Storyline

Mary tells Dick she's planning on going to Borneo for a year. Dick doesn't want her to go and plans to ask her to marry him. The anxiety leads to his first nightmare and he and the other aliens think he's gone mad. A psychologist gives him pills that make him mellow. Later Sally also has a nightmare and also ends up high on pills. Tommy and Harry desperately try to contact the Big Giant Head so they can go back to their home planet for emergency maintenance.
