After some prodding from Heather, Lisa shows up at Michael's townhouse to ask him out to dinner and extends the invitation to Dr. Morris as well.

Dr. Morris has equipped Michael with a high-tech jumpsuit that lights up and is visible from 50 miles away at an altitude of 30,000 feet. When Michael questions what he would be doing at 30,000 feet, Dr. Morris tells him he'll be jumping out of an airplane to test a new zero-gravity super barrier. Heather is struck by lightning while watching the strange light in the sky, lapsing into a coma. Michael insists on seeing her at the hospital, and accidentally activates the light suit from outside her 4th floor hospital window just as Heather awakens. Heather thinks she's seeing an angel. When asked by a teacher, she reluctantly tells the story of seeing an angel and her schoolmates think she's crazy. She agrees to an interview with the school paper, which leads to the story spreading and other media outlets mobbing the Wiseman home for a story. All the media attention has hampered Dr. Morris' ability to continue further testing, so he and Michael must solve this dilemma.

The General is impatient and considering pulling the plug on the program unless Dr. Morris will agree to put a new brain in his body.

10 March 2000
A mentally impaired young man, named Jimmy, accidentally stumbles upon a terrorist cell's weapons cache in an abandoned building while he is playing superhero. In the process, he witnesses Michael capturing some terrorists by pulling down part of a building and flipping over their car by hand. As Michael is leaving the scene, Jimmy overhears where Michael lives. Being convinced that he has seen a real-life superhero in action, he tracks Michael down. When he tells Dr. Morris and Michael about seeing a crate of missiles, they think it is just another example of his comic-book delusions. However they discover that the terrorist cell is still active. Roger dabbles in online stock trading, and accidentally clicks on the wrong thing, inadvertently getting lucky and making a fortune. Rather than admitting that it was a fluke, Roger hints to his co-workers that he has a foolproof statistical model for playing the stock market. Craig Spence hears the rumors and insists that Roger let him in on the action with some stock tips.
