- All the cops have wooden legs!

- They sure do!

- All right, hold on!

- What is it?!

Flat tire! Hold on!

Oh, man.

All right, I'm gonna find

a place to pull over.

Oh, man.

Excuse me.

Hey, I like this place.

Maybe we could build

some houses,

just like

"Gilligan's Island."

"Gilligan's Island"?

After all

that's happened, Annie,

what's wrong

with going home?


- vacation was fine.

- Yeah, fine.

Let's face it, Annie,

it's just not the way

that it was.

Dad, Mom's been dead

for two years.

It's the way it is.

We have lift-off.

Honey, look, why don't you

just hit the cooler,

get yourself some pop?

But stay close,

'cause I want to fix

this tire

and get on home.

Hey, don't go

down there, kid.

There's all kinds

of wild animals and sh*t.

- Who do you belong to?

- Who do you belong to?

Hey! Hey, you!

Hands off!

Are you some kind

of a pervert or something?

Johnny, you know better.

You don't even know this guy.

I don't know you either, okay?

He almost

went over the edge.

There could be badgers

or something down there.

Throw it.

Come on, throw it.

Well, throw it.

Go back, come on.

Wow, bald and flat.

I feel for you, man.

Sometimes life really sucks,

doesn't it?

Looks like you just bought me

a tournament Frisbee, dude.

I can get it back.

No sweat.

Come on. What, are you guys

standing guard? Let's go.

Come on, guys, let's go

the other way, okay?

Johnny, come on.

Ah, ha!

I told you.

Was I right,

or was I right?

No playing here!

You kids oughta

know better than...


You hear it?

It could be anywhere

around here.

Above us, behind us,

or in the ground.

Do you think this is

some kind of joke?

You think this is

some kind of game?!

They're hungry.

All they do is eat.

You got to keep a weathered

eye out all the time!

If you don't watch

every minute... then wham!

Then it's too late.

Who are you?

Any of you ever hear

of a place called Grover's Bend?

It's a real town

with real people.

Now, in 1984...

I was riding my bicycle

and I looked up.

I saw this thing

in the sky.

Call the Army.

They're here!

- Who?

- Who?!


On Earth I was just

a big nobody.

Up in space I am


Charlie bounty hunter.

Yeah, "Charlie

bounty hunter."

Dad's all torn up

and Mom's got

a harpoon thing in her neck,

and they're getting bigger.

You're not

from around here, are you?

I got to go where

the cosmic winds blow me.

I got to...

go where no man

has gone before.

I'm a bounty hunter!

Come on, you can't expect us

to believe this horseshit.

You can believe

what you want, son.

All I know is you got to get away

from here while you still can.

Well, there's something

I can agree with.

So walk away.

There you go.

Probably could've used that lug

wrench a little while longer.

Got it.

You should have had

your spare tire down here.

Could've saved you

some traveling.

Never know when you'll have

a flat tire on an antique like this.

Are you supposed

to be scary?



It ain't me,

it's them.

I've seen them.

I've been

seeing them for...

Look, you believe

in monsters?

- Yeah.

- Good. Good.

That's what

I'm telling you about.

Now, some friends

of mine from...

a long way off,

they gave me

a whole bunch of these.

I only got

a couple left,

but I want you

to have one.

Now if this ever starts

to glow bright green,

that's the time

to watch out for yourself.

And your family.

- Green.

- That's right, green.

Annie! Johnny!

- All aboard!

- We really have to go now.

- Give my regards to Mars.

- Don't be so quick.

You're not as smart
