(Bozuko has reduced his Finding Use For Garbage quality to Average  for the duration of this scene.)
Skipito, Kitaro, Bozuko and Toru push like hell on the wall, trying to replicate the weight of seven ninja with only four people, all grunting and straining with the effort. Kitaro occasionally reaches up to jiggle the handle as everyone's eyes begin to tear from the gas fumes and the odor of Wasabi from the floor below.
The overall effect is similar to what you'd hear in the men's bathroom down the hall.
As you push and struggle and grunt, the metal buckling beneath your feet, you reflect on what you've gained and lost here in the final training room. Gained: a sense of comraderie and teamwork. Lost: Haruko the Navigator and Hidoi the Mahoutsukai, trapped under rubble, or perhaps whisked away somewhere underground to be retrained. Will you ever see them again? Possibly. Are they dead? Probably. Are those two things mutually exclusive? Probably not.
After several long seconds of pushing and struggling, there's a faint click, and some hidden catch within the door gives way. Kitaro turns the handle, and it swings open. And not a moment too soon...
"Let me out," says Morboko. "I really need to pee." And with that, the kunoichi disappears into the darkness beyond, headed for the ladies room.
The rest of you, I imagine, are just as eager to leave the room, so you scramble like only ninja can and make it through the door just as the catwalk collapses behind you. When the last ninja is through, the door swings shut, and you are all left standing in perfect darkness, the only sound being the faint uneasy muttering of a Ninja Burger delivery van as it sputters and stalls out because someone stuck something in its tailpipe. And then there is silence, except for a faint, feminine "Hello." It is not Morboko's voice.
It is dark. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.
