Mrs. Brown is taking a course on how to be a private detective, and her first assignment is to prepare a dossier on an unsuspecting person. Her choice of subject is Martin. Of course, Martin knows what she's up to, but he is still a bit concerned about her discovering his Martian identity. Mrs. Brown finds Martin's flight log, which is written in Martian, but again Martin is concerned since the uneducated are too dense to know any better. She takes a photograph of it, which Martin is worried she will pass onto authorities, who, when they are unable to decipher it, will suspect him of being a foreign spy. She apparently has mailed the film to her teacher, J. Nathaniel Pierce, who is more shyster than teacher. Martin needs to apprehend the film before Pierce gets a hold of it. At Pierce's office, Martin searches to no avail, and must endure a sales job by Pierce before he finds out that the mailman can't and won't deliver Mrs. Brown's film since she failed to put postage on the package....

Near the end of the episode, Martin remarks that Mrs. Brown becomes involved in matters like taking a correspondence school's detective course because "Mrs. Brown has no family." This contradicts what was shown in earlier episodes of this season, such as the pilot episode, which introduced both her daughter Angela (Ann Marshall) who also appeared in two other episodes, and her niece
Annabelle (Ina Victor). See more »
