Dr. Cyrus Layton: This is really the greatest day of my life.

Purple Monster: Unfortunately for you, Doctor, it is also the last day of your life.

Dr. Cyrus Layton: Why, who are you?

Purple Monster: My name would mean nothing to you. I've come from the planet which people on Earth call Mars.

Dr. Cyrus Layton: From Mars? But you speak our language.

Purple Monster: I speak all languages. Many years ago, my people invented and perfected a remarkable instrument known as the distance eliminator. With the aid of this device, I've been able to see and hear everything that happens on Earth.

Purple Monster: You are Dr. Cyrus Layton. We've watched the progress of your work and have come to you for help. My own projectile, you see, has no provision for a return journey. I am anxious to see the plans for your jet plane.

Dr. Cyrus Layton: I'm highly flattered, sir. I was afraid that my humble efforts might seem childish to a scientist from Mars.

Purple Monster: On the contrary, this is just what I need. Your launching rocket is far superior to ours, and the anti-gravity device, which assures a safe landing, is superb. Are there other copies of the plans?

Dr. Cyrus Layton: No, this is the only copy. My project is backed by the Scientific Research Foundation. We've tried to keep it more or less a secret until we're ready to let the public know.

Purple Monster: That is a very wise precaution.

Purple Monster: I am not mad. The invasion has only been delayed because of our inability to build ships that could safely land and return to Mars. Your plans have supplied that need.

Dr. Cyrus Layton: Then you landed in the wrong country, my friend. Do you think the American people will sit by and do nothing while you build a jet plane for the purpose of bringing in an army of conquest?

Purple Monster: Yes - because they won't know I'm building it. I intend to build it in the personality of Dr. Cyrus Layton. You see, I have the ability to kill you, enter your body and use it for my own purposes.
