A phone lineman, Phil, calls down to his colleague, Hank, for more line. Hank gets in his cherry picker and hoists himself upward. On his ascent, he notes an interesting scene through an open window, where several gentlemen are standing around watching a man in an enclosed tube emitting a red glow. As he glows, his skeleton becomes visible. One of the men inside sees that he is watching and goes to a phone. Realizing he's been spotted, Hank begins to descend. Phil yells at him to ask what's the matter and tell him he needs the line.
Hank runs to his truck, but is detained by one of the guards, who's pressing something to his neck. As Phil approaches, the guard says he thinks he's had a heart attack.
Phil is so unnerved that he forgets his coworker's name and begins calling him Phil, asking if he's okay. Hank haltingly tells of seeing a man in a tube glowing as if he were on fire. The guard tries to interrupt him, but the coworker pushes him away and drives off with him in the truck. The man who had been on the phone comes out and signals to the guard. The truck breaks through the barrier, as the guards dive out of the way.
