I've talked with him.

It's a sad field.

How can a field be sad?

I don't know. Just is.

Oh, look. There's an angry tree.

There's some worried mud.



- What?

- I just went over a grumpy stone.

Whoa, whoa. Stop.

Map says to go that way.

- The sign says that way.

- Yeah, but if...

you know, if they're different,

we should check.

Or we just follow the signs.


We could just throw the map away.

Look, it says Kilairney House

Hotel on the left.

All right, I'm going.

Thought I saw someone.

Oh, yeah?

Was that the end of the story?

You don't have your map out.

Just following the signs now?

- I'm giving you a little bit of time.

- I win.

Can't see what it says.

- TOM:
It says "Kilairney House."

They're hidden a little bit.

- This way.

- Yeah.



Um... that's wrong.

What does the map say?

I don't know. Can't see

with this fucking orange blob.

- Well, we followed the signs.

- I'm going to call the hotel.


He's going to say follow the signs.

We may as well just turn round

and phone back when we come back.

- Hey...

- (POPS)

- ow... f*ck.

- Sorry.

- I have... sorry.


We've got a reservation

for tonight,

but we've been

following the signs...

We've been following the signs

but we've got lost.

Shh! And we don't know

where to go.

We've been trying to find

the way for a little bit.

- Um... well, there's...


they've got two signs, and...

Yeah, no, that's what we've been doing,

but now it's telling us to go back.

Yeah, and I was trying to map

read, but it was saying different

to what the signs were saying.


They just hung up.


- Hey, I'm going to go...

- It's not ringing back.

- I'm going back, okay?
