After dinner, all the trash from the event is piled up and ready to be taken out, so brother D heads out to put the trash in brother M's truck, as planned. He finds the truck, gets all the trash in nicely piled in the bed of the truck, and he straps the tarp in, so the trash doesn't fly out.

Brother D: My tarp!!!
