Bobby Ewing Syndrome - Term coined by Star Trek fan Ross A. Filmore from Columbus, Ohio.

Patrick Duffy as Bobby Ewing in the Shower - DALLAS

Accordingly, the Bobby Ewing Syndrome (BEEs) are "episodes in which we find out that a good deal of the story has taken place in the mind of our hero.

The name Bobbie Ewing (Patrick Duffy), of course, refers to the CBS TV show DALLAS in which an entire season of the program took place in the mind of Pam Ewing. Consequently, when she wakes from a dream, she finds Bobbie alive and taking a shower.

Some classic Star Trek BEEs included:

  • STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION: "Remember Me;" "Future Imperfect"; "The Inner Light"; "Ship in a Bottle"; "Frame of Mind"; and "Eye of the Beholder"
  • DEEP SPACE NINE: "Whispers and Distant Voices"
  • STAR TREK VOYAGER: "Nemesis"

And of course, we can't forget the all time great BEE from the final scene of the the rural comedy NEWHART/CBS/1982-90 when Chicago psychologist, Dr. Robert "Bob" Hartley (Bob Newhart) from the urban sitcom series THE BOB NEWHART SHOW/CBS/1972-78 wakes up from a bad dream claiming he had lived the last eight years in a Vermont Inn as an innkeeper named Dick Loudon with Joanna, his beautiful wife (Mary Frann) who wore a lot of sweaters.
