Lexx 3.12 The Beach

Kai! You gotta save me!
KAI: I'm sorry Stan, but I cannot

you mean, you can't?!
KAI: I do not float
STAN: I don't wanna

reached the Lexx. Kai and Stan hit the water. Kai sinks like a

still sinking. Stan is still floating. Xev steers the moth lower, under some

made it before, you're gonna make it this time too, I know it. Somebody - can
you hear me?! This is a bad dream - a very bad dream

STAN: Here! Here, here! Over here, help
me, I'm over here!

but Xev doesn't see him)
STAN: I'm here. This way, this way,

Stanley H... Ostral B heretic... please help me

out of sight)

STAN: Somebody help, please. Please, somebody,

790 is on the pedestal)
790: Where's Kai?
XEV: I don't
790: What do you mean, you don't know?
XEV: Stan's gone too
As if that matters. He can't be gone. It doesn't make sense, my circuits are

XEV: Kai, Stan and I
were crossing over with everyone from Girltown
790: (gasps) I saw
Lexx eat some things. They were just in front of him and he ate them. Some
balloons and -
XEV: Us. We were there too. Lexx ate the balloons and Kai and
Stan were knocked out of the moth. I think they fell down to

LEXX: Yes, captain?
790: How are you the
(Xev bends down to 790)
XEV: Stan gave me the
key when he fell out of the moth - or the key left him on its own, I don't know.
LEXX: Yes, captain?
XEV: Why did you eat the balloons?
Because I was hungry. They were delicious, but they were only a very small
snack. I am still very hungry
XEV: Can you fly now?
LEXX: I think I can,
but not very far. I need to eat much more
XEV: Do you know what happened to
LEXX: Who is Kai?
790: The most gorgeous hunk of man that ever lived!

to go back down. You have to find Kai. You have to do something!

XEV: That won't do Stan much good
790: He's a dead assassin. That means he's been
decarbonised. That means he doesn't float! And I can't bear to think about what
(790 starts to cry)
XEV: You have to keep
looking 790, please, keep looking
(Somewhere, waves are washing onto
a beach. Stan is swept ashore. He coughs, raises his head, sees a pair of boots,
and looks up - to see Prince. Stan gets up on his knees, as Prince crouches down
PRINCE: Hello, Stanley
STAN: What are you
PRINCE: I'm here because I have caught you in my net, so to
STAN: Caught me, how?
PRINCE: (laughs) We will discuss that
STAN: Where are we?
PRINCE: We are between Fire and
STAN: But there's nothing between Fire and Water. I mean, there's no,
no land on Water, there's no water on Fire, and no planets in the sky, how can,
how's that possible?
PRINCE: You made it possible
STAN: But - sometimes,
there are no planets in the sky, right? Sometimes they're out of sight on the
PRINCE: You are on the other side
STAN: OK, well, that settles
that, but, but this is a beach, I mean, did we, did we miss something somehow,
PRINCE: (laughs) No, you didn't miss anything
where am I?
PRINCE: As I said, you're between Fire and

PRINCE: But not on either one of them - not yet, anyway. Look
- here you come
(Prince points at a figure approaching them - it's
Stan, but in a white uniform)
STAN: That guy looks just like
(In the moth, Xev sees something)
790: Nothing important - just a body
790: It's a dead body - but not my dead body
Stan's body, floating face down in the water. The moth hovers, Xev opens the
XEV: Oh, Stanley. Poor, poor Stanley
Kai is still sinking - towards a light)
(The moth flies back to the Lexx.
Xev puts Stan's body in a cryopod)
790: You're wasting your
790: You are!
XEV: Got any other
(Xev gets out the protein regenerator)
Yes. Eject his carcass into space and concentrate on looking for my beloved hunk
of living death
XEV: 790, this is the deal. You have to help me fix up Stan.
Once we've taken care of him, we'll start trying to find Kai,
(Xev starts connecting the protein regenerator to Stan's
790: The protein regenerator repairs damaged flesh. It does
not bring the dead back to life
XEV: Well, Stan is damaged flesh
is destroyed flesh. He is dead
XEV: Well, we have to try
790: It's a waste
XEV: I already heard that, now are you going to help me or
790: I will do anything you ask, as long as you help me find my
XEV: Fine. Let's try
790: But it is a waste of

surrounded by a faint blue glow)
(On the beach, Prince is dancing with
Stan. Stan breaks away, and looks suspiciously at the White
STAN: Who are you?
WHITE: Stanley Tweedle
technically that could be the right answer, seeing as how you look just like me.
But I'm Stanley Tweedle
PRINCE: Let's skip the technicalities. Let's talk
STAN: I was!
(Prince puts his arms around Stan's
PRINCE: Tell me, Stanley - would you rather be on Fire,
or on Water?
STAN: Well, I'd rather be on Water of course, not that I'd ever
wanna have to make that choice
PRINCE: Don't worry, you won't. He
(Stan looks at White Stan)
PRINCE: He will decide
whether you suffer forever on Fire, or enjoy yourself forever on Water
Well, who's he and why does he get to decide?
WHITE: I'm you
therefore he knows you better than anyone else. I will argue that you should
spend eternity with me on the planet Fire. And I will make sure that you
WHITE: He's very good with pain (smiles)
STAN: OK, well, who's gonna argue that I should spend my time on Water? -
provided that's the only alternative
PRINCE: It is. And you are. You will
defend your life, and he, the other you, he will be your judge. So, Stanley -
tell me all about yourself
STAN: What, everything?
There's nothing you can hide - although there may be a few things that you might
want to explain
STAN: But -
(The three of them
start walking along the beach)
STAN: I - I've always just done what
I had to do, to get from one day to the next - more or less
PRINCE: More or
(Kai is still sinking, past more of the ghostly
(Stan's body is twitching in the cryopod)
790: No, it's not. Those are just nerves firing in response to
electrical stimulation. The man is dead
XEV: But we've repaired everything on
his body. Why isn't he alive?
790: He's not alive because he's a rotting sack
of meat, and I told you this would not work. We are wasting precious time that
could be usefully spent rejoining two hearts in love
XEV: Kai doesn't have a
heart, and nor do you
790: I have a virtual heart
XEV: No you don't, and
Kai doesn't love you
790: Yes he does!
XEV: No he doesn't! The dead don't
790: Why do you hate me?
XEV: I don't hate you
790: You do, admit
XEV: I will only admit that you are one very messed up robot
(On the beach. Stan is walking by the water, with Prince beside
him, White Stan nearby)
STAN: So then he asks us to wait outside
while he went inside and bought himself a drink. But me and my brother, we just,
you know, left him there, and by the time he came back out we were long
PRINCE: What a way to treat your best friend
STAN: Well he was being
a jerk, you know? We didn't have any money, and he wasn't going to
PRINCE: But still, you were willing to abandon your best friend because
he wouldn't share a drink of soda water with you
STAN: Yeah. You know, we
were never friends after that. I mean, something just got broken and it couldn't
be fixed. See, but at the time I told myself, you know, this is the right thing
to do, but you know, I knew it wasn't. I mean, he was just in a mood, I
shouldn't have left him there. I know how bad he must have felt when he came out
and his best friends were, you know, gone
PRINCE: Not as bad as you're going
(White Stan is listening to all of this)
You know, there hasn't been a day, a week, a month, a year that's gone by in the
rest of my entire life that I haven't thought about that and just felt bad,
wished there was some way I could make it up
PRINCE: Well, you can't. What's
done can't be undone
STAN: So - does that mean I'm gonna have to go to
PRINCE: You were only fourteen
STAN: Oh - so we're
gonna talk about the 94 Reform planets, huh? I mean, that's what's gonna do me
WHITE: That was a sin of omission. His
Divine Shadow destroyed the 94 Reform planets. If you had given up your life to
save them, we wouldn't be walking on the beach right now, you'd already be on
Water. But you chose not to be a hero, you chose to live on, and do many bad
STAN: What bad things?
PRINCE: You made many bad choices - the kind
that I prefer - when you could have made good choices
(On the Lexx,
Xev takes the cables off Stan's forehead. The cryopod closes. Xev adjusts the
790: Frozen meat. Dead meat. Stanley meat. All exactly the
same thing. You're just wasting power storing it in there
XEV: I'm the
captain now, so I can waste power if I want to. Come on 790, let's
(Xev picks up 790)
790: Where are we going?
790: Excellent idea
STAN: From the time I arrived on the
Cluster, until the time I played a very significant role in the destruction of
the Divine Order, nothing much happened - I mean, in my life. On a personal
PRINCE: Nothing comes to mind that you did wrong?
STAN: Well, I'm
sure there musta - might have been a few small things but there's nothing I can
remember, that well
STAN: Nothing springs to
PRINCE: That's funny. A few things are springing into my mind
PRINCE: Yes. They spring in, and then - they spring out

corridor, with drones in pursuit. Stan tries a door)

PRINCE: Selfish behaviour, don't you think?
STAN: Oh come on, I didn't even know who she was!
STAN: Look, she coulda been a killer or something! I mean, besides, you
know, that was all just a reflex action
(White Stan looks at
STAN: OK, fine, I admit it! Maybe I didn't do the best thing,
but I was in a panic, now you're not gonna condemn me for that
Stan thinks about this)
PRINCE: He doesn't have
STAN: What do you mean?
PRINCE: You'll see
his arm, and another image from I Worship His Shadow appears. On the bridge of
the Lexx, Stan runs from Zev, into Giggerota)
GIG: I want to eat the
STAN: Ladies - I've got the hand, the key to the Lexx. It only does
what I tell it, remember?
(Zev and Giggerota back off. Stan gets up
on the pedestal, and sees a ship on the view screen)
STAN: Ah -
LEXX: His Shadow's personal flagship, the MegaShadow, and the
Cluster's 24th attack wing
STAN: Er - Lexx, could you please destroy them, if
you don't mind?
LEXX: I cannot fulfil your command. They are forces under the
immediate direction of His Divine Shadow
KAI: And you are not permitted to
(Stan puts his hands up)
STAN: I'm security
guard 4th class Stanley Tweedle, and I've been captured by these escaped
prisoners, and I'm surrendering the Lexx, and I truly worship His Divine
GIG: You waste of skin!
(She goes for
PRINCE: You knew who Xev was then, didn't you?
PRINCE: And yet you still did not hesitate to betray her
STAN: I was
stalling for time, really
WHITE: No. You were afraid of
PRINCE: Whereas you should have been afraid of what would happen after
STAN: So you're saying that I've gotta go to Fire now, is that
(Prince strokes Stan's cheek. Stan doesn't like
PRINCE: Not at all. You've done many things that are far worse
than that in your little lifetime
(Xev and 790 are in a moth, flying over the
XEV: How can you tell?
790: It's a robot
location kind of thing
XEV: What's that?
790: I don't know, it just is. I
know that this is the spot where you found the dead security guard's
XEV: But how do you know that? there is nothing to make any reference
to, just open water
790: (wails) First I lose my man, and then
everybody starts to pick on me!
XEV: I'm not picking on you, I just asked you
790: You hate me!
XEV: 790, I already told you, I don't hate
790: You love him, don't you?
790: I knew it. I knew it,
I knew it! You're in love with my dead man!
XEV: Look, 790 - I will admit
that once I had some - in fact, quite a lot of feelings for Kai. It didn't go
anywhere, because it couldn't. I'm alive and he's dead, so I've tried to move
790: You've tried, but you haven't succeeded. You're trying to steal my

He sinks down past him, closer to the light, which is brighter now)
moth hovers over the water. Xev is holding some gadget)
XEV: Are you
sure this is the spot?
790: Would I steer you wrong?
XEV: I don't know,
you might want no-one to have him if you can't
790: I love him completely,
XEV: In your special 790 way, you do
790: Then I want us to find
my man - desperately!
XEV: I believe you
(Xev drops the gadget
into the water - it's attached to a long string from a bag which Xev holds in
her hands. The gadget sinks, beeping as it goes)
790: When we catch
him, promise you'll let him be mine, and mine alone
Xev, I'm begging you
790: I'll humiliate myself. I'll do
790: Then I'm going to kill myself
790: Yes I will!
XEV: No you won't - because you can't. You're a
robot head. You cannot even move if I don't pick you up
790: Then throw me
over the side!
790: Please, Xev. I can't stand to live another
minute longer, knowing that you're trying to steal my man away
XEV: I'm not
trying to steal your man away
790: You're not?
XEV: No. I'm just fishing
for him - like you. Who knows if either one of us will catch his fish?
So I have a chance?
XEV: Yes, 790, you have a chance. Not much of one, but a
tiny little robot head in love chance to make his dead man dreams come
790: I'm so happy!
(Kai is still falling, but now the water
around him is empty of people)
(Xev's gadget stops
XEV: Oh no - we're out of rope
STAN: You're not taking everything into account. I did good
things too. Can you make them appear?
PRINCE: You can, if you can think of

Divine Shadow is attacking Kai. Zev starts breaking brains - so does

the image, the destruction of the Divine Predecessors brains distracts His
Shadow, and Kai fires his brace into His Shadow's head)
STAN: It was
me and Xev. If we hadn't been destroying those brains, Kai never would have got
his chance to kill the Divine Shadow. See, so I helped destroy the Divine Shadow
and rid the universe of the Divine Order. Now, that's gotta count for
PRINCE: I'd say she acted very bravely
STAN: Well, so did
PRINCE: Going along with her brave act was a good choice, I admit Stanley,
most unusual for you
STAN: But I did it. I did help
WHITE: Yes you did.
And that will cancel out some of your wrong choices
STAN: OK. So, I mean,
that's gotta mean that I get to go to Water
PRINCE: Not at
(White Stan grins)
PRINCE: The best part - from my
point of view, anyway - is yet to come. Remember this?
in the sky - from 3.5 Gondola. The gondola is sinking over the red hot
KAI2: It's at the maximum
FIFI: It's the red hot sea. If we
don't get more flame, we're gonna crash and burn
KAI2: That's all there
STAN: OK, then we have to lose weight now
KAI2: So - who's going to
volunteer to die?
STAN: I volunteer him
FIFI: I volunteer you
It's our balloon. We picked you up, and you got some extra free life, so come on
Fifi, do the right thing, come on, over the side, come on
STAN: OK, come
on Fifi - you lost the vote, take it easy
FIFI: No, no, you jump
not gonna jump
FIFI: I'm not jumping
STAN: Come on - if you're not gonna
jump we'll just have to throw you over
FIFI: Forget it!
(Kai2 and Stan pull Fifi to the edge)
please, I'm begging you. You can't just kill me, snuff out my life like it was
nothing. Hey - and if Duke's right, and there is another life, you all might
have to pay for this wrong
(On the beach, Prince smiles. Stan looks
uncomfortable. The image continues)
KAI2: I thought you didn't
STAN: We don't have a choice, Fifi, come on
FIFI: No! Killing
is wrong - there's gotta be a way. OK, so we don't think there's enough fuel.
Well, maybe the wind'll change direction or something. You can't just take away
a man's precious life because there isn't enough wind!
STAN: Come on Fifi,
(He tries to prise Fifi's hands of the net. Fifi bites Stan's
(White Stan looks at
(On the gondola, Xev looks at Fifi)
XEV: I don't know,
Stan. I don't know if I can throw him over the side either
STAN: You're going
crazy on me again, Xev. Look, just be practical for once. What good is it gonna
do if we all crash and burn? Look, come on Kai, gimmee a hand here
if killing someone is wrong, then it's wrong
Look. There's just so much to choose from
(Another image, from 2.9
791. Xev is down on a planet, talking on the squawker)
this is Xev. We've found somebody alive, could be more
STAN: Somebody, what
kind of somebody?
XEV: A female somebody
(The image shows a
picture of the girl prisoner, Desh. Stan gets up on the
STAN: Female - is she attractive?
XEV: Is that all that
matters to you?
STAN: Yeah, pretty much
XEV: Bye, Stan
STAN: No, wait,
(On the beach, Stan puts his hands on his
STAN: But what's so wrong about that?
PRINCE: Does the word
selfish mean anything to you?
STAN: Oh, come on, that's small. What do you
expect, perfection? Look, I was just being a guy, with needs, you know, like any
(Stan punches Prince in the chest, playfully - and realises
this approach won't help matters)
STAN: Anyway, OK look, I already
paid for that
STAN: Well, I was almost raped by a robot
PRINCE: Only almost. And what about this?
from 2.12 Norb. Stan, Xev and Kai are in a moth)
XEV: 790 is an
electronic device, won't he be destroyed too?
STAN: 790's mini-brain is not
an electronic circuit and so it shouldn't be destroyed, isn't that the part that
KAI: 790 is a hybrid - part human, but mostly machine. Any pulse
that destroyed the drones would certainly destroy 790
Lexx is about to die here, and we're about to die with it. We can't stop to save
a robot head!
STAN: But we did stop, we went back for the stupid robot
head. We almost got killed in the process
PRINCE: But would you have gone
back if Xev hadn't pushed you?
STAN: Look, I didn't want to go back inside
the Lexx because it wasn't sensible. We were risking Xev's life too and I didn't
want her to die, anymore than I wanted me to die. And somebody had to be
practical on her behalf, because she never is!
(Stan looks at White
Stan, who seems to agree with him)
STAN: There, see, I was
PRINCE: I don't agree, but I will concede the point
good. We're finally starting to move this process in the right
PRINCE: That direction is about to change
STAN: Oh, so what are
we going to talk about now, me losing the amino acid codes that caused 94 Reform
planets to be destroyed?
(Prince shakes his head. Stan
STAN: Then what?
STAN: Well, I don't remember anything else that I did that
was especially wrong - anything big, that is
(He whispers in Stan's ear)
PRINCE: I was

next to May's body)
MAY: (echoes) I would have liked you
Stanley. I know I would have
I would have liked you Stanley. I know I would
have. I know I would have. I know I would have

gets out of the cryopod)
STAN: May? May? May? May, are you
MAY: Am I here Stanley? Am I? I am here for you Stanley, if you want
me to be

STAN: May? May, are

for you if you want her to be

PRINCE: She's there Stanley. She's there for you if you
want her to be
STAN: Prince, what are you doing here? You're, you're dead,
PRINCE: Do you want her, Stanley?
STAN: What - what are you
PRINCE: Do you want May? Do you want her to be there, to be
alive and yours, yours alone?
STAN: I dunno. What are you talking about, what
are you saying?
PRINCE: I'm saying, do you want May to be alive and yours, or
STAN: Well, um, but she's -
PRINCE: She's dead, yes - but she does
not have to be dead, if you don't want her to be
STAN: But how?
You saw me die, hmm? Do you want May to live, Stanley?
STAN: Yes, yes I want
May to live and be mine alone
PRINCE: Good. Then you and I will make a

PRINCE: I will give you May. And in return, you will
agree to use this ship, the Lexx, to help me to destroy the planet
STAN: But there are people on the planet Water
PRINCE: Yes there are
STAN: Can they leave?
PRINCE: No. They must also be destroyed
along with the planet
STAN: When would I have to do this?
PRINCE: As soon
as you can
STAN: No. No, I can't. I mean, I can't destroy an entire planet
and everybody on it for, for just one person
PRINCE: That's a good decision.
You've passed the test
(On the beach, Prince
PRINCE: Only temporarily, or you wouldn't be
STAN: Does this mean May will live now?
PRINCE: No, no. This
means May, will stay as she is. She will remain dead
PRINCE: Oh - here
comes the best part
(Stan looks at May. Prince has
STAN: Prince? Prince? Prince? I agree. I'll use the Lexx
to blow up Water if May can live. I agree! Prince? Prince!

STAN: May? You're

PRINCE: That will be a very costly kiss - for you,
(He looks away, and walks away from Prince. Prince
PRINCE: What, no?
(Prince walks in front of
him, and Stan turns back)
STAN: No, I did not destroy Water. Water
was not blown up
PRINCE: Stanley, you're not being condemned for destroying
the 94 Reform planets, because that is not something that you wanted to happen -
(Prince stops Stan)
PRINCE: - although it did happen and
arguably it is your fault
(Stan turns back again)
No, I did not want it to happen and it didn't happen! Water was not blown up, by
me or by anybody
(Prince puts his hand on Stan's
PRINCE: But you would have done it. You wanted it to
(Prince raises his hand. Another image appears, from
3.3 Gametown. Stan is on the control pedestal)
STAN: Lexx - how long
LEXX: We will be directly aimed at the water planet in 10 seconds. 9. 8.
STAN: Lexx -
LEXX: 5. 4
STAN: I command you to -
suddenly appears beside the pedestal)
LEXX: 3. 2. 1
STAN: Lexx, I command you to -
(Xev gets up on the pedestal)
LEXX: Zero. We are
now directly aimed at the water planet, Stan
STAN: Stay out of this,
XEV: Stay out of what?
STAN: Whatever it is I'm doing
what's that, huh?
(Xev grabs hold of Stan's
STAN: Let me go Xev. You don't know what's going on
STAN: I command you to -
(Xev pulls Stan off the pedestal
and starts to choke him)
XEV: What are you up to, Stanley Tweedle?
You tell me what it is right now, or I'm going to squeeze the life out of you.
Are you going to tell me or not?
(Stan shakes his head. Xev carries
XEV: Are you going to tell me. No?
XEV: All right
(Xev loosens her grip - and
Stan seizes the opportunity)
STAN: Lexx - blow up the water planet
LEXX: As you command, Stan
(Lexx powers up and fires a beam.
The view screen shows the beam harmlessly passing the planet Water. Stan is back
on the pedestal, rubbing at his throat)

missed. We had passed the position where I was pointed directly at the

STAN: Look - it was a moment of passion, OK? I was
acting crazy, I couldn't help myself
PRINCE: (shouts) A moment of
passion, was it? A little, tiny moment of insanity, that came and went in an
instant? Or was it a cold-blooded attempt at mass murder, that came within a
hair's breadth of success?
(Another image from Gametown. Stan is
asleep next to May's cryopod. Prince strokes his face, waking
(Prince raises Stan
PRINCE: You did not destroy the water planet, Stanley
tried, but Xev stopped me. Does this mean May is gonna die now?
That's up to you. I will give you one more chance. You will destroy Water the
next time this ship is pointed at it, or May will be gone from you
STAN: And if I do?
PRINCE: Then she will live, and be yours for
the rest of your life
(Xev comes into the
cryochamber - but Prince has disappeared)
STAN: What is it
XEV: Stan - I thought I heard something
What a tragedy. You didn't get the girl. But she certainly got
(Prince holds Stan's chin, tilts it up to make him look at the
image in the sky. Gametown again)
LEXX: We will be there in two
(On the beach, Stan doesn't want to
(Xev pushes Prince aside, curls up like a Cluster lizard, and
rolls out of her bedchamber. On the bridge, Stan activates the template. Xev
rolls rapidly through the passageways)
STAN: Lexx, I command you -
(Xev rolls onto the bridge and grabs Stan)
think so, Stanley
(She throws him to the ground and gets on top of
him, smothering him with her breasts)
XEV: We're not going to
destroy a planet, we're not going to kill people we don't know, we are not going
to kill Kai anymore than he's already dead, you hear me?
STAN: Lexx - I
command you to -
XEV: No, Stanley! We're not going to destroy the planet, do
you hear me?
STAN: OK Xev, yes, I hear you, I agree, I agree. Just let me up
so I can breathe
XEV: Stanley, ask the Lexx if he is past the point where he
can destroy the planet. Ask him Stanley, and there is no point in trying
(Xev raises herself off Stan
STAN: Lexx? Lexx - are you still pointed at the
LEXX: Yes I am, Stan. I will be aimed at the water planet for 6 more
seconds. 5. 4
STAN: Lexx -
(Xev flattens herself against Stan
again. He struggles to get up)
XEV: Don't even try!
LEXX: 3. 2.
1. We are no longer aimed at the water planet
(Xev gets up. Stan
rolls onto his stomach, gasping for air)
(On the beach, Stan looks at
White Stan - who is now wearing a black uniform)
STAN: But I didn't
know that it was the planet where all the good people went after they died. I
didn't know it was so important
PRINCE: No matter. You knew that it was a
planet with people on it, and you were willing to commit mass murder for your
own selfish personal pleasure. True, Stanley Tweedle?

PRINCE: That's nice
(Prince strokes Stan's
PRINCE: But it is not a reason to kill. And that is all I have
(Prince walks away)
PRINCE: I will see you later,
(Prince raises his arms, and disappears. Black Stan
disappears too. The beach gradually vanishes, and Stan is left floating against
a red background, with other lost souls)
(Sunset on Water. In the moth,
790 is sobbing)
790: We can't give up now!
XEV: We're not giving
up, 790. It just wasn't the right spot. We'll try other places when it gets
790: It was the right spot, I'm sure. That was exactly where we
found the security guard's carcass
XEV: We didn't find Kai
sobs. Xev pats his casing)
XEV: Don't worry, 790, we'll find him
(Underwater, Kai dissolves into the light - and reappears on
a bed. He wakes up and walks out of the room, into a familiar courtyard. Kai is
on Gametown. He watches the people playing the game for a moment - they ignore
him. Kai walks onto the balcony, and sees the moth. He puts his fingers in his
mouth and whistles)
790: What was that?
790: I have
enhanced hearing, and I just heard him
790: Who else but the
greatest man who ever died?!
(The moth turns. Xev
790: I am in robot heaven
(790 has hearts in his
eyes. The moth flies into the sunset, towards Gametown)
