Storyline

Because he feels the Solomons haven't done well on their mission, the Big Giant Head comes to Earth to personally chastise them. Thinking they might have become too human, Dick orders Sally to move back in and he tells Harry not to have a baby with Vicki. He also tries to prepare Mary for the visit of his old "college friend" because he's worried the Big Giant Head might think Dick has wasted his time with Mary. Meanwhile, Tommy and Alissa are starting preparations for their junior prom. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The Big Giant Head (William Shatner) says, "I'm a rocket man you know?". In 1978, Shatner performed a spoken word rendition of Elton John's "Rocket Man" in his classic over-paused, over-acting style. See more »

Goofs

After Harry has eaten the pickled egg and says, "That's pretty good," you can see that the lid on the jar of eggs is open and flipped back. In the next shot, he looks back at the door for a split second, and when he looks at the bartender again, the lid is now shut tight. See more »

Quotes
