When the alien Leeloo fell from the sky in the roof of his cab wrapped in thermal bandages, she asks him to take her to a priest, Vito Cornelius.
Upon their arrival, they realize she is The Fifth Element and Vito leaves. Dallas tries to wake her by kissing her and then she holds his gun against him and says a foreign language. Then Dallas apologizes and asks what is her name and when Cornelius and other priests make their arrival, they ask for Dallas's name before he takes his leave. Dallas goes home and explains to Finger why he didn't show and orders food and then gets a call from his mom.
Somehow he won the Gemini Crocket Contest, which was actually rigged by the Federal Army to re-enlist him so they can send him to Fhloston Paradise to get 4 elemental stones from the Diva Plavalaguna. Then Leeloo comes to his home and he hides the general and military in his house knowing they are after her and then later Dallas and the other heroes go to Fhloston Paradise and are pursued by the villains. Dallas finds the stones in the Diva and Leeloo takes out a group of bad guys and escapes Zorg, who sets in motion a bomb in the place, which destroys the ship and Zorg. Dallas and the other heroes escape and head to the weapons chamber in the Egyptian Temple, where they activate the stones and stop and kill The Ultimate Evil, the main villain.
