The Beatles have returned to London. Ringo is explaining his predicament to Superintendent Gluck of Scotland Yard: "They have to paint me red before they chop me. It's a different religion from ours...I think."
Gluck, who has a habit of referring to everything as "famous" (the famous ring, the famous Beatles), doesn't seem to believe Ringo's story. John snidely asks him how the Great Train Robbery is going.
Gluck's phone rings, and the caller asks for Ringo. John tells him not to answer it, because it must be "them," and "only me and Paul know we're here." George objects, "I know we're here!" Gluck says he'll take the call himself, because he's a "bit of a famous mimic" and can do a great James Cagney. He then does an incredibly awful imitation of Ringo, causing George to remark, "Not a bit like Cagney."
Strange music begins playing through the phone, and Clang's voice is heard chanting "Go to the window!" The Beatles plug up their ears, but Gluck appears to have fallen into a trance and walks towards the window. We see Clang and several thugs crammed into a phone booth across the street, playing the enchanting music. One thug prepares a bow and arrow with a balloon attached to it.
The arrow flies through Gluck's window, pinning the balloon against the wall. A second arrow pierces the balloon, splattering red paint everywhere. Fortunately, no one is hit and the paint misses Ringo entirely.
The music stops and Gluck snaps out of his trance. He dashes under his desk, and the Beatles follow him. Outside, Clang is angry that the arrows have missed their target. Gluck finally believes Ringo's story. Ringo asks him for protection, since the Beatles have a recording session the following day. Gluck promises to provide protection.
