Black Belt and White Mage get lost somehow.

Cast Appearing[]



White Mage How did you get us lost?!
Black Belt We're not lost. We're, uh... exploring.
White Mage "Exploring"?
Black Belt Er yeah. Y'know, for treasures and stuff.
White Mage I see. And it doesn't bother you at all that we're doing this instead of fulfilling our destiny?
Black Belt Not really. I figure the world owes us--or or it will owe us when we triumph as per our destiny. So what's wrong with taking some now?
White Mage How does the world owe us for doing the right thing?
Time passes...
Black Belt I think I saw a treasure chest around here somewhere.
Black Belt walks out of frame to the right.
White Mage Okay. We'll talk about the ethical ramifications of using destiny for profit later.
Right now, I'm more worried about our decoys. They could be in danger.
Black Belt (out of frame) If you're so hung up on this whole 'destiny' thing, then you shouldn't be worrying.
White Mage How do you figure that?
Black Belt (out of frame) Well, if you really believe that we're all just playing out pre-destined roles to save the world, then technically we've already won.
It's just a matter of catching up with fate.
Black Belt appears to the left of White Mage.
Black Belt Er... how did I get back here?
White Mage I knew it! We are lost! Grah!
Black Belt Speaking from a purely philosophical perspective, we're not lost so much as spatially displaced.
White Mage You failed philosophy, didn't you.
Black Belt Big time.
