Tuck Pendleton is a cocky pilot, who is taking part in a miniaturization experiment. When some bad guys break into the lab to steal the technology, one of the scientists takes a syringe which contains the miniaturized Tuck and vessel. Now in the vessel is part of the material needed to restore him. But the other part which is the lab is stolen. The scientist's shot but before dying he injects Tuck into Jack Putter, a hypochondriac, who feels that something is wrong with him all the time.

There are several problems with this idea: 1) the pod would weigh just as much as before, and would therefore punch a hole right through the subject it is injected into because all that weight would be concentrated in a spot the size of a blood cell, 2) the Heisenburg Uncertainty Principle basically states that an object taken apart at the subatomic level would be impossible to reassemble, 3) Tuck would have died from being "molecularly isolated and displaced", 4) fluids would be impossible for a submersible to maneuver through because, at that scale, ordinary water would be like a gel to a thruster (not to mention bodily fluids which are thicker), and 5) whiskey would be impossible to drink.
