It is the story of a married couple who get into an argument while playing Scrabble. While they are arguing, their cat chews through the power cable for their television, so that they don't notice that a nuclear war has begun.
The husband complains about his wife's habit of shaking her eyes, while she points out he has the bad habit of sawing the furniture from watching the TV show "Sawing for Teens" (the show is interrupted so that the warning can be given). They barely notice that there is panic in the streets.
In the end, they reconcile. Just as they start to open the door, they are vaporized by a nuclear bomb and instantly arrive in heaven. Still unaware of what has happened, they comment on what a beautiful day it is and return to finish their Scrabble game.
