Pete, Myka, and Artie survey the remains of Warehouse 13 after Sykes’ artifact nuclear bomb detonated. The agents ask Artie what he meant about McPherson’s pocket watch and ask if it can rebuild the warehouse. He tells them that he doesn’t know what the pocket watch does, but believes that it is a key to what might be a fail-safe device. Artie hesitates and says that he feels something, and then runs to what used to be the Ytterbium Chamber. He explains that it was supposed to be impenetrable and he had hoped it would protect what was inside. Artie then runs off to Leena’s to check the television...

Episode Quotes
Claudia: Mrs. Frederic is dead. Steve is dead. H.G. is dead.
Myka: I know, I watched her die. But every day, people die. Sometimes it's people we care about, and sometimes it's even people we love.

Artie: "Carregar O Botao." I don't know what that means.
Myka: That's Portuguese. For, uh, "Push the button. (everyone stares) Really? This is still a surprise to you?

Claudia: Okay, so we have around 23 hours to find this... whatever the hell it is and it's anywhere in the world.
Pete: I like beavers. I'll take Canada.

Artie: I hate running into the Knights of the Templar. They're always so intense and they're overly devoted to whatever kooky task they've been given.
Pete: Yeah, that would be annoying.

Artie: Our minds are starting to interpret weather and music, sounds, colors in a darker, duller context. Our brains are producing far fewer endorphins.
Myka: That explains why Pete didn't hit on that flight attendant.
Pete: I know, right? That's not like me.

Claudia: Hey, Pooh Bear, you want to let me do that?
Artie: Now do you see why it was important that you came along?
Claudia: Yeah. I can just picture you trying to get through here. "Oh help, bother, I'm stuck!"
Artie: All right, all right.
Claudia: "I'm so rumbly in my tummy."
Artie: Stop it.
Claudia: Silly old bear.
Artie: Enough.

Claudia: That's why it's a 24-hour stopwatch. Because Magellan was the first guy to sail all the way around the world.
Artie: So you actually paid attention in fifth-grade?
Claudia: Yes, now think back to your youth and try to remember what he said to you on deck the night he crossed the international dateline.
Artie: I never tire of those comments.
