Lexx 2.13 Twilight
(written by Paul Donovan, Lex Gigeroff, Jeffrey Hirschfield)
(A courtyard, at night. Hands burst through the door, but a
man -Roda- drives them off with a flaming torch. He is joined by his wife,
HIDEA: They're getting in
RODA: I can see that, I have
HIDEA: I know you can see it
RODA: Look, I'm gonna need more wood,
OK? And bigger pieces - this is burning down
HIDEA: Where do you think I'm
going to get wood? We're already after burning every stick of furniture in this
(Their gothy daughter Lomea arrives)
Lomea, sweetheart. Help your mother find some wood, OK baby?
none left. We're all gonna die
HIDEA: For once in your life would you just do
something that somebody asked you?
LOMEA: We've used everything
LOMEA: Find something yourself!
RODA: Use your heart!
That's made of wood, isn't it?
LOMEA: Get the robot to look
robot is 792. Looks like 790, but with a body, wearing tights, a tunic - and a
792: Certainly, miss
RODA: No, he's too slow, we don't
have time for him
792: No, no, no, we don't have time
HIDEA: Don't make me
put my hands on you. Now - this is a matter of life and death, missy
don't care. I've had enough of this
HIDEA: Get over here, you sack of
LOMEA: Don't call me a sack of pus!
HIDEA: Sack of pus. Sack of pus,
pus, pus. Sack of pus!
LOMEA: You're the ones who got us stuck here - and
that's only because everyone you've ever met knows you're such creeps!
Lomea!? I'm gonna burn myself
LOMEA: I wish you were dead. I wish I were
RODA: Look, we're all gonna be dead if you don't get off your adolescent
ass and find some wood!
LOMEA: I hate you! Both of you!
HIDEA: I really don't mind when she calls me a creep,
but I don't like it when she uses those terms to refer to you
HIDEA: I just wish for once she'd call you what you really are - beyond
repulsion. A DNA disaster, a mewling mass of mucky, - blech - a bald-headed bobo
- Honey, let's face it - "creep" is a little bit of a compliment to you
Why, I oughta burn you, you castrating shrew
HIDEA: Too bad we're running out
of wood, isn't it?
(On the bridge of the Lexx. Stan is lying asleep
on the floor. Xev and 790 are watching him)
(Stan just mumbles incoherently)
XEV: I think you'd
be more comfortable in your bed, Stan. Stanley?
XEV: How long has he been asleep?
790: 9 hours, 23
minutes and 13 seconds, dream girl
XEV: He doesn't look good. I'm worried
790: I'm not
(Back in the courtyard, hands come through
the door and grab Roda's neck)
HIDEA: Lomea's right.
Look, there's no point in fighting anymore, we might as well just lie down and
die out of it
(The sun comes up, over an island surrounded by a vast
ocean. The hands let go of Roda, and retreat)
RODA: Hidea, Hidea -
once again the sun has come up, and we didn't get eaten!
HIDEA: Oh, isn't
that great? What's your big plan for tomorrow night, baldie?
(Roda does a little dance)
RODA: I love you, sun. I
love you, sun. I love you so much, sun. Lay your beams on me
cryochamber. Stan is in a cryopod being examined by 790, while Xev and Kai
790: Stanley Tweedle has an elevated level of hydrogen
peroxide in his blood. He is suffering from skeletal and muscular degeneration,
and his immune system has broken down. Furthermore, he stinks. It is unlikely
that he will live much longer. I suggest we wake up Lyekka so that she can eat
(Xev hits 790)
KAI: I believe Lyekka prefers healthy
living things. Stanley may not be acceptable to her in this state
causing his condition, 790?
790: I have no idea
XEV: Are you telling me
790: Of course, Xevolicious. If Tweedle dies, then you will be the
only living protein left for Lyekka to consume, so it is temporarily in my
interest for the security guard to remain alive
XEV: Then what's wrong with
790: I do not contain a full complement of bio-diagnostic data - but I
do gotta a whole lotta love
KAI: His ailment is unusual. I too
cannot precisely determine its cause. We must seek specialised help
XEV: Stan? Stanley. Talk to us,
Stan. If he dies, we can't control the Lexx
(Inside their tower,
Lomea is holding a foil collar round her neck, trying to get a tan. Hidea is
lying down looking at her jewels while 792 gives her a foot
HIDE: Before I die, Lomea, I want to give you these pearls
- but I can't, because I love them so much!
(Roda arrives, with a
tatty wicker basket)
RODA: Look at this - wood!
HIDEA: Oh, you're
doing a really good job there, Roda. I think that basket is really going to
protect us from them
RODA: Well at least I'm doing something. Sun's gonna set
tonight, like it does every night, and one of us is trying to do
HIDEA: And you know, I'd like to thank you from the pit of my
heart, but what difference does it make? - We are all going to die! Now could
you please sit down out of it for a moment, so I could enjoy my last few minutes
on this benighted hellhole? (to 792) Did I say harder to you? Harder,
did I say harder?
RODA: Lomea, what are you doing?
LOMEA: I wanna look
good when I die!
RODA: There's not enough sun for that, sweetheart
RODA: Hey, don't start in now, OK, I've had enough of both of you.
Chip in here
HIDEA: Did you hear her? She said shut up
RODA: You shut
HIDEA: You shut up!
RODA: Shut up!
(Their squabbling is
interrupted by the squawking of a mechanical owl, which is receiving a message
from the Lexx)
XEV: Can anybody hear me? Can anybody hear me? This
is a medical emergency. We are the crew of the Lexx. Our captain is critically
ill with an unknown condition, and we seek help
RODA: This is it! This is it!
This is it! This is it! Our ticket off this hellhole
LOMEA: Took long
(Roda hugs Lomea, then kisses Hidea - who is
HIDEA: Oh, please. Please, don't ever, ever, touch me
like that again, please
RODA: Lomea - get your father's cape
are all on their best behaviour as they appear on the Lexx's view
RODA: Hello, Lexx. I am Roda, High Governor of the planet
KAI: I know the planet Ruma
KAI: I have the memories of
the last Divine Shadow, and he knew the planet well
RODA: Also, a very
experienced medical type person
HIDEA: Hello. I'm Hidea. Did you know that
Ruma has long been famous for its health giving properties, that emanate up from
the minerals deep in the planet's soil?
XEV: Is what they are saying
KAI: It is not untrue
RODA: Yes, for years now, many of the rich and
powerful have been coming here to participate in the holistic elements that are
in the ground here. If we can't help you, you're probably dead already!
Do you have diagnostic medical equipment?
RODA: Oh, yes. This is my robot
792, fully equipped with all of the latest biological data circuitry and probing
790: He certainly has a nice body
HIDEA: We will transmit our
KAI: There is no need. We know where Ruma is
RODA/HIDEA: We'll be waiting for you!
XEV: Is Ruma dangerous?
KAI: It - may have been,
before the Divine Order collapsed, but it should not be dangerous now. In any
event - we do not have much choice
XEV: You're right. Come on, Stanley. Come
on, get up
(Kai and Xev manoeuvre Stan onto the
XEV: Stanley - you have to help us to get you to planet
STAN: No room - all full up
XEV: Stanley, tell the Lexx to go where
Kai directs him
STAN: Tell Lexx? Tell Lexx, tell Lexx
XEV: Stanley, say
"Lexx, go to Ruma"
STAN: Lexx -
XEV: - go to Ruma
STAN: - go to
XEV: - Ruma
LEXX: As you command, Stan
reach Ruma. Xev, Kai and Stan take a moth down to the island)
Whenever a Divine Shadow died, his brain was removed, and his body was sent to
Ruma for burial
XEV: Why Ruma?
KAI: The planet's core contains an unusual
combination of elements which emit an isotopic frequency of low level radiation
that - somehow manages to keep the bodies in a semi-living state
Radiation. Will it affect us?
KAI: It is not known to affect the
(Kai is playing with his hair. The moth lands in the
courtyard, where the family is waiting)
RODA: Come, my pretty
(Xev gets out of the moth)
RODA: High Governor Roda,
commander in chief, and keeper of the Divine Ossory at your service. This is my
wife, Lady Hidea, and my daughter, Lomea. And the medicinal robot, 792
Pleased to make your acquaintance, ma'am
HIDEA: Welcome to
(Hidea shakes hands with Xev)
HIDEA: So glad to make
LOMEA: We're very glad you're here
XEV: My name is
XEV: Yes. Xev of B3K. And you are
commander in chief of - who?
RODA: Well, since the collapse of the Divine
Order, all of my fellow clerics have left their post, leaving my humble self and
my beloved wife, and my beautiful daughter all by our lonesome to deal with the
- deceased -
HIDEA: Take care of the Divine Predecessors
RODA: - the dead
(Kai jumps out of the moth)
KAI: The - billowing,
RODA: This man has the uniform of a Divine
XEV: A former Divine Assassin - he's with us now
RODA: Former, ha
ha. Well - then I guess we'll just take your captain in and, er, give him mouth
to mouth, or something. But we'll work on him
(Kai pats Roda on the
KAI: The burning hills
RODA: The burning hills?
LOMEA: I like your dress
XEV: Thanks. It's lizard skin
Lizards are cool - especially their tongues
(Inside the tower. Stan
is on a bed being checked by 792. Kai is sitting at a window)
The billowing clouds that puff and flower
Are calling me to an ancient
XEV: Kai, what are you doing?
KAI: I must sing my song
(Kai jumps out of the window)
Kai! I think we'd better have your robot check on Kai too. He's been acting
strangely ever since we got here
LOMEA: Everybody acts strange around
HIDEA: I think he's quite - charming
LOMEA: Who cares about him
XEV: I care about him
LOMEA: Do you do it with
(Hidea drags Lomea away, but she goes back to
(Kai is sprawled on the ground. He picks
himself up, does a forward roll, and starts shadow boxing)
792: I've completed my analysis of your captain, madam. He has an
elevated hydrogen peroxide level, and his immune system is failing
we know that, but what's causing it?
792: I will have to perform a blood
HIDEA: Where'd he get those shoes?
(Meanwhile, Kai dances,
goes out through the gates, and picks some wild flowers)
captain is deficient in the element of -
RODA: Excuse me for just a second.
I'd like to have a little conversation with Xev
Since the collapse of the
Divine Order - how can I put this? - our situation has been, um, em -
RODA: - it has been delicate
LOMEA: What he means to say is that
he got us stuck on this hell and we want off
RODA: Lomea darling, why don't
you go pick your pimples, OK?
(Lomea backs off)
is cute, isn't she? What I mean is - ah -
HIDEA: When everyone else
abandoned their post on this hideous planet, my husband was rewarded for his
loyalty by being left behind
XEV: I'm surprised they didn't kill you
Who, me? Why would anybody do that, kill me?
XEV: The Divine Order were hated
by everyone - and you worked for them
RODA: On a lonely outpost
in a very very lowly position
LOMEA: Very lowly
RODA: And no way deserving
HIDEA: Exactly, and now, what we would like to establish, is if we
take care of your medical problem -
XEV: Mm hm?
HIDEA: What will you do
XEV: What do you want?
RODA: Well - to be truthful with you, we
would like it if you could take us away from all of this
XEV: Sure - but to
where? I thought that former clerics from the Divine Order were not that welcome
HIDEA: Oh no. We have many friends, on many many many planets -
HIDEA: - who will be glad, glad to have us
RODA: They'd be
XEV: Fine, we'll take you to the nearest one then
RODA: We agree then
- oh, I love your hair. Oh, robot!
XEV: Yes, please, how is
792: He is deficient in the element selenium
792: A trace element required by certain species such as human
beings to create specific enzymes that break down hydrogen peroxide. It is
unusual that his diet would be deficient in it. What does he eat?
food which is provided by our ship, the Lexx. It feeds us with stuff that it
792: Clearly the Lexx's food supply does not contain selenium
Is the condition fatal?
792: Yes. If he does not get selenium soon, he will
XEV: So where do we get it?
792: High Commander Roda's dandruff
shampoo contains selenium. You must feed it to your captain
RODA: Er, excuse me - my shampoo?
792: It will be an effective
therapy - if consumed in time
RODA: My shampoo?
(Xev is pouring
shampoo onto a spoon)
RODA: Please - don't use it all, OK?
Well, there's not much there
792: He won't require much
HIDEA: If there's
a problem with the food, why isn't it bothering you?
XEV: Oh - we all have
(Xev spoon feeds Stan the
XEV: Very different, in fact
(Roda and Hidea have moved into another room to talk
HIDEA: Nobody is gonna take us in. We don't have any
RODA: I know that
HIDEA: I know you know that. It's because we're
part of your stupid Divine Order. Wherever we go, we'll be killed
HIDEA: Yes. Yes! Now listen. It's obvious, isn't it?
HIDEA: We take the ship and leave them here to feed the animals
I don't know
HIDEA: What? You don't know?
HIDEA: Do you have a better plan?
RODA: Well, why don't
we just get off the freaking planet before we start getting ambitious?
This is our only chance. You saw that the assassin has been affected by the rays
from the planet! If we're in control of the ship, then we are in
(Outside, Kai is trying to compose a poem)
Swings. Spins. Turns
LOMEA: Now what?
HIDEA: Well, we wait until he
gets better, I suppose - right?
792: He has swallowed enough of the shampoo.
It will take some time to have effect
HIDEA: You know - I think he looks
HIDEA: Xev, is it? Why don't you let me show you
XEV: What's there to see?
HIDEA: Not much - but we've got
quite a bit of time to waste. Now, if there's any change in the patient, contact
us immediately, do you understand?
792: Yes, Lady Hidea
HIDEA: And Lomea -
make us some food. We're going on a picnic
XEV: Erm - actually, I'm not very
LOMEA: What food?
don't know, darling, throw something together
(Kai walks across a
bridge towards a cliff)
(Xev and the family
are all outside, close to the gate)
HIDEA: I love a
(Lomea brings her a frying pan)
HIDEA: Well, thank
(Then Lomea squeezes herself in next to
HIDEA: Oh, well - we're running a little short on food
We've practically no meat at all
LOMEA: I wouldn't say that
XEV: Why did
they send the bodies of the dead Divine Shadows here?
RODA: I don't know.
They got a thing about the dead, I think
HIDEA: Well, for
whatever it was they wanted them for
RODA: You never asked questions of the
Divine Order, you just did what they told you to do, otherwise you ended up in
the protein bank
XEV: Or they turned you into a love slave
LOMEA: You got
the love slave treatment?
XEV: Yes. Yes, I got the looks and the accelerated
libido, but I missed the personality adjustment. The robot who worked on me got
LOMEA: I have an accelerated libido
XEV: Oh yeah? So you know how
frustrating it can be when there's no men around
sighs. Roda holds his nose while he eats)
XEV: Well, I should go and
check on Stan
RODA: No, no, no no
HIDEA: No, my love. You just relax.
Lomea and I will do that
LOMEA: Why me?
HIDEA: Because, mommy's little
darling doe, that's what mommy wants you to do
LOMEA: Well I wanna stay
HIDEA: But we're going to go see the captain
(Hidea drags Lomea inside. Roda laughs)
today, huh? Another sunset on Ruma - we never take them for granted
really should go and see Stanley for myself
starts to head towards the tower, so Roda jumps up)
RODA: Oh my god!
The assassin, he's fallen off the cliff!
Where? I don't see him
(Xev looks over the edge. It's sunset. Roda
runs back through the gate, locking it behind him. Xev gives
XEV: Hey! Hey, what's going on?
(Hidea looks down
from the top of the wall)
HIDEA: What's going on, miss cutey pie, is
we're taking your moth and we're flying away without you
XEV: We made a
HIDEA: I know, and we broke it
XEV: Kai? Kai, where are you?
He can't help you, sweetheart
XEV: What about Stanley? I need to see
HIDEA: Gosh golly gee - I forgot! Here!
(792 brings Stan to
the top of the wall)
RODA: Would you like him desperately? Here he
HIDEA: He's all yours
(They throw Stan off the
XEV: Stan. Stanley. You can't leave without us. You can't fly
the Lexx without Stanley, he's the only one who's got the key
RODA: Like I
really believe that too, huh? Listen, you have a good night, OK, 'cause it's
gonna be your last
HIDEA: Oh, and remember - you can run, but you can't hide.
They are going to get you
XEV: Who is they?
RODA: They are looking for
their din-dins, and that's you, sweetheart
HIDEA: And tonight, you're the
main course on the menu
XEV: You're very bad people
RODA: Oh, that
HIDEA: I'd love to hang around and chat, but we've gotta go. Packing
and all that. Ta ta!
XEV: Come on, get up
XEV: Help me, please
STAN: Oh, I don't feel good
grilles at the front of tombs are pushed off by zombies wearing the robes of His
Divine Shadow. The zombies start walking towards Stan and Xev)
What are they?
(Kai has crawled to the top of the
cliff, still holding wildflowers. He sees a lily, which he cuts from the rocks
with his brace. He stands at the edge of the cliff)
KAI: Where no
thing is shall nothing be
Only then - will I be free
(He looks at
the lily - throws the other flowers over the edge)
(Hidea and Roda are
busy packing cases)
RODA: Where's Lomea?
HIDEA: I don't know.
She's probably sulking around somewhere, lurking - Lomea!
zombies re getting closer to Stan and Xev)
STAN: What do they
STAN: Dinner? - but we don't have any dinner
STAN: What - we're what, we're dinner?
Them? Oh boy
(They back against the gate, and start pushing at it as
the zombies approach)
STAN: Where's Kai?
(Kai is now wearing the lily in his hair, and playing with a
KAI: The wheel it turns, it comes around
It makes an
ancient rumbling sound
(Kai laughs, moves the jawbone so the skull
(On the Lexx, Lyekka emerges from her pod)
Lyekka! You're awake!
LYEKKA: I am hungry. I have to eat
Unfortunately Stanley Tweedle is not here, but if he were, he'd make an
excellent main course
LYEKKA: where is Stanley?
790: He and my darling
delightful delicious Xev have gone down to the planet with the dead
LYEKKA: What planet?
790: That one
(Lyekka looks at the
planet on the view screen, pulls a face)
LYEKKA: It does not look
790: I have been waiting for my Xev-orific to communicate with me,
but have heard nothing
(Lyekka picks up the
LYEKKA: Hello? Can anybody hear me? Is anybody there?
(Kai answers her)
KAI: The wheel it turns, it
It makes an ancient rumbling sound
LYEKKA: This is not
790: Where's Xev?!
(Xev and Stan are battling
STAN: Get back!
XEV: They're not very strong, you can
LYEKKA: More importantly - where is food?
(A zombie bites Xev on her neck. 792 opens the gate, letting
the zombies enter the courtyard)
HIDEA: You know, you can't just
leave her behind
RODA: I'm not leaving her behind, she's leaving herself
HIDEA: Here, look - and give me a hand with this bag, it's
RODA: You carry it yourself! I'm getting a hernia from this one. Get
792 to help you, please. I've had enough of you
HIDEA: I don't know where he

HIDEA: Look - they're eating the moth
must have let them in
792: Yes sir. I did, sir
(792 - or rather,
just his head - is on the ground)
792: I'm sorry to have displeased you, sir
RODA: Are you insane?!
Why would you open the gate?
792: I was only following my primary function,
which is to care for the former His Shadows
RODA: And look what happened,
they ate you
792: No sir. The plant woman did
HIDEA: What are you talking
about, stupid head?
792: She's a plant, and she ate me. That's all I know,
except to say that, the experience was strangely pleasant
792: Will there be anything else, sir?
(Roda kicks 792, then he
and Hidea head back to the tower - but Lomea has locked the
RODA: Lomea, open the door now, honey
What do you mean, no?
LOMEA: I wanted to leave without you and fly away with
Xev, but the moth's gone now, so there's no way off
HIDEA: Open the
RODA: Lomea, this is not funny. They're gonna eat me,
HIDEA: Sweetie, darling doe, you don't wanna watch mommy and daddy
LOMEA: We're all gonna die. At least I get to watch you die
HIDEA: Open the door, darling, listen to mommy
LOMEA: No, no,
HIDEA: Open the door
LOMEA: No, no, you're bad, no!
gonna eat me, Lomea
(Roda throws his suitcase at the
RODA: Try the suitcase, it's fibre - here!
(Stan and Xev are still struggling)
STAN: Get up,
Xev, go on
(Most of the zombies are now through the gate into the
STAN: Back, back - there's too many of 'em Xev. There's
too many. Back!
(Stan and Xev follow the zombies into the courtyard -
then see the moth)
STAN: Oh boy. Oh no, no, no, no. Oh, stupid
zombies! They ate the moth!
XEV: Good work, ladies
HIDEA: Look - get
(Hidea throws a suitcase at Xev, and the zombies follow like
RODA: My suitcase - tasty
He's got the only squawker
STAN: Oh, great!
(Stan and Xev leave, ahead of the zombies. Roda drops his other
HIDEA: OK. Leave it, or I leave you
RODA: I'm not
leaving my hair products
(Hidea runs - straight into a zombie. She
pushes it out of the courtyard and shuts the gate, though some of the zombies
are still inside)
792: Nice move, Lady Hidea
Xev are walking across the bridge to the cliff)
STAN: Xev - what's
XEV: This bite stings
STAN: Well, just keep it together Xev,
KAI: The wheel doth turn, it rolls around
(Kai is now
sitting on the ground, with two skulls. Stan and Xev arrive)
Gather round the wheel, my friends
And make amends, and make amends
Kai, what's the matter with you?
KAI: All this is about to
(Kai throws one of the skulls over the edge)
Oh, great - he's cracked, and we're zombie bait
KAI: The night doth bleed
Sunlight seeping through the dawn
please snap out of it
STAN: What are you going to do, bore the zombies into
submission? Xev, just get the squawker
XEV: Kai, give me the squawker, we
need it to summon the Lexx
(Kai offers her the
XEV: No, that's not the squawker, that's a skull. The radio.
The little thing for communicating. You understand me?
(Kai taps a
finger to the side of his head, shows her the squawker - )
that's it Kai, just give it to me, there's a good Kai
(- and throws
it over the edge)
STAN: You dumb stupid dead
KAI: The wheel doth turn, it rolls around
STAN: So what are we gonna
XEV: There's a transmitter back in the tower
STAN: Back down
XEV: Come on, let's go. Come on
STAN: (to Kai) I hate
KAI: It makes an ancient rumbling sound
(Lomea is in her
bedroom. Lyekka appears behind her, taps her on the
LYEKKA: Hello there
LOMEA: Hello. Who are
LYEKKA: I am Lyekka
LOMEA: Lomea - and this is my lucky
LYEKKA: I like you, Lomea
LOMEA: I like you too, Lyekka
need to eat
(Lomea gets onto her bed - Lyekka follows
LOMEA: Well, we don't have very much, but - what do you like to
LYEKKA: Many things - as long as they are living and breathing
Oh - like me?
LYEKKA: Yes. Or - an animal
LOMEA: Like - for example - a
small, furry animal?
LYEKKA: I love small, furry animals
LOMEA: So do I.
Small, furry, wet, wild animals
LYEKKA: That sounds tasty
LOMEA: Oh, it
(Stan and Xev are walking back across the bridge. She sniffs him)
STAN: What are you doing?
XEV: I can smell your brain,
STAN: Stop it! Xev
LOMEA: I can't think of a better place to
die than in your arms
LYEKKA: Do you mean that?
LOMEA: Oh, yes
I am glad that you are so eager for me to eat you
LOMEA: I've never been so
eager. Make all my fantasies come true
LYEKKA: I will
Roda hear Lomea moaning, screaming)
zombies are on the bridge, heading for the cliff, where Kai is using a jawbone
to draw a circle in the soil)
KAI: The wheel it turns, it spins
Fellows, ha ha ha! Come, come. Share with me your tired tales and let
my windy words fill your empty sails, as you travel across grey hills and
(Kai hugs both the zombies, then
makes them hold hands - the zombies are very confused)
(Xev and Stan are
now back in the courtyard, where Hidea and Roda are still fighting
HIDEA: Welcome back
XEV: We have to get to your
transmitter and call the Lexx. If he hears Stan's voice it might be able to
RODA: No no no. We can't get to the transmitter 'cause it's in the
HIDEA: - and Lomea won't let us in
RODA: She'll never listen to
HIDEA: But she might listen to you, if you said the right thing she might
listen to you
XEV: All right then
(They all go to the tower. Roda
gets bitten by a zombie)
RODA: I hope he had his rabies
HIDEA: Lomea, open the door
(Lyekka opens the door, then
STAN: I thought you said it was locked
STAN: Quick, come on
(They go inside, and Hidea bars the door.
One zombie bangs on it, then goes back to the other zombies)
trying to teach his zombies poetry)
KAI: Around the hub, we -
(He listens for a response from the zombie, holds up the
KAI: We - ?
(Kai gives up, pushes the zombie off
the cliff, laughs, then turns to the other zombie)
KAI: The grinding
(Inside the courtyard, the zombies pick one zombie up to use
as a battering ram)
792: Can I be of some assistance to
KAI: It makes an ancient rumbling sound
(Kai is trying to
make the remaining zombie dance)
KAI: Round the wheel we lightly
La la la la la la la la la
(Stan is helping Xev up the
stairs in the tower)
STAN: Come on, Xev, you can make it
Around its hub we sprightly dance
La la la la la la la la la -
(Kai pushes the zombie off the edge, then throws back his head
(The zombies break through the tower door, as Stan reaches
the top of the stairs)
RODA: 1002, 1003,
HIDEA: Oh, shut your
mouth and save your breath
RODA: 1004, 1005. It doesn't get any easier
(to Stan) I'm very sorry. We were gonna put in an elevator, but you don't
get much money taking care of the dead, you know what I mean?
zombies are walking into the tower)
792: Sorry. Am I in your way,
(Roda starts up the transmitter)
RODA: What's the
name of the ship?
STAN: Hello, hello Lexx, Lexx,
790: Tweedle - what's going on? Where's Xev?
(Xev doesn't look well)
792: If anyone requires
assistance, I'm over here
(The zombies shut the tower door behind
STAN: Lexx - I want you to come down to the
planet and pick us up, can you do that?
LEXX: The island is too small. I
cannot land, Stan
STAN: Can you hover above it or something, and we'll find a
way to get up to you
790: Tweedle - do what you have to do. Disembowel
yourself and let Xev use your intestines for a lasso
(Xev makes a
choking sound, and falls backwards. Hidea hears zombies coming up the
HIDEA: How long is it gonna take to get that thing
STAN: Not long
HIDEA: We don't have long
STAN: Oh boy. Lexx,
STAN: Look, is there a way, a way to get to the
HIDEA: Of course

is nowhere to be seen)
STAN: Xev? Xev?
(The zombies are
at the to of the stairs. Hidea goes up the ladder. Roda is next, but zombie Xev
RODA: Let me go! Please!
raises the ladder behind her. Xev bites Roda)
RODA: No, please. Oh
my, oh my god! Oh!
(He disappears beneath the zombies. More zombies
STAN: No, help, help, help! What about me?
Well, somebody's gotta feed them
STAN: No, help me. Help!
makes her way onto the roof of the tower)
HIDEA: Much better you
(She sees the Lexx overhead - it dwarfs the island. Hidea
feels someone tap her shoulder)
HIDEA: Who are
LYEKKA: Lyekka. You must be -
(She circles around Hidea,
LYEKKA: - Lomea's mother
HIDEA: Yes, I am. Where is
LYEKKA: She was yummy. In fact - delicious
HIDEA: That's -
LYEKKA: And now, I'm going to eat - you
HIDEA: No. I don't - I mean,
I have thought about it, of course, I mean, who hasn't, really, I just, oh my,
oh my - do you find it hot here?
(Hidea fans herself. Lomea moves in
for the kill)
STAN: Xev. Help!
(Lyekka lowers the ladder
down to him)
LYEKKA: Hello Stanley
scrambles up the ladder. Xev is still with the zombies)
(Kai is sitting
in Lyekka's moth on the roof)
KAI: The grinding wheel, it rolls
It makes an ancient rumbling sound
(Stan and Lyekka
STAN: You ate Hidea?
LYEKKA: Yes - but she tasted
STAN: I don't wanna know. Oh good
(He gets into the
STAN: You got Kai!
STAN: Wait, wait wait -
we can't leave without Xev
(Kai puts his lily into Lyekka's top,
between her breasts)
KAI: The fickle fates, the cosmic
Conspire to leave our friends behind
STAN: Oh shut up! Lyekka,
Lyekka, no, we have to go get her
(They don't have to. Zombie Xev
claws at the moth door)
(Later, on the bridge of the Lexx. Kai is looking
STAN: You sure you're all right?
KAI: We are out of
range of the planet's radiation. It is no longer - affecting me. I'm fine. But
(Xev snarls. She is tied to the pedestal)
Be careful with her
(Kai starts sucking zombie poison from the bite
on Xev's neck, spits it out. She snarls at him, then he starts sucking poison
from her mouth)
790: Oh Xev. I worship you in any
(Kai spits out more poison)
(She's back to normal, if a little rough)
- again, please
KAI: A third application is unnecessary. I have already
sucked all the poison out of you
XEV: Let me be the judge of
(Stan looks disgusted. Xev leans down and Kai moves towards her
- then pulls away. Xev sniffs)
STAN: What? What?
sniffs his breath)
XEV: Did - did I eat the High Governor?
Oh - oh yeah, yeah as a matter of fact you did - his brain anyway
ate Lomea and the mother
STAN: Oh, good
(Kai looks at Lyekka -
trying to remember where he left his lily?)
XEV: Oh, I feel better
STAN: Oh, me too, me too. So - let's blow up Ruma, hm?
STAN: Well -
KAI: There's no-one living on Ruma
STAN: It would be
a feel-good experience for me, huh? Yeah? OK Lexx - turn around. Show me that
planet - I'm gonna turn it into granite
LEXX: As you request,
