Synopsis: The crew, starving and desperate, head for a mining colony within a giant Budong carcass. When they arrive, they must contend with B’Sogg, the camp’s overlord. Each of the crew goes to work in different ways to obtain necessary supplies. When a miner is attacked and killed by the Keedva, a vicious creature that roams the mining tunnels, Crichton soon discovers that B’Sogg, the colony’s self-styled Keedva slayer, is in fact controlling the creature. B’Sogg unleashes the Keedva on an unarmed Crichton, leaving him to kill or be killed.
John: (Sneezes) Aeryn: What’s the matter with you? John: I don’t know- I don’t know. I hope its not a cold, ‘cos I’m sure not gonna get any chicken soup on a Budong. Chiana: Look! I don’t know what cheeken zoop is okay? But there’s plenty of other food at the mining camp!
John: And they’re going to welcome the prodigal daughter home with a Thanksgiving meal.
Aeryn: What’s that appalling smell? John: Breakfast. Aeryn: Dentics! You can’t eat dentics! John: Fried dentics. You can eat anything as long as it’s fried. Aeryn: I’ll pass! John: Suit yourself Jenny Craig, but I’m hungry.
John: Aeryn, we are out of supplies. We’re gonna become the Donner Party of the uncharted territories if we don’t get some food soon.
B’Soog: You want food? Hand over your weapons. D’Argo: No. B’Soog: Then stay hungry! John: Here y’are Marshall.
Rygel: This is your grand gesture of generosity? Fungus! Mold! Lichens! EEEYECH!! What’s that you’re eating? B’Soog: Meat. Rygel: Why didn’t I get any meat? B’Soog: If you want meat – you’ve got to pay for it. So if what I’ve given you isn’t to your liking- Rygel: No no no no! John: You can ignore the little green eating machine. We appreciate what you’ve done for us.
B’Soog: Deemo. Do you play? Rygel: I’m about to. John: We’re here for Zhaan, Maverick, not games.
D’Argo: Maybe we should have fried this. John: Well, it ain’t lobster, but it’ll keep Zhaan alive. Keep an eye on the children till I get back.
John: Hey Blue! Delivery! It ain’t exactly Dominos, but it got here in less than 30 minutes.
John: Shut your yap and give it more gas! Rygel: There is no more gas!
John: Okay, no more Captain Kirk chit-chat.
Zhaan: Mm – it’s wonderful! John: Yah. Carolina Style Keedva. Best BBQ this side of a Budong. Zhaan: Think you John. For everything. John: My pleasure. Y’all dig in now.
