Graham and Morgan make a bet that Graham can go for twenty-four hours without talking. After Graham fails to make Paul understand what's going on with a series of charades, he breaks the bet out of sheer frustration, then resolves to start over. Paul decides to see how many times he can get Graham to talk - and he does get Graham talking through a series of clever tricks. The frustration eats at Graham's sanity until he loses all control, proclaims he'll never stop talking, and runs gibbering into the night. Morgan congratulates Paul on his manipulation skills and concludes the private bet they'd made between them.
