Transcript

Panel 1

Beaver is holding up his finger in that 'matter-of-factly' fashon he has. There is a toaster on the table infront of him, and Steve is opposite Beaver at the table.
Beaver: "You know, Steve, any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
Beaver: "For instance: The Toaster."
Beaver INSERTs a slice of bread into the toaster.
Steve: "Wait, you mean toasters aren't magic?"

Panel 2

Steve pulls out a red device with an apparently blue screen on it. On the top, in the red, it says "TOASTERSCOPE."
Steve: "There's only one way to resolve this: with my latest invention..."
Steve: "THE TOASTERSCOPE!"
Beaver holds his finger to his lip in a curiousity fashon he also uses.
Beaver: "Toasterscope?"
Steve: "Yeah, you know, for seeing through toasters."

Panel 3

The Toasterscope has been placed infront of the toaster. It now shows a TM in superscript at the end of the title, showing that 'Toasterscope' is the mark of a certain company.
At the bottom right side of the Toasterscope is a switch, turned upwards. Beside it shows that up is 'on' and down is 'off'. The bread is visible inside the toaster, along with a Toaster Critter.
Beaver: "Ooh look - there's a little guy in there!"
Steve, with suprise lines emitting from his head: "And he's stealing our bread! We have to stop him!"

Panel 4

Steve has grabbed a fork and is attempting to STAB the Toaster Critter, who now has alert lines emitting from his head.
Steve: "Don't worry, I'll soon have him out of there..."
Beaver does another of his finger fashons, the 'careful...' one this time.
Beaver: "Now Steve remember the rhyme: 'Toasters and cutlery, never mix, or you could end up in a fix...'"
Steve: "Oh that's just a silly superstition..."

Panel 5

Beaver and Steve are electrocuted with a FUTZ, and a purple backround appears.

Panel 6

Beaver: "Ah, lady electrocution, how I've missed your sweet embrace..."
Beaver and Steve are outside now, on a circle at the end/start of a dirt trail surrounded by grass. Everything appears to be made of toasters, including a dog, a bush, buildings, clouds, and the sun. There are toasters on the trees like fruit. The grass, trail, sky, and trees themselves are 'normal' though.
Steve: "You know Beaver, I don't think we're in the kitchen anymore."

Fun Facts

  • The little guy in the toaster is wearing medieval-like armour.
  • The Toaster Scope is a trademark, meaning Steve probably stole it, as well.
  • Surprisingly, it seems Beaver is recovering from an addiction to electrocution

References

  • The line "You know Beaver, I don't think we're in the kitchen anymore" is a reference to the line "Toto, I’ve got a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore" from The Wizard of Oz.
  • The whole story arc seems to be a reference to The Wizard of Oz, as we can clearly see a yellow brick road that fades in the distance.
