Lexx 2.03 Lyekka
(written by Paul Donovan, Lex Gigeroff)
(Pods which look like horse chestnuts with tails swim through
space towards the Lexx. One gets inside, and flies through the galley, into the
cryochamber. It goes past Kai's cryopod, then comes back and scans him. 790 is
on the floor, mourning by Zev's jar. Tears run down the inside of his eye
790: All night by the dead Zev
All night by dead Zev I
If only my tears could be real
I would rust myself away
(The pod scans 790, then moves onto Stan's bedchamber. It scans
Stan, who is dreaming. All we can see of his dream is a girl)
You want me to just - you want me to just - say it?
GIRL: Yeah, go ahead. Say
what you're thinking
STAN: Er - the thing is, Lyekka, no-one really notices
me much, and you're popular, even though some people say bad things about you,
but you're different from those other girls, you're nicer. So, I was wondering
if maybe somehow, you might, ummm -
GIRL: You can say it, Stanley
Erm - consider going to the dance with me?
GIRL: Me? Go to the dance with
you, Stanley Tweedle?
STAN: Yeah - could be fun
(She starts to
laugh at Stan. The sky behind her goes stormy, and more laughter can be
GIRL: Girls, you gotta hear this - he wants to go to the
dance with me!
STAN: Just - but -
(The pod moves onto the bridge
and hovers near the ceiling. It unfurls long tendrils from its base. Something
drops out of it, and moves along the passageway to Stan's bed. Stan is woken by
STAN: What was that? Who's there?
(A girl walks
into view. She is naked, but covered with strategically placed slime. She looks
like the girl in Stan's dream)
LYEKKA: Lyekka -
LYEKKA: I'd like to dance with you
This is strange
(Stan gets out of bed)
STAN: I was just
dreaming about you - and now, here you are, but that was such a long time
LYEKKA: Maybe I am the woman of your dreams
STAN: Maybe. Once you
were, for while
(He looks at her, and realises she is smooth around
STAN: How did you get here?
LYEKKA: I came from your
STAN: I don't understand
LYEKKA: (laughs) I don't
understand either - oops
(She realises something is wrong. Blue light
crackles, making alterations to her form - now she is wearing a dress, and has a
STAN: I'd better go wake up Kai
picks up his uniform and leaves. Lyekka follows him)
(Elsewhere, a space
capsule leaves a little brown planet. There are three astronauts crammed inside
- Moss, Bando and Boosh)
MC: Eagle 5, this is Mission Control. We're
all green lights down here. Whenever you're ready, captain
starts to read a speech from a leaflet)
MOSS: For generations, we
have dreamed of being able to see into space beyond the Great Ion Veil. Today,
the first men from our small planet have begun to travel beyond that Great Ion
Cloud that shrouds our small planet in silence and isolation and er, we will, we
(A helmet floats by - he moves it, but his leaflet floats
MOSS: - er, we will begin to see what, er, wondrous and great
MC: We're all ears, captain
MOSS: So, er, we the crew of the
Eagle 5, if we do encounter, make first contact with alien beings, it is a
friendship greeting from the children of our small but great planet of
MC: It's a great moment in history
BANDO: Hull temperature up 70%
MOSS: Mission control, this is great, great big goodbye time. We will
enter the Ion Veil in 12 seconds
BOOSH: 10 seconds now, 9, 8
MC: One great
big goodbye to Eagle 5, from all the boys here at Mission Control. Talk to you
again in 22 months. Good luck, fellas
(Alarms go off and light
crackles, as the Eagle 5 makes its bumpy way through the swirly blue ion
BANDO: Hull temperature dropping
BOOSH: Captain, let me be
the first to tell you that we are the first to perforate the Ion Veil
That's great. Damage?
BANDO: Couple of scratches but no broken bones, best as
I can tell Captain
(They do a quick game of One
BOOSH: Dig dig!
BANDO: Mash mash!
MOSS: You hear anything out there?
BOOSH: I hear squat so far,
MOSS: Gentlemen - we're on our way
(790 is reciting poetry in
790: Eyes like jewels, skin sublime
Zev was the
zeviest of all time
(Stan comes into the cryochamber, and starts
activating the controls of Kai's pod)
STAN: We got a visitor, tin
790: Not interested!
Mouth of an angel, hair beyond compare
Zev, Zev, Zev, will you ever be there?
STAN: I don't know how it happened,
but there's a girl I used to know, and now she's on the Lexx! At least, I think
it's a girl
790: Please, I'm concentrating!
Hands of gold, buttery
Breasts that were the perfect size
(Lyekka appears next to
LYEKKA: Who are you talking about?
790: Zev of course, you
pale imitation of the human female form
(The cryopod opens and Kai
KAI: You have need of me?
STAN: Er - yeah, I think so.
Umm - This is Lyekka. I used to know a Lyekka, a long time ago, and I was
dreaming about her, and I woke up, and there she is - at least I - something
that looks like her
KAI: What sort of a thing are you?
LYEKKA: A plant, I
think. I came from Stan's dream
(Lyekka waves cutely at
KAI: It must have been a good dream
STAN: No, not
(Kai gets back into his cryopod)
STAN: Wait, wait,
wait! The thing is, that she's, um, - she's smooth, right round the bend. No sex
parts. And she doesn't know how she got here
(Back on the Eagle
BOOSH: Isn't this the ultimate fantasy?
BANDO: Not even close.
The ultimate fantasy is an all expenses paid dream date with a super model who
only wants me for my body
MOSS: Which super model?
BANDO: Any super
MOSS: Bando - you wouldn't know what to do with a super model if you
(Moss puts on his cowboy hat)
BANDO: Oh, that
hurts, Moss. I would take my super model to a real expensive restaurant - fancy,
fancy, fancy. But she can't concentrate on the food, 'cause she's so turned
(He floats food packets to the others)
MOSS: She likes
BANDO: She likes this astronaut - big time. There's candlelight,
some nice music, everything's real classy. We got a bottle of real wine, she
starts playing footsie under the table
MOSS: And then?
BANDO: You mean
after dinner? I give her the big one
(Moss and Boosh exchange amused
MOSS: Wait a minute - does Sally Sue know you're renting out
the big one?
BANDO: Sally Sue is not part of my fantasy. She's part of my
MOSS: OK. Fair enough. What about you, Boosh?
BOOSH: If I had a fantasy, this would be it
No, no, what's your fantasy?
BOOSH: This. I've been waiting my whole life for
this moment. You see, I wanna go down in the history books as the first, the
very first to come into contact with intelligent alien life forms
about you, Moss? Being out here your ultimate fantasy?
BANDO: What then?
BANDO: I don't get it
Values. The quiet, good, simple life we have back on Potatoho. You see, I like,
I like to be in a garden. I like to work the soil with my hands, get everything
just right. And then just as the sun changes, Becky Boo'll come out on the back
porch and she'll say "EJ, are you gonna stop playing around in that silly old
garden, and come in here and start playing around with me?"
BOOSH: Well, you
know what they say captain
MOSS: No, what?
BOOSH: You can take the boy out
of Potatoho, but you -
BANDO: - can't take the Potatoho -
MOSS: - out of
BOOSH: Captain? I think I hear something
(They can hear
BOOSH: Real distant, but it might be something
LYEKKA: What are you?
790: A broken heart in a metal
My darling Zev is dead, dead, dead!
Oh, how full and moist your
Oh, how round and choice your hips
And your voice, so full of
Please be Zev again for me
STAN: Zev was a crew member. She died.
That's all that's left of her
(He points to Zev's jar, which has the
rubber parts of her costume draped around it. Lyekka looks at
LYEKKA: I like Stanley better than I like you
LYEKKA: I don't like dead things
KAI: I do not understand what she
LYEKKA: I'm hungry
(An image of the Eagle 5 astronauts appears
on a small view screen in the cryochamber)
MOSS: Come in. This is
Eagle 5. Can you identify yourself? I repeat, this is Eagle 5
KAI: It seems
we have more visitors
MOSS: Can you acknowledge?
STAN: Great - open house
on the Lexx
MOSS: I repeat, this is Eagle 5. Can you acknowledge? We are
(Eagle 5 approaches the Lexx. Stan, Kai and Lyekka watch
from the bridge)
STAN: I don't know if this is such a good idea,
maybe we should just blast 'em
KAI: They don't show any signs of
LYEKKA: I like them
(Kai takes a moth out
to the Eagle 5, salutes, then points to himself, then back to the Lexx. Kai
leads the astronauts onto the bridge of the Lexx. They are all wearing
protective suits, and pulling an oxygen supply behind them. Moss has his
leaflet. He starts to speak, slowly and clearly)
from the children of the planet Potatoho
(Boosh hands Moss a potato,
which he offers to Stan)
MOSS: This is a potato. It is a symbol of
the fertile soil of our beautiful planet
(Stan takes the
MOSS: I am EJ Moss, captain of the Eagle 5
MOSS: And er, this is LL Boosh. He is the science officer,
and this is PT Bando, he is the, er, the flight officer, the flight officer,
KAI: We can understand you
MOSS: You can?
KAI: Yes we
(Kai is almost grinning. Stan gets up on the
STAN: I am Stanley Tweedle, captain of the Lexx. Er - you
can, you can take off your helmets
(Boosh takes his helmet off and
checks the air, then Moss and Bando do the same)
MOSS: Well, um -
what is the Lexx?
STAN: Er, well, Lexx - why don't you tell them who you
LEXX: I am the Lexx
LYEKKA: And I'm
STAN: Yeah, well, Lyekka's, um, er, well - Lyekka's actually, well,
pretty difficult to explain
MOSS: You're humanoids. You're
(Moss shakes hands with them all)
hi. You're humanoids. Hi, how are ya?
(Lyekka licks his nose, which
takes him by surprise)
STAN: Well, I definitely am. Lyekka - I'm
not, well, I think she's a plant, and Kai - well, Kai was
KAI: Yes I was, until I died, 2009 years ago
MOSS: You - wow. Isn't
(Later - everyone is in the cryochamber. The
astronauts have taken off their protective suits, and are now wearing overalls
and string vests)
STAN: OK. Well, This is the cryochamber here. This
is a cryopod, and er -
MOSS: Is that where you sleep?
STAN: No, no, no -
Kai stays in this one, this one, open one, and this is the cryopod control unit
and um - oh look, here, here, right here. This is 790. He's a semi intelligent
robot head, with the emphasis on semi!
790: Get lost, creeps, all of you.
Leave me alone with the most perfect woman who ever lived
STAN: Yeah, we used
to have another crew member. Her name was Zev. She got blasted into that gooey
protein in that jar there
LYEKKA: What was she like?
790: You heard me.
The most perfect woman who ever lived. The most perfect woman who ever could
STAN: Zev and I didn't, er - but she was OK. It's too bad
(Lyekka takes the lid off Zev's jar, sticks her finger into the goo
and tastes it. 790 screams)
LYEKKA: She's nice
790: Ah! Kai, kill
her at once, please! She's eating my darling Zev!
KAI: I will not do that,
STAN: Yeah, well, 790 has an attitude problem - easily agitated
Kill him too!
KAI: I will also not kill him - now
790: And you call
yourself an assassin!
(Moss looks shocked by this. Lyekka looks at
LYEKKA: I'm hungry - and I like you
Lyekka away from Bando)
STAN: OK, well, we'll get you something. Um
- you guys, you guys hungry at all?
ASTRONAUTS: Huh - you
(Into the galley)
STAN: So, just order whatever
it is you like fellas, and Lexx makes it for ya - most days, if all his special
organs are working right - which isn't all the time!
MOSS: How, er - how do
you recreate the protein?
STAN: Recreate the protein?
MOSS: Yeah. Well, I
assume that you create diverse and complex foodstuffs from simple
STAN: I don't know - who's counting? Lexx - feed 'em. Go
(Moss gets a potato masher out from his
MOSS: Yeah? OK, I'll have some - mmm, potatoes. Sweet
garden potatoes, please
BOOSH: Scalloped for me, please
BANDO: Just a
plain order of big old fries for me please
(The nozzles squirt out
something that looks nothing like potatoes)
STAN: Yeah, well, I'm
not sure potatoes are Lexx's strong point, but it will taste potato-like - if
you use your imagination. Lyekka?
LYEKKA: I'm not hungry for
(Stan looks slightly worried by this)
er - well, what's so great about Potatoho anyway? What is it, got a lot of
potatoes there, or is it just shaped like a potato, or does it smell like a
(Stan laughs. The astronauts don't)
MOSS: Let me
tell you something, captain. I'll tell you what the great thing about Potatoho
is. It's the great people. That and our great values. Isn't that right
BOOSH: Yes sir
MOSS: I mean, we may seem backward to you captain,
but I don't think there's a man of us here'd exchange any of this for what we
got on Potatoho. I mean, when I think of my, my farm, my little garden, my Becky
Boo, my girl - I mean that, that can't be beat
BANDO: The only thing that
does beat that captain, is snuggling up for a big cuddle with my Sally
MOSS: Oh, my Becky Boo -
BANDO: My Sally Sue -
BOOSH: You have to
excuse them, Captain Tweedle. They get it just about right except for one little
MOSS: Oh yeah?
BOOSH: I'm the only man gets to go home at night to
my Mary Moo
BOOSH: She's just great
STAN: You guys are
lucky, I guess. You got girls to go home to
Stan leads the astronauts onto the bridge)
MOSS: Captain (he
belches) Excuse me. Could you tell me something?
you ever come across any other intelligent life forms out in the great unknown
STAN: (laughs) Are you kidding me?! Where are you guys
MOSS: Captain - our small but great planet Potatoho is located inside
the Great Ion Veil, so it is blind to any electromagnetic signals that might be
coming from the great unknown yonder
STAN: Guess that'd keep ya a bit out of
MOSS: Captain - how exactly do you pilot the Lexx?
STAN: Drive this
thing? Oh, it's very technical. But actually, all you gotta know is that Lexx
does what I tell it to, when I tell it to - me and only me. Well, for instance,
if I was to say, er, Lexx, blow up that small planet -
LEXX: As you request,
(The Lexx powers up, and blasts a blue planet
STAN: Good shot
MOSS: Captain - where's our capsule?
STAN: Well, actually, er, Lexx
just blew it up. Sorry
BANDO: So - how are we gonna get back
(Later. Stan is asleep. Moss watches him, then goes back to
Boosh and Bando, who are resting on Zev's bed)
MOSS: I'm only saying
(Boosh and Bando get up)
MOSS: We'll do one hour
recon. I'll go forward, Boosh, you aft, Bando, you got the bridge
(They synchronise watches)
BANDO: One hour recon,
bridge area, check
BOOSH: One hour aft, check
MOSS: We'll meet in one
hour. Be careful of that guy with the hair
BANDO: One hour
MOSS: Watch out for the girl
BANDO: Yes sir. I'll just be thinking
of Sally Sue
BOOSH: And me Mary Moo
MOSS: One hour,
(On the bridge, Lyekka's pod moves, its tendrils sway.
Bando comes onto the bridge and looks at the pod, hears
LYEKKA: It's me - Lyekka
BANDO: Where are you?
LYEKKA: I'm right
(Lyekka appears beside him)
BANDO: Are you
LYEKKA: I'm not alone right now. I'm with you. Would you like to have
me, Flight Officer Bando?
BANDO: No no no, I have a -
BANDO: Yeah, I would like to have you
(Bando kisses Lyekka,
and they enter his fantasy. They are in a fancy restaurant - which serves
BANDO: So, er - you know what I am?
LYEKKA: You're an
BANDO: I'm a pretty big astronaut. Big where it counts
That's great. You're great
(She slides her foot onto his
BANDO: You can call me Big Boy Bando
LYEKKA: Big Boy
BANDO: I bet I'm the biggest boy you ever had
BANDO: Who's a big boy?
LYEKKA: You're a big
LYEKKA: You're a big boy!
BANDO: I'm a big boy. I'm
a big boy!
(His head is getting larger, distorted)
I'm Big Boy Bando!
(His face goes red, steam comes out of his ears,
and his head blows off. Back on the bridge, there are chomping noises. The
tendrils on Lyekka's pod shake)
(Meanwhile, back on the great planet
MC: I would like now, on behalf of all the great
citizens of Potatoho, to take a moment of heartfelt prayer, in the hope that our
boys will come home safe and sound. And we pray that our boys will do us proud,
that they -
MC: Not now - that our brave boys, who represent
the small but great planet of Potatoho, will -
(Mantrid drones devour Potatoho, form the shape of the Divine
Order icon, then fly away)
(Moss is in the cryochamber. 790 is still
790: Creamy calves, delicious toes
Zev is gone,
oh worst of woes
MOSS: Cheer up, pal. You ain't seen the girls on Potatoho
(790 spits. Boosh comes into the cryochamber, so 790 spits at him
BOOSH: I can't find - I can't find Bando
MOSS: You go that
way, I'll go this
(Boosh checks on Stan, who is still sleeping.
Lyekka is taking a shower, still wearing her dress. Boosh watches her drinking
water, then he goes to the bridge - and hears laughter)
(Lyekka appears on the
LYEKKA: I was really thirsty, but I'm still kind of -
BOOSH: What are you?
LYEKKA: I'm Lyekka, silly
you come from?
LYEKKA: I'm a friend of Stanley's. Would you like to be with
BOOSH: This will be just between you and me, right? Our little
(Kai is watching them, unseen)
(Lyekka and Boosh touch fingers, and enter Boosh's fantasy. He is
wearing a dinner jacket floating in the Eagle 5. Moss and Bando are in pyjamas
and fluffy slippers, listening to a game. Lyekka is outside, tapping at the
window. She vanishes)
BOOSH: Did you see that? I saw it! I saw it.
We definitely got ourselves a third stage encounter
MOSS: Well, Boosh - why
don't you look after it?
BANDO: Say hi for us, OK?
BOOSH: I'm gonna be the
first to make contact
LYEKKA: Would you like to have me, Boosh? I can do
BOOSH: Isn't this the ultimate fantasy?
BANDO: That's great,
LYEKKA: Boosh, I'm right here
floating outside the window again)
BOOSH: Guys - we've got a
definite alien life form confirmed
BANDO: Really? That's great Boosh. So you
ended up being the very first
MOSS: Yeah - you beat us to it,
(Moss is busy doing a crossword puzzle)
Boosh, turn around, look. I'm inside now, Boosh
(Boosh turns around.
She is floating toward him)
BOOSH: This is truly
LYEKKA: I'm a real live alien, Boosh
(Boosh holds out a
potato, wrapped in foil)
BOOSH: I've been saving this special potato
ever since I was a kid. I wanted to be the first to give it to an

wanna be the first
LYEKKA: Come closer
BOOSH: I wanna be the
(Lyekka floats closer, with her arms
LYEKKA: Would you like to be the first to make an
alien feel good?
BOOSH: I wanna be the first. I wanna be the first to make an
alien feel really good
(A boot falls off as his legs are pulled up
into Lyekka's pod by the tendrils. Kai watches. The Lexx passes through the
Great Ion Veil, heading for Potatoho. Kai goes to Stan's bedchamber and wakes
KAI: Stanley. I have been observing Lyekka, and searching my
memories to better understand her
KAI: Her food gathering
strategy is to imitate other life forms, so these targeted life forms will not
act defensively before being consumed. Lyekka consumed Boosh and Bando
What, you mean she ate them?
STAN: Oh, that's just great! - we
gonna save Moss?
KAI: I have no motivation to save Moss from Lyekka - or
Lyekka from Moss
(Stan gets dressed, and heads for the bridge. Moss
arrives at the same time)
Where's Boosh and Bando?
STAN: I don't know
MOSS: I had a rendezvous with
my men 37 minutes ago
MOSS: Men from my unit are well trained,
and are never late
LEXX: Stan, we're here
(The view screen shows
STAN: I don't get it
MOSS: What don't you get,
STAN: You sure you gave me the right co-ordinates for
MOSS: I know where my planet is
STAN: Yeah, well, maybe, but
we're here, and it's not
MOSS: What are you saying?
STAN: I'm saying that
it looks like Potatoho has - gone for a walk
MOSS: Don't joke with
STAN: Well, maybe it's a travelling planet, or if it's a potato maybe
somebody ate it
(Moss starts to get just a bit
MOSS: That's, that's, it's, what? right - oh, oh, sweet
potato, no, sweet potato - You blew it up, didn't you?!
MOSS: Yes you did, you blew it up. First the capsule - an accident, oh
right! - and then my friends, sure, and now my planet! Oh god, my Potatoho's
(Moss sees Boosh's boot)
(He picks it up)
MOSS: What's this?
STAN: I did
not blow up Potatoho
(Moss grabs Stan by the throat and waves the
boot in his face)
MOSS: What's this?
STAN: I didn't do anything
to your buddies! It's her, it's that!
(Stan points at Lyekka's
STAN: It's Lyekka, she's a plant
she's not, she's more human than you or me
STAN: No, she's a plant from my
dreams that eats people, Kai told me!
(Moss lets go of
STAN: Yes, Kai
MOSS: The robot head said he
was an assassin. That dirty bastard. Where is he?
STAN: You don't wanna mess
with Kai, Moss, trust me
MOSS: Yes I do
(Moss storms off the
STAN: It's not Kai you gotta worry about, it's
(In the cryochamber)
790: Zev, those lips, that
kiss you blew
Zev's the girl I want to - huh?

rubber draped over Zev's jar and picks the jar up)
790: What do you
think you're doing? Put Zev down. Horror! Outrage! Madness!
comes into the cryochamber)
MOSS: Where's the assassin?!
You, whoever you are, make her put my beloved down
MOSS: Where's my
LYEKKA: I kind of ate them. They were really tasty too
heard her - she ate them. Now kill her. And then kill yourself - unless there's
others onboard. If so, kill them first before killing yourself - after you
return Zev, of course
MOSS: Shut up
(Moss kicks 790. He's losing
MOSS: Robot heads. Really dead guys. Weird little chicks from
who knows where. Potatoho gone (sobs) I don't know what you know,
little lady - but I'm gonna find out, and you're gonna be really
(Lyekka leaves, carrying Zev's jar. Moss follows
790: No! Bring back my Zev!
(Stan and Kai arrive.
Stan picks 790 up)
STAN: What happened?
790: She took Zev. I
think she might eat her. Tweedle - I promise you. If you can somehow save her
protein, I'll never say another bad word about you ever again, I

on there, missy. Where's my buddies?
LYEKKA: I told you. I was hungry - and
they were yummy
MOSS: Don't laugh at me. I'm having a tough day. Where's my
(Moss holds up the boot)
LYEKKA: You're not
afraid of me, are you?

you like to make me happy?

STAN: Don't touch her, she's got Zev
Get out of my way
LYEKKA: I will make you happy
MOSS: Get out of my way.
It's time for little women to make way for the men
Lyekka's shoulder to push her aside - )
now it's Moss's fantasy. He's working in a field, wearing a loincloth and a sun
hat. Dirty but happy. A cute freckled Lyekka is watching him from a
LYEKKA: EJ! Are you gonna play in that silly old garden all
day, or are you gonna play with me?
(This is a tough decision. Moss
thinks for a minute - then goes back to digging his garden)
(Moss starts watering his garden)
garden. Good virtue. Drink up
(The field is full of heads - not heads
of lettuce, but people)
MOSS: Garden is virtue
bends down to chat to the heads)
MOSS: Cheer up, son. Garden is
value. Home sweet home Potatoho
LYEKKA: Whatever makes you happy,
(Lyekka smiles, as Moss disappears into her pod - along with
Zev's protein. Zev's empty jar falls to the ground)
790: Zev! Kai -
use your brace!
KAI: To do what?
790: Smash it open, get Zev out of
(Lyekka walks onto the bridge. Kai takes aim at her, but Stan
steps between them)
STAN: Look, don't hurt Lyekka, OK?
cares about Lyekka? She's eating Zev! Kai, please Kai, shoot, hurry!
Wait - Lyekka can tell us what's going on
790: Kill the murderer!
Lyekka, where are the other two astronauts?
LYEKKA: I ate them both - they
790: See - she's a killer! A stone cold killer!
KAI: Both - why
did you eat the third?
LYEKKA: I used his protein, and Zev's - to make you a
STAN: A present?
LYEKKA: Because I want to make you happy. I
looked inside you while you were sleeping, and I took the form of a girl I saw
there. I knew right away that I liked you
STAN: What are you talking about,
(Lyekka looks at her pod. Something drops down onto the
floor, stands up. It's red-haired Xev, wearing nothing but slime and her rubber
bits. She opens her eyes and looks around - then sees Stan and
790: What - ?!
(Xev is trying to remember their
(Kai looks - stunned?)
(Xev smiles. Stan looks baffled)
790: You're different - but it is really
(790 has hearts in his eyes. Lyekka stands next to
LYEKKA: I had to go on your description. I hope she's
790: She's perfect!
XEV: I'm back!
(Stan laughs. Lyekka goes
to touch his face, and he flinches)
LYEKKA: I'm not hungry
(Stan breathes a sigh of relief)
LYEKKA: I have
to rest for a while. Is that OK with you, Stan?
(Stan strokes her
STAN: You're OK with me, Lyekka. But what happens when you
wake up and you're hungry again?
LYEKKA: Then I will need to eat
KAI: We will try to find you a planet suitable to your needs
That would be nice
(Lyekka smiles at Stan, stands beneath her pod,
LYEKKA: Sweet dreams
(The tendrils pull
her up into her pod. Stan looks at Xev)
STAN: I, um - we all missed
790: Not as much as me, maggot brain
STAN: You promised there were
going to be no more insults
790: I lied
(Xev picks up 790, then
turns to Kai)
KAI: It is nice to see you again,
XEV: Maybe she can help bring you back to life too
KAI: I do not
XEV: I guess I'd better get dressed
Well, I'll have to make something
STAN: Out of what?
XEV: Cluster lizard,
(Xev hisses, gives Stan 790, and skips off the bridge. 790
laughs. Stan pulls a face and shakes him, but 790 doesn't stop
