extraterrestrials seeded life on Earth.

Hey guys.

Hey Jake.

Hey guys, look, another sighting. again Charles, really?

More like the wackopedia.

Charles, let's be logical for a moment.

If advanced beings

with the ability to travel

anywhere in the universe

actually exist...

Why would they visit Brightwood?

To make sure we're

not a threat, obviously.

A threat?

They have like warp drive

and interdimensional propulsion.

Yeah, we have your mom's minivan.

Definitely not a threat.

Hey dude, will you get out of my bag?

Where are the chips, Einstein?

Leave it alone.

It's a Wi-Fi amplifier, idiot.

Wow, that's fascinating.

Can it amplify this?

You're a massive nerd.

I need your skills again.

You really suck at this.

What do you want me to change it to?

I don't know,

a B minus or something.

Oh, come on!

No waffles?

This town sucks!

I heard she got cancer.

Who, Polly?

I heard this one kid got it,

and his entire family died.

They had like these boils and pus...

Ow, what was that for?



Sorry, man.

I bet you miss him, huh?


Hey Mikey, check this out!

Whoo! Wall and peace!

Michael Emory...

It's no use running, son.

Allan Farraday.

Here to rescue the world from the

horrors of street art?

This is three, Mike.

Three strikes.

You got me.

I give up, cuff me.

Get in the car.

You gonna take me in or what?

I'm taking you home.

No need to upset your mother today.

We're all very fond of Jennifer,

aren't we?


Your mom's a good woman.

Good morning, Doris.

Mrs. Mercher, how are you today?

Oh doctor, I'm dying!


I'm crossing over.

I know I am.

Reduce your caffeine intake

and try to stay away from

processed foods.

I don't have the cancer?

Uh no, Mrs. Mercher,

you're suffering from migraines again.

I'm gonna send you for an eye exam.

- Migraines?

- Mmm.

Oh doctor, thank you.

You really know how to

put an old lady at ease.

- Thank you, doctor.

- Bye now.

- Bye.

- Bye bye.

I think you have a fan there.


I have news.

They've sent someone.

He finally got their attention.

Two years.

This is just the beginning.

The investigator will be

at town meeting on Saturday.

Sure you're okay?


Hey Mike.

Do yourself a favor and

stay away from that Jonas kid.

Do us both a favor and

stay away from my mother.

Looks like little Jakey's

got a girlfriend.

Police escort again.

Real nice.

Hey, stop it!

Why do you have to be

such a jerk all the time?

I'm good with it.


Hey, Jennifer.

What a pleasant surprise.

Unfortunately, it's a business call.

It's Mike again.


It's okay, I let him off

with a final caution.

Thank you.

Don't thank me yet.

I do what I can to keep these

kids out of the system.

But Mike, he is really pushing it.

Okay, I'll talk to him.

Oh, um...

get together soon?

Yeah, I'd like that.

Michael Emory, you and I

are gonna have a big talk.

Did you hear what I said?


Whatever, Jennifer.

Excuse me, I'm your mother!




I just had a chat with

Officer Farraday, is what.

Do you have something to say to me?

Not really.


How is Allan?

If it wasn't for Allan Farraday,

you'd be sitting in the

slammer right now!

All he wants to do is get in your--

Don't you dare finish that sentence!
