As Arturo (John Rhys-Davies) listens to radio broadcasts from the dying world, Quinn (Jerry O'Connell) slides into the military base's lab with an unconscious Maggie (Kari Wuhrer) in his arms -- and the Slider's home coordinates recorded in the timer. In the infirmary, Dr. Jensen (Mark Kiely) confronts Quinn, jealous of his wife's feelings toward Quinn. A nurse interrupts, telling them Maggie could have died if Quinn had not intervened. The other Sliders show up, excited about the news that they can go home now. Quinn tells them that they must wait until they have finished the sliding device he promised in order to save some of these people. An argument erupts, with Rembrandt (Cleavant Derricks) accusing Quinn of never thinking of the rest of the group.
