Dick tells Tommy to start going to high school as he wants the four of them to act like a typical family. When Sally has the chance to go on a date, Dick tells her to go, since none of them had sex yet and Dick isn't getting anywhere with Mary. With Harry playing her date, Dick explains some things about dating and off Sally goes. She comes back a very happy woman. She didn't have sex though but her date promised to give her a call. Meanwhile, Tommy's teachers think he has an attitude and Dick has to come to the school to talk about it. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

Coach Strickland: Fine, you don't wanna climb the rope, you can go sit over there with the girls.
Tommy Solomon: [looks towards girls] So, let me get this straight. If I don't climb the rope, then I sit with the girls?
Coach Strickland: That's right.
Tommy Solomon: Now, help me out here, cause I'm not seeing the down side.

She's swallowed a tiny monkey.

See Sally's first date! See Tommy begin his high-school experience! See an alien cry for the first time!

"Dick Is from Mars, Sally Is from Venus" isn't quite as clever as its three predecessors, but it's still quite a day at the office. In their perpetual quest to fulfill their human duties, Dick tells Sally she needs to experience sex. So Nina and Mary set her up with a date who's perfect for her-- or is he?

With everything fun must come something painful-- that's an essence of humanity. And it's something Sally learns here for the first time in this intelligent, but slightly weak, entry. But it's nice to know that this show didn't decrease in quality as steeply as some shows did (cough "Mad Men" cough...).

"He asked me where I'd been all his life." "You didn't tell him?" "All the coordinates! Thank heavens he didn't believe me so I didn't have to kill him.
