Brian makes breakfast; Jackson sleeps in. Ponder receives a bowl of oatmeal with dates and raisins and pecans and honey and yogurt in in it.

Permalink

While he's eating it, the air starts shimmering with a color Brian has never seen before. It's somewhere between purple and green.

Permalink

Two men and an orangatung appear.

The taller of the men says, "Ah, there you are. Not dead after all."

Permalink

"- that's an orangutang," observes Brian, bewildered.

Permalink

"Oook," the Librarian says, sounding pleased.

Permalink

"That's, er, the Librarian. He used to be a wizard."

Permalink

"...but he's an orangutang. There's an orangutang in my kitchen," says Brian, with the air of one who feels like it might be too early in the morning for orangutangs in his kitchen.

Permalink

"Oooooooooook."

Permalink

Ponder glances between the Librarian and Brian.

"He's, er, very clean?"

Permalink

The Archchancellor clears his throat.

Permalink

"Er, right. And this is Archchancellor Ridcully head of the unseen university."

Ponder gestures at the smaller man.

"And this is the Bursar."

"Archchancellor, this is Brian," he gestures, "I landed in his house."

Permalink

"Uh. Hi," says Brian. He takes a bite of his own bowl of oatmeal.

Jackson wanders in. "I heard som- why is there a monkey in the kitchen?"

Permalink

"Eeek," the Librarian says in a low, threatening tone.

Permalink

"You're in his house," Ponder says, exasperated.

Permalink

"He says he'll let it go if you give him a banana. Can I, er, have a banana? Sorry."

Permalink

...Jackson looks bewildered. Brian grabs a banana from the fruit bowl, which contains two bananas, one apple, and three oranges.

Permalink

Ponder gives the Librarian the banana.

"He doesn't like being called a monkey," he explains.

"Archchancellor, this is Jackson. He also lives here. Jackson, this is the head of my university, the Bursar, and the Librarian."

He gestures at each in turn.

Permalink

"...the librarian is a... uh... a that?" says Jackson.

"Orangutang," says Brian.

Permalink

"How did you get here?"

Permalink

The Archchancellor waved a hand.

"Your whatsit told us how."

Permalink

"Hex," Ponder says.

Permalink

"Yes, that. What were you doing? I thought we agreed to no more experimenting on the fabric of universe without a signed waiver and seven months prior approval."

Permalink

"We did. You signed it."

Permalink

"No I didn't!"
