Back at Café Diem, the storycatchers have given Zoe a reason to feel inadequate. She can't come up with any good memories. Tess says she's over-thinking it, but Zoe whines that Tess can say that because she has three Ph.Ds. Zoe, meanwhile, isn't even a scientist. But she does have genius IQ so I'm not sure what she's complaining about. Obviously she'll be able to make her mark in the future. Tess says Vince isn't a scientist either, and she's sure he has a "unique perspective" on Eureka. Way to call Vince stupid, Tess. Also, in your face because Vince quickly says he does have a Ph.D. In molecular gastronomy. Which, as it turns out, isn't just about using Xanthan gum on Top Chef, but is a real science with real applications. Anyway, it's time for Vince to share his memories with us. Hooray! It's from Season 3! Remember this? Oh, and the part where Carter squirts mustard at Vince and he says "really?" is just as awesome now as it was then. Back in the present, Tess asks if that's really the story Vince wants to preserve for the rest of time. Well, maybe he'd have something better if his screentime didn't get cut for new characters like you, Tess. "Beats the hell out of a book of recipes," Vince shrugs. Jo just laughs politely, like she's been doing all episode.
Carter finds Dr. Ash in the lagoon hallway. She can't find her entire lab, which makes sense when you consider the fact that it looks drastically different now than it did before Boobay blew it up. Ash has similar difficulty remembering her experiment and her partner, although she does remember what a storycatcher is, as Carter takes a second to point out that she has one in her pocket. Obviously, the storycatchers are the cause of this memory loss thing. Way to go, Tess. Way to plug into people's brains and then scramble them for the sake of a stupid time capsule. That's worth it.
Carter meets Allison in her office even though they had only ninety minutes to vacate GD before and now enough time has gone by for Henry to check Boobay and Ash out at the off-site infirmary and tell Allison they're suffering from selective memory loss. I would have left the building by now and conducted my business elsewhere, but not Allison and Carter! Allison suggests some reasons for Ash and Boobay to have the same memory problems at the same time (none of which are the memory devices in their pockets, so whatever) as Kinison walks in and says all the humans are out of GD, as he found Fargo in Tess's lab and told him to leave. He didn't then check to make sure Fargo left, but whatever. It's not like it's that important to be thorough with this or anything. Allison wonders what Fargo could possibly be doing in Tess's lab, but Carter has an idea. He tells Kinison to halt the sonic cleaning while he and Allison go down to Tess's lab.
