My Favorite Martian Season 1 Episode 36
Tim gets mad at Martin for “disappearing and spying” on him while he has a date at the apartment. To make up for this, Martin covers for Tim when he goes missing from the office and Mr. Burns calls the apartment looking for him. Martin goes on the story in his place and phones back to Mr. Burns with an exclusive using Tim’s voice. Unfortunately, Mr. Burns sees Tim in the office when he is also on the talking to him on the phone; Tim confesses that it is Martin on the phone covering for him. Also unfortunately, the exclusive is regarding an old friend of Mr. Burns’, Ambassodor Lloyd Thomas, who decides to sue the paper for invasion of privacy because of the story. Martin finds out that the suit is in part due to some old animosity between Mr. Burns and Ambassador Thomas, and thus Martin decides to try and mend some old wounds.
