May 22, 2001 (2001-05-22) 619

Mary is having trouble dealing with seeing Dick transform Liam into a monkey, which Dick did to stop Liam doing the same to the Earth's population. Dick consults the other Solomons and they decide that the best approach is to deny everything. Mary meets with Nina and Judith, who confess that they've always believed there's something suspicious about Dick. Nina thinks Dick is an international terrorist; Judith is convinced he's a psychopathic serial killer itching to place Mary's head in a box.

When Dick and Mary next meet, she demands that he tell her the truth about himself. Dick admits that he and the others are in fact aliens, from outer space. Mary's first reaction is anger at being lied to again, but when pressed to think back with that added information, she flashes through disbelief, shock, surprise, brief nausea, then slow realisation and ending with finding it sexy to be dating a "spaceman".

Elsewhere, the local store has been robbed and Sally catches Don hiding in the frozen foods freezer, which he admits that he did because he was scared. Harry takes a different line and asks the shopkeeper Sam out on a date, but later runs into her working at a posh restaurant, where she instructs him to call her Samantha. Confused, Harry believes that he is dating twins, so confused high jinx ensues as he tries to juggle them 'both' on a date, attempting to keep her (Sam) from herself (Samantha) - finally losing out altogether.

At the end, as they sit out on the roof discussing the day's events, Harry receives a transmission from the Big Giant Head telling them that after a complaint from Liam about their changing him into an ape, their mission on earth has been terminated. They are to pack immediately as their earth bodies will be terminated in a couple days. They're utterly shocked and dismayed at the news, none wanting to leave to go back home.

May 22, 2001 (2001-05-22) 620

The Solomons are struggling to take in the news - they have been ordered back home due to Dick's transgression with Liam. Dick's first instinct is to ask Mary to come, so he takes her to the planetarium before breaking the news to her that they are leaving, and asking her if she will join them, and she agrees.

Meanwhile, since admitting his fear to Sally, Don has decided to quit the police force and open a muffin store, but Sally is disgusted by this career choice and decides to whip Don into shape - and turn him into a hardy police officer.

At home, Harry and Tommy are attempting to organize a farewell party for the aliens, but have no money, so they decide to max out their credit cards and not worry about paying the bill, since they'll be halfway across the galaxy - they even hire Elvis Costello to sing Fly Me to the Moon.

Afterward, the family and Mary drive the Rambler to the spot where the Solomons first appeared on Earth in "Brains and Eggs". As they are about to be beamed aboard the mother-ship, Mary says that as much as she loves Dick, her home is Earth, and she can't leave it. Dick erases Mary's memories of him, but leaves the feeling of love, and puts the keys to the Rambler in her unconscious hand. The family re-assembles in the Rambler and sings their mission song as they're beamed away.
