Just before Rob (Dick Van Dyke) is to embark on a skiing trip, Laura (Mary Tyler Moore) has a "Caesar's wife" moment, dreaming that Rob will break every bone in his body if he attempts to ski the big mountains. Despite Laura's premonitions, Rob goes on the trip anyway -- and returns the next day with his entire body (save for his lips!) racked with pain. Though technically he hasn't broken any bones (indeed, he'd gotten injured before he'd even had a chance to ski), Rob isn't about to let Laura know that she was right -- and thus the stage is set for another classic "pain is funny" pantomime set piece!
