Quantum comms Enterprise for info. They don't really have any yet. Quantum tells him he'll meet them at the landing coordinates in an hour, because there's something he has to do first.
Deputy Ass Hat is staring creepily into the cell at Homespun. There's a banging at the door, and he turns away and buttons up his vest. Okay, what are we supposed to take away from that? He raped her? Quantum's the one banging on the door, and when Deputy Ass Hat opens it, Quantum says, "I was on my way outta town and I realized I forgot something." He slugs Deputy Ass Hat but good. Deputy Ass Hat goes down like an asshat, and Quantum grabs the keys and the asshat's gun. Homespun tries to play the whole "what are you doing?" game, but Quantum gets her out of the cell and drags Deputy Ass Hat into it. Quantum tells Homespun that she can go on the lam to other settlements who need readin', writin', and 'rithmatic. They leave.
