The Great Universal Cuckoo Clock of Time (17/29)
On board the HMS Fifth Little Bit of the Spare Key of Time, our heroes are struggling through a cargo of thousands of electric fans; searching desperately for the one particular fan which is the sixth little bit of the aforementioned key. Is that clear? Good.
Sound of them rummaging through the fans
Dr, how do we tell which is the right fan?
You look at the label on the bottom, Dana.
But you've got your trousers on.
(The Dr hits Dana)
Now let's see; what does the label on this fan say.
(The Dr starts reading the labels on the bottom of the
fans he picks up)
This fan is not the sixth little bit of the spare key of
time. Oh. This is not it either. Oh. This could be it but it's not. Oh. Bad
luck, this is not the one.
Lots and lots of time later during the same episode.
No, try again dummy. You picked me up two hours ago. Wrong
again. Yes, this is the one. Not this one, it's the one you just threw away
drongo... What! Oh blast. Where did I put it?
And so, lots and lots of more time later.
Not this one. Stop picking me up. Sorry. Damn dunnies, where
is that blasted fan? The next one you pick up will be the one. Ah ha, yes this
is the one. What kept you? I found it. This fan is little bit number six. We've
only got to get one more bit to find and the universe will be saved.
Dana & STAINES
Right, let's get back to the TURDIS. Where's Dennis?
He's over there Dr, listening to his tranny.
Dennis, do you mean to say, you were sitting here while we
were desperately trying to save the universe.
O, so a Bob Dylan special is more important, eh?
(singing to Bob Dylan's Blowin' in the Wind)
Meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow
Meow meow meow meow meow meow meow
And stop that caterwauling.
It's Bob Dylan's Blowin' in the Wind, Dr. Dennis is a big fan
Fan? Blowin' in the Wind? Bob Dylan? Yes the seventh little
bit must be Bob Dylan.
How many times can a radio audience shake its head and
pretend it doesn't understand. The answer my friend is blowing in the wind of
the next episode of Dr Poo-oo!
