When they come to, they discover they are wearing alien helmets that allow them to communicate with the aliens, who tell them that they have relocated to Earth as they were being pursued by the authorities of their own world. They are told that they were captured by the trap that they had set for the police who are currently pursuing them. As the aliens explain, they are alerted that the alien police force has arrived, so they reset the trap, in anticipation of their arrival. At that moment, Vic uses the volume amplifier on his helmet to cause a massive feedback into the aliens' helmets, knocking them backwards in pain. Vic & Carl flee and are pursued by the aliens. Vic & Carl lead them to where the trap was to be sprung on the police, but manage to trap the aliens within it, instead.
