Ralph and Bill are pursuing some terrorists who steal a train. Ralph chases them but crashes into the train. He's knocked out. So Bill takes him to the hospital. Pam goes there and Ralph wakes up. When he sees Bill, he doesn't recognize him. They deduce that he forgot from the moment he met Bill and they met the aliens because Ralph had a little trouble accepting meeting the aliens so he blocked it out. They try to get him to remember because the train the terrorists took has radioactive material. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com
