My Favorite Martian Season 1 Episode 14
Tim’s cousin Harvey is coming for a visit, which means Martin is going to have to go into hiding since Harvey would know that Tim has no Uncle Martin. And they have to keep Mrs. Brown away from Harvey since she would definitely spill the beans about Martin. Living in a small apartment, Martin can only keep away from Harvey so much, even if he is in his invisible state. And the sleeping arrangements become an issue. Those are not the only problems about Harvey’s visit: Harvey is the biggest mooch in the world. Harvey wants Tim to help him get a job at The Sun as Harvey sees himself as the greatest newspaper writer in the world. Tim reluctantly does get Harvey a try-out in a position at The Sun. When Harvey mentions the high stress of this new job, Martin has an idea: he comes by the apartment posing as an old hard-boiled newspaper buddy of Tim’s looking for a job. He mentions that he is looking for work on a small town paper, where newspaper life is more rewarding as high stress jobs, like the one Harvey currently has on The Sun, causes one to see things. That’s when Martin starts moving things with his levitation finger, causing Harvey to think he’s stressed out from his new job. He quickly returns home to his old job.
