Synopsis: Still on the run from Crais, Moya responds to a distress call and lands on a highly vegetated asteroid. The crew saves a helpless alien, M’Lee, from a formidable monster, Br’Nee, and in the struggle their transportation is disabled. Stranded for the moment, the crew discovers that Br’Nee was in fact part of a research team that was annihilated by the ‘bone eater’ M’Lee. When Zhaan then disappears, it seems there are even darker truths to be revealed.
Rygel: You’re not seriously considering going down there are you? For goodness sake didn’t you see that thing? D’Argo: You do not have to go down there Your Flatulence.
John: One, two, three, four to beam down Pilot.
John: Hey – don’t forget happy campers – the girl on the distress signal said creeeatuuure.
D’Argo: Zhaan. Let me explain to you what’s going on inside my nose right now. There’s large pieces of green mucus and gunk- John: D’Argo! D’Argo – nononono. Stop it with the Luxan poetry. There’s some healthy-sounding sinuses.
John: All right. One quick trip to the pharmacy coming up. Out the door. Turn left at the creature.
John: M’Lee. Do NOT go squirrelly on me here, all right?
John: That is a very impressive machine. My aunt had one. C’mon Zhaan let’s go.
John: M’Lee? M’Lee take it outside! Us southern boys don’t make good eatin’. Not without a fight.
John: What? That you’re going to devour our bones if you get the chance? M’Lee: He didn’t tell you all of it. I NEED you to know the truth! John: Is that before or after I supply your daily recommended allowance of calcium?
John: Swamp thing here ain’t the Mr Rogers scientist we thought he was!
John: M’Lee threw you a curve. She survived.
Zhaan: I cannot condone what his people did, but for all this unparalleled flora to flourish, it may not be entirely unreasonable to- John: To murder sentient beings in order to save a few stinking plants? Zhaan: How animal-centric of you John. John: Sorry, Zhaan. I forgot. You’re a- Zhaan: I am a stinking plant.
John: M’Lee! Where are you, you little lying sack of spite?
John: She has a name. It’s Zhaan. Br’Nee: She is not dead. Nor will any harm come to her. John: She’s in a test tube, Jack.
Zhaan: There is much cruelty in the universe. John: Yeah, we seem to have a treasure map to it. Bon appetite.
