In his quarters, Rip watches a video message that his wife and son sent him. Miranda says that London is in chaos and wants to know if Rip is all right, wherever and whenever he is. Martin comes in and Rip quickly shuts off the message. The Time Master says that Vandal's trail has gone cold, and angrily insists that he's been looking. Rip immediately apologizes and admits that he's failing his family, and explains that Gideon's CPU hasn't been updated since he went rogue. Martin warns that Rip has been holed up for a week and their teammates are getting antsy...

Episode Quotes
Rip: I vowed to save my family but I'm failing them. Perhaps I'm not the Time Master they need.
Martin: You must be. You're the only one they have.

Miranda Coburn: Rip, you might want to grab hold of something.
Rip: Yes, I am! It's called a gun!

Rip: Unless you let us return to our ship, a man named Vandal Savage will destroy the entire world. Time Masters and pirates alike. For once, we're fighting on the same side.
Captain John Valor: That little slogan should come with its own slogan.

Martin: That'll teach you to mess with a nuclear physicist.

Rip: I'm sorry, Mr. Rory. But a serial arsonist was never part of my plan to stop Savage, much less one with the IQ of meat.

Kendra: Uh, what's your favorite color?
Atom: Don’t have one.
Kendra: Who doesn't have a favorite color?
Atom: It's kind of like having a favorite Beatle.
Kendra: No, everyone has a favorite Beatle.
Atom: Uh, not me. Wouldn't be fair to the other three.
