'''Kay:''' A ''person'' is smart. ''People'' are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it. Fifteen hundred years ago everybody ''knew'' the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody ''knew'' the Earth was flat,[[note]]Kay actually has this the wrong way around. Since Classical Antiquity and through the Middle Ages, almost every educated person believed that the world was round. In contrast, it took well beyond 1500 AD for the heliocentric model of the solar system to gain acceptance.[[/note]] and fifteen minutes ago, you ''knew'' that humans were alone on this planet. Just imagine what you'll know tomorrow.

The film has spawned two sequels, ''Film/MenInBlackII'' (2002) and ''Film/MenInBlack3'' (2012), an [[WesternAnimation/MenInBlack animated series]], and a [[Ride/MenInBlackAlienAttack theme park ride]]. A [[ContinuityReboot reboot]] of the film series has been discussed and is in development. A {{Crossover}} with ''Film/TwentyOneJumpStreet'' titled ''MIB 23'' is also in the works, and will follow in the latter series' footsteps of parodying film tropes; in this case, it's the [[TheVerse shared film universe concept]] first introduced with the ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse''. While Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are set to reprise their ''Jump Street'' roles, no word has been said as to whether Jones or Smith will do the same for theirs.
