The Art Of Dick
When she can't go to a meeting where she has to speak, Mary flatters Dick in order to get him to go the meeting for her. After Dick discovers the trick behind the flattering he doesn't understand why people lie to each other. Dick discovers the consequences of telling the truth when he repeats some of Mary's comments about how boring the academic committee are, at the meeting. Predictably, Mary is annoyed, and enlightens Dick to the concept of 'bending the truth'.
Meanwhile, Sally and Harry attempt to get a driver's license, but discover that it is more difficult that they'd expected. And Tommy is upset because he has a pimple.
