Three couples—Emily and Kevin, Hugh and Beth, Amir and Laurie—attend a dinner party at the house of their friends Mike and Lee. On the way to the party, Em's phone loses reception and the screen spontaneously shatters. She blames this on a passing comet which she had heard about on the news. She tells the other dinner guests how a previous comet a century earlier had caused people to experience strange phenomena. Her idea is ridiculed until the other guests discover that none of their phones have power and that Hugh's phone has also shattered. Hugh wants to contact his brother, a physicist who had warned him about possible odd effects from the comet. Just then, the house loses power. The group lights candles and opens a package of blue glow sticks to provide light. Going outside they see that the whole neighborhood has lost power except for a house a few blocks away. Hugh and Amir decide to walk to that house to see if they have a working telephone. While they are gone, Mike manages to turn on his house's generator, restoring power. Hugh and Amir return, with Hugh bleeding slightly from the forehead and Amir carrying a box which they had found at the other house. Hugh explains that he became startled when he looked inside the other house and saw a dinner table set exactly like theirs. Opening the box they discover a ping pong paddle and photos of all of them, with random numbers written on the back. Amir notes that the photo of him was taken that night, inside the house, and Em realizes that the numbers are written in her handwriting.

A straight bass player in an "all gay band" called The Jerk-Offs, Nick O'Leary (Michael Cera) is a teenager from Hoboken, New Jersey. Nick is still heartbroken after his girlfriend, Tris (Alexis Dziena), broke up with him three weeks, two days, and 23 hours ago, and continues to make for her "breakup" mix CDs. Thom (Aaron Yoo) and Dev (Rafi Gavron), his gay bandmates who both hate Tris, convince Nick to perform at a club because his favorite band— the legendary, publicity-shy indie band Where's Fluffy? —is performing somewhere in New York City that night. Norah Silverberg (Kat Dennings) attends the same high school as Tris, Convent of the Sacred Heart, and though Norah and Tris dislike each other, they have a mutual friend named Caroline (Ari Graynor). Norah has not met Nick, but shares his taste in music based on recovering his mix CDs after Tris discards them in the trash. That night, the three girls end up at Arlene's Grocery on Manhattan's Lower East Side, where The Jerk-Offs are playing. Norah asks Nick to pretend to be her boyfriend to show up Tris. Norah kisses him, unaware that he is the ex-boyfriend of Tris. Caroline gets drunk and Norah wants to take her home, but Nick's bandmates (who see Norah as a potential new girlfriend for him) offer to take Caroline home so Norah and Nick can spend time together trying to find the show.
