Once the Baudelaires receive the last couplet from Hector, Klaus smiles since it allows him to figure out where the Quagmires are hiding. He finds that the first letter of each line on Isadora’s couplets spells out the word “Fountain” indicating that Count Olaf had hidden their friends inside the recently constructed Fowl Fountain. Running out of time, they use the wooden bench to ram into the weakened wall to break the wall open. They escape the prison and go to the Fowl Fountain where Sunny presses the crow eye button freeing the Quagmires who are both wet but their notebooks are intact. Duncan and Isadora explained that Count Olaf locked them in the tower at his house before having his associates build the Fowl Fountain to imprison them. For 4 days, the Quagmires attached a couplet to a crow’s feet every morning, which fell off the Nevermore Tree when the paper was dry. They also tell the Baudelaires that the murdered man was Jacques Snicket. However, the mob is catching up to them and they need to run. Hope Hector can get his hot air mobile home up and running in time.

The song I chose here is “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor which was also the theme song for Rocky III. It’s often used during training or fighting montages in movies. Though its original meaning goes around surviving through combat as far as I know. In this version, I have Klaus figure out the couplets, the children breaking out of the prison, and saving the Quagmires.

 

“Eye of the Fountain”

Klaus:
Hector gave us the last scroll
Laid out all of the couplets
Now as you two try to break through the wall
I know find where our friends hide

The first letters of each scroll verse
Spells out the word “Fountain”
They couldn’t speak to us until light of dawn
They’re in town and held up inside

In the eye of the fountain
In the center of town
Where we’ll our friends, the Quagmires
That’s where they’re hiding
So let’s go at first light
So we’ll rescue our friends from the eye of the fountain

Violet:
Now it’s dawn, think something quick
Cause they’ll be here any moment
This bench as a ram might just do the trick
Make a hole so we can get out and fly

To the eye of the fountain
In the center of town
Where we’ll our friends, the Quagmires
That’s where they’re hiding
So let’s go at first light
So we’ll rescue our friends from the eye of the fountain

Klaus:
Running out, straight to the square
Get to the Fowl Fountain
How to get the Quagmires out of there
And to open the fountain they hide

It’s the eye of the fountain
In the center of town
Where we’ll our friends, the Quagmires
That’s where they’re hiding
So let’s go at first light
So we’ll rescue our friends from the eye of the fountain

Both:
The eye of the fountain
The eye of the fountain
The eye of the fountain
The eye of the fountain
