"What's the password?" asked The Entity, with a weasel-like demeanor. Spy IQ was confused, until he realized he had received a strange postcard weeks before. The crafty spy still needed to enter the underground cellar leading to a new set of gadgets to be used on the next mission, but he was halted by The Entity's presence. What the postcard said might help Spy IQ find the password The Entity needs to allow the spy into the secret lair. The postcard says this:


A relative of mine was expelled.
It was my niece.
Wouldn't you agree?
It was because she joined a band of bikers.
She's doing lots of things wrong.
She always shows a lot of toughness.

P.S.
Isaac Newton:
Near orange bags lying east.
Gets as strange equally slowly.


That P.S. looks like it could be the catalyst to solve for the encrypted password. But, what could it be?



Answer

The password is PIGEON.

If you look carefully at the P.S., you will notice that the first letter of each word spells IN NOBLE GASES:

P.S.
[I]saac [N]ewton:
[N]ear [O]range [B]ags [L]ying [E]ast.
[G]ets [A]s [S]trange [E]qually [S]lowly.

Now, look in the first six lines of the postcard. The symbols for noble gases can be found in the last word of each line, with a letter lying in between:

a relative of mine was eXpElled.
it was my NiEce.
wouldn't you AgRee? etc.

If you take each letter that is within the symbols of the noble gases, you will spell the word PIGEON:

a relative of mine was eX[p]Elled.
it was my N[i]Ece.
wouldn't you A[g]Ree?
it was because she joined a band of biK[e]Rs.
she's doing lots of things wR[o]Ng.
she always shows a lot of tougH[n]Ess.

After saying the password, Spy IQ entered the secret lair and found useful gadgets, including Instant Tile Camoflauge.
