In one episode it was very close to time for Laura to deliver their baby. There was a scene where they were going to bed for the night, and when the scene opened, Rob was already in bed with the covers pulled up to his chin. Laura got in bed and pulled the blankets over herself, said good night and turned off the light.
There was a moment where the TV screen was dark, then you heard Laura say, “Rob?” as though she wanted to ask him something.
Suddenly, the light goes back on, he sits up and as he does he grabs his hat off the headboard where he had placed it, and as he jumps out of bed you see that he is fully dressed, sports coat and tie and everything, and he grabs a suitcase and is almost out the bedroom door before Laura can call him back and tell him it’s not time yet.
He was ready!
