Good catch!  Assuming Jerry knows of other adjectives other than
"lilting" and "mechanical" then it would appear that the people we saw
at the beginning of 1 and end of 3 are one in the same.  But that would
either mean they are not aliens or that there are aliens living amongst
us in disguise.  After all, how do aliens go about depositing money
into someone's bank account?

"I'd like to open up an account from which I can perform monetary
"Okay.  Will that be in local currency or the currency of your home

See what I mean?  And even if we assume they can transfer money into
her account, wouldn't she have had to have gotten a downpayment first?
Or maybe this isn't the first time she's worked with them and she
trusts them enough to do a job for them and get paid later.
