Storyline

At a party given in his honor, an obnoxious professor dies. While the crew starts thinking about what will happen with their earthly bodies when they go on to explore other worlds, it turns out the will of the professor states he wants Dick to speak at the funeral because Dick has always been honest with him. However, Dick doesn't want to speak bad about him and tries to find something good about the universally detested professor. In the meantime, Tommy spends time with some cheerleader instead of with August. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

And you... be a pleasant toady and get me another drink.
7 October 2007 | by RiffRaffMcKinleySee all my reviews

The first experiences just keep crawling out of the woodwork as one of Dick's colleagues dies.

And he's not a very well-loved one (to say the least), but he wants Dick to deliver an honest eulogy at his funeral. Uh-oh. The rest of the episode is partly a quest for him to find the right thing to say, partly an existential musing on the nature of life... and, of course, death.

John Mahoney's guest appearance is astoundingly great. And when the eulogy finally rolls around, you'll be speechless. This I guarantee; you *will* be speechless.

"Why didn't you just phone it in?"
