3rd Rock from the Sun

3rd Rock from the Sun is an American sitcom that aired from 1996 to 2001 on NBC. The show is about four extraterrestrials who are on an expedition to Earth, which they consider to be a very insignificant planet. The extraterrestrials pose as a human family to observe the behavior of human beings.


Why don't you just let me go?

Officer Don:
Because I know you did it, Jonesy. You jumped the fence and you stole the money.

But you've got no proof. Besides, I couldn't have jumped the fence. It's physically impossible.

Physically impossible? That's where you're wrong! You may not have much respect for the law, Jonesy, but there's one law that you can't break: Coulomb's Third Law of Universal Gravitation!


It states that the force between two objects is proportional to the algebraic products of their respective charges, as well as proportional to the inverse square of the distance between them. But of course, you knew that, didn't you, Jonesy?

Not all of it.

[illustrating on a dry-erase board] You're object "X" and the fence is object "Y". Now, where "V" is the velocity of the two objects and "R" is the distance between them and "E" is a unit vector directed from the first object to the second, we see that the fence proved little challenge.

Well, I guess.

You guess... I bet you guess! And so we see that X equals zero as Y approaches infinity. That's how you avoided the security camera. That's how you managed to get back over the fence. That's how they found you exactly 1.3 miles from the crime scene proving that you and only you could have perpetrated this heinous crime! [slaps the board] There's the proof!

Okay! Okay! Okay, you got me, I did it! I did it! My god, what kind of cop are you?

I'm not a cop. I'm a physics professor!
