At the Powell home, Stephanie is making breakfast at superspeed as the family comes down. Daphne and JJ quickly duck out, saying that they have things to do for school. She tells them that they’ll all have dinner together that night. Jim is glad to have breakfast with her alone, until George calls to tell him that there are four escaped cons on the loose. Their leader is Austin Davies, who is fleeing through the college campus. As Davies steals a motorbike and drives through the buildings, Jim gets ahead of him and clothesline the ex-con, and then gets away before the police catch up...

Episode Quotes
JJ: I'm meeting Natalie for an early-morning cram session.
Daphne: And that's not an euphemism. They're actually studying.

Stephanie: Hello?
Katie: Hi, it's me--Katie. Although I didn't need to say "It's me," because I said my name right afterwards.

George: Oh, I get it. But in order to get them alone, you need a man on the inside.
Jim: Oh, no, it's too dangerous.
George: Hey, Bruce Willis would've never gotten out of there alive if he didn't have that black dude helping him. Jim, let me be your black dude.

Mr. Litchfield: And keep your eyes on your homework at all time.
Natalie Poston: But what if I've already completed my homework?
Mr. Litchfield: Then you can work on the Latin translation for "not my problem."

JJ: Four months ago, I was flunking out of school, and I thought I knew exactly how my life was gonna turn out. Then one day, everything changed. And I realized... like seeing something miraculous for the first time... I knew that anything is possible.

Katie: I don't even know what you can do.
The Watcher: What I can do doesn't matter. What matters is what I want to do. And that's be with you.
