What Planet Are You From?

Synopsis: A highly advanced civilization, whose citizens feel no emotion and reproduce by cloning, plans to conquer Earth from the inside by sending an operative, fashioned with a humming, mechanical penis, to impregnate a human and stay until the birth. The alien, Harold Anderson, goes to Phoenix as a banker and sets to work finding a mate. His approaches to women are inept, and the humming phallus doesn't help, but on the advice of a banking colleague, he cruises an A.A. meeting, meets Susan, and somehow convinces her to marry him. The clock starts to tick: will she conceive, have a baby, and lose Harold (and the child) to his planet before he discovers emotion and starts to care?

They haven't figured out that round

is the most efficient way to fly.

This will be a snap.

- Remember, get a woman pregnant.

- Give me two days.

Wait for the baby and then come back.

Whatever you do,

don't let anyone know the truth.

We don't want another Roswell

on our hands.

That happened because you made

the mistake of sending H-228-J.

That guy was an idiot

and not as handsome as me.

Nowhere near.

Hi. Hi.

- Hey there. Hey, I like your shoes.

- What?

Let me give you a hand.

Take your seat

and fasten your seat belt.

"Rebecca. "

I always wanted my children to have

a mother named Rebecca. Interested?

Are you all right?

Well, to be honest, I am a little

lightheaded from that perfume.

You smell nice.

Sir, if you don't take your seat,

I'll report you when we land.

Ouch. Kitty likes to scratch.

Anyone sitting here?

Well, there is now. Hi.

- You're shaking.

- I thought we'd crash.

I like it when a woman shakes.

Turns me on.


- I like your shoes.

- Thank you.

- And you smell nice.

- Thank you.

Going to Phoenix

on business or pleasure?

I'm going to see my husband.

He's a pharmacist. He works

in the pharmaceutical industry.

We had a fight before this flight.

You shouldn't fly without saying

"Sorry" or "I love you. "

If I'd died,

he'd still think I was pissed off.

Hey, watch the cart, man!

Do you want me to get you a copy of

the FAA rules and regulations, asswipe?

I do my job, then you do yours.

Stay out of my way!

They'll give anybody a fucking badge.

- Hello, Mr. Jones.

- What we got?

It could be bad air, but judging

from what I've heard from the crew...

...it sounds a little

out of the ordinary.

- How long you been with the department?

- Three months.

I'll do you a favour.

It's never out of the ordinary.

Garry Emmanuel Shandling (November 29, 1949 – March 24, 2016) was an American stand-up comedian, actor, director, writer, and producer. He was best known for his work in It's Garry Shandling's Show and The Larry Sanders Show. Shandling began his career writing for sitcoms, such as Sanford and Son and Welcome Back, Kotter. He made a successful stand-up performance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and became a frequent guest-host on the series. Shandling was for a time considered the leading contender to replace Johnny Carson (other hopefuls were Joan Rivers, David Letterman, and David Brenner). In 1986, he created It's Garry Shandling's Show for Showtime. It was nominated for four Emmy Awards (including one for Shandling) and lasted until 1990. His second show titled The Larry Sanders Show, which began airing on HBO in 1992, was even more successful. Shandling was nominated for 18 Emmy Awards for the show and won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series in 1998, along with Peter Tolan, for writing the series finale. In film, he had a recurring role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing in Iron Man 2 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. He also lent his voice to Verne the turtle in Over the Hedge. Shandling's final performance was as the voice of Ikki in the live-action remake of The Jungle Book. During his three-decade career, Shandling was nominated for 19 Primetime Emmy Awards and two Golden Globe Awards, along with many other awards and nominations. He served as host of the Grammy Awards four times and as host of the Emmy Awards three times. more…
