As Okabe and Kurisu arrive home with the IBN-5100, Suzuha seems to be shocked when she sees Kurisu. While Okabe gathers some needed parts for the computer, he runs into Suzuha again, who warns him to be cautious of Kurisu. After Daru gets the IBN-5100 working, he, Okabe and Kurisu begin deciphering SERN's reports. They discover that SERN had indeed been conducting human experiments on time travel, succeeding in transporting people to the past but also causing them the jellification Okabe had observed on the bananas. With this knowledge, Okabe becomes determined to perfect his Mobile Microwave.
