The Pink Vice advertisement.

The guard guns down the terrorist, before a grenade thrown by the terrorist explodes.

  • The first entrant is a foreigner with valid papers.
  • The second entrant has an expired passport from Antegria and should therefore be denied.
  • The fourth entrant is an Arstotzkan trying to catch a bus and asks the inspector to hurry up. Their papers are always valid.
  • The sixth entrant is an Arstotzkan woman who will give the inspector a Pink Vice ad. As with the rest of the Pink Vice members, her papers are always valid.
  • During the inspection of the seventh entrant, an entrant will jump the wall and the alarm will sound. The intruder will be gunned down, but not before throwing a grenade that kills a guard. This is a scripted event, meaning that the day will continue until the seventh entrant even if the clock reaches 6pm.
