They're outside London. They're in Naples. We've got them between here and Fresno, outside Sacramento, two on Long Island."
  • (Gene Barry) "They're just coming down at random?"
  • (Major General Mann) "No. According to information from foreign sources, they're working to some kind of a plan. Now what it may be isn't clear yet. Simply because once they begin to move, no more news comes out of that area."
