    Hi Bob!

    Oh!  You Remember the famous old "Hi, Bob!" drinking game!  -- the one spawned by the original "Bob Newhart Show."  I only learned about the game Years later, and I felt really left out of the whole thing.

    I'll leave this subject as soon as I've paid proper tribute to the three famed "Anything for A Buck" brothers from Newhart's second show "Newhart:"   

    "Hello.  I'm Larry.  This is my brother Darryl.  And this is my other brother Darryl."  (Can't you just See the Darryls, as they each silently "salute" hello to Bob?!)  No matter how bad a day I've had, that memory always puts a smile on my face and a spring in my step! ;-D

    I especially liked Alice for her feminist confidence, and Norton because ... well, who doesn't have a soft spot for the underdog?  

    Ralph and Norton were so much like Oliver Hardy's and Stan Laurel's characters -- a big, blustery guy who thinks he's smart but isn't, and a clueless skinnhy guy who's always saying and doing Really dumb things, thus giving the big guy lots of chances to feel superior.  Meanwhile, we're in the audience, feeling secretly superior ourselves, as we're laughing, with genuine fondness, at both of them.
