Storyline

A series of events occur that make Laura believe that Rob no longer sees her as the beautiful, young and lovable wife she hopes she still is. These events include Rob wanting to sleep in on his day off instead of waking up to eat breakfast with her, Rob being irked by her romantically playful attempts to wake him up, Rob not caring how he looks around her, Rob calling her his "old lady", and Rob pulling out a white hair from her head.

Trivia

Sally mentions her boyfriend "Woodrow Glimscher" when she and Buddy and Rob are in the office. Obviously the precursor to "Herman Glimscher" as she also mentions that he has a "mother problem". Interestingly, she also mentions her date for the night as "Herman" who Woodrow's mother introduced her to. She describes him as "Bleechh". In later shows, she references Herman similarly.

Goofs

Sally asks Rob if he has a single brother, and Rob says that his brother is married. However, Stacey, Rob's brother (whom we meet later in the season) is not married and indeed does develop an on-again/off-again relationship with Sally. See more »
