Passepartout may approach a group of local drinkers, sharing some vodka at the top of a large staircase. He can ask them about the city and themselves, like why they are all so subdued with alcohol. They respond that this is them at peace, a rare thing in Odessa ever since their city has been overrun. When asked to specify what it has been overrun with they simply respond, "with Jews". At this Fogg makes known his desire to leave, but Passepartout can leave a parting remark about how it was the Tsar who invaded, not the Jews, if he wishes; it will not change their mind.
If a different conversation route is taken Passepartout can discuss the group's drinking habits, either advising them to drink in moderation or buying a bottle of Vodka from the group.
