In a bar, Dick sees a nerdy student smoking. When he realizes the smoking makes the student cool, he takes up smoking as well. Sally is getting sick and tired of Dick overruling her all the time and besides that, she has a sore tooth. At the dentists office Dick is told he isn't allowed to smoke in the building. While searching for a place to smoke, Dick accidentally locks himself in and he's unable to find an exit. Now, Sally is the leader of the pack. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

Something about that fiery tube has mitigated your oafishness.

Dick's first drag is no drag.

In "Dick, Smoker," the titular character discovers another human habit: nicotine addiction. It's a habit that constantly lands him in trouble, from a stirring Smoker Power speech received by crickets to a dentist-office accident that leads him to discover his "inner voice"... with whom he harmonizes very well on "Danny Boy."

While not one of the best in the series, "Dick, Smoker" has plenty of humor to keep you plugged in, and it's always amusing to see your favorite characters talking to themselves.

-"You can't smoke anywhere in the building."

-"You know, you're awfully smug for a man in a paper coat."
