Did Rob prove a husband can fool his wife by disguising his voice, or is Laura just playing along? Though Rob's Italian accent as suave Dr. Benno Benelli sounds more like Bela Lugosi, Laura makes a phone date with the charming imaginary physician. Which is more important to Rob, pride in his comic gifts or faith in Laura's fidelity?
Did You Know?
When Rob calls Laura the second time, pretending to be the Italian, he proposes a meeting for cocktails at 4:00. Laura replies that she can't come at 4:00 and suggests 4:30. This cannot be heard by Buddy and Sally, who are listening to Rob's side of the conversation. Nevertheless, after Rob hangs up, he says they will finish work early, and Buddy asks, 'At 4:30?' even though he couldn't hear Laura change the time. See more

Eh... well, no, I... I suppose not.
Then why ask the question?
