Crichton is immediately attracted, and Aeryn finds herself fighting unfamiliar feelings of jealousy. Rygel is also uncomfortable, forced to confront his convict past.

D’Argo: What is another Peacekeeper ship doing in the uncharted territories?
Aeryn: I don’t know. Something’s wrong.
John: Yeah no kidding. Like shouldn’t we be doing warp 1000 by now? Think of how big the winner of this battle must be.


John: So what is it with the Zelbinion?
D’Argo: It is the most feared ship in the Peacekeeper Armada.
John: Yeah, well, clearly somebody didn’t get that message.


John: I can’t believe you lived on a ship like this. Your whole life.
Aeryn: When you told me endless tales of your home, you spoke of forests and rivers and valleys. Well I was thinking of walls not unlike these.
John: I’m sure it looks better with carpeting.


D’Argo: This ship is legendary. Even in my culture, it was thought invincible.
John: Yeah, well, just ask Leonardo DiCaprio. Even the big ones go down.


Aeryn: Someone has regenerated communications.
John: Recently? Or do you guys have like the best car batteries of all time?


Gilina: I can’t believe you’re not Sebacean.
John: Human. It’s kinda like Sebacean, but we haven’t conquered other worlds yet so we just kick the crap out of each other.


Gilina: Thank you for stopping her from killing me today.
John: Well, I try to save a life a day. Usually it’s my own.


John: It’s red wire, blue wire, red wire, blue wire, and at the last possible second, he cuts the wrong wire!
Gilina: And the bomb never goes off?
John: Nuh-uh!. He cuts the WRONG wire! That’s the whole point! Fifteen seconds later they’re running out of the building and everything blows all to hell!
Gilina: And you call this entertainment?
John: Yeah, well, you know… it replaced cock fighting.


John: Yeah. You know cosmic theory?
Gilina: Yeah, it’s something that intrigues me.
John: I got my doctorate in it.
Gilina: A doctorate? What is that?
John: It’s, uh, a couple of letters they add to the end of your name. Not much help out here though. Last textbook I read made a case for why you and all other forms of alien life didn’t exist.


John: They spit fire? How come nobody tells me this stuff? How come nobody tells me they spit fire! AERYN!


John: Hey.
Aeryn: A greeting I shall never understand.
John: It’s kinda all-purpose. Let’s see, let the other person decide what they wanna talk about.
Aeryn: What if they don’t want to talk?
John: Then they say ‘hey’ back.
Aeryn: Hey.
John: Well, now the first person that doesn’t wanna talk can be trumped if the other person realizes that they need to. Hey.
Aeryn: I hate being ambushed.
