The toys of Andy and their reluctant companion, Lotso, end up in the treadmill of a landfill in “Toy Story 3”. Though they narrowly escape the belt’s garbage disposals, an even worse fate awaits them in the form of an incinerator. Woody and Buzz help Lotso reach the emergency stop button on the treadmill, but the deceitful bear betrays them, despite being saved from the chippers by the two toys earlier.

As the rescued toys take their marks, Buzz and Jessie realize that they are still holding hands. None of them seem to really care.
