Not only do they share a floor, they also share a receptionist — Carol. Bob's office is right by her desk, so she is often mistaken as only his receptionist. Jerry is the more demanding boss, though.

Bob's patients are a colorful assortment of supporting characters: The cynical Mr. Carlin, milquetoast Mr. Peterson and reserved Mrs. Bakerman.
