[Paul tells Olivier that Beth is right back in her dark place]

Paul Dierden: She's right back in her dark place, Olivier. I stopped her from OD'ing on pills last night. She's quit the force, dumped her therapist. She has no one else.

Olivier Duval: She has you, to share in this crisis, like any other event. Don't interfere unless it's critical.

Paul Dierden: I need to know that I won't be blamed if she tries it again, if I can't stop her.

Olivier Duval: You done well for us, Paul. As long as your subject makes her own choices, there are no wrong decisions. Yes?

[Cosima sees Dr. Aldous Leekie for the first time as he gives a speech to what the Neolution is]

Dr. Aldous Leekie: Neolution... A philosophy of today for tomorrow, rooted in our past, in the evolution of the human organism. But before we go to the future, let me take you back 3,000 years, to the great Greek philosopher Plato and his twilight years.

Dr. Aldous Leekie: [Leekie in a hoarse voice as the audience laughs] Poor old Plato was going blind... Going lame, and losing his hearing!

Dr. Aldous Leekie: Now, imagine if he knew we could correct his sight, restore his hearing, and replace his ailing body parts with titanium ones. Plato would've thought we were gods! But we're not, we're just fundamentally flawed human beings.

Dr. Aldous Leekie: [Leekie sees Cosima in the audience] Your glasses, for example, make you somewhat, um, platonic. But within the very near future, I'll be able to offer you the ability to see into a spectrum never before seen by the naked eye... infrared, x-rays, ultraviolet. Are you interested?

Cosima Niehaus: [Cosima makes a joke] Maybe I'll just start with basic Lasik.

Dr. Aldous Leekie: [as the audience laughs] And so you should. That's making an evolutionary choice. Neolution gives us the opportunity at a self-directed evolution and I believe that's not only a choice, but a human right.
