Det här behandlas i officiella novellering . Även om filmen skär direkt till nästa scen, har det i verkligheten varit ett ganska rimligt gap eftersom Jay flashy-thing'd Kay. Under det här interregnumet har Jay uppenbarligen fått en handledning från Zed och har blivit en expert på MiB: s dagliga verksamhet:
The summer was winding down, he'd learned a whole bunch of stuff from Zed in a real short time, and things were looking better. No more bugs, at least, the A's and B's had taken their galaxy and gone home. At least the world didn't depend on his next move. Not today, anyhow. Now, he was doing a little research
"How long do we keep doing this? I mean, without letting the secret out?"
"Long as the neuralyzers work, I guess."
"Come on, Jay. You know what I mean."
He nodded. Yeah, he knew. He shook his head. "I don't know. Kay and I weren't together too long and not really much into policy, being kinda busy and all. We're just the street cops. I guess we just keep plugging the holes in the dike until somebody upstairs decides the world is ready to know there really are aliens among us."
Även om hon är extremt boksäker, kommer Elle självklart att vara juniorpartner i sitt lag med tanke på hennes relativa brist på poliserande erfarenhet.
