[3 YEARS LATER, AT THE ANTIQUES ROADSHOW...]
Antiques Roadshow Guy is looking at a teapot. Stevetta is SWOON!'ing with affection.
ARG: "Hmm...I should say this is worth £10,000"
Beaver and Steve show an Egyptian tomb to ARG.
Beaver: "Would you take a look at this?"
ARG: "Oh my yes, this is very interesting!"
Beaver: "Yes...and it's even more interesting inside..."
ARG SLI-I-IDE!'s the tomb open.
Powerful rays TSHOOON! out of the tomb.
Beaver: "Close your eyes Steve!"
ARG and Stevetta are now smoking skeletons on the ground.
Beaver: "It worked! Now Stevetta is bound to fall for you!"
Beaver: "Ah well, you know what they say Steve: better to have loved and destroyed your girl with the power of the Ark of the Covenant to never to have loved at all."
Steve: "You're right Beaver. Let's go home and have some tea."
- Silhouettes of Beaver and Steve feature on the Ark of the Covenant.
The Ark of the Covenant and its effects are a reference to Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark.
