Fred: Holy Mother! That looks as old as the pyramids of Egypt!
Jack: Could be. The only difference is the pyramids weren’t repaired six months ago. You’ll notice there’s earth chinking those timbers. It would have to be replaced after each monsoon season.
Carnahan: Wait a minute, are you trying to tell me there’s people on this island?
Jack: Yes, I am. What’s more I’ll characterize them: scared people.
Dwan: Scared of what?
Jack: I don’t know exactly, but whatever it is, apparently they thought they needed a wall this size to keep it out.
Fred: Jack, Jack, let me straighten you out on a couple of points. One, this wall is an ancient ruin. Two, the island is uninhabited…
(the sound of drums rises from behind the wall)
Jack: And three, there’s an uninhabited German beer hall in there with a mechanical band.
