Dr. Vincent Strudwick, a colleague of Dick, has written a book on physics that everybody considers to be pure genius. There are even some Nobelprice winners at the presentation of the book. While Mary associates with these brainboxes, Dick is jealous at Strudwick and decides to write a much better book on physics than any man has ever done before, just to get even. He realizes this will expose him as a superior alien being and he has to find another way to get even with Strudwick. Luckily for him, Tommy's girlfriend turns out to be the daughter of Strudwick. Meanwhile, in spite of the fact they've broken up, Sally and Don go to a movie together, as friends. However, after the movie they go to Sally's place and one thing soon leads to another.

Hamilton Bell: [At a TV show discussing Dr Vincent Strudwick's new book, Dr Dick Solomon provokes a disturbance, and the show's host attempts to regain control] Calm down, please, calmly, calmly. This is a show about a science book. It should be boring.
