Back at the Queequeg, Violet and Klaus scramble to cure Sunny who’s nearing death by the minute. Remembering a chapter on of Fiona’s Mushroom Minutiae, he flips to the chapter on the infamous Medusoid Mycelium where he finds the poem in which the cure’s listed as horseradish. He then remembers the horseradish factory reference in Kit Snicket’s letter. So they search the kitchen but there’s no horseradish to be found which is crazy since you’d expect to find some there. They also find a coconut cream cake Phil and Sunny made for Violet’s fifteenth birthday which almost everyone else forgot about. Meanwhile, Sunny wheezes away as if she’s trying to tell her older siblings something. So since she’s the best person to know a horseradish substitute, Violet and Klaus pull out their baby sister from the diving helmet. And by this point, she’s got mushrooms in her mouth. But Sunny musters her remaining breath to tell her siblings the very thing that would save her life.

The_Medusoid_Mycelium

The song I went with is “Stay Alive (Reprise)” from Hamilton, in which Philip Hamilton’s parents rush to his side after he’s shot in a duel. Unfortunately, he’s ends up dying in his mother Eliza’s arms while his father Alex is by his side. For Alexander Hamilton, this is a major tragedy that emotionally shatters him beyond all recognition. In this version, Violet and Klaus scramble to find a cure for Sunny who fortunately, ends up saving her own life in the end with one word.

 

“Stay Alive (Reprise)” (ASOUE Version)

Violet:
Stay alive…
Stay alive…
Stay alive…

Klaus:
Where’s that book?
There it is!

Let’s flip over this. I’m sure there’s some information on surviving the Medusoid Mycelium.

“A single spore has such grim power
That you may die within the hour
Is dilution simple? But of course!
Just one small root of a horse.”

Violet:
Why the hell are you looking there?

Klaus:
I’m doing ev’rything I can!
Remember that horseradish factory at Lousy Lane?

Violet:
Horseradish?

Klaus:
Vi
See to the kitchen and go check
I’m sure we’ll find some there

Violet:
Okay, okay. Shh
Okay, okay,
Shh. It’s mostly gum
A coconut cream cake.

Shh

Okay, Okay
Okay, Okay
Okay

Sunny, tell me and
Stay alive…

Klaus:
It
Says “Violet’s Fifteenth Date
We all seemed to forget
We all seemed to forget

Violet:
Stay alive…

Fiona:
No!

Klaus:
It’s the only way!

Violet (Klaus):
Is she breathing? Is she going to survive this? (Stay alive…)

Klaus:
We must find a close horseradish match!

Violet:
Klaus, I think we Sunny’s trying to tell us something

Klaus:
Sunny–

Violet:
We got to get her

Klaus:
Let’s pull her out

Violet:
She’s got mushrooms on her mouth

Klaus:
I don’t know how she will survive

Violet:
She’s wants to tell us something.

Klaus:
Shh. Okay. Okay.

Violet:
Please, God, don’t let her die.

Klaus:
Dear God, please don’t.

Violet:
Un deux trois quatre
Cinq six sept huit neuf

Good
Un deux trois quatre
Cinq six sept
Huit neuf
Sept huit neuf—
Sept huit…

Klaus:
Un deux trois quatre
Cinq six sept huit neuf

Sunny:
Wasabi…
