A bobby sock is a type of sock that was especially fashionable in the 1940s and 1950s. Bobby socks had thick uppers that were turned down to form a thick cuff at ankle height. They were sometimes worn by girls as part of a school uniform. They were popular to wear with saddle shoes, loafers, or Oxfords. They periodically come back into fashion when people develop nostalgia for this period in history. Many sock stores carry bobby socks, and they can also be ordered through specialty suppliers and uniform companies, or knitted by hand, for people who are familiar with knitting socks. In addition to being ankle length, bobby socks are also typically ornamented with a layer of lace or other material. The tops of the socks may be designed to fold down to showcase decorative materials, and it is not uncommon to see a bow or similar ornament on the back of the sock. Traditionally, bobby socks are plain white, but patterned and colored versions are available in many regions of the world. The term “bobby socks” appears to date to around 1927, right around the period when it became fashionable and acceptable for women to display their ankles. The “bobby” in “bobby socks” is a bit of an enigmatic figure, as there is no clear explanation for the origins of the name. Some researchers have suggested that it may be related to the “bobby pin” which was in vogue during the same period.
Robert "Bobby" Simone is a fictional character in the television series NYPD Blue. Played by Jimmy Smits he was introduced in the fifth episode of the second season remaining until the fifth episode of the sixth. Simone was introduced to the squad after Andy Sipowicz's former partner, John Kelly, was forced to leave the NYPD in the face of an IAB witch hunt. His previous job had been as a driver for the police commissioner, a role that initially riled Sipowicz. However, Simone explained that he had asked for the job so he could spend more time with his wife as she was dying from cancer. An early bond and friendship between them was strong enough that Andy asked Simone to step in after John Kelly couldn't make it back to New York for Sipowicz's wedding to Sylvia Costas. Bobby and Andy became great friends and partners, although Bobby did not let Andy get away with making racist comments around him. It is later learned that Bobby was a quiet kid whose passion for raising racing pigeons came from his friendship with a retired boxer (who later showed early signs of Alzheimer's), and that he had a flashy older friend named Ray DiSalvo whom he idolized—which came back to haunt him when Ray became a petty criminal and tried unsuccessfully to sell Bobby out to IAB for giving him an implicit warning to avoid a drug bust. In the episode "Prostrate Before The Law", season five episode 19, Simone is dealing with a suspect who assumes he is Puerto Rican. Simone retorts that he is of French and Portuguese descent and that his parents met in Belize. Early on in his time in the squad Simone started a relationship with Diane Russell, another detective at the 15th Precinct. According to NYPD guidelines the police department did not allow such couplings for officers who worked in the same precinct, so the couple kept it quiet up until the point that they were married by a justice of the peace (Lt Arthur Fancy also knew they were dating, but never officially notified the higher-ups about it). Simone earlier had to convince Diane that she had a drinking problem but was a source of strength and comfort for her as she successfully battled the demons in her past. The couple also conceived a child, but Diane had a miscarriage in season 5. In that season's finale, Bobby and Diane were married at City Hall. Shortly after the wedding, Simone contracted a critical heart infection that required a heart transplant. Although the transplant was successful and it initially seemed that Bobby would be discharged from hospital, he developed a Gram-positive bacterial infection which soon spread to his brain and other vital organs, causing a quick decline in his health. Due to his being on immunosuppressants at the time to keep his body from rejecting the heart, his immune system was not strong enough to withstand the infection, and he ultimately died, devastating Diane, Andy, and the rest of the team at the 15th. He was succeeded as Andy's partner by Danny Sorenson. Bobby returned, in an episode of the show's final season, as a spirit offering guidance and comfort to a troubled Andy.

Joey Heric is a fictional, recurring character on The Practice, played by John Larroquette, who won a Primetime Emmy Award for the role in 1998 and was nominated again in 2002. Joey is a wealthy, wisecracking, narcissistic psychopath with a habit of stabbing his gay lovers to death. Despite his psychological problems, he is a brilliant schemer, who delights in and excels at manipulating the legal system for his own benefit. He first appeared as a murder defendant who had hired Bobby Donnell's firm to represent him, while in his second appearance (again as a murder defendant) he chooses to represent himself, with Bobby appointed by the court as second chair. When he returns several years later, he is now a licensed attorney, who hires Bobby's firm to help him with his first murder trial—only for Bobby to discover that Joey's primary motivation in becoming a lawyer is to continue to manipulate the legal system for his own amusement. Larroquette's final appearance as Joey was a cameo in the season six finale, in which Joey appears on the news to publicly hint that he may be the culprit behind the O'Malley shooting—a twist on the firm's infamous misdirection strategy known as "Plan B." Larroquette would eventually join the cast of The Practice's spin-off, Boston Legal, but as a different character, despite the fact that both shows supposedly share the same continuity.
Getting Together is an American musical sitcom, which aired on the ABC during the 1971–72 U.S. television season. It starred Bobby Sherman and Wes Stern as Bobby Conway and Lionel Poindexter, a songwriting duo. The pilot for the series had aired the previous spring as the first-season finale episode of The Partridge Family named "A Knight in Shining Armor", in which Lionel and Bobby were introduced to each other by the Partridges. The unaired version of this episode, entitled "Words And Music", ran 33 minutes, and featured Farrah Fawcett and Pat Boone. The 8 extra minutes of footage was filmed on March 15, 1971. Sherman's and Stern's characters were reportedly based on the real-life songwriting team of Boyce and Hart, who had written hits for The Monkees ("Last Train to Clarksville", "Valleri"), Jay and the Americans ("Come a Little Bit Closer"), and others. New music of course was a staple of the series, provided by much of the same team that created the Partridge Family songs and records. Most of these songs were from the Bobby Sherman album Getting Together, though a few songs were from his other albums (and some songs have never been released).
Robert Steven Singer is a fictional character in The CW Television Network's horror-drama television series Supernatural portrayed by Jim Beaver.

Bobby soxer is a 1940s sociological coinage denoting the fans of Swing music and its creators like singer Frank Sinatra, the first singing teen idol. They were zealous, usually teenage girls and young adult women from about 12 to 25. Fashionable adolescent girls wore poodle skirts and rolled down their socks to the ankle. In high schools and colleges, the gymnasium was often used as a dance floor; however, since street shoes and street detritus might damage the polished wood floors, the students were required to remove their shoes and dance in their bobby socks, thus the phrase 'sock hop'. The adolescent actress Shirley Temple portrayed said type of impressionable adolescent girl in the film, The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer.
