Added DiffLines:

* SocietyMarchesOn: One episode was based around Bob getting a pager, and how ridiculous it was for him to think he was important enough to need one.[[note]]Note that it is not quite the same as a beeper, the device Bob had would alert him v that he had a message, whereupon he would call the answering service to get the message.[[/note]] To put it in some perspective, it would be equivalent to him purchasing a cell phone in the early 90s.

* ShownTheirWork: Subtly. Newhart insisted that his character be a psychologist (ie., therapist), not a psychiatrist, as he didn't want to poke fun at serious mental illnesses.

* ShownTheirWork: Subtly. Newhart insisted that his character be a psychologist (ie., therapist), not a psychiatrist, as he didn't want to poke fun at serious mental illnesses.[[note]]Psychiatrists are full medical doctors, generally work with patients who have "true" mental illnesses such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, and prescribe medications for them. A psychologist usually has a different degree than MD, such as a PhD., so they can't prescribe medication, and works with "lesser" issues such as general unhappiness with yourself, as opposed to full clinical depression. That said, most (if not virtually all) psychologists have at least one psychiatrist they work with for those patients who would benefit from medication.[[/note]]

* InformedAttribute: Bob is supposed to be an excellent, well-respected psychologist, but he never seems to get anywhere with his patients - any progress or breakthroughs they make are gone by the next episode.

* MegaMealChallenge: In one episode, Bob and his friends go to a gourmet ice cream shop and one of his friends orders a "Whale," a giant sundae. The singing waiters bring it over with much fanfare. ''"You caaaaan't do it... you caaaan't do it... you can't eat a whale!"'' Bob doesn't want all that attention so he just orders a single scoop of ice cream. But the waiters still make a fuss: ''"Single scooper, single scooper, this man is a party pooper!"''
