Toomorrow (1970) (part 8 of 10)
Olivia pulls Observer aside and asks him if he would think someone who said they’d been on an alien spacecraft was a nutter. He says no.
Meanwhile a report comes over the radio, saying that the college’s administration has agreed to the students’ demands after all, thanks to Matt. Now, something was bothering me earlier, which was that Olivia was calling him “Matt” and “Matthew” but the principal called him “Mr. Matthew.” So, what, is his name Matthew Matthew? Well, according to the radio news report, the answer is—yes! I’ll bet I know who his chiropractor is, too.
With this rather anticlimactic, off-screen resolution of the “B” plot, all that’s left is to go prep for the Festival. They offer to let Observer get in by being their road manager. When Observer asks what this entails, Karl says, “Nothing.” Haha, I’ll bet that zinged… someone.
