He walks over and starts to talk to her. She tells him that she is waiting for an older wealthy man and asks him to leave but he refuses and gets in the car. She says 'Very well' and careens off. He becomes frightened and tells her to slow down and she does not. When he glances over at her, he screams, for he sees a skeleton that tells him he has stolen a blind date with Death as the car heads straight for the side of a mountain.; A publisher has communication devices installed in every cubicle so he can fire his employees when they badmouth him. One day, he hears a voice that threatens him with eternal torments in Hell. He demands to know who is speaking and a grinning skull emanates from the device to claim him.; A man stumbles over a card game where four strange characters are playing for body parts.; A deadbeat wants to see a movie called 'The Man from Mars' but since he doesn't bother to get a job, he's broke and has no money. When he sees a rocket ship with a sign outside that reads "Be the First to see Mars" he thinks it's a promotion for the picture and enters, hoping to get to see the movie for free. Suddenly, the rocket blasts off and he passes out from the acceleration. When he revives, he finds himself a captive in a Martian zoo.
