Sean and Vicky escape the Ambassador Hotel with the Secret Service agents in hot pursuit. They split up and Sean steals a car, and then swings around to pick up Vicky, driving away before the agents can catch them.

Sean reminds her that he can use the Internet to reveal her son’s location, and says that she’ll be free when they find Dempsey...

Episode Quotes
Martinez: You have done nothing but lie since the second we've met. I'm done. Surrender.
Sophia: So you can lock us up forever. You know I can't do that.
Martinez: You have ten minutes.
Sophia: That's impossible, Elias.
Martinez: Ten minutes. We encounter any resistance whatsoever, I'll make you regret leaving wherever it is you came from.

Dr. Ellis: But you must understand. To a man such as myself, a discovery of this magnitude--I simply couldn't resist.
James Dempsey: This is unfortunate. If you'd been able to exercise a little more self-control, you might have been able to live long enough to tell your children about this. (shoots him)

Thomas: Change is never easy, Sophia. There's always a cost.
Sophia: Leadership requires discipline, sacrifice, the ability to make people believe in the impossible. No one said anything about easy.

James Dempsey: Every civilization, every religion has its own concept of the guardian angel. What it represents and... what its function is here on Earth. and in every civilization, every religion, they are reduced to metaphor, symbols. When in fact, they are very... very... real.
