  • (As the opening credits play, a massive meteorite moves in from the top left to the bottom right; a view of Earth is shown; the meteorite flies toward it and, as its velocity increases, becomes engulfed in a green flame; on Earth, Dexter is laying on a pillow stargazing)
  • Dexter: Ah... The wonders of outer space: The planets, the moon, the sheer scale of it all. It is enough to make me wish upon a star. (sitting up) In fact, I think I'll do just that. My sparkly little friends in the heavens, (standing up) please grant me but one simple wish. I want an alien life form!
  • (Suddenly, the meteorite, which appears to be tiny, lands in front of Dexter; the green flame surrounding it goes out and a substance excretes from the top)
  • Dexter: Thanks!
  • (In Dexter's laboratory; he is running a test on the alien lifeform, as shown with him holding a clipboard; the alien lifeform itself is inside the glass containment container)
  • Dexter: (pats the containment container) Settle down, little trooper. We need to find out what you are made of. (The goo performs a shuttle loop) Don't tell. That is what laboratories are for.
  • (He walks away; after a few moments, the alien lifeform slams itself on the right side of the containment container twice; on the third time, the goo, now covered in a white flash, hits the containment container and cracks it; cut to Dexter typing on two keyboards)
  • Dexter: Sequencing DNA is one of those simple pleasures in life.
  • (He presses the red "ACTIVATE" button with a balled fist; three lasers take aim at the containment container; Dexter pulls a lever; flash to a spinning DNA model on a screen followed by another screen with several zeroes on it as it scrolls upwards; a monitor then flashes white with a "zero" in the middle)
  • Computer: No DNA detected in alien containment container.
  • Dexter: Impossible, unless...
  • (He looks behind him and sees that the alien containment container has been cracked open)
  • Dexter: It escaped!
  • (The alien lifeform is shown quickly slithering down the laboratory; Dexter chases after it)
  • Dexter: Come back here!
  • (He dives onto the alien lifeform and catches it with his hands)
  • Dexter: Gotcha!
  • (The alien lifeform, now split into three, escapes through Dexter's fingers; they all jump into a nearby sink and, one by one, enter the drain; Dexter dives into the sink and ends up getting stuck)
  • Dexter: Drat!
  • (Cut to several drain pipes; the view scrolls downward as the lifeforms are heard squishing through them; fade to black)
  • (In the kitchen from inside the sink faucet, Mom is washing the dishes as the alien lifeform comes out)
  • Mom: I swear, you are the most handsome president.
  • (A view of the plate Mom holds is shown; it depicts the president George Washington surrounded by four cherries and four stars)
  • Mom: (sniffs twice) And you smell like cherries!
  • (She smiles as the camera pans to the plate; the alien lifeform jumps in from the left and towards Mom; she suddenly loses her grip on the plate and it falls onto the kitchen floor shattering to pieces; Mom's back is shown; as the camera rotates to her front, Mom is shown to have a light green pallor with red eyes)
  • Alien Mom: Must build alien transceiver.
  • (Like a snake, Mom slithers over to the kitchen table; she picks up a spoon, pulls the entire tablecloth off, and starts carving a blueprint on the table; the camera quickly moves to Dad, as he is outside washing the family car; he holds the hose nozzle as if he was about to squirt something)
  • Dad: Freeze, F.B.I.!
  • (He steps back and starts spraying water on the car then laughs; suddenly, the water stops squirting and an alien lifeform comes out of the nozzle)
  • Dad: Huh? That's pretty unusual...
  • (A reflection of Dad is shown on the car window; the goo jumps toward Dad; shortly after, a white flash occurs as the hose nozzle and sponge falls to the ground; in the kitchen, Mom continues to carve the blueprint on the kitchen table; Dee Dee's shadow peers in from the top; it then shows Dee Dee standing on the other side of the table as Mom looks at her)
  • Dee Dee: Hi, Mom. Nice blueprint.
  • Alien Mom: Brush your teeth.
  • (Dee Dee licks her teeth with her tongue, then shrugs; as she leaves the kitchen, Dad stands in the entryway; just like Mom, he has a green pallor with red eyes)
  • Dee Dee: Hi, Dad. I'm gonna go brush my teeth.
  • (Dad's head is shown)
  • Alien Dad: Nice blueprint.
  • Alien Mom: Help me with the table.
  • (In the bathroom, Dee Dee enters and walks toward the sink; she picks up her toothbrush, the tube of toothpaste, and squirts it on the bristles; she then starts brushing her teeth, leaving it coated in small puffs of toothpaste; she turns the faucet on; after doing so, the water stops flowing, followed by a small drop, Dee Dee looks on, then becomes shocked)
  • (In Dexter's laboratory, Dexter is seen reaching his hand inside the pipe where the sink used to be; the dirty water on his arm falls to the ground)
  • Dexter: I cannot believe I have been reduced to a plumber.
  • (Cut to the lab doors; it opens with a green glow and silhouettes of Mom, Dad, and Dee Dee are standing in the entryway; Dexter looks)
  • Dexter: Wha--?
  • (The aliens all stare at Dexter with despondent looks)
  • Dexter: Mom! Dad! Dee Dee, you have exposed my secret-- (he catches on to what he says) uh, present, ha ha... (he has three sweat drops on his left side) for our beloved parents' anniversary. It is a game room!
  • (He coyly smiles)
  • Computer: Dexter, alien lifeforms detected in laboratory.
  • (Dexter pulls out a radar-like device and uses it to scan his family; on the radar screen, silhouettes of Mom, Dad, and Dee Dee are shown as "ALIEN LIFEFORMS" blinks over them; they all have the alien lifeforms inside their heads)
  • Alien Mom: Must build alien transceiver.
  • Alien Dad: Must contact Mothership.
  • Dee Dee: (with an alien voice that sounds near robotic) Must take you in for reconditioning.
  • (The alien Dee Dee grabs Dexter)
  • Dexter: No, Dee Dee, no!
  • (Dee Dee takes her brother to the bathroom, opens the shower door, and throws Dexter in there; she turns the hot water valve and forcefully closes the door; Dexter watches as the green alien goo comes out of the shower head; when it nears his face, he grabs it)
  • Dexter: Oh, no! You're not getting me that easy!
  • (He punches the lifeform; it hits his cheek; Dexter rubs his mouth, then lunges at the alien lifeform and grabs it; he throws it downward and stomps on it five times then performs a karate-like yell; outside the shower door, the alien lifeform slides down the walls)
  • Dexter: Now to reclaim my lab, my family, and save the world from being taken over by aliens. But how? I just cannot think in this confined space.
  • (Wipe to Dexter sitting on top of the toilet)
  • Dexter: Much better. Hmm... (he gets an idea as a ding sound plays) Got it!
  • (Cut to Dexter's lab; Aliens Mom and Dad are working on the transceiver; the lab doors open, showing a silhouette of Dexter in a green light)
  • Alien Dad: Zyborg, welcome to the fold.
  • Dexter: (imitating an alien voice) Ah, your wish is my command.
  • (He winks)
  • Alien Dad: Please help your mother with the tripolar connections.
  • Dexter: (while walking like a robot) Yes, but first, I have to check on the bipolar connectors.
  • Alien Dad: Yes, of course.
  • (Dexter walks toward the Robots compartment and enters; he laughs to himself as the door closes)
  • Dexter: They fell for it! Now, which one to use?
  • (Several of Dexter's old inventions are shown as the camera pans from the left to the right; it stops on the Dex-Transformer, which is surrounded by a spotlight)
  • Dexter: Ah, yes, the Dex-Transformer. I haven't used him since the whole dodgeball incident. But he should do just fine.
  • (Back in the lab; the Alien Mom is working on the satellite dish)
  • Alien Mom: Where is Zyborg?
  • Alien Dad: He is checking the bipolar connectors.
  • Alien Mom: There are no bipolar connectors.
  • Dexter: (offscreen) Yo, aliens! You picked the wrong day to take over this planet!
  • Alien Dad: Sister Unit, destroy Zyborg!
  • (Cut to a close up of Alien Dee Dee's face; she growls)
  • Dexter: Bring it on, sister!
  • (Alien Dee Dee jumps at Dexter fists ablaze; Dexter fires a laser at her using the palms of the Dex-Transformer; Alien Dee Dee turns red as the laser blasts affect her; she then turns into black ash and falls to the ground)
  • Dexter: Now it's my turn.
  • (He leaps into the air and fires two missiles at his alien parents, who stand with their backs on each other as the missiles fly past them)
  • Alien Dad: Your time is up, Earthling.
  • (Alien Dad assumes a pose; Alien Mom climbs on top of him as Alien Dad wraps his hands around her legs; Alien Dee Dee climbs on top of Alien Mom, who catches her legs with her hands)
  • Dexter: Oh!
  • (The alien family, taking on a totem pole-like stance, performs a flying spin kick towards Dexter; Alien Dad punches Dexter; Alien Dee Dee kicks him, and Alien Mom knocks him back with her fist)
  • Dexter: (coming to) Okay, you alien scum. It is time for you to come in pieces!
  • (He jumps toward them)
  • Alien Dad: Bring...
  • Alien Mom: It on...
  • Alien Dee Dee: Earthling!
  • (They jump toward Dexter; Dexter punches his alien mother and sister, kicks Alien Dad's stomach, then punches them with an uppercut; he then slams all three of them on the ground as if he was beating a carpet; the aliens are kicked, punched, and hit with an uppercut once more; Dexter yells out as he spins around firing energy blasts from the palms of the Dex-Transformer's hands)
  • (Alien Dad, Mom, and Dee Dee all fall over battered and bruised; they are engulfed in a green flash as the alien lifeforms escape their hosts; before they got far, Dexter stomps them with the Dex-Transformer's foot, then raises one of the transformer's fists in victory; fade to black)
  • (Fade in to Mom and Dad's bedroom; Dexter opens the door and peers inside)
  • Dexter: How is everybody doing?
  • (The family is shown in bed; everyone has bruises and thermometers in their mouths while Dad has an ice pack on his head)
  • Dad: Man, this flu stuff hits you hard.
  • Mom: Mm-hmm...
  • Dee Dee: You said it.
  • Dexter: (chuckles) The flu, right.
  • (He chuckles once more as the iris closes to black on him)
