Before Mr. Frank could blow out the candle, there was a loud noise coming from down stairs. They all freeze in horror, and Peter accidently knocks over a lamp causing even more noise. Mr. and Mrs. Van Daan start freaking out. Anne faints on the floor, and Mrs. Frank tries to help her out. Mr. Frank listens to see what's going on down there.
Mr. Frank decides to investigate the scene, but Anne and Margot tell him to stop, that he shouldn't go down there. Peter volunteered to go down there, but Mr. Van Daan said, "Haven't you done enough?" Anne begs Mr. Van Daan to get her father, while Mrs. Frank starts praying.
Mr. Frank returns, and said it was only a thief. He only stole the cash, and a radio. He said that the danger is gone, everything is safe. Mr. Dussel says that they're going to get caught, and Anne says that they should move. Mr. Van Daan says where would they go? But Mr. Frank there are alive, and they have courage. So they sing, and the end of the scene.
