Billy Gardell discusses the upcoming episode of "Bob Hearts Abishola" Monday on "The Talk." "Bob’s dad passed away. He died of a heart attack working in the factory on the warehouse floor. And Bob has hit that point in his life where he’s healthier, he’s in love, he’s married and he starts having that question of, you know, I’ve done well, am I going to grind this out and am I going to end like him? So, he kind of walks off the job and is trying to figure out what’s next for him. And his late father, played by the wonderful Joel Murray. Doesn’t get cooler than that guy, appears, and he has this day with this dad, which is really, really nice and sweet. And a credit to our writers because they did it beautifully and I just think it’s a great episode.” On Bob's relationship with Abishola, he shares, "It gets deeper and weirder just like life. It doesn’t matter who you marry, when you marry, you marry that family. I think it’s a common thread for us, you know. We need to get over ourselves, especially in this country right now. Doesn’t matter if that person is black, white, gay, straight, if you’ve got somebody to hold hand with at the end of the day, you win.” He adds, “The beautiful thing about our show, my favorite tweets, we get a lot of interracial couples saying, ‘I’m so grateful to see us in a sitcom’…it feels good to do that.”
