Storyline

"Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" is a song written and performed by the British new wave music duo Eurythmics.

The scene then returns to the boardroom, with Lennox and Stewart lying down on the table, and a cow walking around them. Stewart is shown again typing on the computer, with the cow chewing something right next to him. The scene cuts to the duo in a field, with a herd of cows, and Stewart still typing.
