Storyline

The Gillises and Maynard are on vacation in Washington DC. There, Maynard is pursued romantically by a beautiful woman name Veronica Vanderheit, only because she believes he is the world famous rocket scientist Dr. Henry Fahrenheit. Dobie encourages her pursuit of Maynard despite her misidentification of Maynard as Dr. Fahrenheit only because he believes he himself can woo her in the process. Dobie and Maynard learn from federal agents that she is really a foreign spy, who is not averse to killing for what she wants, in this case the top secret formula for the rocket fuel that Dr. Fahrenheit is developing. The agents want Maynard to continue to impersonate Dr. Fahrenheit to Veronica so that they can nab her entire spy ring. The mission is dangerous enough for Maynard, but throw into the mix Dobie's parents, who have no idea what's going on, and the mission becomes more complicated. Written by Huggo
