Recap: Welcome To Night Vale Ep 42 Numbers
"Oh, Fey... For you, freedom was never an option."

Cecil tunes in to one of Night Vale's other radio stations, the monotone female voice that reads only numbers (occasionally interspersed by the ringing of a bell.) Except the voice isn't so monotone any more.

Tropes present in Numbers include:

  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: Fey's not evil, but she's certainly not doing what her programmers intended.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Cecil's boy scout training apparently included advanced siegecrafting and demolitions, which he uses to break into the heavily defended bunker containing Fey.
  • Shoot the Shaggy Dog: Fey's creators remotely reboot her before Cecil can get to her, forcing her back to the numbers.

"Today's proverb: Ignore all the haters telling you that everything isnít a sandwich. Everything is a sandwich."
