Not that out of the blue
10 February 2007 | by (South Pasadena, CA) – See all my reviews

The character of Ellen had been introduced in Season Two when Howard met her before she was about to get married to someone else. That was Episode 21 of Season Two and it was called "A Love Story."

The opening title sequence was changed for season three and Bob doesn't come home to Emily, but rather the two arrive home at more or less the same time.

I'm not sure at what point in television, you could have a unmarrried couple cohabitating, although the show had already depicted Jerry and Carol as spending the night with members of the opposite sex.

The "Bob Newhart Show" didn't usually go for big opening and closing episodes.
