Storyline

The Solomons find out family members sometimes irritate each other. When Dr. Albright tells Dick she has a brother (Roy), Dick thinks the Solomons can benefit from observing Dr. Albright and Roy and he invites them over. It soon turns out Dr. Albright and Roy don't get along all that well. And, much to Dr. Albright's dislike, Roy tells a story about how he was once abducted by a spaceship. The Solomons don't know how to deal with this information: Should they kill him? Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

And in a cornfield! That's such a cliché!
7 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bronson Pinchot guests this week on "3rd Rock from the Sun" as Mary Albright's obnoxious brother Roy.

The twist: he claims to have been abducted by aliens!

Of course, an embarrassed Mary denies his statements... but the Solomons wind up panicking! He knows too much!

The episode's cornfield-based climax is terrific and should leave no one disappointed. But I think the real attraction this episode has to offer is its banter, which may well be the best in the series. "Oh sure-- aliens traveled *billions* of light-years across space just to ram a probe up Roy Albright's butt!"

"No, no, *no*! We are not killing *anyone*!"
