Westley awakens in the Pit of Despair. An albino is tending to the wound on his wing.
Westley: Where am I?
Albino: The Pit of Despair. Don’t even think about trying to escape. The chains are far too thick. And don’t dream of being rescued, either. The only way in is secret, and only the prince, the count, and I know how to get in and out.
Westley: Then I’m here till I die?
Albino: Till they kill you, yeah.
Westley: Then why bother curing me?
Albino: The prince and the count always insist on everyone being healthy before they’re broken.
Westley: So it’s to be torture then? I can cope with torture. Don’t believe me?
Albino: You survived the Fire Swamp, so you must be very brave. But nobody withstands The Machine.
Meanwhile, a despondent Butterquack wanders the halls of Florin Castle.
Humperduck: She’s been like that ever since the Fire Swamp. It’s my father’s failing health that’s upsetting her.
Count Rugen: Of course.
