Catherine Weaver tells Ellison that Dr. Sherman had been consulting on an AI project named Babylon in the building basement. I love that song. She says that during the blackout the AI program reserved generator power for itself and cut off power to the other building's systems, thus causing the death of Dr. Sherman. Ellison asks if the AI program controls the building and she says blankly that he makes it sounds like a monster movie. She explains that the AI has access to the power supply in order to facilitate its growth. OK, that's scary. Ellison wonders if growing involves allowing the agonizing death of a man and I'm making a guess that he's being...rhetorical? She replies that she doesn't know what its intentions were and Ellison says that does sound like a monster movie. "Which is why we need to find out," she says. OK, Shirley Garbage needs to do some jumping jacks before her scenes or something. She looks good, but she is flat.
Sarah and Cameron arrive at Dakara as some Air Force guys are leaving. Alex Akagi introduces himself to "Sarah Gale." As they sit down in the boardroom, Alex explains that they were the victims of industrial espionage the night before...someone stole their drives. Oops! He says that there is a lot of money in AI. He's not worried about someone using the software, because his son Xander, who designed the software, created a security feature that will make the program attack. The Air Force is looking to buy the software and he says they've been interested in AI since as "far back as the 80's." Sarah says it's odd to hear the 80's referred to as "far back." Indeed. He asks her if she likes music, because that's how he marks the decades. For him, the 80's will always be Duran Duran. Yeah, forget about the end of the Cold War, it's all about "Girls On Film." Oh, Sarah loves Duran Duran too. She used to go dancing, gee, she misses dancing. She used to dress up. What a weird little monologue. It's like Annie Sullivan's rats monologue in The Miracle Worker. Cameron laughs and says that hair is the hardest part to get right. Everybody just kind of stares at her.
