Grandma Goldy, a medium, is conducting a séance for a couple. The wife, Cynthia, is eager to make contact with her Uncle Danny on the other side, while her husband is initially skeptical. Goldy has them place their hands on the planchette of an Ouija board and it begins to move. The spirit knocks twice and Goldy confirms that Danny is happy and has his dog Sadie with him. Convinced, the husband wants Goldy to ask the spirit about some missing papers. The lights flicker and the fire in the fireplace surges up, and Goldy is just as surprised as the couple.
