In this Rashomon-inspired episode, an angry Rob (Dick Van Dyke) storms out of the house after a big fight with Laura (Mary Tyler Moore). The camera then zeroes in on the fishbowl in the Petrie living room, where a pair of goldfish accurately recall the events leading up to the argument -- and it is painfully clear that both parties were equally at fault. Of course, the separate versions of the incident told by Rob and Laura tend to cast themselves in the best possible light, with Laura coming off as an eternally smiling saint in her flashback, and Rob oozing the charm of Fred Astaire in his!
