  • A terrific episode that shows Dick's misunderstanding of humanity

    This was such a hilarious episode where Dick decides to take up smoking after he sees a student doing it. According to Dick it makes him look "cool." Of course upon taking up smoking, Dick considers himself part of an elite club and announces he will defy anyone who will try to make him quit. Of course he spits out the usual smoker rhetoric, "I can quit anytime I want" and puts out a cigarette only to light another one. Nina also makes the comment to him that it will shorten his life by 10 years to which he says "Well the years at the end suck anyway." This is a classic episode that really shows Dick's misunderstanding of humans when his bad habit starts to annoy everyone around him. And it couldn't make me laugh harder.
