- Sandra: The gate is locked.
- Larisa: OH NO!
- Larisa: Now we have to wangle the keys off the old foreman of the factory, for which we’ll need the help of his housekeeper, who’ll only help us if Sandra beats her in a drinking contest, which she’ll only be able to do after drinking a magic potion made of oatmeal gruel, benzoin resin and bombastium, though the precise composition of the ingredients has to strictly follow the secret formula which a voodoo priest buried in 1926 in the garden of the White House – the one in Moscow, by the way – by the command of the barber of Calvin Coolidge inside a chest richly ornamented with runes which can only be opened by someone who’s able to decipher the clues for the solution of the complex locking mechanism encoded in the priest’s diary, which is, on top of it all, in the possession of his only remaining descendant in Jamaica, who’ll only be able to give it to us if we save him just in time before he gets sacrificed to Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent deity of the Aztecs, by a cult of radical Bob Marley fans who strive for the resurrection of their idol in a dark ritual to achieve world domination under his undead leadership.
