"I've got to tell you, this was very fascinating," said George Noory, who earlier in the day had attended an "alien implant" removal operation, that was overseen by Dr. Roger Leir, the guest for the first half of Friday's show. Brenda, the patient who had the implant, told George that over the years she had spotted entities in her bedroom, and had had one particularly haunting encounter with a winged humanoid who floated 5ft. off the ground. Dental X-rays eventually revealed the implant which was embedded in the cheek area under her eye.
The operation, of which an audio portion was played on the show, proved to be difficult, Dr. Leir said, as the implant seemed to move every time they attempted to dislodge it. Leir and his associates were aided by the use of a fluoroscan, which allowed them to view the small metallic object during the procedure.
"Thank God for that," said Brenda after the removal of the foreign object which was found to be 3-4mm in length. In previous implant removals, lab results possibly indicated the objects may be a type of nanotechnology, said Leir, whose best guess as to their purpose is that they are "devices for measuring genetic changes about the body," probably of "non-terrestrial" origin.

The latter half of the show was Open Lines, with a special topic line set up for people to make suggestions about George's upcoming Time Travel experiment. One man shared an eerie ghost story of a female figure repeatedly seen moving towards him from a set of trees in Iowa, always in the same manner. Another caller told his dream of a "tsunami wave" washing over a location on the West Coast. George said he had recently received a number of emails from others having similar dreams.
