Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 After having breakfast with Linda, Maria strolls through the arbor, where Crystal and Mario have set up a picnic for some visiting Martians. When Maria asks how they know this, Crystal counters, "How do you know they're not?" They set out a welcome sign written in an alien language, some food, and juice.
