* The early episode "Jealousy" has Laura worrying about the fact that Rob keeps having to stay late to rehearse with the show's beautiful guest star. She's all-but convinced that Rob is having an affair, to the point that she actually sneaks over to watch one of the rehearsals...and finds that not only is the actress a perfectly nice, professional lady, but that Rob has been spending their rehearsals telling her all about his family in glowing terms.

* One episode shows a flashback to when Laura came into the office to announce that she was pregnant. At first the only person she meets is Sally (the others are in a meeting). After a little banter, Sally figures out why she's there and immediately calls Rob in. Laura asks how she knew:
-->'''Sally:''' "Your smile. It's obvious you're smiling for two now."

* "The Man from ''Emperor''": Rob's old colleague Drew Patton, a Hugh Hefner-like magazine star, calls him to ask him to repeat an analogy he made earlier. With Laura (who had become increasingly worried about Rob "crumbling" under the pressure of being around beautiful women all day) standing by, Rob repeats the statement: that to some men, the constraints of marriage make it a prison, but to others, it's more like an amusement park that contains "everything fun in life." The producer then asks to speak to Laura.
-->'''Drew Patton''': You know how I said that Rob was either scared or lying or dead[[note]]the only kind of men who wouldn't admit to getting "vicarious kicks" out of his lifestyle[[/note]]?
-->'''Laura''': Yes?
-->'''Drew Patton''': Well, old Rob is none of those things.
-->'''Laura''': Oh? What is he?
-->'''Drew Patton''': He's ''sick''! ''[hangs up]''
-->'''Laura''': Did you hear that? ''He'' thinks that ''you're'' sick! Isn't that wonderful?
-->''They kiss.''

* TheReveal of "Bank Book 6565696".
