Episode 4

1 Ken, where are you? Ken? Ken? Okay.
30,000 emails just magically disappear.
I mean, how do you explain that? Hey, Anthony, do you ever think your obsession with conspiracies is a substitute for real human connection? No, not really.
What about the deep state? Is all of that lies? Yes.
Huh? What? So the government doesn't do anything bad? No, they do dumb shit all the time.
Like evil shit.
You mean like Pizzagate? No, I mean like the Tuskegee syphilis experiment, where they deliberately gave 600 infected Black men placebos so they could study the effects of the untreated disease, kind of evil shit.
I agree.
I think there is conspiracy out there, but they get you hooked on the fake ones to distract from the real ones.
So I'm not just some smelly old guy.
No, you are quite smelly.
I'm concerned that you don't really wash yourself, like, you know, with soap.
Soap? What? No one needs soap.
That's all propaganda from big soap.
Everyone needs soap.
We're gonna have to put a pin in that, okay? 'Cause we are so close to exposing these jackoffs.
Can't you smell it? I literally haven't inhaled in three hours.
All right.
Come on.
Come on, kid, where are ya? Where are ya? Oh! Oh my God! I smell something for sure.
It wasn't me, kid.
Roll down the window.
What? I told you he was following me! "You'll never expose the" In 1984, four schoolboys meet a young girl called Eleven and discover a place called the Upside Down.
You see, you've got to pay attention, haven't you? That's Stranger Things.
And this show's called The Pentaverate, about a secret society who are nice.
Anyway, episode four.
Well, you've done three of the buggers.
Trust me, you'd be a right dick to bail on it now.
Musk is in hyperloop, eastbound to Dubrovnik Central.
Speed, Mach 3.
Hold onto your lunch! Whoo! You enjoy that, kid? Come on, let's go get that key! Hoo-ah! This way, kid.
All right, Ken, I'm gonna need you to focus.
We gotta get in there and get that key.
There's Dubrovnik Castle.
That's where the Parce Clavem is.
May the ogre accept your net of regrets.
Oh, right, because of the Festival of the Ogre of Dubrovnik.
Every year, the townspeople offer their nets of regret to the Ogre of Dubrovnik for absolution.
Oh, that's interesting.
Shit, it's Sasquatch! We gotta lose him, Ken.
- Move out of the way.
- Get out of the way! We gotta go.
Sorry! You go find the fortune-teller's shop, and I'll try and lead him down this alley.
I can't run too good on account I got necrosis of the left testis.
From a western? No, it's from when I was stunt coordinator on The Golden Girls.
Fuck Estelle Getty! - Okay.
- One important thing.
Don't touch the key.
- Don't touch the key? - Don't touch the key! Now go! Don't touch the key.
Don't touch the key.
Hoo-ah! Hoo-ah! Oh shit, there it goes.
Excuse me, sorry.
Excuse me.
Sorry, ma'am.
Sorry, excuse me.
Oh! Excuse me.
There is the Ogre of Dubrovnik! Ogre! Ogre! - Please accept my net of regrets.

The Maester is my braester.
Well, I have some very bad news, I'm afraid.

Is this about the copier? Did Katie from HR send you? What? Oh, nothing, nothing.

Ah, well, it isn't here.
You've wasted your time.
Good day! Hello? Saester? I happen to know for a fact that the key is here.

You'll never hit this nun.
The mirror gives deception.
