At the British History Museum in Lakefield, IL, Pete and Myka go in after hours to collect what Pete believes is an elephant walking stick that causes earthquakes. Myka isn't convinced and notes that there's no evidence that the stick, locked in the case, has been used. Pete starts messing with the museum exhibits, including a hearing aid and a telegraph. When a security guard comes in, they hide and watch as the man takes the stick out of the case. The agents figure he takes it out of the case when he's not using it. They close in but the security guard, Malone, uses the stick to generate an earthquake to cover his escape. Pete and Myka split up and Pete runs outside. He finds Mrs. Frederic waiting for him. She tells him to drop the case and tell his teammates nothing about meeting her. Mrs. Frederic drives off and Pete lies to Myka when she comes out, saying that Malone got away from him...Read the full recap
Pete: News flash! Stop. Bering to admit she was wrong. Stop. Pigs standing by for maiden flight.
Kate Logan: I thought fishing you out of custody would be like old times, Lattimer, but you and your friend are both fully clothed. They catch you too early or too late?
Pete: Well, I've matured since then. I get arrested in my pants all the time now.
Artie: This is Benedict Valda. He's one of the Regents.
Pete: Our Regents? The Regents?
Artie: No, Pete, the South Dakota Board of Regents. Yes, the Regents.
Mrs. Frederic: Patience, Mr. Lattimer.
Pete: Right, well, I'm not too good with patience.
Mrs. Frederic: Challenge yourself.
Claudia: You want to talk about this?
Artie: This is why I said leave it alone.
Claudia: Then maybe you shouldn't have put it on the computer. That's like me leaving a cake out with a note on it that says, "Not for Artie."
Artie: That was one time and I... don't you have a boyfriend that you could be irritating instead of me?
Claudia: This is a list of ways to kill me.
Artie: Oh, they're not... all killing you. There's other options here.
Claudia: "Erase her memory"?
Artie: Well, that's comparatively humane.
Claudia: "Drop her in a non-English-speaking country."
Artie: See, they're just trying to stall for time. They know you'll going to find your way back.
Claudia: That doesn't make me feel any better!
Artie: Don't you think that there's a file like this on all of us? Don't you know that there's one with my name on it?
Claudia: And are you okay with that?
Artie: Claudia... you are a valued member of this team and no one is gonna erase your memory or dispose of your body in a vat of acid.
Claudia: Is that on here too? Oh, my God, Number 43, on the back.
Kate Logan: Either that, or you've gone way too far making up an excuse to see me.
Pete: No. It isn't me. You're still hot, but not "trash your place just to get a date" hot.
Kate Logan: It's happened.
Pete: I'm sure.
Artie: Why did you let him touch all those things?
Myka: What am I, his kindergarten teacher? Plus, you know, we didn't know there would be two artifacts in the same place.
Artie: Myka, it's a museum. It is filled with things from historical events. Anything there could be an artifact. You cannot let him touch anything.
Myka: Artie, it's Pete, okay? It's a win when he doesn't lick anything.
Pete: Oh, God. Are you here to kill me?
Mrs. Frederic: If I was, you'd already be dead, and I'd be halfway to dinner.
