Don McElroy's mother very recently passed away. The representative of the funeral home offers him a device--a box with a button--that will let him have a final conversation with his mother. Given Don's habit of placing blame, should he press that button?


DON: Did you just say 'harken'? If I may ask, where are you from?

JASON: I said you need to let her go! Now!
JACOB: Or what? Believe me, she don't need the Lone Ranger. Doin' fine on her own!

NICOLE: If we're gonna shoot him, I want to do it! Seriously, I want to shoot him!


Diane mentions that she heard about "the box with a button" on the radio. A radio promo for a news story on such a device is heard in "Remembering the Martians," another Marvellous Boxes play produced by Decoder Ring Theatre.
