SCENE 1 Gordon and Jay walk over to Oscar's trash can and see a giant letter O on it. Gordon assumes that it stands for "Oscar" or for "open" or "only," but Oscar says it's none of those, and tells them to unroll the nearby roll of paper the O is attached to. By the time Gordon finishes unrolling it, he is far away from Oscar's can, which is what Oscar wanted according to the message written on the paper.
