Hey, Henry, how you doin' tonight?

Workin' hard?

The Newcomer turns -- his face is humanoid, but

disturbingly alien.


You got your green card, buddy? You

didn't leave home without it?

The cops at the bar crack up. Henry looks at Fedorchuk --

his eyes carrying no malice... or pain. He merely blinks.



An explosion of color and movement as OPENING TITLES PLAY

very quickly. We're TRAVELING the streets in a n.d.

sedan, getting MOVING GLIMPSES of the aliens living among

-- A coffee shop where aliens eat at some window tables.

-- A Newcomer leaving a night school with an armload of


-- A city park where a number of alien families have

-- A billboard for Pepsi featuring an alien.

-- The sedan has pulled to a stop at a red light.

Suddenly a hand thumps against the glass next to Sykes'

DERELICT standing there, weaving, mumbling in his own

language. In one filthy hand holds a quart carton of

milk. We know immediately what he wants. Sykes rolls

down the window.


Take a hike.

Sykes gets a whiff of the derelict's breath as the light

changes and the sedan pulls away, leaving him in the

street. Sykes grimaces at the smell.

these guys get wasted on? What the

hell's wrong with Jack Daniels, or

Thunderbird for chrissakes?

(beat; disgusted)

Slagtown. Shit...

-- Aliens hanging around outside their homes.

-- Alien hookers plying their trade.


Hope their plumbing's the same.


It is.

(and Sykes gives him

a look)
