Joe Rossi: What is C84?
Larry Riesen: Joe, you have to understand something. The people who work with these chemicals are pretty bright.
Joe Rossi: Sure.
Larry Riesen: I mean, a lot of ingenuity and more hard work then you can imagine went into figuring most of that stuff out. Why, in just a few years our insight into the world at the molecular level has deepened incredibly.
Joe Rossi: I know, it's your filling me in that's taking all the time.
Lou Grant: Anything happen while I was at lunch?
Art Donovan: Billie called. She couldn't really talk, but she gave me the name of a restaurant half way between here and Altamira where you can meet tonight
[hands Lou a note]
Lou Grant: Oh yeah?
[reading the note]
Lou Grant: John Wong Garcia's Kitchen. Fish. A place named John Wong Garcia's in the middle of the desert serves fish?
Art Donovan: No, they serve Chinese-Mexican food. I have to go by Billie's apartment tonight to feed her fish.
Teri Wilk: [Rossi just got directions and left] Not even a thank you! Typical reporter.
Billie Newman: [Billie is under cover working at the plant] What do you mean? Maybe he's just... not a polite guy.
Teri Wilk: Nah, reporters are the lowest. My dad told me. Everybody knows it. They're all pushy and grubby. All they care about is getting their story.
Billie Newman: [a bit self-concious] The eh... lead is kind of silly...
Billie Newman: But then, the story is also kind of...
Lou Grant: I like the lead.
Billie Newman: [surprised and relieved] Good!
Lou Grant: It's catchy. Bubbles suddenly appearing in people's backyards.
Billie Newman: There's only the one bubble.
Lou Grant: How do we know? What are bubbles like?
Art Donovan: Do they talk to each other?
