Harm and Meg investigate the theft of stolen missiles at the Seatac Naval Base. While interrogating Quinn, the thief, a prison breakout takes place and Lt. Austin is taken hostage. Contrary to the Major in charge, Lt. Rabb thinks that this is a well-planned breakout with a big goal. And it seems the goal is even bigger than ever thought. Locations: Seatac Island Naval Base and areamoreless

Lt. (jg) Meg Austin

PO Peter Quinn
Lt. Caitlin 'Kate' Pike
Goof: When she's pulled off the boat, Meg is wearing her shoes (~32:35). She's pulled back on the boat barefoot having lost her shoes in the water (~33:11). Later on her captor has shoes for her to wear as she gets off the boat (~35:35) Where'd he get them?
Goof: The countdown on the SADM reads 2000 for 20 minutes and 0020 for 20 seconds but it also shows numbers like 1285 which should be impossible.
Lt. Kate Pike and Lt. Meg Austin have a minor disagreement about the proper title of the visitor's registration form for the brig.
At the start of the episode, Kate believes the forms are called "dash seven-seven-four-oh-ones"; Meg counters this by saying she believes they are called "dash seven-seven-five-oh-ones".
The dispute comes to a head at the climax of the episode when Meg is trying to disarm a SADM using a code entered by Gunny Gentry. Since the Gunny had perversely tormented Meg by telling her the 5-digit code he picked "has a seven in it", Meg, Harm and Kate desperately try to choose a string of numbers with a seven in it that Gunny might have used on a regular basis.
Meg thinks about the visitor's registration form, and Kate once again states that they're 77401, and Meg says they're 501s. Harm just yells for Meg to try them both.
When she does, the countdown finally stops at 7 seconds. "It's disarmed," Meg says with relief. If we were paying attention to the start of the episode, we would remember which one was right: Gunnery Sgt. Gentry confirms that Meg is correct when she first enters to see Petty Officer Quinn, who says, "Do you have your -77501s, ma'am?"
Meg: We're looking for a five digit code with a seven.
Harm: How much time?
Meg: Seven minutes. Funny huh?
Kate and Harm: No!
Kate: You didn't tell her?
Harm: Must have slipped my mind.
Meg: Happens a lot.
Kate: I had the same problem with him.
Kate: So, how are you and Meg getting along?
Harm: She has this thing about trying to prove she's as good as any male officer.
Kate: Don't we all.
Harm: So why aren't you handling this Quinn defense?
Kate: Believe me, I wanted to. But Major Aspinal's taken over the Provost Marshal's Office here, and he's one by-the-book Marine.
Harm: Nothing wrong with that.
Kate: Listen to you! You threw away the book when you were 16.
Harm: Not true. I just read a different book.
Kate: Admiral Brovo's last act before going into exile was to transfer me to CINPAC. I figured Hawaii, here I come! But the plane stopped in Seattle. So, I stowed the bikini and bought mittens.
Harm: I'd love to see you in them.
Kate: My mittens?
Harm: Mmm-hmm. Just your mittens.
(Lt. Meg Austin arrives at the Brig to interview Petty Officer Quinn. While walking past, two other prisoners (Davis and Jessie) ogle her and make lewd remarks. She ignores them and after having a look at Quinn as he reclines on his cot, she heads to the interview room.)
Davis: Oooh! She likes you, Quinn.
Jessie: We didn't get no woman officer defendin' us.
Quinn: You're too pretty for a female lawyer, Jessie. And Davis is too horny.
Jessie: What's that make you?
Quinn: Well, I'm between pretty and horny. Guess that makes me pretty horny.
Gunnery Sgt. Gentry: This clears 2 officers, Ma'am.
Meg: My partner will be along shortly.
Gunnery Sgt. Gentry: Good cause I wouldn't want you going in there alone.
Meg: And why's that, Gunnery Sgt... Gentry?
Gunnery Sgt. Gentry: You're a female, Ma'am.
Meg: That doesn't mean that I'm incapable of interviewing prisoners by myself.
Meg: What's the rush?
Meg: Speed limits 55. You've been doing 70 since we got off the ferry.
Harm: Yeah, after mach 1 I never could go back to 55.
Harm: There is always a wild card, Kate. If you don't learn that at Spook school, you should have at Harvard Law.
