Messages are telegraphed from earth to the space station to break the news that extra duty, and time in space is required. Chapman is a little disgruntled that his relief won’t be on the next shuttle. What’s the rest of the crew planning once they get back home? All the usual stuff men do when returning after a long separation. Three years in space is a long time.
As equipment checks are made, the crew discuss the reasons why relief ships don’t come more often. Will Chapman be convinced to stay longer if he doesn’t have to? A flash in the distant sky signals the relief ship is near, and landing.
The atmosphere is upbeat as the crews meet, and bring mementos from earth. The reason for being shorthanded is revealed, and the ordeal of crewmen lost in an exploration is told in flashback. As much as he would rather return to earth, Chapman is faced with a motivation to stay on. Bravery? Or has he been manipulated into the extra duty?
Note: Messages sent by telegraph? Seriously? Not to mention smoking in oxygen rich environments like the space ship. Brilliant. What are these guys… rocket scientists?
By Isaac Azimov.
A couple are to play host to a visiting alien dignitary. How does one make a guest comfortable who comes from a race of cyanide breathing creatures? The alien sits… er… stands because it isn’t anatomically constructed to sit, and relaxes in the home of the security official, enjoying a beverage laced with ethyl alcohol.
Why is the alien here? To study this queer planet we call earth. On Hawkins planet the aliens never stop growing, and don’t actually die, at least not unless outside forces are at work. What interest might the alien have in visiting a police station?
What unique features do humans that fascinate, and also are revolting to the Hawkins being? What is it that makes Mrs Smollot so suspicious of the alien… and her husband? What’s so important about knowing what the inhibition death is, and what does Rose know about it that her security force husband doesn’t?

A reworking of an earlier script.
The cast members are meeting together to decide how to raise money for a bigger and better playground. Connie and Boynton are the faculty supervisors, while Walter and Harriet are the students in charge. They decide to have an auction, and discuss ways to get the word out. They’re second problem is finding something to auction off. Things are running too smoothly, and mix ups are sure to arise.
Walter has a contact in the real estate business. Harriet and Connie rummage through personal affects to find some goodies. Surely something will turn up since the Conklin’s are moving to a new house, and they’re getting all new furniture.
Connie and Boynton review some of their bargains, including a set of andirons. (Whatever those are is a mystery to me). The iron artifacts are part of the Conklin’s new furnishings that were delivered to the school, instead of their new house. I knew there was a mix up in there somewhere. More mix ups arise when Walter’s real estate connection has a house with furniture to donate to the auction. Trusting Stretch to run an errand, he gets the addresses mixed up. Although those special andirons are safe, it seems that the Conklin’s are about to have their new furniture hit the auction block. Let the slow burning begin.
