Recap

Rosen and Bill watch Cold War test footage of the use of light stimulation to trigger responses in brain activity. Bill doesn't see the connection but Rosen reminds him that Stanton had Burton fast-track the development of the photic stimulator through the FDA Kat has taken it apart but found nothing, but Rosen figures that it was used to enhance Jason Miller's ability and thousands will be distributed shortly.

Episode Quotes
Gary: Dr. Rosen, why do I have to go? I don't want to go. I don't like going places.
Rosen: Gary, you're part of the team and I want everybody doing security.
Gary: No, but Bill, he does the security. Because Bill--Bill's the muscle. And the muscle is in the arm. I'm the brain, and the brain stays in the head. The office is the head. That's my metaphor.
Bill: All right, that's a great metaphor, Gary. You are the brain.
Gary: Yeah, well, tell Dr. Rosen the brain stays in the head.

Skylar Adams: She just--she never stops. She wakes me up at 4 in the morning to tell me she's discovered a new prime number.
Rosen: Well, as they say, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Didn't you once take apart your family's Volkswagen and make an air cannon or something?
Skylar Adams: It was a Nissan.

Gary: I don't like bees. They have evil intent.

Zoe: Let me help.
Cameron: (bleeding) Okay. Here, right there.
Zoe: You've lost two 213ccs of blood. That's 7.223868 fluid ounces. I rounded.
Cameron: Yeah, I'm gonna take your word for it, kid.
