In the scene, Claire Bennet is at the dinner table with her family. To get out of a family event to sneak off to see her boyfriend she comes up with the following excuse:
Claire: "I can't. I have to go to the library for a research paper"
Lyle (her brother, sitting on the other side of the table): "The Library? Have you ever heard of the Internet?"
Claire: "Actually, the research paper is on libraries and how in the digital age they are increasingly becoming obsolete for our generation"
