Meanwhile, Captain Ali speaks to Chan and wants him to teach her botany, which at first he is not pleased with.

He tells her an idea of the ability to shake hands with people across the world using booths and mannequins. Edison claims she likes his vision and that he will change the world.

Tony learns off Edison’s publicist Hannah that the “skinny” fuel may not work when she says Edison creates hundreds of projects so it doesn’t look as bad if only one of them work.
