* HappilyMarried: Bob and Emily.

to:

* HappilyMarried: Bob and Emily. Theirs is a marriage of equals who respect and support each other (though not without some gentle ribbing) and have (what is strongly implied to be) a very active sex life.



* MandatoryMotherhood: Deliberately subverted. Newhart's response when the producers told him that 'Bob & Emily were going to have a baby' that season has passed into legend: "Sounds great. Now, who are you going to get to play Bob?"

* MandatoryMotherhood: Deliberately subverted. Newhart didn't want his character to be a BumblingDad[[note]]Yes, even in 1972, people were already tired of [[BumblingDad bumbling dads]][[/note]] and as a result, Bob and Emily Hartley became one of television's first working, childless couples. (Pleshette went along with this but was privately trying to get pregnant and wasn't going to avoid carrying a child just for the sake of the show - but she never had any children of her own.) Newhart's response when the producers told him that 'Bob & Emily were going to have a baby' that season has passed into legend: "Sounds great. Now, who are you going to get to play Bob?"

Added DiffLines:

* HyperCompetentSidekick: Carol is extremely good at her job. In one episode, Bob and Jerry give her eight separate instructions on things they need done. Without taking notes, she repeats back everything perfectly. (This will be used years later in an episode of Series/MurphyBrown where she has a guest starring episode as the only secretary Murphy doesn't fire, because she's the only one who was able to keep up with Murphy's hectic personality. Bob shows up on that episode to beg her to come back.)

to:

%%* BilledAboveTheTitle* BilledAboveTheTitle: "BOB NEWHART in The BOB NEWHART Show". Of the rest of the cast, only Suzanne Pleshette was also credited in the opening titles ("Also Starring SUZANNE PLESHETTE"). Everyone else had to settle for billing in the end credits.
