It's the Christmas season again, and Carol is depressed over the prospect of spending the holidays with her overbearing parents in Iowa. As a result, Carol ends up celebrating Christmas Eve in the home of Bob and Emily Hartley. Some celebration -- it's more like an emergency therapy session when Carol launches on an uncontrollable crying jag sparked by unpleasant family memories. Featured in the cast is Bob Newhart's real-life father-in-law, character actor Bill Quinn, as the mailman. First telecast December 21, 1974, "Home Is Where the Hurt Is" was written by Tom Patchett and Jay Tarses.
