They go to the breach site, a music hall, and secure the area. While Olivia interrogates the local witnesses, Lincoln tests for gravity aberrations. When eh confirms that the gravity in the area is destabilizing, he reports to Broyles, who orders a quarantine.

Lincoln prepares the quarantine device but at the last minute, Astrid informs them that it isn't necessary...

Episode Quotes
Charlie Francis: Oh, I was thinking, "Hey, maybe a slow day, it being Saturday and all." No rest for the wicked.
Alternate Olivia: Oh, you're not wicked, Charlie. You just pretend very, very well.

Alternate Olivia: So exactly how big would the worms get if you stopped dosing yourself?
Charlie Francis: They're not worms.
Everyone Else: They're arachnids!

Walter: So... horrible as is it so say, today is the day for which you were created. What I could never have imagined is that I would be asking you to help me save my son. I'm so sorry. Well, if none of you are gonna kill me... I think I'll go and have a bit of a cry.

Walter: Now, I want you to think back to when you were just young children. Back to when you were just young boys and girls. Think back to when your imagination could--could take you wherever you wanted to go. Imagine this universe slipping away, opening like a curtain. Allow the universe to pass right through you. Allow your imagination to take you to the other side.

Charles Francis: Going to the strip club later?
Lincoln Lee: Someone has to visit your sister.

Lincoln Lee: Yeah, you don't want to leak worms all over the guy. Makes a bad first impression.
Charlie Frances: They're not worms.
