Back to the yacht in Myrtle Beach. Dr. Fugitive finds a small can with a pull-tab and noisily sucks down whatever was in it. It's pretty loud and gross, because they decided putting a mic in the can was a really good idea. As he snarfs, we hear Alex say, "That is so disgusting!"
And we're back in Wisconsin, where Joss-Sara and Lt. Dad are kissing. Wow. They made us think Alex was Actually Talking To Dr. Fugitive. If that ploy was any cleverer, you could give it a tail and call it a fox. Lt. Dad takes the life-preserver from Alex, saying, "Okay, now you can take this off." I see -- we are supposed to note his extreme fear of having loved ones near water. They get into an SUV, and Alex asks if they are going back to the hotel. Joss-Sara tells her they are going to dinner first. "Aren't you hungry?" she asks her stepdaughter. "I wanted to Instant Message [AOL product placement #1] Lisa before she goes to the Puff Daddy concert," Alex says, coming dangerously close to a whine. Shades of my little sister's umbilical attachment to her modem. Lt. Dad and Joss-Sara exchange a look, which Alex catches. The Generation Y2K kid trots out some overused but typical banter about her Dad and Joss-Sara using carrier pigeons in their day but, hello, she's a product of the cyber boom, so lay off. Lt. Dad laughs and shows his age by saying he's got a "Pentium III, seven hundred mega-whatever," and that he uses it every day at work. Alex prisses that she supposes he knows all about "DrRichardKimble.com." That gets her Dad's attention. Alex explains to the rest of us who didn't immediately go to the site when we saw the name of this episode, "All the people who think that he's innocent, they write in. They even raise money for Kimble's defense fund." Lt. Dad says he knows about the site, and he's monitored it enough to know that the people on it are a bunch of fools. Alex argues that innocent people get wrongly convicted all the time. Joss-Sara tells them to quit talking about it and to take her to dinner. Lt. Dad starts the car.
