Marshall's Garage of Geekiness. Marshall's digging through some of his geek trash when Rachel enters and tells him that Dixon's waiting for them. Marshall's all, yeah, uh, I'm looking for something you know what an audio coupler is? "Yeah, like from WarGames," says Rachel. Hee. One of the best eighties movies EVER. Marshall's all, uh, you know WarGames? Rachel's all, uh, yeah, it's only like, my second favorite movie EVER. Marshall's all, no WAY. Don't tell anyone, but it's what inspired me to hack into the Pentagon for the first time. Rachel's intrigued. "How'd you get in?" she asks. "I, uh, went in through the electrical system," says Marshall. He geek-speaks about how he sweet-talked some woman named "Ina" to let him in and Rachel says, "I went straight in through the sewer controls." Heh. Marshall? You have met your match. And it has boobs. "Really?" he says. "That's smart and a lot easier " Heh.
Rachel asks if they're hacking into the storage facility's network in order to find out where the Desantis files are stored and Marshall says they are. Rachel says that if they're going in via RF, then the network must be terminal. "Nah, it's a closed loop," says Marshall. I have no idea what they're talking about. And, oddly, I think that Rachel Gibson and Kevin Weisman don't either. Marshall finally finds what he's looking for and tosses it to Rachel. She takes it and walks out.
San Francisco. Dix and Rachel are in the Appleseed Van, getting tech instruction from Marshall. He's showing them "Charlotte," his little robot spider that has a CT scan camera imbedded in its belly. It takes images layer by layer, which Marshall demonstrates by shooting Dixon's face and then bringing the images up on his monitor. Dixon's face shows up, then the layers peel away, and we see the skeleton beneath. Pretty fucking cool. Charlotte will allow them to take images of the Desantis files without ever having to remove them from their storage container. Niiiiiiiice.
