"The Long Goodbye Syndrome" is the first episode of Men in Black: The Series. It originally aired on October 11, 1997, and was written by Duane Capizzi and directed by Frank Paur.


On a mission to help stop a Skraaldian multiplication in a sewer, there was a struggle against one. Jay fires a Noisy Cricket at it, blowing it up. Now, he's a wanted target for every other Skraaldian on their home planet, Skraal. And since the Skraaldians have a hive mentality and are locked on to his DNA, It won't be easy for Jay to escape. Only Kay can get him out of it. But will he in time? And why does nobody seem worried?


The episode begins with Jay and Kay coming to a scene of firefighters on a scene of a cat in a tree, claiming to be Fire Marshall Division 6. Jay climbs the tree to get the alien, but he realizes that the cat is not an alien, but the tree is. As the tree runs away, Kay shoots it, and neuralyzes the firefighters.
