Meet Dave

Synopsis: A spaceship shaped like a human lands face first on Liberty Island. Its crew (of tiny, intelligent, and unemotional beings) is looking for an orb sent from its planet to extract the oceans' salt, which will ruin Earth. The orb is in the possession of Josh, the fifth-grade son of a single mom whose car strikes the ambulatory alien spaceship and cripples its power supply. The crew has 48 hours to recover the orb, throw it in the Atlantic, and leave Earth. Over the course of two days, the ship's crew experiences chaos and emotion in New York. Do Earth's giants - Josh and his mom - have anything to teach these brainy aliens? Meanwhile, mutiny is afoot and the cops are closing in.

What a frivolous name

for such a vital function.

Well, if you prefer,

there's another called "Yahoo! "

Baffling.

-What about...

-Cultural and historical references?

-Already on it, Captain.

-Good.

-No. 4, is security prepared?

-Yes, sir.

My team can handle any threat

posed by these gargantuan savages.

-Good.

-lnitial reports confirm

that draining this planet's oceans

would have

a catastrophic effect on existing life.

We have orders, No. 3.

Our entire home world is depending on us.

Agreed.

We should not lament

the fates of these inferior creatures.

Lf the orb has fallen into their hands,

who knows for what nefarious purpose

they could be using it

at this very moment?

Mom, there's a drunk guy

in the alley again!

-That's him.

-Who?

-The guy l just hit with my car.

-You're kidding. Again?

Oh, l barely clipped that other guy.

Sir, coronal gas readings just spiked.

-The orb must be nearby.

-Hello?

Hello, sir, hi. Hello? Hi, there.

-Hello, sir? Hi, are you allright?

-Contact, everyone!

-Because youjust ran off.

-No. 17.

-Return to the ship.

-Copy.

L'm worried. l really feel terrible

about what just happened.

Can l call you an ambulance or something?

Any medical attention for... For your foot?

Your foot.

Our first verbal encounter.

Thank you for your concern.

Thank you for your concern.

Lt's way too high. More bass!

Thank you for your concern.

Level the frequency.

L'm all better now.

How hard did you hit this guy?

Lt's time for you to go

to school before you're late, okay?

Mom...

See how she squeezes the smaller

one's skull despite his protests.

-Stop! Stop!

-Such brutality!

-Go on. Goodbye.

-Stop!

Hey, safety first. And if those boys

are after you, you tell me!

-l'm calling their parents.

-Okay.
