Dick's Big Giant Headache (1) - S4-E23

Trivia: When the Solomons meet the Big Giant Head at the airport and ask how his flight was, he says that it was horrible because when he looked out the airplane window, he saw something on the wing of the plane.

John Lithgow appeared in "Twilight Zone: The Movie" playing the same character in the same situation.
