Selfish Dick is the nineteenth and penultimate episode of season 1 of 3rd Rock from the Sun. It originally aired on May 14, 1996.


Mary is very excited when she succeeds in getting another, much bigger office that's for her alone. However Dick misses her and schemes to get her back by any means possible, even if it means exploiting an elderly professor

Dick brings Prof. Suter to see Mary's new office

Meanwhile, after Mrs. Dubcek cuts her finger, and the sight of blood leave Sally unconscious, Harry and Tommy rush them to the hospital, where the smell of sterile corridors and the gleam of surgical scrubs remind the aliens of the exciting work of their favorite TV doctors -- work that they practice on several unsuspecting patients, until they get caught and thrown out of the hospital
