SCENE 2 Stephanie, Julia, and John-John join Luis, Maria, and Bob at Sam's party where he introduces them to his appliance friends. They present Sam with a cake they've baked, but Sam has something more appropriate for a wiring day: stainless steel cake with aluminum icing. He asks everyone to turn around and close their eyes while he blows out the candles, which is done with a small explosion at the base of the cake. Everyone intends to sing him "Happy Birthday to You", but Sam introduces his friends who sing "Happy Wiring Day to You" in mechanical voices. The humans leave before Pin the Tail on the Toaster starts; Bob says he's been to some crazy parties before... and this is certainly one of them.
