Jim and Artie arrive at a lighthouse to meet with to meet with Professor McClennan. They admit that they’re late because of the recent tidal and point out that he summoned them on what he claimed was a matter of national security. McClennan notes that there has been a string of tidal waves across the world in the last 36 hours. H explains that tidal waves are caused by earthquakes and volcanoes, but both can be ruled out. Before McClennan can continue, a blind beggar finds his way into the lighthouse and says he has a message from his associate, Professor Pringle. McClennan takes the note to the outside glass to read it and is shot down. The agents turn off the light and check on McClennan to confirm that he’s dead. The note asks for McClennan to meet with Pringle at the Cantina Del Pescado and Jim tells the beggar that they won’t be getting any answers...

Episode Quotes
Professor Abigail J. Pringle: And now, who are you?
James: I'm just a poor but proud country boy that came to the city to make his fortune.

Captain Horatio Philo: Well? What do you think of it?
James: Like something out of Dante.
Captain Horatio Philo: Listen to the hum of the mighty workings, Mr. West.

Dr. Abigail J. Pringle: Five minutes, I believe you said.
James: Give or take an eternity or two.

Professor Abigail J. Pringle: To you two gentlemen. Inventive, brilliant, courageous.
Artemus: We'll drink to that... because it's true.

Professor Abigail J. Pringle: And now I must be going.
James: What about tonight?
Professor Abigail J. Pringle: I'm afraid not, Jim. You see, certain events in the last few days have reminded me of the essential... shall we call them, advantages of being a woman. Especially when there are handsome desirable men around. Thank you for that, Jim. I've come to realize I can be a scientist and wear a wedding ring at the same time.
