SCENE 1 Gordon and a kid walk over to Oscar's can and see a giant letter O on it. Gordon assumes that it stands for "Oscar" or for "open", but Oscar says it's neither, and tells them to unroll a nearby roll of paper. By the time they finish unrolling it, they are far away from Oscar's can, which is what Oscar wanted, according to the message written on the paper.
