SCENE 1 Dr. Nobel Price is testing a machine he just invented: a "wake-up" machine. The way it works is, a spool of thread is attached to the hands of a clock, so that when the hands move, it lowers the string, which is wired on a pulley, which will lower a lever and lift a feather to Dr. Price's nose. He shows the machine to Gordon, who points out to the viewer that there's such a thing as an alarm clock. At that point, the alarm rings, which means it's time for Dr. Price to do his exercises.
