The Martian starts at the end of the table on the right side, with Chief Wiggum two seats to the left of him. In later shots, the Martian, then Wiggum are both switched to the same position, midway up the left side. Then, when the song ends, Wiggum has disappeared, and the Martian remains in this new position.
