It is hardly surprising that Rob's overbearing, egotistical boss Alan Brady (Carl Reiner) has commissioned a filmed documentary about a "typical" day in his life. Nor is it unusual that Alan wants to film a key scene from the documentary in the living room of Rob (Dick Van Dyke) and Laura (Mary Tyler Moore). But it is highly inconvenient -- and ultimately disastrous -- when Alan and his camera crew insist upon invading the Petrie home on the night that Rob and Laura are throwing an anniversary party for Jerry and Millie Helper (Jerry Paris, Ann Morgan Guilbert). Perennial dumb blonde Joyce Jameson figures prominently into the (literally) gut-wrenching climax of this episode.
