Doc Thompson has diligently prepared contingency plans for a range of emergencies, but he jokingly worries his wife's indecision will doom them both should the worst ever come to pass. He imagines a number of dangerous situations and describes how his better half might react.
"She's not going to listen, and then I'm going to get killed defending her," Doc predicts. "That's what's going to happen."
He follows up with an even more absurd prediction: "No, it's going to be the dog. We will have the dog out sometime, and she's going to make me go back for the dog. I'll get shot; the dog will live. ... I will die pissed off."
