According to this, you're a 300-pound, 75-year-old, Asian woman.

At last, Dick learns the subtle nuances of truth and lies.

Unfortunately, not before Mary flatters him into subbing for her at a meeting of the Rules Committee. Of course, she's filled Dick's mind with her all-too-honest opinions of the Committee, so is this really just ringing Dick's dinner bell? Watch and see!

(In the episode's B plot line, Harry and Sally go to the DMV to get driver's licenses.)

More great humor, more great character development, and the committee scene is absolutely wondrous.

"Oh, you have a mole! A big, ugly mole!"
