Episode Info

In the conclusion of a two-part story arc, Bob is still fretting over the breakup of his parents' marriage. Counting on the holiday spirit to heal old wounds, Bob invites both his mother and father to Christmas dinner at the Hartley apartment, hoping to bring them back together (provided, of course, they aren't too busy to attend). Martha Scott and Barnard Hughes repeat their roles as Martha and Herb Hartley. Written by Gordon and Lynne Farr, "Making Up Is the Thing to Do" originally, and appropriately, aired on December 25, 1976.
