It is Mark's turn to speak. He is silent. Theresa and Mae look at him with anticipation. He is unable to choose. He says nothing.

Theresa approaches Mark. She is angry at his indecision. She slaps him. The force of the blow is too great. Mark's head comes completely off. Theresa's arm is also severed. She stares in disbelief at Mark's missing head, then at her missing arm. She is in shock. Too late she has discovered the perils of office romance.

Mae is unable to bear the scene she has just witnessed. She bends over double in pain. Unfortunately her vegetarian diet has caused her body to become too stiff. She breaks in two at the waist. Soon Mae and Theresa and Mark are reduced to crumbs. This must surely be a metaphor for something.
