Synopsis: Bob (Newhart) is confused by the on-again off-again relationship that Harlan (John Cygan) has with his psychotic girlfriend Shayla (Christine Dunford).
Featured Feline: This episode features one of the most priceless moments with Otto the cat. In the opening scene, Bob is trying to get Otto to shake his hand.
His wife, Kaye (Carlene Watkins), points out that he’s been trying to get Otto to shake hands for five years and assures him that cats aren’t like dogs. “You can’t teach them tricks.”
At this point their daughter Trisha (Cynthia Stevenson) enters the room and greets Otto, who automatically shakes hands with her. Trisha walks away, leaving everyone stunned.
Final Mewsings: Maybe Trisha is the only family member Otto could train!
