Of course, Quigley’s reveal is a massive bombshell that Violet and Klaus didn’t see coming since he was thought dead for the last 5 books at least. Hell, Violet basically tells Quigley that he’s dead while Klaus reminded him that he burned up with his parents. But that isn’t so, because his mom told him to hide in a trapdoor leading to a tunnel while she went to look for Duncan and Isadora. But no one came back for him so he couldn’t get out of the secret passageway. So he decided to follow it, which led him to Dr. Montgomery’s which was already empty. There he found out about his parents’ death and his siblings going to Prufrock Prep from a newspaper. He planned to go and meet them. But Jacques Snicket showed up and told him what he knew about V.F.D., which he thinks stands for Volunteer Fire Department as well as fights fires. Jacques also told Quigley about the schism, the insignia, codes, the schism, and the Baudelaires whom he needed to find “before it was too late.” He then left the boy for Paltryville and never came back. Shortly after, Quigley left for Paltryville due to hearing about Count Olaf kidnapping his siblings and Uncle Monty’s house being on fire. There, he visited Dr. Orwell’s office before joining the Snow Scouts. And like the Baudelaires, he too, was hoping to find more information.

Once again, I turn to Paul Simon with his “Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard.” The original version about two boys breaking the law where they’re arrested after a police call. Though a “radical priest” intervenes who’s many people have thought was a Berrigan brother. Though some have thought the boys were buying recreational drugs. In this version, Quigley describes his time from the fire at Quagmire Mansion to meeting the Baudelaires.

 

“Me and the Baudelaires Up on the Mountain”

Sung by Quigley Quagmire

While in the library, I saw glass break
During the fire at Quagmire Mansion
When mama found out, she told me to hide out
Under a trapdoor for my protection

She told me to wait, while she got my sibs
But she didn’t come, no, she didn’t come

I stayed underground and walked through a tunnel
That took me to Dr. Montgomery’s
There I found out my folks died
While by siblings were sent to Prufrock Preparatory

I’m on my way
I don’t know where I’m goin’
I’m on my way, I’m takin’ my time
But I don’t know where
Looking for Duncan and Isadora
See us, me and the Baudelaires up on the mountain
See us, me and the Baudelaires up on the mountain

Whoah!
Then Jacques Snicket arrived told me about you guys
He tried to track for weeks
Taught me everything about V.F.D. before he left me
Stayed till a fire forced me to leave

And I’m on my way
I don’t know where I’m goin’
I’m on my way, I’m takin’ my time
But I don’t know where
Looking for Duncan, and Isadora
See us, me and the Baudelaires up on the mountain
See us, me and the Baudelaires up on the mountain
See us, me and the Baudelaires up on the mountain
