  • Exoposition
  • "But the story is full of mistakes," Violet said.
  • "Well, I'm sure the story in The Daily Punctilio will help the authorities finally capture Olaf, and then your relatives will be less skittish."
  • Conflict
  • I've read three books on crows," Klaus said. "They're perfectly harmless."
  • Yes, I know," Violet said. "It's unusual to see so many crows in one place, but they're nothing to worry about. It's small potatoes."
  • "You've really captured Count Olaf."
  • Rising Action
  • "But I'm not Count Olaf!" the man cried. "My name is Jacques, and — "
  • "It's true," said one of the Elders. A man arrived in town this morning, with one eyebrow and a tattoo of an eye on his ankle."
  • It begins when the Baudelaires are in Mr. Poe's office, looking at The Daily Punctilio (a newspaper full of lies about the Quagmires, Baudelaires, and Count Olaf). Mr. Poe gives a brochure to the Baudelaires because a new program allows an entire village to serve as guardian.
  • Climax
  • "Don't be ridiculous, Olaf," Klaus said disgustedly.
  • "Apparently I was mailed a brochure about this program several weeks ago,"
  • The children naturally choose V.F.D. as they recognize the acronym which Duncan and Isadora Quagmire had previously discovered. The children depart for the unknown V.F.D. by bus, and after a long, hot and dusty walk from the bus stop, they reach the town of V.F.D., which is filled with crows.

  • Conclusion
  • When the children run to the uptown jail where Jacques is being held, they learn that he is dead. V.F.D.'s police officer, Luciana announces that Jacques (as Count Olaf) has been murdered in the night, and Olaf, masquerading as Detective Dupin, accuses the Baudelaires of murdering "Count Olaf".
  • "So you're finally admitting that you know who he is!" "I locked Count Olaf in the uptown jail last night, and when I arrived here in the morning he had been killed. I have the only key to the jail, so his death is quite a mystery."
  • "I am the famous Detective Dupin. I am wearing these plastic shoes and sunglasses because they're cool. Count Olaf is the name of the man who was murdered last night, and these three
  • While they are locked up,Officer Luciana comes in and brings them water and bread, and Violet uses the bread and water to allow them to escape At this point they flee the mob coming to burn them, and make a run for the outskirts of town.They reach the outskirts of town and Hector arrives in his hot-air mobile home. as the hot-air mobile home heads towards the horizon.
  • We're going to pour the pitcher of water so it runs down the bench, and hits the wall," she said. "Then it'll run down the wall to the bread, which will act like a sponge and soak up the water. Then we'll squeeze the bread so the water goes into the pitcher, and start over."
  • The book ends with Count Olaf and Officer Luciana, who is revealed to be Esmé Squalor, escaping on a motorcycle, and the Baudelaires fleeing, rather than waiting for the police, as the Daily Punctilio has written an article that they killed Count Olaf.
