Season 3, Episode 11Edit
In Season 3, Episode 11, Killer Chat (airing December 15th, 2006) Aldrin plays himself, and escorts professor Larry Fleinhardt from the FBI headquarters to his shuttle.
We first see Aldrin reading a newspaper on a bench while Larry and Megan are saying their goodbyes in an alcove to the bridge to the FBI building.
Larry says, "[Laughs] I think NASA figured I'd need help finding my way."
Aldrin shakes out his paper to fold it and greet Larry bounding towards him. They walk away in slow motion, wearing sunglasses, to ELton John's song Rocketman.
