Highlight No. 1: One Robinson daughter is called "the hearthrob." The other is, awkwardly, not.
Highlight No. 2: Bob's brother-in-law is named Dude?

Highlight No. 4: When Bob's sister-in-law must name a country-western singer, can't think of one, and guesses "Van Walen." We should really all be watching more Family Feud, guys.

Highlight No. 6: Grape Pie!
Highlight No. 7: Do you suppose that every time the A's got a hit Bob Geren did this:
