Synopsis: Distraught at the death of her brother Nerri, Chiana blasts down to a royal cemetery planet and joins a gang of nihilistic young aliens. Crichton, Aeryn and Rygel fly down to the planet to try to talk Chiana into coming back to Moya, but she insists on taking part in a potentially deadly local ritual called “Taking the Stone”, a leap into a chasm using sound waves to slow the fall. Crichton tries to intercede, but must realize that this new, aberrant behaviour is something Chiana has to work through herself.
Chiana: Crichton. What are you breaking now? John: I’m not breaking anything. I’m trying to see how our “quote-unquote” navigation system “quote-unquote” works.
John: John: So this entire planet’s covered in graves? Rygel: It’s a Royal Cemetery Planet. Haven’t you ever seen one? John: Nope. CHIANA! Rygel: Well, where did you bury your leaders on Erp? John: Just underground. Chiana! Rygel: Next to where you lived? That’s disgusting! BbBbBbleeeghgh!
John: Be nice. Aeryn: I’m not good at nice. John: Just don’t shoot her.
John: Chiana, you realize that nobody here has a clue? They’re nothing but stoned monkeys who jump off a cliff!
John: Great! That’s just great Aeryn. You know, I hope if I ever decide to jump in front of a bus, you’re not the only one
John: Yo! Bob! Marley – you seen Molnon?
Aeryn: Wh-what happened to you? John: I had a pissing contest with Molnon. I won. I think. Aeryn: Doesn’t look like it.
Aeryn: Wha – uh- where are you going? John: To see if this – Excedrin headache was worth it.
John: Aeryn! What the hell is wrong with you? You are the pin-up girl for frontal assault! You should be dragging her back to the ship yourself!
John: Well, let’s get her on the dog and bone. Aeryn: Whatever that means, Crichton.
John: Yes, and somebody has to do the bungee without the rope, except this time it’s our friend jumping.
