"The Tomorrow People: The Medusa Strain: Part 2 (#1.7)" (1973)
Peter: You say you're from the twentieth century on Earth. I just don't believe you.
Carol: You learned history?
Peter: Of course. The study of the past is my job.
Carol: You've never heard of The Tomorrow People?
Peter: No. Wait a minute. The first telepaths called themselves that.
Carol: Well, why are you so surprised?
Peter: But the records show that The Tomorrow People didn't start to emerge until the twenty-first century.
Carol: Of course the records don't show us. Really, we have to keep our existence secret, otherwise the homo sapiens - saps - would just wipe us out.
Peter: Yes. You're part of the underground movement, one of the very first. You stayed in hiding until the Great Emergence.
Carol: If you say so.
Peter: You're one of our remote ancestors. For all we know, you may be the mother of an entire line of Tomorrow People. If you're harmed in any way, thousands... perhaps millions of our people will simply never have existed. The whole time patterns will be upset.

Carol: But why do the Time Lanes need guardians?
Peter: Well, when they were first discovered, people kept plaunting back in time, changing history. There was chaos, so some sort of order had be enforced.
