Hell, well, look.|Don't go near him.

- It's a little late for that, Frank.|- What?

It wasn't me.

Barry shot his head off.|He had the magnum.

I knew it was a mistake|to issue weapons.

We're a government department,|not a para-military unit.

The Astro-Investigation|and Defence Service.

Wish they change that name!

Due to the potentially|dangerous hazards involved...

All right, at least you managed|to convince the minister.

Aren't you interested|in this joker we caught then?

- Course we are, Derek.|- Right.

Stay where you are and I'll give you|an eye-witness description...

of this inter-galactic wanker.

Well, I would describe him|as sort of human-shaped.

He's got jeans|and a blue shirt on.

Christ, he's nabbed|a bloody farmer!

Yeah, but there's something|strange about him though.

Like he's got a screw loose|or something.

It is a bloody farmer!

Yeah, Derek strikes again!

Is this another false alarm like the|Manners Street Invasion Alert?

How do you explain the disappearance|of an entire township then, Frank?

The Kiwi Jonestown,|of course, that's it.

Drinking beer laced with cyanide|from little polystyrene cups.

Yeah, yeah, OK.|Derek, just do me one favour.


Try not to make him extinct|before we get there. Out!

Christ, what a dork!|How the hell did he get in this team?

Well, this has buggered your plans|for conquering the universe?

My friend, the astro-bastard.|Time for talkies.

By the time my colleagues|get here...

I want to have you babbling|in some extra-terrestrial language.

Now, in case you don't want|to do what you're told...

I could always encourage you|by hammering this cold steel...

into your fibula.

It'll sure poke a nasty hole|in your marrow, mate.

We'll get the old ball rolling?

Now, what are you dirty hooers|doing on my planet?
