Travelling to the mainland, Zeke and Man-Thing end up at a diner where Zeke tries to get the people inside to spare a nickel so that he can call for help. When they start to rough up Zeke for being a yokel swampie, the Man-Thing enters and fights off the attackers. Frightened, the owner gives Zeke the nickle he requires to make a phone call.

The Man-Thing destroys the creature, however the resulting explosion knocks the muck-monster out. When Zeke goes to check on his wife, they are attacked by a demon who has come to take her soul away. However, Dawg gives it's life so that it's masters may live. With Dawg's sacrifice the demon departs, and Maybelle realizes how important Dawg was to Zeke.
