Well, why would we start by doing the boring options?

Have you found any brain in there yet, Doc?

*Fishing out a watch from the privates left pocket

"Actually the watch does seem to be ticking rather loudly. But still, we are so nearly finished with the operation, I think we should see it through to the end. Miss Adler - the brain extraction device if you please."

Is this the brain extraction device, Sir?

I seem to remember, the traditional way of removing one's brains is to take a sharp, red hot poker, stick it up one's nose, scramble things about a bit, and then rip it all out through the nostrils.

*considers this for a moment*

Do you think the fire in the fireplace is hot enough?
Or should I ask Igor to get the not so secret forge going?

*Leans over and picks up a coal*

"AH HOO HA! Ho-ho-ho! Ohh!"

*Puts the coal back*

"Ah. You are right, it is not nearly hot enough. I believe you may speak to Igor through the secret conversation tube, which is presently disguised as a potted plant. I'm...just not sure which one. You might need to try a few of them. The Aloe Vera might be a contender..."

*shakes potted mexican plant and scowls*

Well, Vera may not be a myth any longer, she and Igor are now engaged.

As to the forge, they're pretty sure it's actually a forgery.

"Vera and Igor...now there's a pretty couple...probably."

*Turns back to the private and firmly inserts a brass olfactory speculum into an appropriate orifice, opens the valve  and peers into it.

"By the great heavens above! There would appear to be an octopus living inside this man's head! How on earth did that get there? Come and lend me a hand people - we must extract the thing!"

*Glances around, whilst struggling with a nasal tentacle.

"We must not let word of this reach...you know...the Others."

*pops head out of the fireplace*

"Someone mention the Others? Sorry about disappearing for so long; there's a little pocket universe in one of the bathroom cupboards. I just managed to find my way out."

*dusts himself off and looks around the room*

"So what have be been up to? Or not been up to?"

"Well, I don't really think that the end can be assessed as of itself as being the end because what does the end feel like? It's like saying when you try to extrapolate the end of the universe, you say, if the universe is indeed infinite, then how - what does that mean? How far is all the way, and then if it stops, what's stopping it, and what's behind what's stopping it? So, what's the end, you know, is my question to you."

Oh, hello, managed to find my way back from a very strange place in one of the bathroom cabinets. Bit peckish though - any of that fish left?

*closely inspects room

Hellooo! what do we have here written on the back of the young soldiers head?

"Place 3 washed coriander roots in a mortar with 6 small green chillies, 2 garlic cloves and a pinch of salt. Pound to a paste, then mix in a teaspoon of sugar, a tablespoon of fish sauce, the juice of 2 limes and a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. Place the dipping sauce in a bowl.
 
For 4 people, gut and de-beak a kilogram of octopus. Cut single tentacles if a little large or leave the octopus whole if tiny.
 
Heat a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in a pan or on a flat grill until it begins to smoke. Fry the octopus for 2-3 minutes a side, then serve with the dipping sauce."

I'm up for some of that - now we just need a nice fresh octopus...

Yes, why not? Smoked paprika I think.

I say young Cubinoid, what's that you're hiding in your pocket? Is that a tentacle or are you just pleased to... um sorry, wrong genre for a moment - must be the after effects of the bathroom cabinet and interdimensional vectoring!

It is, it's a tentacle! Would there be an octopus on the other end of it by any chance?

"There is only one way to find out! FOR SCIENCE!"

*grabs the tentacle, puts her dainty boot against the Private's cheek and pulls. Hard.

Nothing happens.

Pulls. Harder.

The tentacle gets longer. And longer. Longer still.

PULLS WITH ALL STRENGTH.

Flies suddenly backwards against the wall, lies there moaning, with an octopus firmly attached to the face*

Hmmm, I've got to say that in my long study of Nipponese woodcuts, any combination of young ladies and uncooked tentacles is bound to end in tears... is this fire hot enough for a deep pan of oil, do you think?

*Peers into nostril

"Hang on - there's something else in there...gnnn"

*Pulls out a small scroll, wipes off mucous, unravels it

"Hmm...unusual writing. It looks roughly cyrillic, but appears to be coded in some way."

*Looks at Evelyn Adler over the rim of glasses.

"Nice octopus. It seems to have become rather attached to you, Miss."
