Just when the two men have been defeated Elaine asks how Stallman knew they where in trouble and he tells it was his friend that told him about it. The friend enters by climbing down a rope from the sky with red cape and goggles.

He is an activist in favor of liberalizing copyright laws and a proponent of the {{w|Creative Commons}} organization.
