drops by for an extended visit and begins to drive her son crazy within moments of her arrival.

13. The Article - Bob and Jerry have second thoughts after they agree to let Ellen do a newspaper feature on the drama of life in a big-city medical building.

14. A Matter of Vice-Principal - Emily suddenly finds herself embroiled in grammar school politics when she gets promoted to vice-principal ahead of a teacher with greater seniority.

15. Bob Has to Have His Tonsils Out, So He Spends Christmas Eve in the Hospital - Bob faces another depressing holiday when he's forced to undergo an emergency tonsillectomy on Christmas Eve.

16. No Sale - Bob and Jerry are investment partners in one of Carlin's shady real-estate deals. This one hinges on evicting an old man from a slum tenement.

17. Carol at 6:01 - Carol turns to Bob for help when she begins to feel smothered by her new husband's overly lavish attentions.

18. Warden Gordon Borden - Howard is upset by the arrival of his sibling rival, Gordon--his brother has always taken things from him, and now he's got his eye on Ellen.

19. My Boy Guillermo - Jerry's globe-hopping girlfriend returns to tempt him out of his rut with an offer of marriage and an instant family.

20. Duke of Dunk - Bob counsels an egocentric basketball superstar in the fine art of team playing.

21. Guaranteed Not to Shrink - Carol becomes an overnight psychoanalyst when she enrolls in a night school psychology course.

22. Birth of a Salesman - After Bob counsels Mr. Herd to be more assertive, the milquetoast takes the advice to heart and slaps the therapist with a lawsuit.

23. The Boy Next Door - Howard's ex-wife grants him custody of their son, but Bob and Emily end up spending more time with Howie than his dad does.

24. Peeper - Two - When the Peeper returns in sullen spirits after his wife leaves him, Jerry decides to reacquaint Bob's old chum with the swinging singles' scene.
