Little Green Man: I want to go to Mars.
Driver: Sorry, mate; this is a no.9; it only goes to the town centre.
SFX Heat Ray-zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzap!
Passenger: Here! You’ve just disintegrated the driver!
LGM: He wouldn’t take me to Mars!
Passenger: This is the no.9; it only goes to the town centre! You want the 7b; it leaves from ‘that stop over there’ in about twenty minutes.
LGM: Oh. Thank you.
LGM gets off bus and walks to other bus stop.
Passenger(to another passenger): He was a nice polite, ah… alien, wasn’t he?
2nd Passenger: Apart from disintegrating the driver.
Passenger: Well, yes, apart from that. I hope he catches his bus.
2nd Passenger: Was it a ‘he?’
Passenger: Well, I don’t know; but, it would have been rude to call him an ‘it’ wouldn’t it?
2nd Passenger: Yes, I suppose so.
