Jody Sturka calls up to William Sturka and tells him Jerry stopped by. Jerry and Sturka walk down to the garage and Jerry tells him that they need to change their plans. He says that the guard he had bribed gets off work at 11 and they will have to adjust when they leave. During a card game, Eve Sturka, Jody and Ann go to the kitchen to get lemonade and cake and Jerry shows Sturka a simple map he made of the planet he intends to fly them to. Jerry tells them there are people on the planet which are similar to them. The doorbell rings and Carling enters the house. Carling starts asking suspicious questions and notices Eve seems nervous. Carling leaves and Sturka reveals the plan to Jody. The phone rings and Sturka answers it and tells the others that his department called him to work. They drive to the Ministry of Science and park at the gate. They receive a signal from who they think is the guard Jerry bribed, but turns out to be Carling. Carling walks up with a drawn gun and orders everyone out of the car. Jody hits him and Sturka and Jerry manage to subdue him. They all run to the spaceship and take off. As they are heading to the new planet, Jerry reveals to Sturka that the planet's name is Earth.
