Today, on Farscape… “I… sick… I… I… Huaaargh” “Go on, go on, let it all out.” “Excuuuse.” “Oh no, that’s alright, we do that sort of thing all the time here on Moya. I just peed in the maintenance bay.” Moya stumbles upon a crippled warship, but it decides to take retaliation against her. With […]

Episode [2.08] – “Dream a Little Dream”

Today, on Farscape… “Moya wants to know, I want to know; if you stay, will you be able to save Zhaan?” “I think I may have a way. It’s chancy, and will require lashings of deception and trickery.” “Finally. You and I get to play to our strengths.” Fifteen solar days after Moya’s escape from […]

Episode [2.07] – “Home on the Remains”

Episode [2.04] – “Crackers Don’t Matter”

Today, on Farscape… “Why don’t you make another speech, you self-important deficient little man! All you ever do is talk! Your father was the hero, you know. He did things.

Episode [2.03] – “Taking the Stone”

Today, on Farscape… “Crichton, why I’m here, it’s not about you. In case you haven’t noticed, I’m not your kid, I’m not your sister, and I’m only your… your tralk, in your dreams. So please, please go away!” “I’m trying to help.” “I don’t want it, and I don’t need it. I like it here. […]
