In the Mayan times, at Chichen Itza, some Mayans check their Calendar, which says the world will end after the 13th Baktun. To prevent this event, a human sacrafice is about to take place. Meanwhile, Glutton has been fattening, preparing himself to be sacraficed. His Prime Minister tells him, that he will be lonely once he is sacraficed, but Glutton says, that he never said anything about sacraficing himself. When a Mayan Priest enters, the Prime Minister reveals that he has a plan and asks the Priest if he's interested in Performing Arts. The Priest replies: "Of course i do" and is told by the Prime Minister to put a sack over his head so he can be the Begger and to go to the Stage, which is actually the balcony, where Glutton would've been executed, instead the Priest gets executed and his head onto the ground, where Kids start kicking him as a ball.

Lisa Simpson: I'll stay here and guard the Exhibition.
Homer Simpson: All right then. But if you see any crooks like Rastapopolous, call us.

Captain Haddock: Billions of Blistering Blue Barnacles, what did i do? Hm, maybe i didn't use enough gun powder. Maybe the Machine wasn't working properly, perhaps it malfunctioned before we tested it with Oil. Huh? Yikes! A mini Black Hole! And what's it doing here in Springfield?
Dr. Muller: I believe it's me.

Ivan: And now, the Deal is not over.
Captain Haddock: Thundering Typhoons, will somebody please explain.
Dr. Muller: With pleasure. It began when Puschov, Ivan and i were at Khemedite.
Dr. Muller, Puschov and Ivan: Hail Satan. Hail Satan. Hail Satan. The Minister of Sinister. Rude Dud with a bad Zud.
