MePhone4 says that this must be settled with a tiebreaker challenge, in which the two of them are on a large platform suspended over a lake (it is unknown how they got there), and the first contestant to fall into the lake below would be the first person eliminated from Inanimate Insanity. Knife asks Paper if he actually thinks that he can beat him up and pushes him off the platform immediately. However, Paper quickly grabs the pole just before he hits the water, which made Knife angry, and he started to drop objects on Paper. These included a bowling ball, an apple, Taco, and a dolphin.
