The candidates have materialized in the closet and are ready and waiting. Both aliens are sold on Christie, an extremely efficient young woman, until they meet the incredibly handsome Bryce. Sally`s bowled over by Bryce and hires him on the spot. Harry`s upset, but he`s quickly overruled. Meanwhile, Dick drops Tommy off at his dorm, and they reminisce about all the missions they`ve been on together. Sally`s loving every minute that Bryce is around, but after Bryce`s first day on the job, Dick decides to go get Tommy and bring him back. Tommy`s already enjoying college and flirting with girls. Dick arrives and tries to convince Tommy to come home and go to Pendleton if he must go to college, but Tommy says he`s not leaving. He does manage to convince Tommy that to impress the girls and really make a name for himself he has to come up with an outrageous freshman prank.

The Solomons, without Tommy, are on the roof. Sally and Harry tell Dick that Bryce is gone; he didn`t work out. Dick is saying how funny it seems without Tommy just as Tommy is coming up the back steps with a laundry basket. Since school is only an hour away, he thought he`d do his laundry at home.… Expand.
