Jess: I-I don't want to do this anymore, dad. Can't we just wait here for another rescue?
Dr. Harding: That's what we're going to do. But first we have to call for that other rescue.
Jess: What if goes just as bad as the first one?
Dr. Harding: Hey. Look at me. We'll get through this. What do I always say about the glass of water being half full or half empty?
Jess and Dr. Harding: "Hey, I ordered a beer!"
Dr. Harding: That's my girl. I'll be over by the info desk, okay?
Jess: Yeah, Dad.
Dr. Harding: Information. Sure could use some now. Oh good, instructions. Insert Operator's key into key slot. Okay, et cetera, et cetera, code expires in 24 hours. Morning operations reset procedure. Turn key counter-clockwise to "input" notch and hold for three seconds. Keypad will reset and beep three times. Turn key clockwise to "reset". Enter previous code then new code. Ah, that's easy enough. Huh. Very clever. It looks like they're using numbers from the dates from the Paleozoic era as daily keycodes. Okay. So the plaque for the Paleozoic era preceded the oldest period at the display. Maybe the sequence doesn't start at the beginning of the week. Today is Saturday. I need Friday's code. There's enough here for me to deduce the order. If I can just recall the order of the display. Oh, what is that mnemonic...? Camels often sit down carefully, perhaps their...yada, yada, yada...

Jess: Yeah, Dad.
Dr. Harding: Permian? Sounds right. Okay. Best guess. Turn key to "input", hold for three seconds, turn to "reset", then enter old code followed by a new code. Input, hold, reset, code. This is my best guess. I'll try it at the elevator. Nine, two, five, one. Alright! New code-- let's keep it simple.
Nima: Hey! Don't open that! Are you crazy? Someone will see!
Jess: See what?
Nima: Dammit, you careless idiot.
Jess: Uh. What was that thing? Some kind of spy gear?
Yoder: Yeah. That's right. Top secret. In fact, if you tell anyone about it, I'll have to kill ya.
Nima: You won't lay a finger on her.
Yoder: I was just kidding around.
Dr. Harding: Everyone! I got the elevator working.
Yoder: About time.
Dr. Harding: What's going on here?
Yoder: Nothing. vWe're all cool. Aw, jeeze- get over it! Let's go! We don't got all day.
