* SeductionProofMarriage: Played with in "The Man from Emperor". The titular man, an old colleague of Rob's named Drew Patton who has become a playboy, asks Rob to write a humor column for the magazine. Laura is not at all happy about this as she is afraid her husband will "crumble" under the pressure of being around beautiful girls all day. This only worsens as Rob decides he should get a look at the workplace. However, ultimately Rob turns down the position and his own personal office and secretary and being around beautiful girls all day to remain faithful to Laura. Patton finds this "sick."
