Rodney is returning to Earth for his 2 weeks of leave and to attend a colleague's presentation on a scientific breakthrough. He's also managed to work up the gumption to ask Jennifer Keller if she will accompany him and she agrees. On Earth, they're attending a scientific conference hosted by Rodney's rival, Malcolm Tunney, against whom he has been competing for most of his life. When Tunney announces technology to solve global warming, McKay accuses him of stealing his ideas. Tunney decides to give his guests a live demonstration but when he finds he can't turn the devise off, he turns to McKay for help. The crisis also allows McKay and Jennifer to express their true feelings for one another.
