Behind The Scenes: Robin and Dr. Phil
Why is Robin at every show taping? Does Dr. Phil walk so fast that he literally drags his wife off the stage? Dr. Phil and Robin set the record straight.
Dr. Phil tells Robin, "We're coming up to the end of the season and you've been at every single show. A lot of people ask if you're going to [keep] going to every single show. What do you say to them?"

"I could not miss a show," says Robin. "I am so proud of [you]!"

"People have wondered a million times why I walk Robin off the stage every time and how that came about," says Dr. Phil. "There's no big story. We were actually doing the first show ever and they asked me, 'How are you going to get off stage? Well, why don't you walk down there and turn right?' And I did. And Robin was sitting right there. I walked by and it seemed totally unnatural that I would walk past my wife like I don't even know her and leave!"
Dr. Phil continues, "Instinctively, I just grabbed Robin and walked off. Everyone said, 'Oh you should keep doing that because it looks normal.' Well, of course it does. You don't walk past your wife like you don't know her! But they keep saying I'm dragging you off the stage too fast. Now, will you tell them the truth?"

"I am so uncomfortable in front of the camera I just want to get out of there," admits Robin. "And I just walk fast."

Dr. Phil explains, "Everyone says, 'Why are you dragging your wife? You're so insensitive!' No, I'm not. I'm just trying to keep up with her!"
