    What is Abishola doing at Bob's workplace? Doesn't she have a job?

    One theory is that since nurses are needed at all times, perhaps she took the day off to take care of Bob's mom. And mess up his life. There's no way these two are going to end up together.

    So if the one guy from Nigeria has a degree, why was he not promoted after Bob put him and the other Nigerian man in charge?

    Same reason why doctors from Africa work in gas stations. In this case, Bob didn’t know.

    Well, he finally did speak up. He should have said something earlier.

    On "Sunnyside" a doctor drove a cab. I've forgotten which country in Africa he was from. He did practice medicine in some episodes of the series, hoping he wouldn't get caught, but his patients had no other options.

    I feel like I missed an episode. It doesn't seem like Bob and Abishola are far enough along for what happened last night.

    Also, Abishola looks really strange jumping up and down. It doesn't fit her personality.

    And while she wasn't this way to Bob, I was not surprised when the American nurse told her what people were saying about her.

    Wasn’t she? I seem to remember Bob cutting through the formality.

    Except that, I thought that the jumping was almost like a parody of jumping, the most that she would do.

    The jumping was perfect. As in: I am doing this because someone said I should, but it makes no sense.

    I thought the jumping was perfectly in-character for her because it was so awkward.


    I agree that this week's episode felt out-of-place from the recent episodes. It felt like they wanted to do a Valentine's episode, so they did, whether it fit the continuity or not.

    Wasn't the last episode the one where Bob got drunk and crashed the forklift at the warehouse? You'd expect there to be some repercussions from that. Also, last episode, Dot was finally feeling well enough to go into the office, and this week, she was back to being bedridden.

    I put this in the Sam and Diane bucket... you get them together and then the show goes downhill. It's the tension and ALMOST getting together that makes the show work as well as it does.

    I don’t see it that way. The dynamic is different. This is more Mike and Molly than Cheers.

    I never liked Diane. I liked Rebecca.

    If she had been the way she was described nothing would have ever happened between them.

    Although I could be remembering it wrong. But I sure don't remember her being that uptight.

    Now if there is supposed to be a romance, Queen Lulu from last night's "God Friended Me" would be a better candidate in my view.

    I watch The Neighborhood and Bob ❤Abishola. When comparing the two I have to admit that the writing on Bob's show is far superior to The Neighborhood. I really like Chuck Lorre's track record. (Mom, Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, 2 1/2 Men, The Kominsky Method).

    I'm at least glad someone on network TV thinks sex should wait until marriage.

    I'm still having trouble seeing these two as a couple.

    CBS promotes this show using a photo where Abishola has short hair and even her face looks different. She did one of the African American History Month lessons looking like that. Their history is our history, she says. Well, technically not since she apparently came from Africa, but she's American now.

    I don't care for Bob's attitude toward religion. It's funny, but he was kind of disrespectful. On the other hand, my church isn't like Abishola's either. People are happy but not judgmental. We had one pastor over 20 years ago who seemed to want to save everyone and, while he didn't come right out and say it, we knew what he was thinking. He didn't last long.

    I was pleased with Bob's attitude toward his ex-wife in the next episode. It was really funny but not realistic the way Abishola and her friend rushed through the building. I want to know where they tape that show. Do they reuse the same set of stairs or is the building really that tall?

    I thought his attitude was typical of people who are non-observant and cynical. Could he have been more respectful? Sure, but he also had to bite his tongue more than once.

    Maybe the same set of stairs from BBT? :D
