Meanwhile the government finds a spacecraft that crashed nearby Las Vegas and is chasing the two aliens; after the investigation of the men of Major Henry Burke, they discover that the two siblings are the aliens.

Object of unknown origin

is at 90k and descending fast.

Give me a visual track now!

Zero match

with anything on our database.

It's manuevering!

We're registering impact!

Get me Henry Burke, now!

Hey, you think this is it?

This is the real deal.

You'll learn.

Squad and equipment

locked and loaded.

I've rerouted

local law and media.

Impact was 8 minutes ago,

how long until we land?

Imperial droid, drive your geonisian

star fighters to planet... Hollywood.

Die! Die!


Scan the perimeter, no one

gets in and nothing gets out.

Planet Hollywood, please.

They've got everything here!

This place is truly like

being on another planet.

With all this to see every night.

You must never get bored.

Welcome to the...

nut job convention.

I understand your reaction, they

certainly aren't helping our cause.

Our cause?

Educating the public on the legitimate

possibility of life on other planets.

As a matter of fact, I'm giving a lecture

on Astro-physical anamoly detection...

at the...

nut job convention.

Feel free to stop by. Close minded

skeptics are always welcome.

Keep the change.


Dr. Alex Friedman.

A classic.

Hey come on!

Knock it off, will ya?

I need to sleep!

Yeah, me too.

I'm Casey Smith and we're back

with a breaking news alert.

An accident research like.

And I'm Church Agee, we're gonna take

you to our reporter live on the scene.

Officials are calling it the worst

chlorine spill in state history.

A five mile security perimeter

has been established.

Highway Patrol Officers have been rerouting

traffic since the early morning hours.

And we're now being told, this section

of Route 95, will be closed indefinitely.

This is Natalie Gann, reporting.

The cast we pulled outta the trench

indicate a distinct pattern...

alternating between the depth

of the impressions, here and here.

Suggesting not one, but two seperate

E.V.E's that were moving fast.


Possibly humanoid form.

Review every data gathering entity within

a 15 mile radius starting upon impact.

Look out for any anomalies.

Hey you guys gotta

move this thing, I gotta go.


Don't return phone calls anymore?

Mr. Wolf thinks you're being rude.

Tell Wolf that when I said

it was the last time, I meant it.

Mr. Wolf decides

when its the last time.

Not you Jack.

He likes you Jackie.

He hates to see you wasting

your god given driving talent...

giving fat tourists cab rides

up and down the strip.

But we're kinda late for that.

It's what I'm late for.

You got a death wish?

I drive a cab in Vegas.

You're dead, Jack!


What're you doing?

Are you insane?

Now move this thing outta the taxi

zone before I give you a ticket!

See you soon, Jackie.

W... Where'd you come from?


Yeah, I figured that part out

on my own.

- How'd you get in the car?

- Through that portal.

I'm Seth, this is my sister Sara.

We require transportation

services immediately.


- Really?

- Well I require...

- Currency transaction.

- Will this amount suffice?

What did you two,

rob a bank?

Is this acceptable, Jack Bruno?

How'd you know my name?

If we have a deal for your services,

we must move forward rapidly.

It's urgent we get to our

destination without delay.

Alright, alright I'm going.

Where to?

I need an address!

We must travel in that direction.

Well I'm gonna need something more

specific than just... that direction.

We must locate latitude 40.54

cross intersecting longitude...

We're just gonna stick with

that direction.

We tracked the two sets of E.V.E's

foot prints on and off for 7.3 miles.

Finally we lose them at a

rest stop just off the highway.

there was a Highway Patrol

incident report filed at...

at the exact same...

rest stop.

A car trunk was burglarized,

no signs of forced entry...

Give me something better

than that Mr. Pope.

Stolen clothing belonging

to a couple of teenagers.

Alright, we're in the game,

people lets roll with this.

Now two kids, don't walk down

the Highway alone at night.

We got a senior citizens bus landing

roughly at the same time, same rest stop.

Fast forward to, when the passengers

are re-entering the vehicle.

Fast forwarding...





Looks like the bus picked up

some extra baggage.

Route schedule indicates

next stop...

Sin City.

I want total access to every single

surveillance camera Vegas has turned on.

Check office buildings, warehouses,

restrooms, department stores...

look in... sewer systems

if you have to.

ATM's... Freeman Street

and Main to be exact.

Bank records indicate...

They withdrew the entire

contents of the machine...

Fifteen thousand dollars,

and also...

they never used a card, they never

even touched the machine, not once.

These EVE's possess

some extraordinary skills.


Here's the cab company's

security camera.

Keep your eyes

on the back door of the cab.

Right there.

get me a license plate.

They're on transport now.

And no matter what

they appear to look like,

kill 'em...

they're not children.

They're not even human.

Are your parents gonna be okay with

you guys spending all this money?

We have previously agreed

upon our financial deal.

If your concern

is regarding compensation...

My concern is the fact,

that I got a couple of kids...

in the back of my cab

with a big wad of cash,

with a drop off location thats pretty

much in the middle of nowhere.

Now in my book, thats a little

chapter called "running away".

Jack, you better be getting

desert miles on that fare.

And they better be able to pay.

And you better get me an ETA!


I'm losing reception, Dominick.

Jack? Jack?!

Oh, come on!

Jack Bruno, the vehicles behind us

are indicating a pattern of pursuit.

There's no vehicles following.

At your current rate of speed

versus theirs...

they will overtake our vehicle

in less than one minute.

Relax kid!

I'm just gonna let them pass.

Open road people,

it's all yours.

See what'd I tell ya,

nobody is following us.

I'm a king of these roads...

Jack Bruno!

I said I was out and I meant it!

Who is Mr. Wolf, Jack Bruno?

How do you know that...

Get down now!

Hold on.

He is just a cab driver right?

Jack Bruno, it would appear

that we have not eluded them.

I'm so over this.

Stay down, stay down!

Seth, no! It's not a good idea.

- I have to try.

- It's too dangerous.

- Look out!

- Now what?!

Get out, get out!

You two okay?

We are...

We should just keep moving.

Stay here.

What you didn't get the message?

I told Frank and Marty I was out!

You tell Wolf for me that he's

gonna pay for my repairs.

You are in way over your head here.

I want a complete profile of the driver.

You think he's collaborating?

Either way he's a liability.

Get me somebody at transport.

How you two holding up back there?

We're fine.

I'm sorry I dragged you two into all of this.

There's no need for you

to apologize Jack Bruno.

You're not always the one to blame.
