Storyline

Because he feels the Solomons haven't done well on their mission, the Big Giant Head comes to Earth to personally chastise them. Thinking they might have become too human, Dick orders Sally to move back in and he tells Harry not to have a baby with Vicki. He also tries to prepare Mary for the visit of his old "college friend" because he's worried the Big Giant Head might think Dick has wasted his time with Mary. Meanwhile, Tommy and Alissa are starting preparations for their junior prom. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The Big Giant Head (William Shatner) says that he looked out the window and saw something on the side of the airplane he flew in on, whereupon Dick (John Lithgow) exclaims, "The same thing happened to me!". This is an inside joke about The Twilight Zone story "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet", which is about a frightened airline passenger who sees a gremlin on the wing of the airplane he's flying on. Shatner played the lead role in that 1963 episode of the TV series The Twilight Zone (1959), and Lithgow played the lead role in that story in Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983). See more »

Goofs

After Harry has eaten the pickled egg and says, "That's pretty good," you can see that the lid on the jar of eggs is open and flipped back. In the next shot, he looks back at the door for a split second, and when he looks at the bartender again, the lid is now shut tight. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Dick Solomon: Families don't refer to each other by rank. They use more familiar terms like 'you' or 'bastard' or... 'you bastard'.
