36! 24! 36! Dick! (2)

The Solomon men embark on a country-wide search for Sally that ends at the Super Bowl, where the lethal lovelies have planned to unleash their most devastating weapon yet -- the ultimate beer commercial, designed to enslave mankind into coughing up the rest of their pricy consumer goods. In the supervixens' lair, the Solomon men seem defeated, but with the help of Sally, who only pretended to turn against them, and Venusian Mascha (Cindy Crawford), who's been won over by Harry's simple charms, Dick and company jam the commercial broadcast, explode the mother ship, and convince the supervixens that a career in modeling might suit them. Meanwhile, Albright and Nina's plans to attend the Super Bowl are thwarted when the Solomons steal their tickets to gain access to the Venusians, and back in Rutherford, Officer Don throws a decidedly low-key Super Bowl party.

Pickles and Ice Cream

Sally, intrigued by the "cult of pregnancy" and the strange bonding rituals that occur between its members, pretends to be pregnant in order to share the experience. Dick, inititially skeptical, is entranced by the power of ushering in a new human life when he helps to deliver the baby of a woman in Sally's Lamaze class. Sally, however, is struck by the immense responsibility that motherhood entails, and vows to wait until she's ready before experiencing it for herself. Harry's pet from the home planet, Pickles, tracks him down across galaxies, with one big change -- he's assumed human form.

Stuck with Dick

Dick's attempts to woo Mary back falter when the two of them become trapped in the university library for the weekend. Mary's initial resistance to rekindling her romance with Dick begins to melt because of (a) several magnums of cheap champagne, and (b) her realization that Dick was the only person to check her dissertation out of the library in the last fifteen years. Realizing Dick is missing, and fearing the worst, Sally, Harry, and Tommy break into Albright's house to look for him and, if necessary, physically drag him away from Mary. Instead, Sally winds up hosting a Tupperware party for all of Mary's friends, filling what had been a void in her life with her first experience at being a hostess.

Portrait of Tommy as an Old Man

Tommy, tired of having to handle all of the "kid" duties (when in reality he's the oldest member of the mission), decides to retire. After he spends some time at a retirement home, he changes his mind, realizing that a big part of what makes you old is acting -- and being treated -- like your old. Dick, thinking that Mary is anguished because she never got a chance to fulfill her fantasy of becoming a torch singer, tries to help her to realize that dream.

Meanwhile, Harry becomes a shock-talk jock at the Pendleton University radio station, but when his caustic ways spread from his listeners to Tommy, Nina, and Officer Don, he finds himself with neither audience nor friends.

The Physics of Being Dick

When Dick attempts (and fails) to convince the students at Tommy's high school Career Day that physics is exciting, he reconsiders his choice of occupations. When Don lets him participate in a police interrogation, however, Dick learns that an education in physics can be used to succeed in a variety of pursuits -- for instance, baffling a suspect into confessing. Also, Dick orders Sally and Harry to get their own jobs. Harry tries his hand as a sympathetic bartender who ministers to his customers' psyches as much their thirsts. Sally becomes a research assistant for Albright, but concentrates more on buttering up her new boss than on doing thorough work, a skill that keeps her from getting fired when her shoddy translations cause embarrassment when Albright uses them in a speech.

Just Your Average Dick (1)

After research shows them that they've failed in their mission of blending in as a normal, average American family, the Solomons strive to correct the problem by moving into a bland, beige apartment, dressing less oddly, and eschewing all that has made them stand out. Sally joins the tenants' association and becomes obsessed with making everyone in the complex adhere to the strict guidelines imposed by the group. When Dick meets a visiting professor whom Mary finds charming because of his eccentricity, Dick realizes he has erred in abandoning his individuality. He, Tommy, and Harry conspire to get Sally to hoist herself on the petard of her own narrow-mindedness, getting them all evicted so they can return to their beloved attic apartment.

Dick and the Other Guy (2)

Visiting professor Liam Neesam (John Cleese) is better than Dick at everything -- darts, physics, golf, cooking, and especially romancing Mary. Dick gets more and more frustrated until he realizes that the reason Liam's so good at everything is that he's an alien. Dick is on the verge of telling Liam that he's an alien, too, when Liam tells Dick he's decided not to vaporize the Earth because Dick is such a shining example of the human race, To save the Earth, Dick keeps his mouth shut -- no easy feat. Sally has a series of dating woes that come to a head when she thinks that even Officer Don has lost interest in her. Harry and Tommy try to help her find another man, but Sally, obsessed with finding out what has replaced her in Don's affections, presses on -- only to learn that his new mistress is a gal called "karaoke."

Sally and Don's First Kiss

Sally turns to romance novels for inspiration when it's time for her first kiss with Officer Don. Unfortunately, whether they try it on a windy, moonlit bluff or in the Solomons' kitchen, the kiss just isn't special enough. Sally becomes resigned to breaking up with Don, but when she goes to the police stable to tell him, the magical combination of horses, thunder, lightning, and Don's newfound forcefulness combine to make Sally realize Don's the guy for her after all. Dick is perturbed because the cafeteria lady charges him -- and only him -- for crackers. Realizing he has no control over her inexplicable dislike for him allows him to free himself from being bothered by her unjust treatment. Harry graduates from night school, and he and fellow classmates Mrs. DeGuzman and Larry reminisce about all the great times they had together during their ten-week enrollment.

When Aliens Camp

Dick takes the family camping as a mission bonding activity. At the campsite, the family and Mary all become angry with Dick -- the family because he lies about bringing Mary along after he tells them it's "family only," and Mary because he tells her the family doesn't mind she's coming along. After they all cast him out, Dick goes off by himself and attempts to form a new society with a troop of Beaver Scouts he encounters. The Solomons assume Dick is lost and set out to find him. They (especially Sally, who resents her command being usurped) initially reject Mary's offers of help in finding Dick... until they realize she knows a lot more about the outdoors than they do.

The Tooth Harry

Mary is asked to appear in a new Pendelton University promotional video. Dick whines until he is also allowed to participate. Unfortunately, neither of them shares the director's vision of what their "performances" should be like, and they are unceremoniously replaced by other "actors" (including Tommy). Harry volunteers to drive Nina to the dentist. A romance develops, but fizzles when the money Harry leaves under Nina's pillow as a Tooth Fairy reward is misinterpreted, and Nina, highly offended, throws him out. Officer Don gives Sally a key to his apartment, but his glee soon turns to gloom when she starts seeing the place as less of a love nest and more of a one-woman party zone that she can trash whenever she wants to. When Don calls her attention to her inconsiderate behavior, she apologizes -- but he still takes back his key.

Eat, Drink, Mary (1)

It's the second anniversary of the first time Dick slept with Mary, and love is in the air. Dick decides to throw a party for himself and Mary, Harry and Vicki Dubcek (Jan Hooks), who's back in town and ready to pick up their romance where it left off, and Sally and Officer Don. When the family realizes that Tommy's been hiding some serious gourmet cooking skills from them, Dick insists that Tommy prepare a festive menu for the lovers. At the party, Dick realizes that Mary has no idea what they're celebrating, and he begins to have doubts about the future of their relationship. Just as Dick and Mary are settling their problems in one room, and Sally and Don are about to consummate their love in another, they're all interrupted by Vicki, screaming that Harry's been abducted by her psychotic ex-boyfriend, Randy (Phil Hartman), who's come to town to eliminate his competition by kidnapping him. In Randy's car, Harry receives a transmission from the Big Giant Head, potentially compromising the aliens' identities.

There's only one problem - due to Dick's failure to turn in his status reports, the Big Giant Head is punishing him by impairing his brain functions, making him quite confused and quite a handful to look after. Harry has been sold to a sideshow, where its Svengali-like owner (Larry Miller) convinces him that his family doesn't care about him, but here, he will be beloved by the crowd, and embraced by his new family: his fellow freaks. The solomons find Harry and try to convince him to send the status report - which would return Dick to normal- and come home with them.

Power Mad Dick

Albright is promoted to dean, and Dick assumes that he has acquired power by association, which he immediately begins to abuse. When Dick goes too far by firing cafeteria lady Lucy, with whom he has a long-standing feud, Albright appeases Lucy by hiring her as her secretary - and gatekeeper in charge of keeping Dick out of Mary's office, much to Dick's dismay. Also, it's finally time for Sally to lose her virginity to Officer Don, and afterwards, she's confused by the fact that for the first time, there's something in her life she wants to keep private from the family - no matter how hard they try to pry the juicy details out of her.

Feelin' Albright

Now that Mary is dean, Dick's intoxication with his access to her power gives way to frustration that he's just her "spouse," powerless and ornamental. To appease him, she puts him in charge of a meaningless vanity project - a charity fashion show. When the other professors praise him effusively even though his fundraiser fails, Dick realizes that they're only using him to suck up to Mary, and he demands that they treat him with the contempt that he actually deserves. Sally freaks out when she realizes that she's not Don's first serious girlfriend, and becomes obsessed with seeing how she measures up to his past paramours, until she finally realizes that nothing matters but what the two of them have now. Harry and Tommy try to strike it rich with a neighborhood lemonade stand, then quit when they realize it's a cute thing for kids to do, but a creepy thing for adults.

Collect Call for Dick

The Solomons confront the collector mentality when they discover Fuzzy Buddies - highly collectible small plush animal toys. Sally enjoys the thrill of the hunt and the prospects for financial rewards, Harry just thinks they're cute, but for Dick it's deeper - he enjoys the sensation of collecting until it gets to be like a drug for him, and his family and friends have to do an intervention. In an effort to instill "pep" into Tommy, the basketball coach forces him to become the team mascot, "Hootie the Owl." Initially contemptuous, Tommy finds that folks (especially cute cheerleaders) dig him when he's in costume, and the power goes to his head. When the team loses, Tommy, high on school spirit, tackles the coach, landing him in the principal's office.

What's Love Got To Do, Got To Do With Dick?

Dick, frustrated because busy dean Mary never seems to have time for him, finds himself increasingly enchanted with his new officemate, Jennifer (Laurie Metcalfe). Confused by his feelings, he vows to resist the attraction, but it's too much for him - they kiss. Sally tries to fix Nina up with Don's friend Eric, then takes it as a personal insult when it doesn't turn out to be a love match. She schemes to bring them back together, but the only passion she manages ito ignite between them is their rabid dislike for each other - hardly a satisfying victory for Sally. Tommy fixes up the "Love Tester" machine at the bar where Hary works, then is miffed that he can't make it go higher than "Cold Fish."

I Am Dick Pentameter!

Dick tells Mary he thinks they should see other people, and she laughingly agrees, not knowing he already has a candidate lined up--new officemate Jennifer (Laurie Metcalf). Dick is fascinated by Jennifer's intoxicating giggle, her adorable penchant for rhyming, and the braveway she copes with her numerous food allergies. Just as a furious Albright learns of Dick's new dalliance, he begins to grow less and less enchanted with Jennifer's eccentricities (particularly the rhyming), and to regret ever having ended things with Mary. Meanwhile, Sally, Harry, and Tommy question the limited functions of the kitchen and the living room, and decide to design an uber-room with the best elements of each--"the Klivingtchen."

Dick's lack of enchantment with Jennifer (Laurie Metcalf) has grown into full-blown loathing. Just as he's about to break up with her, however, he discovers that his romantic unavailability is making Albright want him back. He decides to continue playing Jennifer against Mary, not only to get Mary back, but to make her want to spend even more time with him than before their breakup. Finally, Jennifer breaks up with him, but Dick pretends they're still dating--a tactic that blows up in his face when Jennifer and Albright compare notes. When Officer Don's atttempts to teach Sally how to bowl are met with her alarming disregard for the rules and traditions of the sport he loves, he resorts to sneaking behind her back to bowl with Tommy and Harry.

Dick is mortified to learn that Mary posed nude for art photos twenty years ago, and vows to track down every last print so no one can see her naked but him.

Harry wants to know what all the fuss over nudity is about, and decides to try going naked twenty-four hours a day.

When he mistakenly thinks it¹s midnight a few minutes early, he embraces Mary and dances with her in the snow -- a perfect moment that he later realizes was not only his most meaningful act of 1998, but also a lovely way to start 1999. Harry hires Larry and Mrs. DeGuzman to work at Happy Doug¹s Bar with him, but they¹re both so dang lazy, he fires them both on New Year¹s Eve. Officer Don gets upset that Sally takes advantage of his nice-guy nature, and he lays down the law -- her cutesy, little-girl cajoling will no longer work on him. Sally realizes that with her feminine appeal comes a great deal of responsibility for using it benevolently, and she vows to do better in the new year. Tommy, the party coordinator for Happy Doug¹s big celebration, is completely frazzled by the enormous responsibility of helping Rutherford ring in the new year.

Two-Faced Dick

Responding to a three-year-old request from Sally that she be given a male body, the Big Giant Head switches Sally¹s body with Dick¹s. Each of them has to cope with all the thorny details of gender reassignment, including such specifics as how to deal with men¹s catcalls, and where to find cute shoes in Dick¹s size. Plus, each of them has to successfully maintain the other¹s romantic relationship. They each get as far as a kiss, but before things go any further, their request to switch back is granted, leaving them both far more knowledgeable about what it¹s like to be a member of the opposite sex. Also, vacationing Doug leaves Harry in charge of the bar, which turns ugly when some tough-looking bikers start hanging out there. Just when Harry and Tommy have decided that the bikers aren¹t such bad fellows after all, they rob the place, leaving it in a shambles.

Dick Solomon of the Indiana Solomons

When Dick gets a misaddressed invitation, he decides to pack up Mary and the family, head to Indiana, and experience what a family reunion is like. Expected to find warmth, love, and support, he is upset to learn he's walked into the middle of a forty-year-old feud. After Mary's suggested strategy of repression fails, Dick realizes that family isn't always perfect, but they're all you've got, so you might as well like it. Harry bonds with Uncle Abe (Jack Carter) to the point where he absorbs his knowledge of family history, his love of cigars, his raspy voice, and his worldly wisdom. Sally is thrilled when she develops a sisterly relationship with cousin Michelle, and dejected when Michelle's real sister arrives to usurp her. Tommy thinks he's found a love connection with cousin Janine, but doesn't understand why she's creeped out by his advances--and devastated when he tells her their love isn't forbidden because she's actually adopted.

Dick and Taxes

Dick¹s never paid taxes, and after trying to fill out the forms himself, he enlists Mary¹s help. When he sees how much he owes, he decides to be the only American ever to think of the brilliant idea of cheating on his taxes. When Dick gets an audit notice, Tommy has to fudge an explanation for what each family member has been doing for the past six years. The auditor, however, doesn¹t buy any of it -- even the ³we¹re aliens² defense, which he¹s heard before. The Solomons agree to pay their hefty tax bill, and thank their lucky stars their true identities are still a secret. As part of the tax deception, Sally pretends she had a failed home business -- a hair salon -- but when she puts up the sign, women start pouring in. Sally enjoys the camaraderie and the gossip, but never quite gets the hang of cutting hair, and with no repeat business, the salon fails for real.

Sally Forth

When Sally tells Officer Don she can¹t take living with Dick, Harry, and Tommy anymore, he assumes that she wants him to propose. Sally realizes, however, that what she really wants is to start living as an independent woman, and they tearfully break off their engagement. When Dick has a tenant-landlord dispute with the Dubceks, he casts Harry out of the family for consorting with the enemy. The situation escalates to the point where Dick, frozen and filthy, is reduced to squatting in his apartment without benefit of heat or lights. The feud ends when Dick realizes he was so preoccupied that he didn¹t pay attention to an important milestone in Sally¹s life -- her all-too-brief engagement. When Alissa, the girl of his dreams, gets detention, Tommy works hard to get punished as well, in the hopes that it will provide him with the perfect opportunity to ask her out.

Paranoid Dick

Albright¹s feeling a little uncertain about her waning power at the college, and Dick eggs her on into full-blown paranoia. As a result, she gets caught breaking into another professor¹s office looking for evidence of a nonexistent conspiracy against her, and winds up losing her deanship. Meanwhile, Vicki Dubcek convinces Sally that the perfect thing to help her get over her breakup with Don is a weekend of riverboat gambling on the Cincinnati Queen. Vicki and Sally engage in the rituals of backstage flirtation with a seductive Neil Diamond impersonator. Harry manages to win big at gambling without getting hooked, but loses all of his winnings to the lure of the casino gift shop.

The House That Dick Built

Dick feels like his control over the mission is falling to pieces when Sally decides to move out, and Harry considers having a baby with Vicki Dubcek. Dick tries to sabotage Sally¹s attempts to find a new place, but Sally decides to rent the apartment over Mrs. Dubcek¹s garage, Dick breaks in, posing as an intruder, to scare Sally into moving back home, but she beats the tar out of him. Meanwhile, Harry¹s debating whether or not he should have a baby with Vicki because he¹s unsure, both of his and Vicki¹s parenting abilities, and of the consequences of human/alien interbreeding. The two of them drop in on the house where Tommy¹s helping Alissa baby-sit so Harry can take the baby for a 'test drive.' When he sees how good Vicki is with the baby, he knows everything¹s going to be fine. Also, Tommy tries to figure out whether or not he's officially Alissa's boyfriend.

Superstitious Dick

Dick receives a chain letter, but hesitates to discard it when he sees all of the ill fortune that befalls Mary after she scoffs and tosses hers out. When Dick does throw his away, he worries that he won't receive the prestigious physics grant he's applied for, and becomes obsessed with oddball charms and superstitious behaviors he thinks will bring him luck. What he doesn't realize until too late is that his weird behavior itself has caused him to lose the grant. Sally discovers the wonders of the Hardware Stop Superstore with the help of hunky and extremely competent employee Justin, and begins concocting problems just to spend time with him. Harry, whose orange shirt looks exactly like the Hardware Stop uniform, is baffled when other customers keep asking him to help them make keys, weigh bags of nails, and answer hardware questions. Also, chagrined that Alissa seems to have a massive crush on the Rutherford Ice Hogs' star hockey player, Tommy becomes concerned that he's not manly enough.

Y2dicK

Dick, who's never figured out computers, decides it's time to get plugged in. He discovers e-mail and the internet, and withdraws completely from the physical world, relying on take-out food, chat rooms, and live video feeds, and shutting out people, fresh air, and sunlight. When Mary tries to drag him away, he knocks over a Big Gulp cup, shorting out his system. Venturing outside to find the fuse box, Dick realizes that his computer wasn't keeping him connected to the world -- it was keeping him separated. Sally and Tommy go to buy a new TV set, but the more they learn about the available technology, the less satisfied they are with each purchase they make, until they've upgraded themselves into near-bankruptcy. Sadder but wiser, they return their expensive audiovisual equipment to the store. Also, Harry's all for trying to have a baby with Vicki, until the whole medical-science part of it makes it impossible for him to get in the mood. He tells Vicki it's the natural way or no way, and, turned on by his primal-ness, she agrees.

Dick the Mouth Solomon

Sally meets a suave Italian-American man at a restaurant. He woos her, and when she learns he goes by the name of Sammy 'The Butcher' Marchetti, she and Tommy are thrilled because they assume he's a mobster. Sammy asks Tommy to run errands for him, and Tommy's excited to be working as -- he assumes -- a bag man for the Mob. When Sally and Tommy learn that Sam's not actually a Mafioso but a real butcher, his appeal fades, and they both lose interest in him. Mary, concerned that she and Dick need to work on their communication skills, convinces him to go to a couples retreat. To her dismay, her good intentions get turned around as everyone there -- including Harry and Vicki, the poster children for public displays of affection -- embraces Dick for his openness, and criticizes Mary for her emotional unavailability.

Citizen Solomon

Now that Sally's moved out and won't clean for them anymore, the male Solomons decide that it's time to get a maid. They hire Mary's cleaning woman, Cathy, an inscrutable woman who makes their place sparkle. Overwhelmed by the results, the Solomons begin thinking of Cathy less as help and more as a treasured family member -- despite the fact that Cathy gives them no encouragement to do so. Meanwhile, Sally, jealous of the guys' affection for Cathy, decides that she'll turn the tables -- if Cathy can 'steal' Sally's family, Sally can steal Cathy's. Finally, Cathy, tired of the Solomons' intrusion into her private life, quits. Also, Tommy joins the staff of the school paper and is made editor, displaying a penchant for unearthing scandals both real and imagined. Busy with his new duties, Tommy assigns ex-girlfriend August to review Alissa in 'My Fair Lady.' August's review is unflattering but honest, and Tommy, true to his journalistic ideals, decides to run it. When confronted by a tearful Alissa, however, Tommy buckles, shifting blame to his 'biased' ex-girlfriend's desire to destroy his happiness.

Alien Hunter

A mysterious woman, Charlotte (Kathy Bates), turns up in Dick's life, claiming first to be auditing his class, then to be writing an article about him, then to be an 'intellectual groupie.' She charms Sally, Tommy, and Harry, who are happy to oblige when she offers to help plan the surprise birthday party that Dick has demanded they throw him. Dick is too busy having his ego stroked, and the family is too busy being grateful for her help, to wonder what Charlotte's real story is -- which they regret when they learn she's an alien hunter, come to dissect Dick's brain with the help of her hulking son, Ned. Although Charlotte's called all the invitees to tell them the party's canceled, they begin showing up anyway, interrupting the skull-cutting process. Ned ties them all up in Mrs. Dubcek's basement. Sally, Harry, Tommy, Don, and the others run upstairs just as the FBI arrives to capture Charlotte, a well-known crackpot who has mistakenly thought any number of innocent citizens to be aliens. The Solomons remain unharmed and undetected... for now.

Dick vs. Strudwick

Dick's faculty nemesis, Dr. Vincent Strudwick, writes a physics book that's hailed as a work of genius. When Dick realizes that writing a better book would expose him as a superior alien being, he seeks another means of getting even, finally seizing on Strudwick's displeasure at learning that his teenage daughter Alissa is dating dreaded Solomon spawn Tommy. Dick manipulates Alissa to cause trouble between her and her father, and the conflict comes to a head at the taping of a TV panel show about Strudwick's book, which erupts into Jerry Springer-style fisticuffs. Meanwhile, Sally and Don, feeling 'lonely' since their breakup, find themselves succumbing to 'ex sex.' Also, once Albright befriends a group of misfit Nobel laureates who are in town to hail the publication of Strudwick's book, she can't shake them -- they've imprinted on her like a litter of helpless kittens.

Near Dick Experience

The newly enlightened trio volunteers at a soup kitchen for the homeless, and Dick signs up for a wilderness hiking trip with Mary, hoping like the dickens that he'll lose his footing and find serenity via a near-death experience of his own. While Dick is trying desperately to have his own near-miss with death, the others learn that their new appreciation for every leaf, every bird, and every fellow man is fading rapidly with the passage of every hour. Sally, Tommy, and Harry have just about returned to being their blasé, uncaring selves just as Dick joins them on the roof, bursting with news about how he's just managed to escape death's clutches in a car accident. Now Dick's found a new love for life, but he's still the odd man out.

The family goes to the airport to meet the Big Giant Head (William Shatner), a drunken good-time charlie who's taken the name of 'Stone Phillips,' and who, in short order, moves in and takes over their lives. Dick quickly loses favor with Stone, who's unimpressed both by his choice of girlfriend and his leadership skills. Stone is, however, quite taken by everything about Sally, especially the length of her legs and the shape of her torso, and decides to make her the High Commander instead of Dick. Meanwhile, Harry keeps trying to avoid Vicki, but eventually he tells her that they need to cool the baby thing for awhile, and she runs away from him in tears. Also, although he's initially unenthusiastic, Tommy plans to attend the junior prom because it's so important to Alissa.

Reeling in the aftermath of his demotion, Dick has to get used to taking orders from everyone else in the crew -- even Harry -- a humiliating experience that makes it difficult for him to perform sexually. Even though she didn't want to believe the family's taunts about the reasons for her promotion, Sally finally realizes Stone only made her High Commander because of her looks. Stone makes a pass at Albright, who declines and tells Dick, who's psyched that Stone's changed his mind about Mary. Stone goes to the prom with Tommy and Alissa, where a drunken Stone dumps a punchbowl over Alissa's head, then serenades the promgoers -- including a bedazzled Vicki, who decided it was finally time to attend her junior prom -- with 'Close To You.' In the high school hallway, Stone encounters Vicki and 'beams' her up to his 'bachelor pod' for some lovin'. The next morning, Vicki turns up pregnant, and her pregnancy develops to full term in a matter of moments. Stone, who had been planning to make Earth his base of operations, gets the uncontrollable urge to flee once he learns of Vicki's pregnancy, leaving Sally in charge. The Solomons and Albright rush Vicki to the hospital, where the nurse proclaims, 'I can see the head. Boy, is that a big head...'
