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 and acted for a television show is the final scene between Bobby (Jeff Conaway) and his Agent, (Susan Sullivan).

Bobby mistakenly believes it is his decision and his decision alone deciding whether or not he should continue to carry on his affair with his new agent, or just keep their relationship on a business only level and end the romance.

In a moment of comedic cold tension, both have an opposite take on which is more important, sex or business, when it comes to romance versus Bobby's career.

The tension keeps building and as Bobby's turmoil over the possible loss of his "career building agent" turned "woman scorned", he turns into Captain High Pants. It's as if Bobby's 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 former 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.
