(Charlie is following Gavin with the camera outside at night in the rain, approaching Parliament Square.)
Charlie: Babe, where are you going? Can you slow down?
Gavin: Look, this is supposed to be the place. This is where Lee put the pin in the map!
Charlie: (Sighs.) But, look, we don't even know what we're looking for.
Gavin: Well, hello? That! (Gavin gestures and the camera pans to Big Ben.)
Charlie: (Sighs.) There's no sign of Lee anywhere, babe.
Gavin: Yeah, I know. What's he playing at? Idiot.
Charlie: It's amazing.
Crowd: Hey, Gav, you alright? Lee! Hi! Hiya!
Gavin: Thanks. Have you been- been watching our vlogs and that, yeah?
Crowd: Yeah, yeah.
Gavin: Um... (Sighs.) Have you seen Lee, uh, anywhere recently?
Crowd: Yeah. Yeah, he went over there. Yeah, he went that way. Yes.
Charlie: What'd he do?
Crowd: He just put here some stuff. He put that thing over there.
Gavin: Did he do anything?
Crowd: Yes. Yes. He left a gnome.
Charlie: What did he leave? What?
Gavin: You're joking.
(The camera whips around and spots a gnome in front of the Winston Churchill statue.)
Charlie: What's that?
(Gavin picks up the gnome by the hat and flips it over.)
Gavin: How long ago did he leave this? Did you see?
Crowd: About five minutes ago. Five minutes ago!
Gavin: Five minutes ago? What's he- he's sending us on a wild goose chase and we've got to follow- Oh, hello. (Gavin notices Tariq and Julia approaching.) Bellend alert, Holmes and Watson. Hello.
Julia: Well, what does it say?
Charlie: Hey guys.
Tariq: Hey, what did you you bring the gnome for, Gavin?
Gavin: Yeah, great deduction, Sherlock. But I didn't bring it, did I? Lee's left it for us. It's got this clue on it, or something.
Julia: A gnome with another clue?
Tariq: Yeah, let's have a look. (Tariq tries to grab the gnome from Gavin.)
Gavin: No! Get off! I found it!
Julia and Charlie: Guys!
Tariq: Can't we have a look at it? Gavin-
Julia: (Breaking up the impending fight.) Stop it! We're all working together.
Gavin: I'm not working with you ever again.
Tariq: Yeah, and I'm not working with him, either. No way!
Julia: Gav, let me read the clue. We're all working to get your software back, okay?
Charlie: Babe, please just read the clue then we can solve the riddle.
Gavin: All right. Get the camera on this then. (The camera gets a closeup on the gnome's clue on its base. In the background Big Ben begins to chime.) "You'll need your platforms tomorrow, when I hear Abba it makes me want to go. Hands that don't wave, a face that won't laugh. The time and the place is thirteen and a half."
Charlie: Well, we have to go somewhere else tomorrow.
Gavin: Yeah, well, we'll work it out first.
Tariq: No, I bet we'll work it out first.
Gavin: Yeah, whatever. Yeah, all the best.
Tariq: Yeah, good luck. Good luck.
Julia: Come on. (Julia pulls Tariq away.)
Gavin: "You'll need you platforms to"- Anybody get that?
Charlie: Good one, Gav, now they've gone.
Gavin: Yeah, well I won! Heh.
Gavin: Come on, we need to sort this out. We need to work it out and get going as quickly as possible, come on. Hey guys, thanks a lot, yeah?
Crowd: Yeah, no worries.
Gavin: Thank you very much.
Charlie: God's sakes, Gav!
Gavin: Come on, Charlie! (Gavin begins running away from the Square.)
Charlie: (Sighs.) Can you slow down?
Gavin: Come on! (Gavin begins reading the clue on the gnome again.) "Hands that don't wave, a face that won't laugh, the time and the place is thirteen and a half." What? What does that mean? What does that mean?
Charlie: I have no idea, Gav.
Gavin: Come on.
Charlie: You've been so hot-headed, I don't know what your problem is.
Gavin: Come on! Quick! Quick!
- The clue on the bottom of the gnome:
You’ll need your platforms tomorrow,
When I hear Abba it makes me want to go.
Hands that don’t wave, a face that won’t laugh,
the time and the place is thirteen and a half.
- The solution of this clue is:
Location: Waterloo Station (Waterloo is a song from ABBA and the platforms in the clue are referring to a train station)
Time: 1.30pm (the time is thirteen and a half, what means 13.30 or 1.30pm)
Where exactly: Under the four-faced clock (the line: Hands that don't wave, a face that won't laugh refers to the hands and face of a clock. There hangs a large and famous four-faced clock in the middle of the main concourse. Meeting "under the clock at Waterloo" is a traditional rendezvous.)
