Sheila connects with Clive, although she can only see his legs. She wonders what he's doing. He says he hears something in the roof. He's in Cooktown at the moment. He thinks it's pythons in the roof. Sheila is horrified to see he has a goatee beard.
SHEILA: You look like some poor man's Bond villain. You said you were going to shave off the beard.
CLIVE: I did... most of it anyway.
Sheila tells him to get rid of the beard, and switch to another hotel room. There seems to be a delay on the video, as he responds to Sheila's previous comments, confusing her. She angrily blames the internet. He says they couldn't get him another hotel room, but he is worried about the snake strangling him in his sleep.
SHEILA: Don't be silly, they never attack people in awful shirts.
Clive asks how David's going with the transplant. She says not so good, but he's startled by the sound of clicking, like jaws or something. Sheila says it isn't a snake, it's a gecko. He looks around frightened. Sheila tells him to harden up. He says they're discussing organ donation at the conference. Sheila tells him not to donate his body to science, as she's not done with it yet.
SHEILA: I wouldn't mind a snake in my room, if you know what I mean.
Clive is looking around the ceiling, worried. Sheila hangs up. Clive tells her not to leave him, then realises she's left him.
