When they get to their destination, they cook dinner and drink a few beers before realising they forgot one of their two one-person tents back home. They decide to play rock/paper/scissors to determine who will sleep in the tent and who will sleep outside. James wins, so they both slip into their sleeping bags and go to sleep, with James in the tent.

George accepts and goes out into the forest with Michael’s wife to fetch firewood.

Michael begins helping George’s wife put up the tents and decides to obtain some water for the campsite. A swarm of mosquitos passes through while George’s wife is setting up the tents, and because she is dressed for the outdoors, they attack her on the only exposed flesh they can find on her neck, leaving large red markings.

A short while later, Michael returns to the camp as quickly as he can, wearing no shirt, and trips on a tree root, landing directly on top of George’s wife. When George and Michael’s wife return to the campsite, they notice “hickeys” on George’s wife and Michael panting and puffing with scratches on his back.

George is enraged and demands that the two explain themselves. George’s wife says, “No, you don’t get it. I was putting up the tents when these mosquitos stung me all over my neck.”

Michael finally takes a breather and explains, “A bear charged me while I was down by the river getting water. As I turned to flee, it swiped at me, pulling my shirt off and scratching my back. I was running back so fast that I tripped and fell on top of your wife.”

George isn’t buying it and accuses both of them of playing around when Michael abruptly exclaims, “Why are you yelling at me in the first place? I should be screaming at you for cheating on my wife.”

“Where the hell did you get that idea?” replies George, surprised.

“Because you’ve been gone for an hour and don’t have any goddamn firewood!” Michael responds.
