The week's invention exchange turns into variations on the old "Bang Gun" gag. Then Joel and the 'bots are forced into a failed 1973 TV pilot called "Stranded in Space", a lackadaisical science fiction adventure about an astronaut who finds himself stranded on the planet Terra, which looks exactly like Earth.
