Close-up of the poster on the wall of a dock in the twilight. It says:-

I M A G I N A T I O N
It's the only way you'll escape the hell hole that is your life.

The next frame shows the "Heroes" suspended upside-down be a rope over a "Vat O' Acid". The "Villain" Garland and "Also Villain" Sara are stood to the left and to the right of the vat respectively.

White Mage I don't get it. How could you take this long and still not have defeated Garland?
Black Mage I don't know. It seems like such a simple task. You'd think we'd be past this by now.
Thief If only I could free myself.
Red Mage And then perform some daring act to free the rest of us?
Thief Um... sure, I guess. For a price. Of course.
Red Mage In retrospect, I really should have seen that coming. But that's exactly why...
Red Mage I have formulated yet another Brilliant plan!
Black Mage Oh good. Because that first 'brilliant plan' of yours worked out so well that it got us here in the first place.
Red Mage No, no, no. This one's much better. It depends entirely on Fighter.
Pause.
Black Mage I would jump into the acid right the hell now just to save time, but then I wouldn't be able to hear your own horrible acidy screams of death.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The title of this episode is taken from the famous catchphrase "Well, that's another fine mess you got me into", often spoken by Oliver Hardy.
