3rd Rock from the Sun: Dick Solomon of the Indiana Solomons

When Dick gets a misaddressed invitation, he decides to pack up Mary and the family, head to Indiana, and experience what a family reunion is like. Expected to find warmth, love, and support, he is upset to learn he's walked into the middle of a forty-year-old feud. After Mary's suggested strategy of repression fails, Dick realizes that family isn't always perfect, but they're all you've got, so you might as well like it. Harry bonds with Uncle Abe (Jack Carter) to the point where he absorbs his knowledge of family history, his love of cigars, his raspy voice, and his worldly wisdom. Sally is thrilled when she develops a sisterly relationship with cousin Michelle, and dejected when Michelle's real sister arrives to usurp her. Tommy thinks he's found a love connection with cousin Janine, but doesn't understand why she's creeped out by his advances--and devastated when he tells her their love isn't forbidden because she's actually adopted.
