Rex's roommate is Simonides, a megalomaniac whom Circe transformed into a bird. To distract Simon from his schemes of world conquest, Rex invites him on the mission. Barry interrupts the story to suggest Simon should either carry a gun or have large breasts; Rex promises to introduce his co-worker Hypatia Krupskaya to pacify Barry's demands. Exiting the library, Rex helps rescue a woman lost in the stacks. Rex uses crystals to teleport himself and Simon to the starship which will bring them to Benzine V, but accidentally teleports them both mid-air; on the second attempt, he gets it right.
