At a party given in his honor, Dr. Leonard Hanlin, an obnoxious and sexist professor, dies. This gets the crew thinking about what will happen with their earthly bodies when they go on to explore other worlds. It turns out the will of the professor states he wants Dick to speak at the funeral because Dick has always been honest with him.
