For those too lazy to learn about black and white comedy films, we’ve posted the relevant parts here:

Baravelli: [through speakeasy’s door] Who are you?
Professor Wagstaff: I’m fine, thanks, who are you?
Baravelli: I’m fine too, but you can’t come in unless you give the password.
Professor Wagstaff: Well, what is the password?
Baravelli: Aw, no. You gotta tell me. Hey, I tell what I do. I give you three guesses. It’s the name of a fish.
Professor Wagstaff: Is it Mary?
Baravelli: Ha-ha. That’s-a no fish.
Professor Wagstaff: She isn’t? Well, she drinks like one. Let me see: Is it sturgeon?
Baravelli: Hey, you crazy. Sturgeon, he’s a doctor cuts you open when-a you sick. Now I give you one more chance.
Professor Wagstaff: I got it. Haddock.
Baravelli: That’s-a funny. I gotta haddock, too.
Professor Wagstaff: What do you take for a haddock?
Baravelli: Well-a, sometimes I take-a aspirin, sometimes I take-a Calamel.
Professor Wagstaff: Say, I’d walk a mile for a Calamel.
Baravelli: You mean chocolate calamel. I like that too, but you no guess it. Hey, what’s-a matter, you no understand English? You can’t come in here unless you say, “Swordfish.” Now I’ll give you one more guess.
Professor Wagstaff: …swordfish, swordfish… I think I got it. Is it “swordfish”?
Baravelli: Hah. That’s-a it. You guess it.
Professor Wagstaff: Pretty good, eh?

So the password is:  Swordfish

After loggin into the laptop, the passcode for the box becomes apparent.

Unless you have the helmet light, this will be fun!
Head straight on into the darkness, there may be enemies, watch for the red eyes in the darkness.
