and the rest of the aliens visit a mall and discover all new
worlds. Tommy meets August and discovers the excitement and

**Body & Soul Dick**EP#113
Harry (and the rest of the aliens) get cable. Tommy hangs
out with a cheerleader, but there's trouble: something is
missing and it really ticks off August. Dr. Leonard Hamlin
(we don't know what he does, but everyone at the university
has to kiss up to him) dies and asks Dick to deliver his
eulogy, honestly. Dick succeeds (at least in the eyes of
the humans). The aliens contemplate the brevity of human
life and Tommy tries to make amends with August by bringing
her to the Funeral (a nice place-you have to dress up).

The Solomon's experience the annoyance of relatives and this
causes Dick to despair. So Dick invites Dr. Albright and
her brother Roy over in order to study how she deals with
relatives. There Roy reveals that he was abducted by aliens
(much to the dismay of Dr. Albright and causing panic among
the aliens). While Dick is talking to Dr. Albright, Sally
sneaks off with Harry in order to kill Roy. Tommy warns
Dick of this and is then off with August to watch 'They Came
to Talk' with her. Dick stops Sally before she kills Roy
and learns that you forgive your family 'even if they touch
your radio, refuse to make smoked chubb and disobey your
orders not to kill'.

Sally commands the Bake sale at Tommy's school and she does
it with success, but not without casualties. Dick and Harry
go to an art class. There Harry discovers that he is good
at this, but Dick is not. This gets Dick's goat until he
realizes that if he cannot create art, he can at least be
the inspiration. His attempt to do so both amuses and amazes
Dr. Albright and Nina.

Dick tries to make it a stress-free experience for her. He
gets them kicked off the plane and then they try to drive
there in the snow. Suffice it to say, they never arrive in
Chicago. Sally fears the end of the world at the hands of
albino brain chiggers (snow) and almost has to repopulate
the world with Leon.

**Angry Dick**EP#104
The aliens move from watching humans to trying to interact
with them. Harry goes with the old stand-by (watching TV).
Dick meets Frank (their neighbor)and Sally meets his wife.
Sally learns about cooking and talks about being a woman
with Frank's wife. Dick's relationship with Frank is
strained by a 3am visit and the practice of parking the
car over the property line (and a little snobbishness as
only Dick can do it). When Dick learns to resort to
violence, mutual respect is achieved and the relationship
is mended (though we have yet to see them again).
