The final scene between Bobby and his agent is an all time classic.
22 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think one of the most memorable scenes ever written for a television show is the final scene between Bobby (Jeff Conaway) and his Agent, (Susan Sullivan). Bobby mistakenly believes it his decision and his decision alone deciding whether or not he should continue to carry on his affair with his agent, or just keep their relationship on a business only level.

In a moment of comedic cold tension, both have an opposite take on what is more important when it comes to career versus romance.

The tension keeps building and as Bobby gets more and more nervous and anxious over the possible loss of his career building agent turned woman scorned, he turns into Captain High Pants. Yes, it's as if his body posture has aged 30 years in an instant and this recently proud young stud actor suddenly sports pants that go up to his chest. (not to worry, in the next scene Bobby is back to his dapper self in a pair body hugging jeans).

What Bobby finally does at the end of his encounter with his agent is both sublimely ridiculous, and amazingly pragmatic.

The final minute features two distinct catch lines that are so memorable you may find yourself reciting them from time to time.
