Continuity mistake: In the opening credits where Bob is on the 'el' platform, the train car he is sitting in is different from the one he enters in the scene before. The car he is shown entering is an older car with small windows and the car he is sitting in is a newer model with much larger windows.

Continuity mistake: "Let's Get Away From It Almost": About 2/3 into the episode, Bob pulls out his suitcase to start packing, sets it on the bed and opens it. After being interrupted by their neighbor the scene moves back to the bed where the suitcase is closed again even though no one has gone near it.

Howard Borden: I was, uh, just decorating my Christmas tree and I was wondering, is there a trick to stringing cranberry sauce?



In the opening credits, Bob answers the phone. None of the buttons light up when the phone rings. On that style of phone, the light would indicate which line to answer. The phone is obviously a prop.



While Bob Newhart is a father himself, he was adamant about Bob Hartley not having any children. When the writers told him they wanted to introduce a child in season six, he told them the script was good, and then asked them who was going to play Bob.
