Synopsis: A false distress signal brings Moya to the home of a young Delvian Priestess, Tahleen, who sent out the signal in order to summon Zhaan. While the crew is made welcome, Zhaan is puzzled by Tahleen’s motivations; it seems the young but powerful Delvian wants to join in ‘Unity’ with Zhaan in order to curb her dark side. In the process, Zhaan is forced to confront her own insidious past, and when the Unity goes horribly wrong, Crichton must come to Zhaan’s aid, and risk his very sanity to save her.

D’Argo: Pi-LOT!
Pilot: I have no answer as yet.
John: A little long for a starburst don’t you think?
Rygel: Hail, Prince of the Obvious.

Rygel: I like my wives pregnant and my ships cold to the touch. That way my feet stay warm and my slumber is uninterrupted.
John: Wives, plural? Big fella!
Rygel: I was just dreaming about my final mating session when our gestating goliath decided she needed some exercise.

John: That’s my underwear.
Aeryn: What does this say?
John: Calvin.
Aeryn: Then they’re not yours.

John: Delvian coup d’etat. Didn’t think you people had it in you.

John: So what are you supposed to do? Serve as the poster child for the revolution?

Zhaan: As we train for purity, Delvians often become vulnerable to their own dark impulses. Should it surface, they succumb as if to an infection.
John: Is that what happened to our man Pa’u Loony Tunes?

Aeryn: Any more from Crichton?
D’Argo: He says they want Zhaan to participate in some ceremonial mating.
Aeryn: This is such a bad combination. I never should have left them. Zhaan distracted. Crichton confused…
D’Argo: Crichton is always confused.

John: The part of “Tahleen” in tonight’s Unity will be played by John Crichton.

John: BUUURR-buk-buk-buk… Your translator microbes handle that one?

Zhaan: Although… I must admit – I have always wondered what could possibly go on in there…
John: Not a lot. I’m a guy.

John: Oh, my. What is that?
Zhaan: Unity.
John: It’s like… Disney on acid! Like ten years of really great sex all at the same moment.
