A way around this is to have events that occur at a different time, set up
events that occur in the Kats' present. A tool, map, book, just about anything
can be critical to the resolution of the problem and provide the key to the
resolution. This type of solution has been used before in some of the episodes,
but it can also be tied in tighter.
