Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


The morning, when they awoke, was sodden with one of those summer mists, like a cloud that is too bleary, too weary, to take itself off the ground and float in the sky, and Olga declared that – as the Poisoned Dwarf, Dr Goebbels, was to be in Munich today, they should take it as an interpause: "all your planning is done, Vlado, tomorrow you will be Apollyon and Prince Alexander there for the taking, to day my friends from the Studios will bring our costumes and the others who will be extras will be here too, we will all get dressed and have a Holiday, agree?" and, albeit a tad reluctantly, Vlado nodded and, almost as though the Wannsee was a movie set and the Director had just called for 'Lights' the cloud parted and the house was bathed in sunshine; Vlado's face was transformed by one of his rare, unpretentious, grins and he said: "everybody take 5, today is about Now, so let's have some Fun!"
