Pratfall-prone Rob and his wife Laura, along with wisecracking co-workers Sally and Buddy, continue to combine wit and slapstick. In "October Eve," Laura appears nude in an oil painting being shown at an art gallery, even though she posed fully clothed. In "Dear Mrs. Petrie, your husband is in jail," Rob goes to see an old Army buddy's nightclub act and winds up spending the night in jail. In "My neighbor's husband's other life," Rob and Laura suspect the worst when they spy their friend Jerry Helper dining out with a beautiful blonde. In "I'd rather be bald than have no head at all," Rob thinks he's going bald and tries a barber's secret recipe, which consists of ingredients usually reserved for a salad. In "Teacher's Petrie," Rob is skeptical when Laura's new writing teacher thinks she shows promise. In "My two showoffs and me," the prospect of being the subjects of a national magazine story brings out the egotistical worst in Rob, Sally and Buddy
