S3 E4: Dick answers Marys phone at the office and accepts an invitation for the two of them to spend the weekend with Marys parents who arent aware that Dick and Mary have broken up. Mary is frantic when she finds out, but agrees to go and pretend theyre still engaged. Dick had promised Nina hed help her move over the weekend, so he enlists the other aliens to help her. Dick is desperate to win the respect and approval of Marys parents (George and Martha), and they seem to warm to him immediately, but it quickly becomes apparent that the parents are a bit bizarre and have an adversarial relationship that they make no effort to hide. To Marys horror, George relates to Dick (in excruciating detail) embarrassing moments from Marys girlhood, and Marys mortified. But Dick tells Mary he really likes her parents. Mary feels compelled to tell Dick some family secrets that change his attitude about George and Martha, and Dick immediately confronts them that leads to a huge argument between the parents. Dick is completely freaked out by the family drama, but Mary and her parents are grateful that its all out in the open.
Starring George Grizzard, Elaine Stritch
