Joel finally has a chance to return home for two weeks: he gets a substitute teacher, fellow Jewish New Yorker David Ginsberg. Joel instantly takes a growing dislike to him and is suspicious. Maggie tells only Chris and him about her premonition that the flight back would be fatal for Joel. Maurice's intimate astronaut-groupie, Ingred Klochner, consults Joel about the man's sleep-breathing disorder, while he always refused a medical examination. Written by KGF Vissers
