Tommy, Harry and Sally orders room service

Now that he is growing closer to Mary, Dick begins to feel that he should tell her the truth about where he and the others really come from.

Aghast by the way aliens are portrayed in a film the Solomons have seen, Harry feels they should tell the humans the truth about aliens. Harry considers a science fiction convention to be the perfect place and the Solomons go to the convention.

It's their first time in a hotel and after they find out about room service, Harry, Tommy and Sally rack up an enormous bill. Tommy hacks the hotel's computer and passes the charges onto an outraged George Takei.
