(note: The Butterfly Effect is to non-linear systems what Daisyworld is to homeostasis, a grossly simplified example only.) Non-linear systems are incredibly robust. Take your heartbeat, for example. When someone hits you in the chest, your heart doesn't stop beating. This is because in a non-linear system, background noise might alter the specific outcome, but not the pattern of the system. It would take a great perterbation of your heart to stop it, like grabbing a powerline. To put it in simpler terms, despite the butterfly's wings being able to generate a hurricane in Florida, they will never start a blizzard in Ecuador, as that's too far outside the system norm.
Now this relates to history in that large scale events are roughly unchangable, but smaller events can vary wildly. For example, you couldn't stop WWII, but you could have stopped some specific person from dying in it, or changed the course of one battle. Isaac Asimov expands on this theory and it's rammifications in the Foundation Trilogy.
So theoretically, you could go back in time and save someone. It is merely a matter of ethics if you do not.
On another note, Dee Dee has a habit of running wild around dangerous equipment. I personally think she had it coming.

I have to stick up for him because I love him and Dexter. I think they would make a good team if they could get past their egos. Sorry to be the dissenting newbie but I had to throw in my two cents.
