Synopsis: Crichton shoots through a wormhole to Earth and finds himself back home, seven months after he left. The original wormhole, it seems, has been open the whole time, and Earth has been fearfully waiting for aliens to invade via the yawning portal. Crichton, though reunited with his father, Jack, is treated with suspicion, but when D’Argo, Aeryn and Rygel arrive in a Transport Pod, he is forgotten in the storm of xenophobia. Though the imminent danger brings Aeryn and Crichton closer than they have ever been, Crichton discovers that his father is not what he seems…

Pilot: Crichton! Look at this!
John: Oh my God…
Rygel: What? It’s just a tiny blue planet. What are you getting so worked up about? It’s got no particle rings, no red moons –
Chiana: Totally unimpressive.
John: That’s Earth. That’s my home.


Man: Speaking in an African language
John: This is the 12th guy, Wilson. How many more you gonna roll in here before you believe these are translator microbes in my head and not some space virus?
Wilson: What did he say?
John: Well, I think he said… that until he gets some answers, he’s not gonna play any more.


John: What am I gonna find out? I mean- Look I been away for – what did you say? Seven months? I just wanna know what’s happened! Something since I’ve been gone. Who won the Superbowl Cobb?
Cobb: I don’t know.
John: I know you’re Australian, Cobb, but you gotta know who won the Superbowl! You know who Ty Cobb is? Cobb? No? How ’bout Babe Ruth? You know who Babe Ruth is?
Cobb: Some fat guy who played for the Yankees.
John: Good! Fat guy! At least you know something!


Soldier: F-16s are scrambling for a visual.
Wilson: Are they here for you?
John: What?
Wilson: Are they here to save you?
John: I don’t know…
Wilson: Who is it? Who is that?
John: Look, I can’t see wha-
Wilson: WHO IS IT?
John: Who’s on first, what’s on second – I DON’T KNOW. I CAN’T SEE ‘EM!


John: Wilson! We spent our lives waiting for this moment! We sent Voyager! We left damn greeting cards on the moon! And as soon as they get here – Look at what you’re doing!


John: Aeryn, pick it up! I wanna get out of this rain. This is the place.
Aeryn: Rain. That what you call this? I like it.
John: Aeryn!


Aeryn: So what’s this?
John: It’s beer. Alcohol. Trust me, it’s just what we need right now. Down the hatch.
Aeryn: Down the hatch.
John: You like it?
Aeryn: Yes.It’s like Fellip Nectar. A fellip’s a creature on Tarsus and they get the nectar from ..
John: Aeryn, please – Don’t tell me where it comes from – just drink the beer.


Ancient: Many of us hoped that Earth might be our welcoming place. If all people were like you maybe it could be. But they’re not. In your memory we saw millions of Wilson’s and Cobb’s. It also led us to a familiar conclusion.
John: Which was?
Ancient: That the highest life form on a planet is also the most destructive. Your humans would kill us.
John: So what will you do now?
Ancient: What we’ve done since before I was hatched. We continue searching for a home.
John: So will I.
