Lexx 2.10 Wake The Dead
(written by Jeffrey Hirschfield)
(A space camper van, orbiting a planet. Inside are the boys -
Tad, Enox, and Gibble - and the girls Kanana and Laleen)
Gibble - you wanna party?
LALEEN: Yeah, come on Gibble - you wanna party,
(Tad and Gibble are checking the cryocapsules. They join
TAD: Yeah. So all we gotta do is cryosleep now, set a
wake up signal, and in a couple of days we'll be there. What could possibly go
GIBBLE: You guys have no idea what you're doing
ALL: Come on,
(The others persuade Gibble to sit down at the shuttle's
controls, while they gather round)
TAD: OK - we're being
ENOX: No we're not, you have to press that one to record
Why don't we let the auto signal take us in? It's all pre-set
ENOX: Do you
want to go through all that camp customs introductory "Do this, do that" crap
KANANA: No, but -
GIBBLE: This is my dad's transport, and if we
break something -
ENOX: Shut up fatty
TAD: All right - so I hit the
record button, and then you transmit the code
(Tad and Enox punch
GIBBLE: Tad - that's the camera
Lexx, Stan, Xev and 790 are watching a recording of this)
Are you sure we got it right?
ENOX: Like I said, if I was wrong we'd be being
recorded right now, but we're not, so -
TAD: All right! Everyone cryocrash
now and before you know it we'll be partying like stink
ALL: Party like
stink, stink, stink! Party like stink! Woo hoo!
(The shuttle floating
in space now is discoloured and older - a lot older)
790: I believe they were attempting to customise a code intended to
trigger a wake up signal once their vessel reached its destination, but as a
result of their tampering no code was ever transmitted, no signal ever sent.
They never woke up
STAN: Oh, stupid kids. Stupid, stupid kids
long have they been drifting?
790: 287 years
STAN: Whoa! They're
XEV: Maybe not
XEV: Let's find out
STAN: Whoa, why?
Let them rot
XEV: They're just kids
790: With terminal freezer
(790 switches off)
STAN: What if it's a
XEV: I'm a big girl, and there's you
STAN: Oh no. No no no. Not me.
XEV: Well, I'm up for it - and Kai, he's only got a limited supply
of protoblood, when it's gone, he's gone. We can't waste it on every little
thing so come on, let's go
STAN: No! Sorry
XEV: OK. Bye
(She leaves the bridge)
STAN: Oh, Xev
(Shot of a moth flying low over the Lexx's eye. Xev enters the
shuttle. It's dark, and the kids are all in cryosleep. Xev uses a torch to
examine the controls. She defrosts Gibble, and shines the torch in his
GIBBLE: Oh - who are you?
XEV: Sorry (turns torch off)
My name's Xev
GIBBLE: Hi - I'm Gibble. Are you a camp
XEV: No, no - we received your signal
GIBBLE: Oh, the auto
XEV: Yeah, a signal that was recorded a long time ago
long time ago?
XEV: Well, obviously there was a problem, and we found you
drifting in space
GIBBLE: You mean, more than a couple of days
XEV: Yeah - about 300 years
GIBBLE: My dad's gonna be so
(The moth flies back to the Lexx. Stan ushers the kids onto
STAN: OK, come on, right this way kids, come on, watch
your step there. Hey - beats your beater, huh?
ENOX: Check it
(Stan gets up onto the pedestal - 790 is sitting at the
STAN: Yeah. Listen, just drop your stuff anywhere, anywhere at
all. That's good, that's fine there. OK, come on, come on. Gather round, come
on, come on. Now - this is the bridge, from where I - and only I - control the
LALEEN: Totally oooo, like - ah!
STAN: Yeah, exactly, yeah. Lexx -
say "Hello guests"
LEXX: Hello guests
GIBBLE: Wow. A talking
(Gibble takes a bite of his chocolate - then Tad steals
STAN: Yeah, see - Lexx is alive. He's still growing
yourselves at home, why don't you?
TAD: Check it out, a talking robot -
790: I'm 790, punk - and I don't like you, any of you. If you come near
me I will incinerate you with lasers from my eyes
(An image of laser
sights appears in 790's eyes)
XEV: No you won't - because he can't.
790: I'm only trying to protect you
ENOX: The gang'll never
KANANA: That's because the gang are all gone
KANANA: After 300 years, everyone is long gone
moves onto the cryochamber)
STAN: Now, this is the cryochamber. Now
- whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!
(Stan holds Enox
STAN: Now I'm only gonna say this once. Do not - I repeat - do
not touch anything in this room
(Enox leans on the cryopod for a
STAN: This is Kai
LALEEN: Major babe
(Enox kisses Laleen)
TAD: He's weird
dead - well, he's, he's not exactly dead. He's, umm, alive dead
(Gibble tries to get a closer look, but Enox pinches his
STAN: And what's more, he's an assassin,
he's extremely dangerous
(Xev squeezes past Tad, who enjoys it -
XEV: He's a good assassin. In fact, he' a hero, who
has saved our lives, many times
ENOX: Well, let's wake him up!
STAN: Not a
XEV: Kai only lives on because of special protoblood. It's precious,
and must be carefully conserved
ENOX: Come on! Just for a minute
of the question
(Laleen knocks on the cryopod - Stan moves her
STAN: Xev, er, Xev, er - why don't you take 'em to the
XEV: Sure - this way
GIBBLE: Yes, please!
(In the galley, a nozzle squirts green goo into a
LALEEN: Retchfest maximus!
(Gibble tastes some of
GIBBLE: This is awesome!
ENOX: You would say that,
wouldn't you, porko
KANANA: Leave him alone, Enox
ENOX: What's stuck in
KANANA: You shouldn't criticise others when this whole thing is
TAD: She's right Enox
LALEEN: As I recall Tad, everything was
humming along until -
ENOX: Yeah, everything was humming until you messed
TAD: You know what Enox? I am so tired of you. My only mistake was
letting you near the controls
(They stare at each other. Enox flicks
goo on Tad's face. Tad grabs him, but Xev separates them)
XEV: Hey -
enough, that's enough! Cool down. This is a difficult time for all of you, so
try to keep it together
(Tad whispers something in Xev's
KANANA: What's to become of us?
XEV: I don't know but we'll
try and make the best of things while we figure that out, OK? Come with
(Xev leads Tad away - to the toilets)
XEV: Here we
TAD: Where's the toilet?
TAD: That's the toilet?
The, umm - sensation - takes a little getting used to. Watch
takes something from his pocket, throws it into the toilet. A huge tongue comes
out and licks the rim)
TAD: I don't think I need to go that
(Later, on the bridge. Enox is spray painting a
jacket. Kanana is chatting with Xev)
KANANA: See, me and the gang
and Tad - he's my boyfriend - sorta. We were all headed for planet Momo 13.
There's this beautiful lake there - Lake Kismekisme - the number one party
ENOX: Give us a wet one, Kanana
KANANA: In your dreams, Enox! Anyway,
a bunch of campers got killed there once
KANANA: Mmhmm. By
the Kisme Kid Carver. He slashed their throats and cut open their
VOICE: And he's right behind you, ha ha!
(Kanana jumps -
it's Tad, on a squawker, behind her)
checking to see if the blabbers still work
KANANA: You scared me
Well, why don't you hold yours close to your skin, in case I want to call you up
and talk dirty? Relax, baby, the Carver never got us. But he might if he ever
got out of prison
KANANA: Yeah - he's dead - like everyone
(Stan walks onto the bridge, followed by his fan club - Laleen
STAN: - then I bring the Lexx in, and I blast the planet
with the bug still inside and, ah, rescue Xev, and basically saved the
LALEEN: You're totally testosterone blammo action
(She playfully punches Stan's arm)
STAN: Yeah, I
guess, you know, it's uh -
790: Did you say you were from Bingo 44,
790: That was a Reform planet. Stanley Tweedle caused
it to be destroyed. He murdered everyone you ever loved - or more accurately,
(Stan takes 790, puts him down on the floor by the
pedestal, and treads on him)
790: Unhand me, you pederast!
Ah - ignore him. He's due for a rewiring
790: Get your foot off my
GIBBLE: Captain Tweedle, sir -
out his hand, then pulls it away as Gibble is about to shake it. They
STAN: Call me Stan, kid
GIBBLE: Stan, so - let me get this
straight - you're the only one that can control this ship?
ENOX: Look what I got!
(It's some sort of drink and
ALL: Woo hoo!
ENOX: And Gibble's got a dozen hits of
(Enox takes it out of Gibble's
ALL: All right!
GIBBLE: Gongslanger root! I don't do
(Enox starts to hand it out to the
TAD: Well, we do! Way to go, Gibble!
STAN: What is it,
what, what's that?
ENOX: This is fun, mister!
LALEEN: And this is fun's
(Laleen gives Stan a drink. He sniffs it dubiously. Enox
offers Xev some gongslanger)
XEV: No thanks, I'm not
(Enox gives the rest of it back to Gibble)
Guard the rest of these till we ask for 'em. Take one if you want. Take two in
fact - handling charge
(Stan tries the drink, pulls a face. Tad gets
out a stereo)
ALL: Stink, man stink!
stink, stink, stink!
Party like stink, stink, stink!
(The party begins. Gibble goes off into the
GIBBLE: I can't believe Enox did that. I can't believe
(The kids are now dancing, Stan and Xev watching. Gibble is on
GIBBLE: The gongslanger root - he hid it on
(He drops the gongslanger down the toilet)
party is winding down. Kanana is in her sleeping bag, Tad gets in beside her.
Gibble returns to the bridge, has a drink, and tries to dance with
LALEEN: Blow, Gibble
(She spills Gibble's drink
on him. Xev is inspecting a tattoo on Enox's arm)
XEV: You did this
ENOX: So, yeah - I consider myself an artist
(Stan is leaning on the pedestal. Laleen comes up behind him,
and starts to touch him)
LALEEN: Don't you ever get lonely,
STAN: Oh, er - I gotta go to bed. Goodnight
STAN: Goodnight, Laleen. Oh boy
XEV: I'm tired too
ENOX: Lay down out here. We can keep
ENOX: Come on Xev - stay and party. I feel like you and me
are really starting to connect
(Xev strokes his cheek. Laleen is
watching, but turns away)
XEV: Get some sleep, Enox.
790: Good riddance, adolescent scum
XEV: You're rude!
(Xev takes 790 away with her. Enox goes over to
Laleen, pulls her to him)
ENOX: Gettin boff and wiggly, babe.
(Laleen pushes him away)
Screw you! I saw you hitting on her
ENOX: I wasn't! Anyway, I saw you giving
mister captain the "come do me" eye
LALEEN: I was getting back at
ENOX: Face it Laleen - you're a slut
LALEEN: You're the
ENOX: You are! And a lousy lay, too
LALEEN: You pig!
tries to slap him)
KANANA: Enox, you are a pig!
TAD: Yeah, a
ENOX: Eat me, and die! You guys
make me sick. Come on, Gibble, let's take a walk
(Enox drags Gibble
away with him)
KANANA: He's such a zorg when he's goofed
KANANA: And don't think I didn't catch you looking at Xev too
Come on - she's hot - but you're hotter
(They kiss. Meanwhile, Enox
drags Gibble down a corridor)
ENOX: Come on,
(Kanana breaks off the kiss)
KANANA: No, Tad -
TAD: Come on, Kanana
KANANA: I'm not ready
TAD: Look, it's been
three centuries. We're all we've got now
KANANA: I know. I just need some
time to work things out. You understand, don't you?
- I'm fried. You wouldn't want me like this, would you?
I love you (kisses him) Soon
(She lies down to
(In the cryochamber, Enox draws a skull on the cryopod, then
starts playing with the controls)
GIBBLE: Enox -
what are you doing?
ENOX: Waking the assassin, what does it look
GIBBLE: The captain told us not to touch anything!
ENOX: Don't be
such a bed wetter
GIBBLE: We're gonna get in trouble
ENOX: Back off
GIBBLE: What if he really gets up and does all -
grabs his face)
ENOX: Don't be stupid. The stiff is nothing more
than a maggot retirement home
GIBBLE: I guess
(Enox knocks on the
ENOX: Hey - bunhead, can you hear me? Look, if you're
really an assassin, do a job for me, will ya? Kill Tad - he deserves it for
being in my face and on my case
GIBBLE: You shouldn't be hitting that
ENOX: And take out his girlfriend Kanana too, huh - sanctimonious cow.
And do Laleen while you're at it
ENOX: Yeah, two less skanks
in the cosmos. And make sure you take a good bite into my fat friend Gibble
(Enox bites Gibble)
GIBBLE: Me! You! He should kill
you. Kill him
ENOX: And Xev - she doesn't know a stud when she sees one. And
Stan, because, because he's like - over thirty! Kill everyone, man! Go on a
GIBBLE: Like the Kisme Kid Carver?
ENOX: Exactly. Stalk 'em and
ENOX: Waste 'em one at a time, in cool ways. Be sick.
Do some fast, some slow. Have fun. Go major psycho
(Stan comes into
STAN: Hey! What are you kids doing here?
STAN: Didn't I tell you kids he was
ENOX: I'm not a kid
STAN: And I told you not to touch anything!
(Stan checks the cryopod controls)
STAN: You've already
proven that you're inept with technology
ENOX: We didn't touch
GIBBLE: We were just taking a look
ENOX: So why don't you mellow
STAN: You get out of here, boy. Go to bed!
GIBBLE: Yes sir. Sorry sir
(Gibble leaves. Enox grins, and
follows him. Stan is not amused)
STAN: Stupid kids
leaves. Kai's eyes open - they are yellow)
(In the corridor, Enox jumps
onto Gibble's back)
ENOX: Giddy up!
(They go onto the
bridge, and run into Tad)
ENOX: You are so dead, man
leaves the bridge)
(Xev is exercising in her
bedchamber, when Tad comes in)
TAD: Sorry, Xev. Did I scare
790: Yes you did! Dismember him, darling
kicks 790 with her foot, and he switches off)
XEV: What are you
TAD: Err - that's a good question, I guess - I thought this was
(Xev lies on the bed, looking at him. Tad sits down beside
TAD: Things aren't working out with me and Kanana. I mean,
she's nice and everything, but a little too nice, if you know what I mean. She
won't - you know
TAD: You know -
XEV: And what does that
have to do with me?
TAD: Well, I, er, I thought - I mean, I guess - Xev,
you're a woman
(Xev kneels on the bed next to him)
And, er, I'm a man. Kanana's a girl. You're beautiful
(Tad goes to
stroke Xev's face, but she holds his hand away)
XEV: You're very
nice too, Tad, but I think you better talk to your girlfriend first
to hell with her!
(Tad pulls Xev down on the bed with him. They hear
a voice - )
KANANA: Tad, where are you?
( - and Kanana
walks in on them)
KANANA: Oh, Tad. You bastard
(Tad runs after Kanana. Xev flops
back into bed)
(Laleen is alone in a corridor. She hears
TAD: Kanana! Kanana!
LALEEN: Love leaks puke
(Tad has wandered into the toilet)
TAD: What am I
supposed to do, hold out forever? I need sex - and a major dump
sits down on the toilet. The cubicle next door licks. Tad takes out his
TAD: Hello? Who's there? Freaky crapper,
(Xev is lying on her bed, when Kanana jumps on
KANANA: You bitch! You're trying to steal my boyfriend!
Calm down! You're wrong, I didn't do anything
Butcheress! Unhand my woman!
XEV: 790, stay off! I'm telling the truth. He
grabbed me. Come on. Cool it, OK?
TAD: Tad to Kanana? Tad to
(Kanana's blabber is lying on Xev's bed, so they can hear
KANANA: (whispers) I'm not here!
TAD: Look, if
you're receiving this - I'm sorry baby. Talk to me! Come on
makes a vomit gesture. She and Xev laugh)
TAD: Pick up the blabber
baby, just talk to me
KANANA: Are all men that slimy?
TAD: Look, I'm
XEV: Good ones are hard to find
TAD: Just come on, pick it
up, pick up the blabber. I just wanna talk, that's all
XEV: At least, live
TAD: Come on, pick it up! I love you, it's just that I get frustrated
sometimes. Please Kanana? Please?
(Tad hears a voice on the blabber -
but it's not Kanana)
KAI: Please Kanana? Please? You didn't treat
her right, Tad. You're a bad boyfriend, so she dumped you, just like I'm gonna
TAD: Who is this? Enox, I'm gonna tear you apart
KAI: Who is it? Enox?
- you're never gonna see Enox again, Tad. Or Kanana, Tad. Or anyone else for
that matter, Tad (laughs)
TAD: Oh yeah? Well, I'm shaking so bad, I
can't finish my poopoo! Enox - you are so dead, man
(Tad turns the
blabber off, and finishes his poopoo. Kai rises up out of the toilet next door.
His hair is down and dishevelled. He readies his brace. Tad sees his shadow on
the membrane dividing the cubicles)
KAI: You are so dead,
(Kai rips the membrane and dives through at
(Meanwhile, on the bridge, Enox is drawing a skull on a bag which is
hanging from the pedestal)
GIBBLE: That's Tad's
ENOX: Just go
take a leak
(Gibble leaves. Enox admires his
(Laleen is walking along a
passageway when she hears a voice)
KAI: Laleen. La-leeeene!
(Laleen stops, looks behind her, hears a laugh)
(Laleen stops again, and a hand taps her on the shoulder - but
it's only Stan)
STAN: Ah! Sheesh! Hi - take it easy,
little lady. What's wrong?
LALEEN: I thought I heard someone calling my name
- it was evil
STAN: Oh no, it's this ship, makes all kinds of funny noises, I
mean it was just your imagination
LALEEN: I don't know, it sounded - you're
probably right. I scare easy
STAN: Yeah, well - hey, look, you want me to
walk you back to the bridge?
LALEEN: I don't wanna go back there
LALEEN: I'd rather stay with you, Captain
(Laleen puts her hand
on Stan's shoulder)
STAN: Oh, well, yeah, ah, look, I don't know if
that'd be, ah -
LALEEN: What's wrong?
(She rubs his
STAN: - such a good idea. Wrong? Nothing, nothing wrong,
nothing, everything. Oh look - look, see it's just, um, look er honey, er, I, I,
I, I think you're just a little young, is all
LALEEN: I'm three centuries
older than you are
(Stan thinks about this - for all of three
(Gibble is in the toilet, when a body
GIBBLE: Is that you Tad?
(Gibble runs back onto
GIBBLE: Enox, I did something terrible. I killed Tad.
The gongslanger root, I dropped it in the toilet and Tad went in there and then
the toilet went mental and killed him - it's my fault
ENOX: Great story,
Gibble. Why don't you grab some food - it'll calm you
(Distraught, Gibble goes to the galley)
Killed Tad - killed Tad
(He sits down by the
GIBBLE: I need food, and a lot of it
squirts him a bowl of green goo)
GIBBLE: Nobody takes me
(Back in Xev's bedchamber)
KANANA: So do you
think I should save myself until I'm ready?
XEV: Well, I think I'm really the
wrong person to ask
KANANA: Do you love anyone, Xev?
XEV: That's a long
story, and I'm beat. Do you wanna sleep here?
KANANA: Thanks, but no. Maybe
Tad and I can work things out
XEV: Good idea. Nighty night
(Back in the galley, Gibble is eating. A
shadow moves behind him, and there's a laugh. Gibble looks, sees nothing,
carries on eating - then something grabs his spoon from inside the bowl. A hand
comes up out of the bowl and grabs his mouth)
KAI: You know what,
Gibble? You're a rotten kid. You dumped gongslanger into the toilet, and you
wake the dead. And when you wake the dead, fatso, form dictates, you join 'em!
Eat up! Chow down!
(Kai's hand pulls Gibble's head into the bowl of
goo. Gibble struggles, but to no avail)
(Stan's bedchamber. Laleen is
looking for him - he's hiding behind his moth bed)
STAN: I'm coming to getcha
LALEEN: Come on Stan. If
you catch me I'll do anything you want
(They chase each other around
STAN: Coochie coochie coochie coochie coochie coochie
LALEEN: Help, help, the Kisme Kid Carver's after
STAN: Coming to getcha!
LALEEN: Save me! I'm so pretty and
STAN: Not that innocent
(He's getting worn out by
STAN: Oh, no no no no no. Enough, enough, enough,
(Stan sits down on the edge of the bed)
this, this is just a bad idea
(Laleen stands in front of him, puts
her arms around his neck)
LALEEN: Oh - look at that. You caught
STAN: Oh, lucky me!
(Laleen pushes him back onto the
LALEEN: They say I'm nasty. Bad times nasty times
LALEEN: But they don't know the half of it
I'll find out the other half
STAN: What's wrong?
LALEEN: My pits!
(She rubs under her
LALEEN: They reek!
STAN: Ooh! No, no, you
smell fine, fine
(Stan tries to stop her, but Laleen gets up
LALEEN: It'll be better after a shower. Don't go away,
Captain. I'll be right back
(She pushes him back down onto the bed,
and walks away)
STAN: But I like a little aroma!
is looking for Tad, and wanders into the galley)
KANANA: Tad? Tad,
where are you? I'm ready to talk now, OK?
(Laleen is in the shower -
but doesn't realise Kai is watching)
(Back in the
KANANA: Show yourself!
(Kanana treads in some
green goo, then sees the bowl. She picks it up and looks at the hole in the
bottom. Some goo drops down on her face - then a foot drops down and kicks her
(Laleen is still in the shower. Stan
fluffs his pillow, then lies down on his bed)
STAN: What is she
doing in there?
(Then Laleen hears a voice - almost like
LALEEN: Who's there?
KAI: The man who
LALEEN: Stan, is that you?
KAI: Uh huh
LALEEN: No fair, I
told you to wait
KAI: I tried, but you're so hot, so ripe and delicious. I
want you now!
LALEEN: Talk like that will get you
(Kanana leads Xev and Enox into the
KANANA: I'm telling you the truth!
XEV: All right, all
(They see Gibble's body hanging from the
XEV: Oh no
KANANA: Who could have done this?
god - he killed himself
(Xev pushes at Gibble's foot. Something
(In his bed, Stan checks himself
STAN: Oh - ready
(Meanwhile, back in the
LALEEN: Go back to the bed Stan - I'll be done in a
KAI: It's not Stan
(Laleen finally sees Kai, who glides
towards her, hand outstretched. Shot of their shadows through a membrane as Kai
pushes her head down. His head rips through the membrane)
and Enox are now in the toilet. Tad's feet are sticking out above the
KANANA: Tad, Tad!
ENOX: Gibble flushed the gongslanger root
down the toilet. It got stoned, went nuts and killed Tad. Gibble blamed
(Kai walks away from Laleen's body)
XEV: So he
gorged on food and then hung himself out of guilt?
ENOX: Gibble was a messed
up fat man
(Then they hear Stan)
(Kai is walking through passageway, grunting, and cracking
(The others find Stan in the shower, looking at Laleen's
XEV: Stan -
(He's shocked that Xev could even suspect him. Kanana looks at
XEV: Who could have done this?
(Enox looks at
the body, and realises what he's set in motion)
(Stan grabs his shoulder)
(They are all in the
cryochamber, looking at Kai's empty pod)
790: The programming has
been completely corrupted
XEV: Kai is not Kai anymore
STAN: Who did you
tell him to kill?
ENOX: Um - everybody
STAN: Everybody? Me and Xev,
STAN: Sorry?! Sorry?!
(Stan grabs Enox,
but Xev separates them)
KANANA: Stop it, stop it, stop it! We're all
(Kai is still wandering the passageways, muttering to
KAI: Waking the dead assassin, what does it look like, what
does it look like? Kill Tad. Rip into Gibble. Do Laleen. Kill everyone,
(Back in the cryochamber)
KANANA: What do we do
ENOX: Don't you have any weapons?
STAN: He is an unstoppable killing
machine, you little turd!
(Kai rolls on the ground, his hair falls
over his face. He seems to be having trouble with his brace)
Stalk 'em and stuff. Be inventive, in cool ways. Have fun
790: Our only hope is for everyone else to offer themselves up for
slaughter while Xev and I flee - Tweedle first
XEV: That's it
XEV: Kai can't control the Lexx. Our only hope is to abandon it. We
have to get to a moth and then escape in your shuttle
(Kai pulls the hair away from his face)
the sanctimonious cow. Waste Enox. Kill Stan, Xev, everyone!
let's get moving
XEV: And stay together
(They run out of the
KAI: Kisme Kid Carver! Kill, kill, kill! Inventive.
Kill fast, slow, ripping the sick fuck - major psycho rampage
finally gets his brace to flick out)
(laughs) Maggot retirement home!
(Kai fires his brace into
the ceiling, and swings upwards)
(The others are running along a
passageway - they can hear Kai behind them)
STAN: Come on
Don't stop, keep moving
KAI: Don't run away. Stick together!
dangles upside down behind Enox, and taps him on the shoulder)
Let's get wasted!
(Kai breaks Enox's neck. Kanana starts
KAI: Nobody moves
XEV: Kai - it's me, Xev
XEV: This isn't you Kai. You're not
a killer anymore. The kids just woke you up wrong, that's all. You can fight
STAN: They screwed up, but they don't deserve to die, we none of us
deserve to die
KAI: Be sick, be imaginative. Kill them all - one at a time,
in cool ways
KANANA: Don't kill me, mister!
KAI: Go on a major psycho
rampage. Have fun

Xev - leave me. Run. Run for your life!
KAI: Listen to the robot

790: Promise you won't harm Xev
don't make promises I can't keep
(Kai throws 790 to the
790: Oh, the horror!
(Stan and Kanana are running
to the moths)
KANANA: What are we going to do?
STAN: Don't worry,
I'll get ya outta here. Come on
(Xev is running down a different
passageway. Stan and Kanana make it to the moth breeding chamber. He bundles her
into a moth)
STAN: OK? Now you take it
KANANA: I can't fly this
STAN: You just work the joystick, it practically flies
KANANA: You have to come!
STAN: No, I've gotta go get Xev. We've
got lots of other moths. Just get yourself to that shuttle -
(Stan shuts the door of the moth)
(The moth takes off)
(Stan and Xev meet up on the
(On the view screen, they
watch the moth fly away)
STAN: Oh good
XEV: Good job,
XEV: Where's Kai?
(The moth is
heading for the shuttle, and Kanana starts to relax - until a hand grabs her
KAI: Hello, gorgeous. Going my way?
her neck, and giggles)
(On the bridge, Stan and Xev hear Kai
KAI: Yo A O, Hom Var Ray, Yo A Ra, Jerum Brunnen G
Lexx - 60% magnification please
(The view screen shows Kai flying the
moth - Kanana's feet are visible behind him)
KAI: Yo A Ra, Jerum
STAN: Lexx -
KAI: I'm coming back!
STAN: - blow up that
LEXX: As you command, Stan
(The Lexx powers up, and blasts
the shuttle. Unseen, the moth escapes the blast)
XEV: I guess he's
(She moves to the pedestal)
STAN: Yeah. I'll get
(Stan takes Tad's bag off the arm of the pedestal, puts it down
on the deck)
XEV: Kai is gone!
(Xev sits at the base of
the pedestal, looking down at the floor. Stan sits down on the deck, facing
STAN: Yeah. Xev - we had no choice
XEV: I know, Stan. Oh,
(They haven't noticed, but Kai is on the bridge. Quietly, he
takes a handy axe out of Tad's bag)
KAI: I have killed mothers with

STAN: Lexx, I told you to blow up the moth!
sorry, Stan. I missed
KAI: I've killed great philosophers, proud young
warriors and revolutionaries. I have killed the good, the evil, the weak and the
(Kai points at the weak and the beautiful)
I have done this in the service of His Divine Shadow and his predecessors - and
apparently, the fun never stops!
(Kai waves the axe, and jumps down
beside them. Stan and Xev scream, and hold each other)
XEV: No, me
KAI: Oh, this is sweet! Well,
we'll just have to take turns. How about I take a little bit of each - and then
a little bit more -
(Kai aims at Xev's breast)
KAI: - and
then a little bit more -
(He aims at Stan's crotch)
- and more!
(Kai raises the axe, Stan and Xev cover their heads -
( - and Kai freezes, axe raised above his
head. Warily, Xev pushes him. He falls over backwards, rigid)
He ran out of protoblood
STAN: Good timing, Kai

to normal. How? We'll never know)
STAN: This should get him back to

STAN: - Kai
XEV: I hope so. OK

with a start, grabs them by the shoulders. 790 screams)

(Kai almost smiles, then lies back in his
cryopod. Everyone breathes a sigh of relief)
