A bride and her electric guitar-playing groom sail along in a house moving like a train; a distraught man complains of his financial woes while his wife tries to make love to him; a drunken woman shouts "No one understands me" to a bar full of silent patrons; a man waiting in line to buy a train ticket changes queues repeatedly, to no advantage.
