Man in Bar
Robert Lynch ...


Dick finds out humans have birthdays and people should 'act their age' and therefore the crew should also get a birthday. This is no problem for Tommy, Harry and Sally since they feel fine with their body and the age that goes along with it. However, Dick, being middle-aged, doesn't like it one bit, especially since he really likes Lori, a student who thinks about studying at the university next year. This makes Dick change his hair color and his outfit. Written by Marco van Hoof <>

Oh my God! ... I'm *Gorgeous*!!!

That quote also describes the quality of "Dick's First Birthday," a third consecutive smash in the "3rd Rock" line-up.

Dick finally comes face-to-face with the pitfalls of aging when Nina asks him for info for an office birthday list. At first, he doesn't understand why his age matters, but soon-- very much like Dick-- he'll do anything possible to get to the front of the train... unfortunately for everyone with eyesight.

Although it features a forgettable guest spot by Lauren Graham (of the despicable show "Gilmore Girls"), "DFB" is just as clever as you'd expect an episode of a show as fine as "3rd Rock" to be.

*Destroy all the mirrors now!*
