Harry finds a job at a video store. Tommy has to write a book report but figures it's easier and less boring to just rent the film. While he's at the video store with Harry it starts snowing. Meanwhile, Dr. Albright and Dick are going to Chicago where they'll both be given an award, but it turns out Dick isn't very keen on flying. At home, Sally is alone and afraid of the snow until a rather stressed Leon enters the house to turn in a paper for Dick. Sally tells Leon it's their duty to be fruitful and multiply to save the human race. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

Did You Know?


Looking out of the plane window, John Lithgow shouts, "There's something on the wing!" This is a reference to his part in _Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983)_ reprising William Shatner's famous _"The Twilight Zone" (1963) {Nightmare at 20,000 Feet (#5.3)}_. They'll make reference to this again when Shatner appears as the Big Giant Head later in the series. See more »


Dr. Mary Albright: He's an idiot.
Waitress: Honey, they're all idiots. But that one's looking at you like you're the only girl on Earth. And although you're real pretty, you're not exactly the last ham sandwich in Hungry Town, if you get my drift.

Yep, nobody here but us humans. La la la....

One of the best episodes of "3rd Rock," beyond a shadow of a doubt, is "Frozen Dick"!

Though the snow thing is a mystery considering the time of year that this episode was released (though, I suppose, maybe not in Ohio), the aliens' first experience with it is one of their best discoveries ever. Dick gets himself and Mary thrown off a plane and then crashes their car into a snowbank. Harry suffers through the lack of customers at the video store. But to take the Kewpie doll, Sally, thinking the race has gone extinct and she and a visiting Leon are the last individuals on Earth, decides it is her duty to repopulate the planet. An episode full of hilarious gags, witty humor, and a classic reference to the only good part of "Twilight Zone: The Movie."

"'A lusty romp through the cheese and sausage shops of Communist East Berlin.'"
