Dr. Kinney is leading the group into the "prison," a dorm wing in the process of being renovated, and tells them that they'll be monitored by surveillance cameras and nearby TAs. He splits the group up according to the last digit of their Social Security numbers. Evens, which include Wallace and Rider Strong, are the guards. The rest are prisoners. Kinney goes over the rules: sleep deprivation is okay, but any other physical abuse isn't. Prisoners are required to get "a certain number of calories" each day (way to vague that up, there), and to ensure that the food is edible, one guard will have to eat a sample meal before the prisoners touch their food. I wish they'd had that rule in place in my freshman cafeteria. We cut ahead in time as Kinney tells them prisoners are not allowed to use cell phones, watches, or computers. As Wallace collects Logan's watch, Logan tells Wallace that he'll never crack, prompting Wallace to propose a side bet. Logan suggests that the loser streak across campus, and Wallace says that he'll enjoy seeing Logan do it. Well, you're not the typical demographic, Wallace, but you can still just get in line with everyone else. Kinney leads the prisoners away and shows them a piece of paper that reads, "The bomb is located in the mail drop at the corner of 116th Street and Jamison Boulevard." Before I go any further, I should note that Kinney is being played by Dan Castellaneta, and I won't insult your intelligence by telling you what he's most famous for. Although I am surprised that they resisted the urge to replace "bomb" with "donuts" in a last-minute revision of the script. Anyway, if any prisoner wants to go home at any time, he can reveal the information about the bomb to the guards. Logan: "Or click your heels three times." So we've got Logan associated with bondage, submission, streaking, and Judy Garland within the first fifteen minutes. Does anyone see where I'm going with this? Kinney charges the guards with getting the location of the bomb before it goes off and kills innocent people, which will happen forty-eight hours thence. He leaves...
