Chapter Escaping through time

To escape through time:
    say "The speed dial's needle on [the flux capacitor] approaches the 88 mph mark quickly as you fall faster and faster. Colorful sparks fly to the air from the device and when it reaches the mark, there's a blinding bright flash of white light.
You crash on the floor. Or, rather, ground - the stone floor is gone. Along with the rest of the castle.

This is definitely the same place. You recognize the surroundings as the same, but there's nothing but some construction materials lying around.

Dark clouds are gathering above.";
    pause the cutscene;
    say "*kZAP*";
    pause the cutscene;
    say "A lightning bolt strikes [the flux capacitor] and there's another bright flash. Stupefied you stand in the cell again, smoke rising from your ears.
[c]Mmm. Smoked monkey,' [the creature] says and licks the part of its face where lips usually are.";
    now the flux capacitor is broken;
    now the flux capacitor is not useful;
    mark the escape down as "travelling through time".
