Plucky strings of building wacky tension play as Jaye and Eric quietly turn on the lights in the bar, looking for the source of the sound. The camera pans across the room, past a barrel. Wait! The camera sees something! The camera's trying to tell us something! It pans back quickly to the barrel again as we hear a sound. Jaye tells Eric that it's over there in the barrel. Jaye hands Eric an empty wine bottle for protection. Eric heads over, grabbing a chair in case there's a lion in the barrel. Jaye carries a coffee pot. The digeridoo of insanity starts up as Eric peers inside the top of the barrel. He leaps back, shocked. Jaye gasps. "Dun-dun-dun!" goes the overdramatic background music. "Dun-dun-dun!" Jaye whispers something here that I've listened to six times now and I can't figure out what it is. Sounds like, "What might?" Eric takes her hand and leads her to the barrel. Jaye and Eric peer over the top. Inside is a woman sitting cross-legged, reading a book. She's got a lamp in there, so somehow the barrel has electricity. She's got a pillow, some books, and I think can actually see the electrical socket just over her shoulder. The woman sees Jaye and Eric, freaks out, and in doing so overturns the barrel. Jaye and Eric fall to the floor, the woman falls out of the barrel, and the barrel rolls about two feet before crashing into the bar, making a dishes-smashing sound. The woman runs out the front door. Camera pushes in on Eric and Jaye as they watch, mouths agape. Jaye says the stupid line "Big, big rat." There's a sound of a closing door for no reason, and then the music pulls it to a dramatic blackout.
