George and Martha have just returned from a faculty party.

It’s late, but at Martha’s insistence a young couple, their neighbors, have come over for a card game. George has been digging and thumping all day and is tired and deeply ashamed. Martha taunts him ruthlessly.  George brandishes a carrot, laughs apologetically, then eats the carrot, suddenly noticing that Martha’s naked, that she's always been naked.  The neighbors excuse themselves, go outside, and do their business in the flower bed.
