triangle Script

Zed: Okay Let's see. Bee, we've got the deposed Sur-prefect of Singalee touching down in the forest outside Portland tonight.

Bee: Humanoid?

Zed: You wish. Bring a sponge.

Zed: Well well! We’ve got a skimmer.

Kay: Landed alien out of zone. Who is it?

Zed: Redgick. He's not cleared to leave Manhattan, but he's way out of town right now, stuck on the New Jersey Turnpike. Why don't you take junior here with you? This is a good one for him to warm up on. Go get him, tiger.

Jay: Unlimited technology from the whole universe, and we cruise around in a Ford P.O.S.

Kay: Fasten your seat belt.

Jay: See, we’ve got to work on your people skills. You know, you'd get a much better reaction if you were a little more polite.

Kay: Fasten your seat belt, please.

Jay: Whoa! That was good. Did you hurt yourself?

Oh, the red button there, kid. Don't ever, ever touch the red button.

Kay: I'd like to see your license and registration, please.

Kay: I’d like to see your other license and registration, please.

Kay: Alright, your resident alien card has you restricted to island of Manhattan. Where are you going, Redge?

Redge: Well, it's my wife. She's… Well, look.

Kay: Oh. Alright. Okay, no big deal. Okay, you come with me, Redge. And you handle this.

Jay: What! Me?

Kay: Yeah. It's easy. You just catch.

Redge: Are you sure he knows what he's doing?

Kay: He does it all the time. Let the man work.

Jay: Kay! Damn, man! Kay! Something's peaking!

Kay: Croagg the Midwife is at 54th and Madison. You're headed out of town, Redge. What's going on?

Redge: Well, we're meeting someone.

Kay: Who are you meeting?

Redge: Well, it's a ship.

Kay: What ship? I didn’t see any departure clearance for today.

Redge: You didn't?

Kay: No.

Redge: Well, it's an emergency.

Kay: You're doing fine, ace.

Kay: What kind of emergency? What's the rush to get off the planet all of the sudden?

Redge: We just don't like the neighborhood anymore.

Jay: Oh man. Oh man. Kay. Look. Oh, man.

Kay: Congratulations, Redge. It's a squid.

Jay: Kay, man. You know, it’s actually kind of cute.

Kay: Anything about that seem unusual to you? What would scare Redgick so badly that he'd risk a warp jump with a newborn?
