K'Warra: Why thank you, whoever you may be. I am in your debt.
*Chere tenses up again and looks balefully at K'Warra out of the corner of her eye*
Guy: Very well.
*He walks towards the cages, producing a strange-looking device and, using at a key, unlocks each of the cages in turn. A faint shimmer dissipates around a section of the cage doors, which retract. The captives climb out*
Chere: Er,...how are we going to get home? Where are we, anyway?
K'Warra: *stretching out his various limbs* So. The universe is ending? I take it you weren't just talking about standard entropy there.
