       FADE IN:


       EXT. INTERSTATE 70 - WEST - DAY


       A Ford Taurus drives down a stretch of highway.


       ON SCREEN CAPTION: Interstate 70 - West 
                                                   Roswell, NM


       INT. THE TAURUS - SAME


       FOX MULDER is behind the wheel, and DANA SCULLY is beside him. Mulderís 
       suit jacket is on the seat back as he picks sunflower seeds out of an open bag 
       on the dash. Scully types on a laptop.


                           SCULLY
                 I canít believe I let you talk me into this, Mulder.


                           MULDER
                 Talk you into what, Scully?


                           SCULLY
                 This.


       Scully looks out the window at the arid landscape.


                           SCULLY
                 Tumbleweeds and tarantulas. 


                           MULDER
                 Do you know you have any idea where weíre 
                 headed, Scully?  


                           SCULLY
                 Yeah, Roswell, New Mexico. Whatís the big deal?


                           MULDER
                 The big deal? Scully, Iím surprised at you. Surely 
                 even a skeptic such as yourself has heard of the 
                 legendary Roswell, New Mexico?


                           SCULLY
                 What Iíve heard, Mulder, is merely conjecture and 
                 unsubstantiated rumors about a supposed space 
                 craft that crashed landed in 1947, but that no one 
                 has been able to adequately prove itís existence 
                 beyond a shadow of a doubt, scientifically or 
                 otherwise.


                           MULDER
                 Come on, Scully. Even you have to admit that 
                 thereĎs way to much ďrumor and conjectureĒ to just 
                 dismiss this as a case of an urban legend run amuck, 
                 donít you? 


       Mulder looks at Scully who doesnít respond.


                           MULDER
                 The alien bodies that they found around the crash 
                 site? The piece of metal that doesnít correspond to 
                 any of the 92 elements on the periodic table of the 
                 elements? Why the Fox network keeps airing 
                 specials like ďWhen Good Times Go Bad and 
                 Animals Attack?Ē


       Scully looks at Mulder doubtingly.


                           MULDER
                 All right, Ms. Catalogue and Classify. Tell you what. 
                 You can spend the entire trip trying to prove to me 
                 that everybody else and I are the victim of some 
                 kind of mass delusion if you want, and I wonít say a 
                 word.


       Scully considers Mulderís offer.


                           SCULLY
                 All right. But I could have done that back in our 
                 Albuquerque, office and saved us the trip.


                           MULDER
                 Yeah, but whereís the fun in that?


       Mulder turns to Scully and smiles as Scully shakes her head and goes back to 
       typing on her laptop. Mulder reaches for the back of sunflower seeds and 
       realizes that it is empty.


                           MULDER
                 Damn.


                           SCULLY
                 What? Not having any fun yet?


       Mulder looks at Scully as if to say, ďvery funnyĒ.


       EXT. INTERSTATE 70 - WEST - SAME


       The Taurus drives by a sign: WELCOME TO ROSWELL, NM.


       EXT. THE CRASHDOWN CAFE - DAY


       People walk by the Alien theme eatery. 


       INT. THE CRASHDOWN CAFE - CONTINUOUS


       The place is packed. LIZ PARKER, dressed in her waitress uniform, carries two 
       full orders in both hands as she emerges from the kitchen. MARIA De LUCA, 
       also in a uniform, carries a bin full of dirty dishes the opposite way.


                           MARIA
                 It never stops.


                           LIZ
                 Tell me about it.


       Liz walks the orders over to two CUSTOMERS sitting at a booth.


                           LIZ
                 Thatís one Independence Day, no fries. And one X-
                 Files, no mustard.


                           CUSTOMER#1
                 Thank you.


                           CUSTOMER#2
                 Thank you.


                           LIZ
                 Do you guys need anything else?


                           CUSTOMER#2
                 Not thanks. Weíre fine.


       Liz nods and walks back toward the rear and passes MAX EVANS and 
       MICHAEL GERRAND who sit in a booth eating pieces of pie. Max gently grabs 
       Lizís arm.


                           MAX
                 Excuse me, could we have more...


       Max holds up an empty bottle of Tabasco sauce. Smiling, Liz takes the bottle 
       from Max.


                           LIZ
                 Anything else, sir?


                           MAX
                 No, thatíll be fine.


       Max and Liz wink at one another as Liz walks off. 


                           MICHAEL
                 God, you two got it bad.


                           MAX
                 Oh, yeah. Like you and Maria donít have the warm 
                 and fuzzies for each other?


       Michael points a finger at Max.


                           MICHAEL
                 Thatís...


                           MAX
                 What?


       Michael struggles for the words.


                           MICHAEL
                  ...Different. 


                           MAX
                 Uh, huh.


       Max takes a bite of pie as Michael shakes his head.


                           MICHAEL
                 I donít know what it is about that girl, but she makes 
                 me just want to...


                           MAX
                 What?


                           MICHAEL
                 I donít know! Strangle her to death sometimes.


                           MAX
                 And other times?


                           MICHAEL
                 I donít know.


       Max smiles at Michael. 


                           MAX
                 You got it bad.


       Maria walks up and puts the Tabasco on the table.


                           MARIA
                 One extremely sweet and extremely spicy. Got what 
                 bad?


       Michael looks up at Maria.


                           MICHAEL
                 Nothing. Itís nothing. 


       Michael takes the Tabasco and drenches his piece of pie.  Maria looks at Max 
       who appears caught off guard.


                           MARIA
                 I see. Max?


                           MAX
                 I, uh...


       Michael looks directly at Max.


                           MAX
                 Donít know either.


                           MARIA
                 Right. Thatíll be five seventy five, and unless you 
                 two donít have someplace else to be, I suggest you 
                 make room for the lunch time crowd and quit 
                 loitering?


                           MICHAEL
                 What lunch time crowd?


       The overhead bell RINGS as the front door opens. Max, Michael and Maria turn 
       and see MULDER and SCULLY walk in. Mulder and Scully both wear their suit 
       jackets as Liz walks up to them with a pair of menus.


                           LIZ
                 Hi, welcome to the Crashdown Cafe. Where would 
                 you like to sit?


                           MULDER
                 The counter.


                           SCULLY
                 A booth.


       Liz looks at Mulder and Scully, confused.


                           LIZ
                 Right.


                           MULDER
                 Weíll take the booth.


       Liz walks Mulder and Scully over to the booth directly behind Michael and Max. 
       Mulder sits with his back to Maxís booth, and Scully sits opposite him as Liz 
       puts open menus on the table.


                           LIZ
                 Our specials today are the Will Smith and Sigourney 
                 Weaver. Can I get you anything to start with? Drinks,  
                 maybe?


                           MULDER
                 A coffee would be nice.


                           SCULLY
                 Make that two.


                           LIZ
                 Two coffees it is. Sugar and cream?


                           MULDER
                 Lots of Sugar.


                           SCULLY
                 Black.


                           LIZ
                 Right. One black, one cream. Iíll be right back.


       Liz walks away.


                           MULDER
                 Well, what do you think Scully? Have they managed 
                 to crass to a new, commercial level?


       Scully looks around the cafe and sees Alien memorabilia, the real gaudy kind 
       (orange stuffed aliens, Roswell tee-shirts, etc.), then looks at Mulder.


                           SCULLY
                 I think crass is being generous. Itís tumbleweeds and 
                 tourists. You donít actually expect me to believe 
                 thereís some validity behind any of this is there?


                           MULDER
                 You said it yourself, Scully.  There is no substantial 
                 evidence to prove or disprove it either way.


                           SCULLY
                 However, I think what itís obvious that what these 
                 people have done is taken a myth, a modern lore if 
                 you will, and constructed a truth around it that helps 
                 perpetuate a reinforcing reality that helps boost the 
                 economic prospects of an otherwise dead and dreay 
                 town.


                           MULDER
                 And you said you werenít gonna have any fun?


       At the back of the cafe, Liz pours two cups of coffee as Maria stands next to 
       her.


                           MARIA
                 Who are the suits?


       Liz and Maria look over and see Mulder and Scully talking to one another. Lizís 
       gaze shifts to Max who smiles slightly.


                           LIZ
                 I donít know. Just people passing by I suppose.


                           MARIA
                 Well, I donít know about you... But the guy looks 
                 kinda cute.


                           LIZ
                 How can you tell? All you can see is the back of his 
                 head.


                           MARIA
                 Heís a vibrator, Liz. Trust me.


                           LIZ
                 Theyíre probably married.


                           MARIA
                 What makes you say that?


                           LIZ
                 The way they talk. Only people who are married talk 
                 like that.


                           MARIA
                 Oh, really. What about people who have been 
                 through some incredible circumstances, huh? Huh, 
                 ring any bells?


                           LIZ
                 Okay, ha, ha. You got me. 


       Maria takes the cups of coffee from Liz who appears confused.


                           LIZ
                 What are you doing?


                           MARIA
                 Here. Let me handle Mr. and Mrs. Petticoat, while 
                 you got and talk to Max.


       Liz turns around and sees Max smiling at her as Michael rambles on.


                           LIZ
                 You are such a good friend.


                           MARIA
                 And a pretty one, too.


       Maria walks up to Mulder and Scullyís booth and sets the coffee down.


                           MARIA
                 There you go. One coffee with cream, one black.


                           MULDER
                 Thank you.


       Mulder and Scully slide the saucers across the table to each other.


                           SCULLY
                 Whereís the other waitress who was waiting on us?


                           MARIA
                 Oh, uh, we like to help each other out when it gets 
                 real busy like this.


                           MULDER
                 Is it always this busy?


                           MARIA
                 It depends. 


                           MULDER
                 I see. Are you from around here?


                           MARIA
                 Yeah. Born and raised.  Not like thatís anything to be 
                 proud of though...


                           MULDER
                 So, you probably know a lot about the crash then?


                           MARIA
                 Yeah, I suppose. I mean, I wasnít around when it 
                 happened like you two were...


       Mulder and Scully shoot each other knowing looks...


                           MARIA
                 ... I mean -- Not that you guys look that old. Oh, God. 
                 Itís been a long day.


       Mulder smiles.


                           MULDER
                 Itís okay. So, do you believe in extra terrestrials?


       Mariaís eyes move toward Michael and Max, then back to Mulder.


                           MARIA
                 Yeah. I suppose...


       Mulder nods and takes off his jacket. Maria immediately notices Mulderís SIG 
       SAUER pistol in his waist holster, and her eyes go wide. 


                           MULDER
                 Itís okay. Weíre both FBI agents.


       Maria notes this, but remains calm. Max turns around in the booth with an 
       concerned look on his face.


                           MARIA
                 Oh. I see.


                           SCULLY
                 Weíre just here to check the crash site.


                           MULDER
                 My partner doesnít believe in aliens.


                           MARIA
                 Thatís too bad. I have to go now.


                           SCULLY
                 But what about our order?


       Max watches Maria rush to the back of the cafe where she converses with Liz.


                           MICHAEL
                 What? What is it?!


       Michael turns around and sees Maria whispering to Liz. Max then turns an ear 
       to Mulder and Scullyís booth:


                           SCULLY
                 Thatís very strange, Mulder.


                           MULDER
                 Whatís strange? Sheís just a kid. You know how you 
                 were at that age, Scully.


                           SCULLY
                 I donít know. Something doesnít seem right here.


       Mulder turns around -- Max quickly faces Michael -- And sees Maria talking to Liz 
       in a secretive manner. Mulder then turns to Scully.


                           MULDER
                 Youíre right. I think we may have stumbled upon the 
                 greatest secret known to man:  Teenage girls like to 
                 talk while theyíre on the job. Quick call the FBI office 
                 in D.C. Alert the media. 


       On the other side of the booth, Maxís eyes go wide.


                           SCULLY
                 Very funny, Mulder. Thatís not what I meant...


       Max gets up...


                           MICHAEL
                 What?


       Max walks over to Liz and Maria. 


                           LIZ
                 The two sitting in the booth are FBI?!


                           MARIA
                 Yeah.


                           LIZ
                 FBI? Are you absolutely sure?


                           MARIA
                 Positive. The guy told me so himself.


                           MAX
                 Sheís right. I overheard them talking. Why did they 
                 say theyíre here?


                           MARIA
                 They said theyíre here to check out the crash site.


                           MAX
                 Is that all?


                           MARIA
                 Yeah.


       Michael now stands beside Maria, Max and Liz.


                           MICHAEL
                 Whatís going on guys?


       Mulder sees the group conversing at the back of the cafe and turns to face 
       Scully.


                           MULDER
                 Looks like sheís quite the social butterfly.


                           SCULLY
                 Well, I wish she would spin a cocoon and take our 
                 order then.


       At the back of the restaurant...


                           MICHAEL
                 FBI? Oh, man. This bites. This canít be good news. I 
                 knew they had to be calling in reinforcements. Damn!


                           MAX
                 Agreed. I think we better leave out the back.


                           LIZ
                 Wonít that raise suspicions?


                           MAX
                 Well, I figure theyíre already on to us, why walk right 
                 out into a trap, and make it easy for them?


       Liz nods.


                           LIZ
                 Be careful


                           MAX
                 I will. Catch you later?


                           LIZ
                 Always.


       Michael and Maria stand  looking at each other, not knowing what to say or do.


                           MARIA
                 Well... So, long.


                           MICHAEL
                 Yeah, you too.


       Michael and Maria donít move. Then Max starts for the back door as...


       THE FRONT DOOR


       Bursts open and THREE GUNMEN walk in wearing Alien masks and carrying 
       handguns. The leader is big, and wears a GRAY ALIEN mask. The other two are 
       tall and thin and wear GREEN ALIEN masks. Everybody becomes panic 
       stricken.


                           GRAY ALIEN
                 All right, this is hold up! Everybody get their heads 
                 down now!


       Max, Michael, Maria and Liz all stand at the back, petrified.


       Mulder quickly unclips his HOLSTER from his right hip, and puts it next to him on 
       the seat on the left side, away from the gunman. Scully and Mulder then rest 
       their heads on the table.


       Gray Alien walks forward sweeping his gun over the terrified customers.


                           GRAY ALIEN
                 My associates and I are here for the money, only! If 
                 there are no heroes, weíll be gone in less than a 
                 minute and you can all go back to your boring little 
                 lives!


       Gray Alien beckons Maria with his gun.


                           GRAY ALIEN
                 You, Miss. You look like your work here. Open the 
                 register now!


                           MARIA
                 Me?


                           GRAY ALIEN
                 Yes, you. 


       Maria slowly walks away from Max, Liz and Michael. Gray Alien grabs Maria by 
       the back of the neck and nearly rams her head through the cash register. 


       Michael looks like he wants to rip Gray Alienís fucking head off.


                           GRAY ALIEN
                 Open it! Come on, I donít got all day!


       Maria, with tears in her eyes, opens the register. Gray Alien throws her aside 
       as the two Green Aliens walk to the service station.


       Mulder and Scully nod to one another.


       MULDER


       Stands up with his pistol aimed directly at the group of Aliens.


                           MULDER
                 Federal Officer! Throw down your weapons and put 
                 your hands over your head!


       SCULLY


       Stands with her gun aimed at the Aliens as well.


       MARIA


       Covers against a wall, crying.


                           GRAY ALIEN
                 Oh, no. You gotta be kidding me.


                           SCULLY
                 Federal Agents! Drop your weapons now!


       Michael, Max and Liz stand in numbed shock. Gray Alien grabs MARIA and puts 
       his gun to her head.


                           GRAY ALIEN
                 No. You drop it!


                           MICHAEL
                 No!


       Michael tries to rush over, but Max stops him. Gray Alien points his gun at 
       Michael and then back at Mulder and Scully.


                           MULDER
                     (to Michael)
                 Just stay there! Everythingís gonna be fine!


                           GRAY ALIEN
                 Thatís what you think. Now, you two better drop your 
                 guns or...


       As Gray Alien continues on in the b.g. Max looks down the wall which leads to 
       the front of the cafe. It has alien memorabilia, most of which is mounted by wires 
       or in heavy frames.


                           SCULLY
                 Listen to me. There is no way out of here. Now, let 
                 the girl go.


                           GRAY ALIEN
                 And give up our only insurance policy? Right. The 
                 way I see it...


       Max walks over to the wall and puts both  hands on it. Maxís hands start to glow 
       as he closes his eyes. 


                           GRAY ALIEN
                 ...Youíre out gunned. Weíre the ones in control. So 
                 itís you who better drop their weapons.


       THE ROOM


       Begins to shake. The wall next to Gray Alien tremors violently as alien props 
       sway back and forth.


       Mulder, Scully, and everybody else look around, confused.


                           GRAY ALIEN
                 What the...


       ALIEN PICTURES


       In heavy frames leap off he wall and hit Gray Alien. Gray Alien looses his 
       bearings as Maria is tossed aside.


       MULDER


       Fires his gun and hits...


       GREEN ALIEN#1


       Squarely in the chest. Green Alien#1 FIRES into the air and hits the 
       OVERHEAD SPRINKLERS as he falls to the floor. Water falls from the ceiling 
       as...


       SCULLY


       Fires her gun and hits...


       GREEN ALIEN#2


       In the shoulder. Green Alien#2 staggers forward amid SCREAMS and FIRES.


       SCULLY


       Is HIT in the lower abdomen and falls to the floor.


                           MULDER
                 Scully!


       GREEN ALIEN#2


       Is almost out the front door when...


       MULDER


       Shoots Green Alien#2 twice, sending Green Alien#2 backwards through the 
       front window. Green Alien#2 lands on the sidewalk, dead.


       Mulder rushes over to Scully as the water begins to pool around her.


       Michael rushes over to Maria as Maria buries her head in Michaelís chest.


       GRAY ALIEN


       Sees Mulder kneeling over Scully. Gray Alien points his pistol at Mulderís back 
       as...


       LIZ


       Knocks the gun out of Gray Aliens hand with a FRYING PAN. 


       MULDER


       Whips around and sees...


       MAX


       Sack Gray Alien into the wall like a NFL Quaterback. Gray Alien lays on the floor 
       unconscious.


       Mulder turns back to Scully. Mulder tears open her blouse to reveal a crimson 
       pool of blood oozing from a hole in her stomach.


                           MULDER
                 Scully? Scully? Come on, you have to stay with me.


       Michael leads Maria to the back as Max and Liz watch Mulder. 


                           MULDER
                     (to Liz)
                 Call an ambulance! Tell them thereís been a felony 
                 assault on a federal agent and that sheís has been 
                 shot! Go!


       Liz runs to the phone and starts punching buttons. As Liz speaks in the b.g...


                           MULDER
                 Come on, Scully.


       Scully is barely lucid. Mulder presses his hand over the wound. Max looks at 
       Liz, knowingly. A moment of indecision passes between Max and Liz. Michael 
       looks at Max and shakes his head ďnoĒ.


                           MULDER
                 Stay with me, Scully. Stay with me!


       Mulder grabs Scullyís limp hand.
