In Don't Stop Believin', during speed dating, Hugh meets Ellie, and while she introduces herself, he kisses her hand as a greeting. She tells him that she is in her first year for Journalism, and she is a writer for The Core. He calls her cute, and then recognizes The Core. He asks her if they have Mac or Linux computers, which causes her to think for a moment and make a confused face. Unimpressed, Ellie clearly gave up.
