The students, as geese, fly to Antarctica to study magic with Mayakovsky. Mayakovsky takes away their voices, and demands that they perform a spell that fits a nail perfectly into a board. Everyone is having trouble with the spell, but eventually they are successful. Quentin spells out dick with nails, and Mayakovsky slaps him, telling him to now extract the nails. Alice kisses Quentin. 

Mayakovsky returns their voices, and tells them their next task is to mind control bugs. Quentin and Alice are having trouble, so they now get zapped if they don't successfully guide the bugs. They pass the test. Mayakovsky then tells them to remove their clothes and throws them out into the freezing cold. Quentin and Alice become foxes and become frisky with each other. When they get back inside, they have sex.
