The name of this Bob Newhart Show episode is proof incarnate that the series' producers were growing tired of coming up with clever titles that would never show up on screen. Yes, Bob is in the hospital on Christmas Eve, and he's not the only one who is miserable. Merie Earle makes another appearances as octogenarian Mrs. Loomis, while Graham Jarvis plays Dr. Bickwell. Written by Tom Patchett and Jay Tarses, the episode originally aired on December 20, 1975.
