but a woman is used to

a certain response from men,

and from those boys

I didn't even get the automatic...

When I was introduced to Sam,

he did this.

I did not do that.

Based on what I was doing

with my blouse,

they should have tried

to look down my top...

Wouldn't have had to try very hard.

We'll go to the TV station that

broadcast those conflicting reports.

Try something and let me know

if you get the same reaction.

- Yes.

- Let's go.

- I did that when we first met?

- You're still doing it.

- Stay by the car.

- I'll keep it up there and wait.

That's fine.

The FCC does not take

misrepresentation lightly, Mr Barnes.

We made an explanation over the air.

What else do you want?

We fell victim to a practical joke.

It was a mistake.

We're only human, after all.

Damn. Could I borrow your pen?

Well, I've seen the site.

I find it difficult to imagine

that a couple of farm boys

could have pulled off

a hoax like that on their own.

Are you implying

that my station was in on it?

Be realistic.

Hold it!

He's still moving.

- My God!

- Well, well, well.

- What the hell is that?

- Our visitor, I presume.


No! Sam!

I want to take it back.

Give me that case.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Mr Barnes.

We will be in touch with you as soon

as I complete the investigation.

They're on their way right now.

Let's go, Sam.


This way.

Billy, they're coming through.

Stop them, Billy.

... you can stay calm,

those around you will react...

Especially if you have children.


Could I see some ID, please, sir?

Sam, you drive. Jarvis,

get in the car.

Get away from the car, officer.

Get in the car.

He's on the car, Sam!

Get out!

- Get out.

- Get him off!

Get him off.

It's the kid from the spaceship.
