** What makes it even funnier is -why-it does that...the baby UFO that was moving in front of it made a stop at the sign near the road, as if it was confused about where to go. As soon as the third UFO passed it by and made the turning signal, the second UFO reacted in a manner that could be interpreted as "oh, we go THAT way, alright!" as it follows.

* During the musical First Contact with the Mother Ship, the human sound crew keeps repeating the five-tone motif even though the Mother Ship is clearly playing new tones [[GeniusBonus trying to teach us more of the language.]] Finally frustrated that we're not learning, the Mother Ship blasts out the final two notes DAAAAAA-DUUUUUMMMMMMMMMM, smashing windows and forcing us to pay attention.
