Storyline

Martin comes down with a common cold, which is not so common but rather debilitating for Martians. Meanwhile Tim is sent to Trimbles Department Store to review their outer space exhibit. Trimble, a major advertiser in The Sun, tries to buy and bully for a good review, despite the display showing every unfounded stereotype of life on other planets. Tim knows the display to be total fantasy. But he doesn't get a chance to write the review as he inadvertently takes one of Martin's sleep inducing cold tablets and falls asleep. To submit the review by deadline, Martin writes the review based on his own personal experience of what is true to life on Mars. Trimble is livid and wants Mr. Burns to fire Tim unless Tim apologizes and writes a retraction; Mr. Burns is willing to do so. Tim is going to do as Trimble and Burns wants if only to keep his job and keep from financial bankruptcy, but Martin doesn't want him to compromise what he knows to be right and wrong. Tim does stand up to Trimble ... Written by Huggo
