While father and son are rigging up their freshly overhauled sailing boat, Anna prepares supper. Suddenly, Georgie appears in the hallway and tells Anna that there is a stranger at the front door. Peter, a young and evidently well-bred guest of their neighbors, is standing at the door asking Anna for a few eggs. Anna willingly complies with the request. However, Peter's initially polite attitude soon grows inexplicably belligerent and contemptuous. He is later joined by Paul, a pert and insolent young man, who begins to harshly patronize Anna. Taken aback by their audacity, Anna demands them both to leave at once, but they do not - nor do they have any intention to. When Georg returns home, a violent altercation erupts which results in the family becoming the unwilling participants for Paul and Peter's ''funny games''.
