The vortex deposits Quinn and Rembrandt inside a building, and Colin and Maggie outside. Though neither duo can hear the other through the glass separating them, Quinn signals that he and Rembrandt will join them outside. While waiting, Maggie and Colin witness Rick trying to break into the building, but a gang of scavengers set upon him, led by the vicious Jack. The two Sliders join the fray as a guard inside the building confronts Quinn and Rembrandt. He searches them, and finding no computer equipment on them, declares them to be trespassing "Offliners," until Joanne happens upon them, and mistakes Quinn as Rick, whom she was supposed to meet. The guard steps away, and Joanne leads the two away.
