Arthur Needs Space Season 1, Episode 9 Sep 30, 2003 Paid

While taking a break for coffee with The Tick, Arthur spots a high school classmate he once worshipped from afar. Though not wanting to be seen, Arthur is pleasantly surprised when Stacey Waxman says that she finds his new superhero status appealing. And when she suggests a dinner date, Arthur happily agrees. But when The Tick assumes he's invited, too, Arthur is forced to tell him otherwise. Meanwhile, Captain Liberty enlists Batmanuel's help to keep some nude photographs of her from appearing in a men's magazine. When Stacey is quick to reveal just how attracted she is to his superhero garb, a goodnight kiss makes Arthur realize that he just might have a chance to spend the night with her. But Arthur's dream date is brought to a grinding halt when The Tick arrives at home. Meanwhile, Batmanuel's ill-timed bathroom break keeps Captain Liberty from stopping the offending magazines in their tracks. But when her military colleagues call Captain Liberty to answer for the photos, it's Batmanuel who steps in to defend her. In the wake of his aborted first date with Stacey, Arthur does his best to make The Tick understand that he interfered. Running into Stacey at the laundromat, Arthur worries that, without his uniform, she won't find him attractive. When Stacey claims that the uniform isn't all she's interested in, Arthur's hopes for romance are revived. Yet, when a documentary on the sex lives of insects has The Tick worried about Stacey's motives, another confrontation leaves Arthur without a date once again. Finally, with the military's charges against her dropped, Captain Liberty returns to her life as a superhero.
