Planet 51

Synopsis: Lem is just an average teenager working on getting the girl and furthering his career at the local planetarium - except that he's an alien. At least to U.S. astronaut Captain Charles T. Baker who lands on Lem's planet hoping for a quick flag plant and a hasty return to earth and his millions of screaming fans. But on this alien planet the media has tagged spacemen as brain-eating, zombie-creating monsters, causing Baker to run for his life and into Lem's house. Now it's up to the green native to get the clumsy astronaut back to his spaceship before military dictator General Grawl and mad scientist Professor Kipple manage to exterminate the Earthly visitor.

or extinction!




If you guys go

in costume,

I'm pretending

we never met.

Did you just say what

I think you just said?

I'm a planetarium

professional now.

I don't have time for

kids' movies anymore.


Kids' movies?

I suppose next you'll

say aliens don't exist.


Ha! Just as I thought.

You're not Lem.

You're an alien zombie,

like in Humaniacs II.

Skiff, I'm not

a zombie.

Yeah, that's what you

zombies are programmed to say.

Tell me something the

real Lem would know.

Well, I know Skiff

is the only nutcase

who thinks the government is

hiding all alien evidence in Base 9.

And you give candy to your

puppy so he'll poop jelly beans.



It was just an experiment.

With all due respect,

I've put in the hours and done

a lot of alien research at work.


you talking about?

You work in a

comic book store!

The greatest source

of scientific knowledge.

Skiff, time to unpack

the fake alien poop.

Right away,

Mr. Haglug.

You will believe me, Lem, when

aliens put you on the takeout menu.



I love

fake-alien-poop day.

So, um, Eckle, do you

think your sister's home?


I thought maybe...

I thought I might

tell her I got the job.


(CHUCKLES) Forget it.

You tell her for me. Okay?

Okay, but every time you

tell me to tell her something,

she asks why don't you

just tell her yourself?

What? And then my mom says

it's because you like her,

and then she says that,

"Oh, that's so cute,"

and why don't you just

ask her out already,

'cause she's been waiting

for you to ask her out

ever since we moved next door to you.
