In a New York City apartment, a young boy named Josh Morrison (Austyn Lind Myers) watches through his telescope an approaching object coming from the sky. It is a golf ball-sized metal ball which flies through the window of his room and lands in his fishbowl, quickly draining the water. He keeps it and shows it at school in a science class presentation. Some months later, on Liberty Island, a massive fireball crash lands. The fireball is actually a spaceship resembling a human (Eddie Murphy). It is controlled by 100 humanoid aliens, each one inch tall. Its captain (also played by Murphy) pilots the spaceship along with his crew from inside its head. For people the spaceship seems fairly human, but odd and with superpowers. A superstitious cop named Officer Dooley (Scott Caan) is desperately searching for the alien.

List of Meet Dave quotes.

(in an alley outside Gina's apartment sometime after she hits Dave with her car) Gina Morrison: Hi, are you all right? Because you just ran off! Captain: Contact, everyone! Our first verbal encounter! (into microphone) Captain: Thank you for your concern. Dave: (speaks with extremely high pitch; bottles explode in background) Captain: It's way too high! More bass! Dave: (speaks in extremely low pitch) Captain: Level the frequency! Dave: (speaking perfectly) I'm all better now. Josh: (to Gina) How hard did you hit this guy?

Captain: Lieutenant Bottoms, what is your status? Lieutenant Bottoms: Captain, we had a small gas leak. It was silent, but not deadly.

(last lines) No. 3 - Cultural Officer: I didn't think we'd make it out of there, Captain. Good thing you have such big feet. Captain: We'll have much to explain when we return home. No. 3 - Cultural Officer: We'll find another way to save Nil. There are plenty of worlds out there for us to explore. Captain: Yes, Number 3. But what we learned on Earth is more valuable than all the salt in the galaxy. And when we do return, it looks like I'll be needing a new Number 2. No. 3 - Cultural Officer: I think you'll be needing more than that. (they kiss; the crew cheers) Captain: Cue the new anthem.
