Britt is dictating a letter to Casey while preparing for a night out. He pours a drink and says that he and his date are having a late dinner. As they talk, the radio announces that a UFO has crashed in a field outside the city. Britt calls Kato in as they listen to a report that the UFO exploded, but not before several individuals fled the saucer. Mike calls and reports that there are rumors of invasion, and people are fleeing the city. Suddenly there’s a burst of smoke and silver-clad figures burst in through the balcony. They subdue Kato with a burst of electricity, and then address Britt by name...Read the full recap
Casey: Why are you masquerading as space people?
Dr. Eric Mabouse: There was a time in my life when I sought the answers to questions that men never even dream of. But then I made the eternally fatal mistake of being ahead of my time. After a long search, I found the answer. Power, Miss Case. Power is what I found. Soon now I shall become a god. The power of life and death in the palm of my hand.
Dr. Eric Mabouse: A fool and his bomb are soon parted.
Dr. Eric Mabouse: I've always been a man of simple tastes, Miss Case. I just like the best: wine, women, and power.
No one seemed to notice that Britt's valet Kato threw a Hornet Dart, recognized as a Green Hornet weapon, at Mabouse.
Why wasn't Britt suspicious that the alien knew that Britt owned the TV station and had a remote hook-up to the station at his home?
The close-up of Mabouse demonstrating putting his "finger on the button" to detonate the bomb shows a gloved hand, but in the rest of the scene Mabouse is not wearing gloves.
