Unscramble the Blue Letters

Upon emerging from stasis, Ethic is the unfortunate recipient of three sruriepss.
The first: a pisron cell.
The second: complete amnesia.
And the third: a mysterious stranger has gotten stuck seinqzeug through the bars on her window.
His name is hdgee, and he has come to help ehitc save the wrold. But first they have to break out of jail.
Hedge turns his hand into a lockpick and outlines the calghnlee ahead.
Each lock in the prison works in the same unusual way. Inside the khyleoe is a red dial that can be rotated to one of 100 positions numbered 1 through 100. The key for a given cell spins the dial to the right position, which, when stopped there, makes it turn green and unlocks the door. It would be out of the question to steal keys from a guard, but Hedge has a better idea.

It would be out of the question to steal keys from a guard, but Hedge has a better idea.
