Earl: (to family) Hey! Let's not get panicky. Our tactical supervisor will know exactly how to bring back the plants.
(Earl and Roy go to see Mr. Richfield)
Mr. Richfield: How the heck should I know? I'm a captain of industry, not a gardener!
Roy: Well golly Mr. Richfield, we really ought to do somethin'. I mean folks get a little antsy when they suspect they may never eat again.
Mr. Richfield: Oh okay, hold on, gimme a minute...we're talking about plants here, right?
Mr. Richfield: Well, what makes plants grow?
Roy: Talking to them in loving tones?
Mr. Richfield: Rain! We gotta make it rain! That's all there is to it! But how...?
Earl: ...oh! Tell everybody to wash their car! That always makes it rain!
Roy: Or, everybody could take a bath! ...no wait, that makes the phone ring.
