Dr. Marvin snaps, and tries to kill Bob, by tying him to a chair in the woods with bombs. He dupes Bob into his trap by saying that it's "Death Therapy." Bob, thinking that it really is some kind of therapy, escapes, and accidentally blows up the Marvin's house. Dr. Marvin ends up losing his mind, and Bob marries Dr. Marvin's sister Lily which snaps Dr. Marvin out of his psychosis. Before the credits, we find out that Bob became a psychologist, famous for his book "Death Therapy."

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dr. Marvin tells Bob to "take a vacation from his problems", there are white sailboats on the lake in back of Bob but when the scene shifts back to Dr. Marvin, the boats are gone, then they once again, magically reappear.

Trivia: Bill Murray and Richard Dreyfus did not like each other in real life, and were actually hostile to each other on several occasions during the shooting. This real-life hostility may have actually fed the on-screen chemistry of their characters.
