Rob is asked to write an amusing bulletin for the PTA bazaar. Richie is having a difficult time explaining to his friends just what his father does at work and he's taking out his frustration on his father. Laura thinks it would be a good idea for Rob to take Richie with him to the office for a day so he can see first hand what his dad does. Rob is skeptical this will work but agrees to give her plan a try.

Filmed in December 1958 (a year and a half prior to its being run on network television as an episode of "The Comedy Spot"). The episode was a pilot episode intended to convince a network to pick it up as a regular half hour series, but the networks were not interested in it. By the time it had aired on "The Comedy Spot", creator Carl Reiner was already rewriting his thirteen "Head of the Family" episodes he'd written earlier to make the switch from a single camera show (as the "Head of the Family" pilot had been shot) to a three camera live audience shot series (which is how "The Dick Van Dyke Show" would be shot) at new producer, Sheldon Leonard's, advice.
