Though it had nothing to do with skyrocketing prices, Russel blamed the oil industry for his panic attack.

Is the fact that most food is grown with petroleum-based fertilizers relevant to this panic attack?

mistaking one stock for another?

Living in an area where a war could break out? Animal rights activists concerned about arctic drilling?

Ok, so is Russel's wife pregnant? Tested positive for pregnancy? False positive?

Was the panic attack because he thought his wife was pregnant?

Was his girlfriend REALLY pregnant, or was he mistaken in thinking so? If she is pregnant, is the oil industry to blame somehow for the pregnancy? Was the pregnancy unintended? Is Russel really the father of the child?

Would his panic attack have anything to do with him thinking she was pregnant? How life would change for both of them? Maybe get married?

Did the girlfriend have a positive chemical test strip that he mistakenly thought was a positive pregnancy test?

A gas leak, or otherwise suspected problem, requiring all in the area is gf was to be tested for their safety, and that including a pregnancy test. And his gf's pregnancy test was inaccurate which caused his panic attack?

Is the environmental impact of the oil industry relevant?
If not, the actual produce?

Did the oil industry get its act together, giving his gf nothing to protest about, leading to him believing she was having pregnancy related mood swings?

attending protests? sending petitions to local or national government? performing work to clean up the environment herself? boycotting certain consumer products?

Did his girlfriend also believe she was pregnant?
Was the misconception based on...
-Nausea/vomiting?
-Mood swings?
-Weight gain?
-Missed/late period?
-Another physical symptom associated with pregnancy?
-Something she (or someone else) said (possibly related to the oil industry?) that he misheard or misunderstood?
-A deliberate lie on her part?
-A deliberate lie on someone else's part?

Is anyone else involved besides Russel, his girlfriend, and the oil industry as a whole?

Oookay, so he does (mistakenly) believe she's pregnant, right? And he is basing this on some kind of evidence? Something in her behavior? You already said it wasn't based on a pregnancy test or anything he believed to be a pregnancy test, and now you've ruled out physical symptoms and verbal suggestions. Did she maybe start wanting to settle down or "nest?" Did he have unprotected sex with her and/or discover that some manner of birth control had failed and start flipping out just in case she got pregnant? I'm running out of reasons people mistakenly believe someone is pregnant, here. Is this a useful thing to be trying to find out?

You already said it wasn't based on a pregnancy test or anything he believed to be a pregnancy test, and now you've ruled out physical symptoms and verbal suggestions. Yep. Did she maybe start wanting to settle down or "nest?" Ha, your wording is actually kind of ironic. No, but explore why he might think she's doing this. Did he have unprotected sex with her and/or discover that some manner of birth control had failed and start flipping out just in case she got pregnant? No. I'm running out of reasons people mistakenly believe someone is pregnant, here. Is this a useful thing to be trying to find out? Yes indeed. Think of more stereotypical 'signs' men use to discover women are pregnant, like on tv.

I want this one solved, if you didn't notice.

Ahhh, thought of one more. Did she refuse to do something that might harm a fetus, such as drinking, smoking, skiing or inhaling oil fumes? Or else start doing something that might be interpreted as benefiting a fetus, such as eating for two?

Did she set up a room in a way that looked like a baby's room? Learn a bunch of lullabies? Read baby books? Start saving money for what he thought was a college fund? Make baby clothes/blankets? Talk about a "shower"?

Something to do with feeding?
Changing?
Getting a baby to sleep?
Colic?
Some more distant need of a child or the adult it would become?
Did she, in fact, seem to be preparing to fulfill some need that a baby would have? Something she would, as a future mom, need to do?

Did she set up a room in a way that looked like a baby's room? Learn a bunch of lullabies? Read baby books? Start saving money for what he thought was a college fund? Make baby clothes/blankets? This! Ish! Talk about a "shower"?

Something to do with feeding?
Changing?
Getting a baby to sleep?
Colic?
Some more distant need of a child or the adult it would become? No to all.
Did she, in fact, seem to be preparing to fulfill some need that a baby would have? She seemed to be making clothing, yes. Something she would, as a future mom, need to do? See above.

She seemed to be making clothing that was small in size? Was she knitting? Was this clothing intended for use by non-humans? By any chance, was it intended for penguins?

**************SPOILER
Russel returns home and finds that his new girlfriend, who has just moved in and hasn't even met the parents yet, is knitting tiny sweaters. He assumes that they are for a child in the making, starts thinking about finances and wedding rings, and goes ahead and panics.

His girl eventually finds him in a corner in the fetal position, and explains she was simply doing volunteer work for one of the many groups who knits clothing for penguins (here's one: http://www.seattlepi.com/local/pengww.shtml ). After oil spills, the poor little birds try to preen themselves and end up swallowing poisons. The sweaters keep them warm and stop them from preening until they can be cleaned.
