Bob has a women only therapy group for women to improve their self confidence. The women tell Bob to bring Emily to the next meeting - to get her point of view. But, Bob's sorry he took their advice, because, when he brings her, he's kicked out of the meeting; for being 'like other men'. Written by

The 3rd, and final appearance of Rhoda Gemignani
, who plays Joan Rossi in this episode. Ms. Gemignani played a character very similar; 'Ms. Rossi' - in the episode, Oh, Brother, and prior to this, she played (a different, but very similar) 'Joan Rossi', in Emily In For Carol., but, even though they share the same surname, they're unrelated. Both characters were extremely neurotic woman, with 'men issues'; in Emily In For Carol, the character (Joan Rossi) was a prospective temp secretary, who thought every man, every doctor, lusted for her. In Oh, Brother, the character's only known by her surname - Ms. Rossi - and she's a new patient, who was on a horrible date with a man who took her to a nudist club. In this episode, Ms Gemignani, again plays (a character named) 'Joan Rossi, but, this one didn't come looking for a temp secretarial position; she's just a patient, with... 'men issues', and 'hair issues', as well, which is interesting, as in the first 2appearances of Ms. Gemignani, she had a very... distinctive hair style. In this episode, she doesn't wear it, but, still, hair IS an issue for her. See more
