Goofs

Bob explains his relationship with Prof. Dreeben to Emily as though Emily had never met the Professor or even heard of him before. When Prof. Dreeben arrives a few minutes later, he recognizes Emily at once and speaks to her as though they were already reasonably well-acquainted.

Howard, not Emily, asks who the professor is and Bob's comments are directed toward him. Emily actually makes a comment about Bob's experience in his class. When the professor arrives, Bob greets him with "you remember Emily" so, of course he knows her. And she knows him, replying with "you're as charming as ever." See more »
