Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd make it to the nuclear missle. They put in the codes, and then realize that they were sent to start World War III.

In the end, Aykroyd, Chase, Aykroyd's love interest and the Russian missle crew are shown ending the Cold War by playing a game of Risk in DC.

Keyes: By your actions, sir, you are risking the future of the human race.
