- "Pleased to meet you. Yow! Static electricity out here's no joke."
- ―Tom to Carol Danvers
One day, Tom knocked on the door of the Rambeau Residence to ask if he could take a closer look at the Quadjet. To his surprise, Carol Danvers opened the door and despite his friendly approach and good manners, she assumed that he was an impostor and was very cold towards him. Danvers told him that his trickery didn't fool her and closed the door but not before Rambeau asked him to return later.
