After the credits, Jo and Mandle run into the lab to investigate the loud glass breaking sounds they heard. They find Carter covered in green glop. Mandle is furious while Jo is kind of amused, which is her reaction to most things. Mandle says Carter ruined his entire batch of "misty green." Carter says he didn't touch anything; the earthquake knocked the beakers over. This draws a quizzical look from Mandle and an amused one from Jo, as even though they were but fifty feet away, they didn't feel a thing.
Carter goes to Allison for a second opinion, but she says that one of the reasons why this site was chosen for GD was its perfect seismic record. There are no faults under Eureka, she claims. Thus, Carter must be crazy. Wow, Allison sure jumped to that conclusion pretty quickly. Perhaps the fact that Carter didn't see fit to change out of his mucus-encrusted uniform before going to GD helped. Allison chalks Carter's earthquake up to him breathing in some weird chemical fumes as they happen upon Eva, who isn't too concerned with the fact that Carter is covered in mucus when there are robot dog explosions to investigate. Carter has no intention of investigating anything of the sort, since he thinks Fifi's death was more funny than criminal. He calls the robot dogs toys, which both Allison and Eva take exception to. Allison because the robot dogs have somehow lead to scientific breakthroughs, and Eva because the dogs could sell for big bucks on the market. She has some potential investors coming to the show and wants to make sure the products they'll be looking at won't fall apart in their faces.
Eva gets a call and rudely walks away to answer it. Carter moans to Allison that this is a huge waste of his time. You know what isn't a waste of your time, Carter? Changing clothes when they get dirty. Come on now. Stark walks up and says he needs to talk to Carter about the seismic motion scan they ran to check on Carter's earthquake claim. Allison hates seismic motion scans so she leaves, and Carter starts filling Stark in on the details of his earthquake. Stark says he doesn't believe a word of Carter's earthquake story and only said he did to get Carter alone.
Even though Stark asks for a favor with condescending insults, he still gets Carter to do his bidding. The two men head down to the room that houses GD's computer core, which I'm happy to report is fueled by "logic diamond" processors and not, say, some stupid antiperspirant. Stark brags about GD's supercomputer, saying it's more powerful than every computer ever made put together. With that, the woman who apparently runs the place walks out and says it's nice to see Stark. Apparently, no one ever goes to the computer core unless there's a problem, so she's thrilled to get actual visitors. Oh, when will GD learn to stop depriving their scientists of human contact? They all seem to get isolated and bitter, and then they create something that almost destroys the town, either intentionally or not. Stark goes out to get Fargo, who has some clearance papers Stark needs, allowing Carter to ask the woman what we all want to know: how do you use diamonds in computers? The woman gives Carter a simple answer, correctly figuring out from his mucus-y uniform that he isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer: "diamonds can store data and transmit it super-fast." Carter says he didn't know that, to which the woman laughs slightly crazily and says no one knows about how awesome diamonds really are because they keep them all locked down in the computer core room.
