Alone Together
Episode Fifteen, Season Two

Original air date: 9/16/1995
Alone Together

Alone Together is another of my favorite episodes. It has more sight gags and good one liners than most of the other episodes; like "I've been the janitor to the apocalypse for two long months, Arthur, and it's a comin' this way!" The basic story is that The Tick is chosen to participate in a cleanup effort on the Moon (to remove the Cha from The Tick vs. Chairface Chippendale) Of course, Tick screws up and blows himself into space where he meets Omnipotus.

Omnipotus is a gigantic person who floats through the universe eating planets. Unfotunately for him, he can't do many of the things that smaller people can do, and he makes The Tick do things like pluck his eyebrows and rub his feet in exchange for giving him a ride back to Earth. When the arrive at the Earth, though, Omnipotus starts eating it. Without giving too much away, Tick manages to convince Omnipotus to go away with only a small bite out of the moon...

Space Tick!

This is one small step for The Tick, and one giant step for…say…a little bug! or some guy who has been shrunk to the size of a penny!

Minimum safe distanct

I say let the indestructible guy do the dirty work.

The funniest part of this episode has to be Arthur's experiences without The Tick. When Tick seems to be blown up everyone assumes he is dead (or just gone) and the City builds a memorial statue. Soon after The Whirling Scottish Devil goes on a crime spree. Arthur is distraught with grief, and he signs on to sidekick for Die Fledermaus for awhile but has to quit when he realizes that Die Fledermaus never actually fights crime. He then 'kicks for Human Bullet for awhile but getting shot out of the cannon didn't seem to do him much good. He tries out his solo career and is about to be pummelled by the Scottish Devil when the Tick falls out of the sky is a rocket shoe and knocks the head of his own statue onto the Devil. Arthur was saved!
