In present-day America, Agent K is a member of an organization that has been keeping track of extra-terrestrial aliens on Earth for over 40 years. When K finds himself in need of a new partner, a brash NyPD detective, James Edwards fills the position, becoming Agent J. Armed with space-age technology (which J barely understands) and their razor-sharp wits, J and K investigate a newcomer who is bad news for Earth.

- Edgar: I go out, I work my butt off to make a living, all I want is to come home to a nice clean house with a nice fat steak on the table, but instead I get this. It looks like poison. Don't you take that away, I'm eating that, damn it. It is poison, isn't it? I swear to God I would not be surprised if it was, the way you skulk around here like a dog that's been hit too much or ain't been hit enough, I can't make up my mind. You're useless, Beatrice. The only thing that pulls its weight around here is my goddamn truck. [Just then, a flying saucer smashes his truck, and Edgar comes out of the house to look at the damage] Edgar: Figures.
Kay: All right... That's confiscated. All of it. And I want you on the next transport off this rock or I'm gonna shoot you where it don't grow back. Jay: [shaken] Yeah and... and... and I'm gonna be back to talk about them Rolexes.
Zed: We're not hosting an intergalactic kegger down here.
Dr. Weaver: What's with the cat? Cop in Morgue: Oh, the cat. Yeah, well, there's a problem with the cat. Sign here. Dr. Weaver: [signing] What's the problem with the cat? Cop in Morgue: It's your problem. Heh heh heh. Dr. Weaver: I hate the living.
Kay: All right, Beatrice, there was no alien. The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus. Jay: Wait a minute. You just flash that thing, it erases her memory, and you just make up a new one? Kay: A standard issue neuralyzer. Jay: And that weak-ass story's the best you can come up with? Kay: On a more personal note Beatrice, Edgar ran off with an old girlfriend. You're gonna go stay with your mom a couple nights. You're gonna get over it and decide you're better off. Jay: Well, yeah, you know, 'cause 'cause he never appreciated you anyway. In fact, you know what - you kicked *him* out. And now that he's gone you're gonna go into town, you go to Bloomingdale's and find some nice dresses, get yourself some shoes, you know, find somewhere, maybe you can get a facial. And, uh, oh - hire a decorator to come in here quick, 'cause... *damn*.
