Primary Canon History
The Wife seems to be a complaining type and was arguing with her husband all the time. They both were unaware that they were test subjects for studies on human emotions and whether it could affect the physical environment. They thought they were there for marriage counseling. After waiting two and a half hours and enduring gradually increasing temperatures, they were stunned when the Assistant told them the wait was going to be a half hour longer.
