EPISODE SYNOPSIS: Ohan, a galactic burglar, arrives, closely pursued by Officer Bolix of the Galaxy Law Enforcement Agency. Afraid of being caught with his loot, Ohan leaves a mysterious stolen object with Penny. Smith discovers its secret. It leads him to a hidden ring, just large enough to fit around his neck, which has the property of turning anything he touches into platinum. Smith betrays Ohan to Bolix in order to keep the ring. At first, he is enthralled by it, but when his food turns to metal before he can eat it he finds he cannot take the ring off, he is terrified. Too dangerous to the family to be allowed to stay with them, he wanders into the forest to die. Penny, finding Smith in the forest, forgets the danger of coming too close and is also turned into platinum.
