Shawn and Gus get themselves hired onto the case when an unstable lawyer claims his assistant was abducted by aliens.
We open with Young Shawn, Young Gus and their super nerdy friend Dennis making a visit to SBPD to see Henry. They tell him they saw a weather balloon that could pass as a UFO. Henry does not believe them.
Present day, we see a lawyer, Kessler, doing some work in his home. Suddenly, the house begins to shake violently and the TV flickers. He goes for some pills but there arenít any. Just then, a co-worker named Toby arrives with more work and a refill on his pills. All of a sudden a light appears from the sky and a vessel of some sort lands on the lawn. A slender figure comes out and Toby walks towards the light as Kessler pleads with him to stay.
Lassie, Jules and Henry arrive at Kessler's place the next day. The cops immediately dismiss his theory that a UFO abducted Toby. Shawn and Gus arrive and instantly intrigued by Kesslerís theory and decide to take on the case. Henry warns them that itís a bad idea, but they decide to help Kessler anyway. The guys start to analyze the property and notice signs of possible UFO activity. Kessler tells the guys that Toby's car is still there and despite being brand-new will not start.
Shawn and Gus go to visit their old nerd friend Dennis who is now athletic and married to a gorgeous woman named Molly. But the second Molly leaves, Dennis brings Shawn and Gus to a hidden room that is complete with Battlestar Galactica and Star Trek memorabilia, along with a sci-fi style computer set-up to track UFO activity. After Shawn and Gus tell Dennis about Kessler and Toby, Dennis hacks into the national weather service's computer and pulls up the satellite image from the exact moment, place and time that Toby was supposedly abducted. After seeing a weird orb-like aircraft over Kesslerís house, both Shawn and Gus admit they think Toby was abducted. Gus calls Kessler to tell him they believe his story.
Shawn and Gus are called into the station and itís clear they have become a huge joke to everyone. Turns out, Kessler has a history of psychotic episodes and in the past has admitted to seeing UFOs. Toby's story is that Kessler is acting crazy because he wasnít properly taking his meds and that the firm has suspended him for a week as a result. The guys are at a loss for clues until they notice a strange marking on Toby's arm. Gus is still convinced Toby was abducted, but Shawn isn't sure.
Back at Dennis' place they analyze the signs of abduction. Shawn develpps a new theory that Toby tried to embarrass Kessler, since he has now been given all of his cases.
