Season 4 Episode 13
A vortex appears and releases Quinn, then reappears elsewhere to drop off Colin, then leaves Rembrandt and Maggie dangling from a window-washing unit hundreds of feet above ground. The two climb to safety, and even see Colin wandering the street, far below -- but lose track of him, once they reach the ground. Quinn, meanwhile, heads for the hotel, hoping to meet the others in the three hours they have before the next slide. On the way, he notes a society mindlessly devoted to the only show on television: "Lipschitz Live,": a combination newscast/talk show, hosted by the irrepressible Barry Lipschitz. At the hotel, Quinn does not find his friends, but does note that two corporations are hosting some sort of reception there. He waits in the bar, hoping the others will soon arrive. Maggie and Rembrandt likewise head to the hotel, but find, as Quinn did, that there are no vacancies. They do discover, however, that a Colin Mallory has checked in, so they sneak into his room -- and find clothing and liquor bottles strewn about the suite. Meanwhile, Colin arrives at the hotel, and sees Quinn waiting in the bar. As he heads to his brother, he is grabbed by two thugs who drag him away; Quinn does not notice.
