Rose lets Derek and the gang know that the technician for the Brain-Saving Machine is in Spokane, which he explains, for those of us not familiar with Northwest American geography, is five hours away. He asks Rose if she told him he's stuck with a scope in someone's brain and she answers, "Yes. The tech is still in Spokane." It's good to see that someone recognizes that no matter how wavy and thick his hair, Derek can't actually bend space and time. (Yet.) She asks if he can pull out the scope and just do a full craniotomy, but he says he can't, and has the intern next to him explain that pulling out the scope without navigation could damage the brain tissue. Which, if Rose has been on 38 of Derek's surgeries, she should have been able to figure out on her own. He also adds that leaving the probe in could cause swelling, and Derek congratulates the intern and asks his name. On a reflex he introduces himself as "Two" and then remembers he has a real name, Steve. Derek sends him to make an announcement that they need a computer tech to the whole hospital.
As he trots off, Rose offers that she had three semesters of computer science in college and might be able to fix it. The only technician for this super-specialized, delicate piece of machinery might be on the other side of the state, but thank God for basic computer knowledge, because that will totally substitute easily. She offers to try and look at it; = Derek evenly replies that he'd feel better about that if her voice weren't shaking. She tells him, "My voice shakes when I'm nervous, I'm an imperfect person, but it doesn't mean I can't fix the computer." He asks her what school she went to and when she tells him it was Santa Cruz, he points out that it's a party school. I'd like to point out that even if she wasn't a partier, given her age she probably went there when they didn't actually give out grades, so all we would know is that she presumably passed her computer science classes, and nothing more specific. But to be fair, my sister went there and has gone leaps and bounds further with her education than I did with mine, so I'll lay off being a smart-ass in her honor and assume that those three semesters Rose took were of the most advanced and phenomenal computer science class in the country so that she can fix the Brain-Saving Machine. Derek takes a quick poll to see if anyone else in the room can beat it, and since no one can, he tells her to give it a shot.
