** Averted to between Bug and Laurel. He wanted to eat her, but through her off a ladder instead when he decided fighting to take her as a "snack" on the "long trip" wasn't worth it.

** J tells K not to push the BigRedButton in the gear shift of their CoolCar. This is a reference to ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'', in which Q does the same thing to JamesBond. In Bond's car the button activates an ejector seat, while in the MIB's car it activates a jet engine in the rear.

An agent of a secret organization called the MIB (Men in Black) code-named "K" (Creator/TommyLeeJones) seeks out a new recruit to monitor alien activity on earth. The MIB pass over Navy [=SEALs=] and Green Berets, instead deciding on the quick-thinking and fast-talking NYPD Detective James Edwards (Creator/WillSmith). Without knowing what he was recruited for, James (now codenamed "J") is told that the MIB agency is beyond all government jurisdiction, and that they are responsible for the ''alien'' (and we do mean it) immigrants who have taken residence on Earth. Part of the MIB's effective cover-up is using advanced alien technology to impersonate actual government officials, and especially the use of a device called the Neuralyzer, which is able to give LaserGuidedAmnesia to anyone not wearing special MIB-issue tinted glasses.

* JerkassHasAPoint: K accurately sums up the MIB's need for secrecy by telling J that the only reason average people are able to get on with their lives is that they're not aware that the earth is under constant threat from aliens.

* {{Masquerade}}: The [[TheWorldIsAlwaysDoomed alien shenanigans the MIB deal with put the earth in mortal danger on such a regular basis]] that [[IgnoranceIsBliss humanity simply would not be capable of functioning with that perpetual risk of annihilation looming over them]]. As such, the existence of alien life is kept a total secret from the world, and most aliens are required to use prosthetics or disguises to pass off as human, animal, or machine.
