Colonel Lerner: The Alien's gone. So's your man Corliss. General Spaulding: You think Corliss took him? Colonel Lerner: That's exactly what I think. I also think he had to have had help. He had a gun and a Transport Two Manifest. General Spaulding:
He could have stolen them.
Colonel Lerner: Or SOMEBODY could have given them to him. In which case, General, you and I are both prime suspects... and I know I didn't do it. General Spaulding: That dog won't hunt, Colonel.
