Out Of The Flying Pan

Synopsis:
amid fanfares and popping flash bulbs, two diplomats (a and B) meet to engage in a bout of international bargaining. Their rapid-fire dialogue, while composed largely of outlandish doubletalk and windy pronouncements, has chilly overtones of the "real thing," as do their inevitable disagreement and estrangement. angrily they tear apart the treaty they have signed, and turn their backs on one another. Sirens wail, guns rattle, and then a cosmic-sized explosion-followed by a sudden, heavy silence. In the stillness B stalks off the stage, but then a bird twitters, gentle music plays, and a begins to move to its rhythm, retrieving the pieces of the torn treaty. another moment passes, the sound of an approaching airplane, and then B reappears, dispatch case at the ready. They shake hands, patter again through the trite preliminaries, and then launch into still another round of pretentious gibberish, while mankind holds its collective breath at the outcome.

Smell Of Burning, The

Synopsis:
a married couple sit at the breakfast table, clucking over bits of gossip in the newspaper and bickering about whether the eggs are properly done. In the distance, explosions are heard, and then a rather mysterious gentleman appears, announcing that he is from the City Surveyor's office and concerned with supervising "certain alterations in the structure of the status quo." as he darts in and out busily tending to his duties, the couple remain absorbed in domestic trivialities-as the sounds of violence come ever nearer and the actions of the visitor change from mysterious to sinister. But even as their doom approaches the couple cannot seem to grasp the reality of what lurks outside their cozy flat, cannot comprehend the anarchy which will engulf them. "Strange," muses the old gentleman (who is only doing his job) "that you never notice what is happening."

Then

Synopsis:
Sitting alone amid a wasteland of nuclear destruction, his head covered by a brown paper bag, Phythick laments the loss of all that was, and could have been. Then a girl walks by, her head also covered by a paper bag. They talk: he revealing that he was a science teacher; she that she was "Miss Europe." They fall in love, but cannot kiss, cannot remove their paper bags for fear of radiation. The bags are a crinkling barrier between them-and perhaps must always be so. Yet can there be hope? Do they dare? a cloud comes over the moon as Phythick slowly raises his hand towards the bag covering his face.

Frederick Smith, on impulse visits the house of an old employee who, he discovers, has had a stroke and is nursed by his embittered daughter-in-law. The house seems to be haunted by unexplained secrets and sounds and the visitor uncovers a family tragedy. The blind, dumb and paralyzed stroke victim seems to ask Ruth for forgiveness for his treatment of her, but dies before she can tell him that she does, in fact, forgive him. Even after his death, though, he seems to acknowledge her change of heart.

Megan blames Sally for causing the crash and treats her daughter cruelly. In spite of this, Sally realizes that she must stay and take care of her mother. Still wanting to marry her, Clive suggests that he move in with Sally and Megan.
