When a spacecraft lands and a creature emerges, two scientists are at odds with each other on what to do with the being. One thinks it is a threat and should be destroyed but the other stops his attack and helps the creature back to his ship where the two of them blast off. The irony is provided by the fact that the creature is, indeed, hostile.

Synopsis:
A man has dreams about killing his wife but he gets arrested and executed the same way in the dreams and so loses his nerve. He thinks that he'll take her out on the lake and drown her as there is no capital punishment method analogous to that, but she turns the tables on him, and informs him as he drowns that he talks in his sleep.
