Obfuscating Rosicrucian: "You see, it is a Thing. And it is underneath the cathedral."
Undercover Rosicrucian: "The Nazis are coming, you'd better get that Thing. Also, don't look at my face. It is for a flashback later."
Rosicrucians: Haul the Thing out of the Place and put it on a Conveyance.
Dying Rosicrucian: "I hope the Thing will stop the Nazis in about eighty years, along with the Twelve."
Confused Rosicrucian: "The what?"
Unhelpful Rosicrucian: "Twelve? It's a number? But it's also a clock and also a place and also some guys."
PRESENT DAY: BROOKLYN - OR SO WE ARE TOLD
Jacinda: "I love just having fun days with you, Goose. We're so fancy-free and romantic, even though we are super old. Let's eat meat from a street vendor, buy a magic clock, and then..."
Goose: "I can't thank you enough for introducing me to the concept of street vendors, a thing of which I had never heard before you."
Jacinda: "Remember when we were in New Delhi? I bought a clock. It's my main thing."
Goose: "Being married to you is so great. If you were ever kidnapped by Nazis I would travel the world looking for magic clocks. All for you."
Jacinda: "Then I hope that doesn't happen, because it sounds like it would make for a shitty TV show. You go back to your print magazine that has made us fabulously wealthy, and I will buy some magic clocks at this flea market."
