George and Lynne are in their living room when the lights go out. Lynne complains that this is the second power cut this week. She goes on to complain that the heating has gone off and it is freezing. George grabs a torch and tells her to look on the bright side as they'll just have to turn in early again.
George and Lynne have watched so much television that the power cut has had no emotional effect on them. They continue to stare at the blank screen as Lynne monotonically informs George of the lack of electricity. If it wasn't for the heating going off and snapping Lynne out of her stupor, she would have stayed there all night.
This power cut is isolated to their house only as the light from the streetlamps still lights their faces. If we look at George's face in the first frame, there is a knowing smile. He has organised this power cut with a deft efficiency. However he has not done it to have his way with Lynne. No, he has blown the fusebox in the garage purely to play with his knock-off lightsaber that he picked up at the market last week. Just call him George Skywalker.
