3rd Rock from the Sun: Dick and the Single Girl

224. Dick and the Single Girl

Aired May 11, 1997

Dick attracts the attention of a quiet librarian at the university, Sonja (Christine Baranski). Meanwhile, Sally finally goes out on a date with Don, while Harry and Tommy try to write an X Files script.

Quote from Don

Don: What the heck is going on here? You almost made me spill my joe.
Sally: That noise, Don, what is it?
Don: All right, everyone, there's no need to panic. This has been a test of the emergency broadcast system.
Dick: Why? Is there an emergency?
Don: No. This has only been a test. Had this been an actual emergency, you would have been instructed on where to go in your area for shelter.
Tommy: Shelter from what?
Don: Bombs.
Dick: To interrupt a program of this quality under the guise of national security is preposterous!

Quote from Don

Tommy: Ooh, look. It's back on.
Don: Hmm, X Files. Never really got it.

Quote from Dick

Harry: Oh, look at this. I bet they break the genetic code and realize Scully's been implanted by the smokin' guy.
Tommy: Oh, look at that! The alien just put a probe in that guy's ear.
Dick: Everybody knows you can't get a brain scan through the ear. You got to go through the butt.

Quote from Sally

Sally: [to a waitress] Hi, uh, excuse me. I'm looking for somebody, a big, strapping guy, handsome. He's a cop.

Harry: ...but he's wearing a bulletproof vest.
Tommy: Mulder runs.
Harry: The agent follows.
Tommy: He traps Mulder in the hallway.
Both: He kills Mulder!
Harry: oh, you're brilliant.
Tommy: Oh, thank you. And you're a genius.
Harry: True, but you're the best. Back at you. And you are super.
Both: We're both great!
Tommy: All right, let's get that down.
Harry: Okay, buddy.
Tommy: Now, what'd we say?
Harry: I don't remember.

Quote from Dick

Dick: What I mean is, I'm sorry if I've misled you in any way, but my heart, my mind, and Mr. Wiggly all belong to Mary Albright.

Quote from Sally

Don: I love walking in the rain. It's fun.
Sally: Really? I found it tedious. Maybe that's because I was with you. Oh, Don, this isn't working.
Don: Yeah, I kinda got that vibe.
Sally: I'm sorry, Don.
Don: I'm sorry too. Oh, look. The sun came out.
Sally: Yeah, but not for us.
Don: Well, good bye, Sally. It was nice while it lasted.
[Don removes his yellow raincoat to reveal his police uniform]
Sally: Good bye, Don. [looks at Don] Hold on a minute there, big guy! Maybe I've, uh, been a little hasty.
Don: Freeze! I may not have officially made detective yet, but I think I've figured out what's going on here. You're not in love with me. You're in love with the uniform.
Sally: Could you be right? Could my attraction to you be completely superficial? [gasps as Don holds his coat in front of his uniform]
Don: I'm afraid so.
Sally: What does this mean for us, Don?
Don: I'll tell you what it means. It means you never see me out of uniform again.
Sally: Hot dog!
Don: And you know, I've got a hat too.
Sally: Wear it.
