LEXX 3.03 Gametown
(written by Paul Donovan, Lex Gigeroff)
(May is in the cryopod. Stan, Xev and Kai watch as 790 scans
790: I was sure she was dead
KAI: As was I
you were wrong
KAI: It is a miraculous recovery
STAN: I'm not
XEV: You said that being able to tell is someone was dead or
alive was the special talent of a Divine assassin
KAI: Killing people was my
special talent, that is correct. I am normally very good at determining the
living or non-living state of a human being
(Kai inspects May's
KAI: How is it, May, that you are able to appear to be
MAY: I don't know. Maybe I was dead, and I came back to life somehow. I
don't remember anything
(Later, in the moth breeding chamber. Kai,
790, Stan and Xev are watching the moth breeders at work)
die if you leave me!
KAI: Then we will have something in common. And I will
STAN: How many of these things do we need, I mean, there's only
three of us can fly them
KAI: We can instruct the moth breeders to fly them,
if the task is kept simple. It will take many trips, as the Lexx has a large
XEV: So, Stan - you were there the whole time. What happened? She
was dead, and then, did she just - wake up?
STAN: Well, no, we thought she
was dead, and that is, that is what happened. I was lying there, dreaming sort
of, and, er, and then I heard something and I stood up and she was better
XEV: She wasn't just better, Stan, she was dead! Then she
was alive. It doesn't make sense
STAN: Well, you know, sometimes things just
don't make sense. She's still not feeling well - I'd better go check on
XEV: What do you think, Kai?
think - it does not make sense
(In the cryochamber - Stan is tending
STAN: So, you don't remember anything, do you May? I mean,
from when we thought you were dead, I mean, when you came to, you didn't see
anybody here besides me, did you?
(He dabs her forehead with a
STAN: No, that's good, that's what I thought, I
mean, we were the only ones here, right?
MAY: I don't understand
well, when you were dead - I mean, when we thought you were dead, I had a dream,
and Prince was in it. And I thought the dream was real, I mean I thought Prince
was really here, but he wasn't, was he?
MAY: (laughs) He couldn't
have been, because he's dead
STAN: Exactly! I mean, it was just a dream - and
anything, anything that happened in that dream wasn't real. I mean, anything
that Prince said wasn't real, anything that I agreed to wasn't real, so, I don't
have to pay any attention to it, do I?
(May suddenly gets a pain in
STAN: What's wrong? Oh look, don't worry, don't worry.
Look, you're still weak, and I'm talking way too much, so just lie back and get
some rest, OK?
(Stan is on the bridge, watching the planets Fire and
Water on the view screen)
STAN: So, Lexx - first you go around one
planet, and then you go around the other, right?
LEXX: Yes, Stan. We are in a
figure eight orbit
STAN: So that means that once every orbit we're pointed at
the planet with all the water, and then later you're pointed at the planet with
no water, right?
LEXX: Yes, Stan
STAN: That means that if I asked you to,
you could destroy one of those planets when you're pointed at it
LEXX: Yes. I
can destroy any planet when I am pointed at it. Which one would you like me to
STAN: Oh, neither! Not just yet
(Xev comes onto the
STAN: Um - but tell me, Lexx - how long will it be before
you're pointed at the water planet again?
LEXX: I will be pointed at the
water planet again in six and a half hours
XEV: Why, Stanley?
XEV: Why are you asking how long it is before the Lexx is next pointed
at the water planet?
STAN: Oh - I was - just curious
(Later. Stan is back in the cryochamber with
STAN: You'll be all right. I'll make sure you'll be all
MAY: I am all right. I'm all right because I'm with you
moth breeding chamber. Kai is watching the moth breeders when Stan comes
STAN: Can I ask you a question? It's only a hypothetical one.
OK, look, I was just wondering - suppose that someone cared about somebody else,
you know, really really cared, and that someone else was in trouble, bad
trouble, and it meant that they were gonna have to be killed, and the only way
to stop them being killed was to kill somebody else, or some other people - do
you think it'd be wrong to do that?
KAI: How many other people would he have
STAN: Oh, a few. A relatively large few, sorta
KAI: It does not
STAN: Yeah, but does that mean it's wrong? One special person
that you know is worth a lot of people that you don't know, right? I mean, how
often do you meet special people, I mean, they're one in a million at best,
KAI: She must be very special to you
STAN: Oh, it's just a hypothetical question, I mean, it's got nothing to
do with reality. Look, I just, I had a dream and it bothered me, I was thinking
about it, that's all
(Stan walks away, looks at a
STAN: So when are they gonna be ready?
KAI: They are ready
STAN: OK. So you're gonna take 'em, and you're gonna go get food for
Lexx. You're not gonna be down there that long, I mean, you gotta come back
right away to make more trips, right?
STAN: Yeah, good (he
pats a moth) Good
(Stan leaves. Kai watches him go. The Lexx is
orbiting Water. Stan goes onto the bridge - Xev and 790 are already
STAN: Xev. Xev - I got a question for you
STAN: Are you going with Kai down there?
STAN: I was
hoping you'd stay here on the Lexx. I may need some help with May. I mean, her
condition is precarious, isn't it, 790?
STAN: Look, I'm worried
about her. Will you stay and help me?
(Several moths leave the Lexx,
led by Kai)
KAI: Follow me. Land where I land
MOTHB: Follow you.
Land where you land
(The moths fly over Water, towards a
(Stan, Xev and 790 are on the bridge)
790: I miss him
so badly. Why didn't I go with him?
XEV: Because he didn't take you - but I
should have gone
790: Don't agree
790: He likes to be
(Stan sits down beside Xev)
STAN: Xev, it's always
better to stay on the Lexx and stay safe until Kai checks things out
did you want me to stay here on the Lexx, Stan?
STAN: Well, because I care
about May, I care about you
790: I care about Mr Deatholicious
Kai's a guy, and you're a guy too
790: I am not a guy!
STAN: No, he's a
homo robot head
790: I am not!
STAN: Then what are ya?
790: I am a
robot head in love with a dead man - and I am a woman
STAN: I don't think
XEV: Neither do I
790: I am! I am, I know I am! I have a tiny fragment
of a human brain and it came from a woman
XEV: And how do you know
790: I feel it. Deep inside this hard metal casing lies a burning
passion that only a woman could feel for a man
XEV: I still think I should
have gone with him
STAN: Kai won't be that long (to Kai, in the moth)
You won't be long, will you Kai?
KAI: I do not know what type of food is
available, or how difficult it will be to procure
STAN: well, you'll eat just
about anything, won't ya Lexx?
LEXX: I eat all types of organic matter,
Stanley. I am very hungry
STAN: Yeah, we know that Lexx, won't be long
(Stan sits down)
STAN: Boy, I don't like these
planets. The sooner we get away from here the better
XEV: So, you plan to
take her with us?
STAN: Well, everyone she ever knew is dead
maybe she'll want to stay on her own planet
STAN: I don't think so
XEV: How do you know she won't want to stay?
STAN: She won't have any
STAN: Well, I mean, I don't know, that's just what I
(Stan leaves the bridge)
(In the floating city, about a
dozen people in skimpy white uniforms are playing a ball game in a courtyard.
There are goals with nets at either end of the court. A girl - Bunny - punches
the ball into the net, but lands on her stomach. Brock helps her
BROCK: Fine move, Bunny
BUNNY: Just imitating your style,
(Bunny looks like Laleen, from 2.10 Wake the Dead. Another guy
- Fifi - shoots, but the ball bounces off the side of the
BROCK: Don't worry Fifi, you'll score next time
so I missed, so what, what's the big deal? Anybody got a problem with that, huh?
OK, let's play
(Above the courtyard, the players see the moths
ALL: What are they?
hits a gong. They all grab bows and arrows and head onto a balcony as the moths
FIFI: Ready, aim -
BROCK: Hang on, fellas. Look,
he's waving at us
(Kai is waving in the moth)
(On the Lexx,
Stan is pacing the bridge)
STAN: How long now, Lexx?
(The moths land on the balcony of the floating city. Kai
opens the door of his moth)
KAI: Greetings. I am Kai
(Fifi walks forward)
FIFI: Good to meet you, guy.
I'm Fifi. Welcome to Gametown
KAI: It looks like a nice place
KAI: You look familiar
FIFI: Oh yeah?
KAI: You resemble someone who
lived four thousand years ago
(Kai is talking about Schlemmi, from
FIFI: Musta been a good looking guy
KAI: What do
you do here?
FIFI: Play games, mostly. Have a good time. Right?
KAI: Do you have food?
FIFI: Oh, yeah, plenty
KAI: Good. I would
like to obtain some, for our ship
FIFI: Sure, no problem, whatever. So, er -
what do you do?
KAI: I was an assassin. I killed people, but I do not intend
to kill you
(Kai gets out of the moth, and looks at
(Stan is in the cryochamber with
STAN: Look - I admit it. I've always had a problem with girls
you know, but I think it's because I never ever, not once in my entire life met
one who was, er, really special, you know, the one. I mean, see, if all you
wanna do with a girl is just get her into bed, she usually figures it out, which
makes it really hard to get her into bed - you know what I mean. So, look -
telling you this is a really stupid strategy, and I shouldn't be saying it, but
- but you're the one, May. You're the one for me. And, and I'm, I'm sure of
(May holds her hand out to Stan. He takes it. They don't see Xev
MAY: That's the right thing to say, Stanley
Oh I'm really glad, really really really glad. I needed to hear you say that
before I -
MAY: Before what, Stanley?
(Stan lets go of her hand -
and then washes his hands in the sponge water)
STAN: Er, well,
before I, before I do, er, what I have to do
(Down on Water, the
moths are on the balcony, and the moth breeders are loading baskets of food onto
them. Most of the players are exercising. Fifi and Bunny are watching Kai and
the moth breeders - Bunny is nibbling on a carrot)
FIFI: What's up
with those guys? They don't seem very bright
KAI: They are moth breeders,
only able to perform limited tasks related to moths
FIFI: Who tells them what
KAI: I do
FIFI: What if you're not around?
KAI: They respond to
anyone who is nearby to give them instructions. They have no capacity for
FIFI: Really? That's interesting. Oh, by the way, help
yourself to all the food you want - we got plenty, we're not gonna run
BROCK: Yeah, yeah - it's good to be able to give someone something that
they need more than we do
FIFI: Button it, Brock
KAI: That is very
generous of you. Our ship has a very large appetite
FIFI: So, er, are these
things hard to fly, or what?
KAI: No. They are easy to fly. They are living
organisms and basically fly themselves. The pilot simply guides them with his
hand using the joystick
FIFI: That thing?
FIFI: You gotta
FIFI: Oh. Well, I suppose I could, if I really had
BROCK: Hey, looks like your fellows are gonna be a while. Care to join us
in a game?
FIFI: Course he will. He's on my time. It's me, the rag man and
all the girls against you losers, right?
KAI: If you request
just do what I say. I may not be the greatest athlete, but at least I can think.
I'm the only one around here who can do that, right? (laughs) Let's
play - come on
(Fifi hands Kai the ball, and Kai spins it on his
(The Lexx. Stan is on the control pedestal)
Lexx - how long now?
LEXX: We will be directly aimed at the water planet in
10 seconds. 9. 8. 7. 6
STAN: Lexx -
LEXX: 5. 4
STAN: I command you to -
(Xev 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 -
which just passes over the floating city. Kai and Fifi watch)
What is that?
KAI: The end of all your problems - almost
screen on the Lexx shows the beam harmlessly passing the planet Water. Stan is
back on the pedestal, rubbing at his throat)
LEXX: I am sorry
Stanley. I missed. We had passed the position where I was pointed directly at
XEV: Why Water? I thought if anything you'd want to destroy
STAN: I had my reasons
XEV: Oh, what reasons?! And Kai was down
STAN: He would have been all right. He's dead already, remember? He's
impossible to kill
XEV: Well, the Lexx's weapon might have destroyed
STAN: Kai's dead, he doesn't care what happens to him
XEV: What are
you saying Stan? What happened to you, huh? What's going on?
STAN: Look, OK,
OK, OK. I'll tell you. Guess it doesn't matter anymore now
(Stan sits down on the pedestal)
STAN: Look -
after May was dead and I was lying there beside her, Prince came to me
Prince is dead. We left him down on the desert planet, remember?
STAN: I know
that! None of this makes any sense. I mean, first May is dead, and then she's
not. And Prince did come to me. He said that if I used the Lexx to blow up the
water planet, that he'd bring May back to life. And I said I agreed, but I
didn't know if he heard me, but then May did come back to life. And that's why I
didn't want you to go down there with Kai
XEV: It was a dream. It must have
STAN: I don't know. I don't know what to know. I know May is dead
(They go to the cryochamber, where 790 scans the motionless
790: She's not dead
XEV: Are you sure?
790: Yes. One
hundred percent sure - but she is on the edge of death
STAN: Will she
790: I don't know. The protein regenerator is not working so we cannot
help her. She is on her own. She may recover, or she may die
pats Stan's arm)
STAN: OK, just - go, leave me alone with
XEV: Are you sure?
STAN: I'm sure
XEV: Stan - please don't have any
more dreams now
(Xev takes 790 and leaves Stan alone with
(Down on Gametown, another game is in progress. Kai is standing on
the court, watching. Fifi trips a player up, gets the ball and throws it to
FIFI: Let's go!
BUNNY: It's their ball
FIFI: What are
you talking about?
BROCK: You tripped him, so it's our ball
FIFI: No I
didn't, he fell. It's not my fault if he's clumsy
BROCK: Come on Fifi, all
right? We'll forget about it and get back to the game. Is everyone OK with
FIFI: His shin hit my foot, OK?
BROCK: Fifi, the game's
not fun unless we all play fair. Let's just put it behind us and get back to the
FIFI: What's the matter, you don't like the way I play, is that
BROCK: Fifi, it's not that -
FIFI: No, let me get this straight - you
guys are winning. One of you guys gets in my face, and it's my fault? Huh - I'm
always the bad guy, right? Answer me when I'm talking to ya, Brock!
Let it go Fifi - you're taking it too seriously
(Bunny tries to give
Fifi a neck rub)
FIFI: I'm taking it seriously?
pushes Bunny to the floor - she lands at Kai's feet)
team are you on, anyway? You're all such a bunch of cry-babies - all of ya! Ah,
I don't care. Take the ball (to Kai) Hey look, whatever your name is.
We're down nineteen to six. The game only goes to twenty one. I kinda notice
you're just standing around here. Maybe you could put a little life into the
KAI: I cannot put life into my game, as I am dead
telling me! Well, do me a favour, help us out a little bit, OK?
would you like me to do?
FIFI: Score some goals. I play to
(Fifi makes a thumbs up sign - so does Kai)
(Kai grabs the ball with his brace and throws it right through the
net, scoring a goal)
(Xev is in her bed, when a hand touches her shoulder
and wakes her)
XEV: Stan, is that you?
PRINCE: No. It is
(Xev sits up. Prince is standing at the end of her
XEV: Prince. Am I dreaming?
PRINCE: What is a dream? What is
XEV: You got shot by an arrow, I saw it
PRINCE: You see me here,
XEV: Did you bring May back to life?
(Xev gets up out of bed)
PRINCE: Do you still care
for me Xev?
XEV: Yes, I think so
PRINCE: Please help me
XEV: If I
(Prince strokes her chin)
PRINCE: Let Stanley do what
he must do
(Prince kisses Xev. When she opens her eyes, he's
(The cryochamber. Stan is asleep next to May's cryopod. Prince
strokes his face, waking him)
PRINCE: You did not destroy the water planet,
STAN: I tried, but Xev stopped me. Does this mean May is gonna die
PRINCE: 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
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
XEV: A person,
STAN: Oh, that was just me. I was just talking to
(Down on Gametown, Kai scores another goal, ripping the
FIFI: Go on, one more
(And Kai obediently scores
FIFI: Yeah, we won!
(Bunny jumps up on Kai,
putting her legs around him. Fifi hugs them)
FIFI: Yeah, I picked him
BROCK: OK guys - hit the
FIFI: I don't really like showers that much. I'll see you guys
(Stan, Xev and 790 are on the bridge, communicating with
STAN: So Kai - you have enough food yet?
KAI: I do not think
so. It will likely take a number of trips
(Kai is in the shower with
Bunny. She's naked - he's not)
STAN: Hear that, Lexx? It may take a
number of trips
LEXX: I am very, very hungry, Stan
STAN: Kai, Lexx is very
(In the shower, Bunny "accidentally" drops her
BUNNY: Oh! I'm sorry. Could you -
(Kai bends down
and picks up the soap)
XEV: Are you still there, Kai?
BUNNY: Could you, um - do my back? Please?
(Kai tucks the
squawker under his chin. He lathers up the soap and rubs her back, quite
KAI: I think you are clean now
BUNNY: Oh no I'm not. I'm
dirty - very dirty
(Bunny pulls Kai's soapy hand to her
KAI: You do not seem to fully understand. My body is not -
BUNNY: Well, mine is. Here - tell me how it feels
Kai's left hand on her right breast. Kai thinks about this)
feels - hot
BUNNY: It is - hot
(She moves his hand down lower -
( and lower - )
(Bunny gasps. Xev has been listening to
BUNNY: Oh - I want you to put out my fire,
XEV: Kai - what's going on down there?
KAI: I am assisting someone who
is taking a shower
(Bunny looks very happy. She leans back against
KAI: What's your name?
XEV: Who is Bunny?
KAI: A naked young woman
He said, a naked young woman
790: Don't do it, Kai! Return to the Lexx right
away. It's an emergency!
(Bunny is rubbing her chest and
KAI: What emergency?
790: Er - there's a robot head up
here who desperately needs a lube job
XEV: Kai, listen - don't get distracted
down there, OK? The Lexx is very hungry, and so are we
KAI: I do not get -
(Kai walks away. Bunny puts her hand out to him. Kai
stops, hands her the soap, and leaves)
BUNNY: You missed a
(Xev looks at Stan)
XEV: Well, you doing seem very
interested in what was going on - down there
STAN: I was. I'm just - hungry,
and it distracts me, that's all
(On Gametown, all the moths are
flying away from the city. Brock rushes out of the showers after
BROCK: Mister Kai - is it OK if I ask you a question?
BROCK: I'm really uncomfortable about it
- I know it's not right to talk about another fellow behind his back
will not be uncomfortable
(Kai walks out onto the courtyard. Brock
BROCK: OK. Have you noticed how there's a fella here
who, you know, doesn't fit in with the rest of us? Who's, you know,
KAI: You are referring to Fifi?
BROCK: You did notice! We've
tried everything, Mister Kai. We've tried to make him fit in. We even let him
score goals whenever we can. Everyone gives 110% for him, everybody, but -
nothing works. He just doesn't seem to - you know, fit in
And that's just it. He doesn't fit in and we don't know what to do. We thought
you might have an idea
FIFI: So long, suckers!
KAI: I suspect that Fifi
may have just solved your problem himself
(Kai and Brock look up to
see the moths flying away)
FIFI: Bite me! (laughs)
and Brock and some of the others go out onto the balcony)
Can't you do something with that arm thing?
KAI: He is out of range
(Kai tries the squawker)
KAI: Fifi, can you hear
FIFI: Yeah, I can hear ya
KAI: Fifi, I request that you return the
moths. I need them to bring food to the Lexx
FIFI: Oh. The answer is, er -
BROCK: Tell him we forgive him and that - we'll try
harder to get him to fit in
KAI: They all forgive you, and will try harder to
make you fit in
FIFI: I'm sick of hearing all their crap. 'It's OK Fifi,
you'll score next time' 'It's the best two out of three' - forget about it, I'm
sick of it. I'll tell you one thing though - I play to win. And this time, you
guys are the big losers and I'm the winner (laughs) You know why?
Because I gotta hold of all these moths, and I'm gonna fly very far away from
this never-ending total boredom. Come on, how many times can you play that
stupid game anyway, I'm sick of it! So, er, so long, suckers!
BROCK: I think
it's real sad. Fifi was - well, you know. Different. So - who's up for a
(The players follow Brock back
(The cryochamber. Stan is sponging May's forehead
STAN: You'll get better soon - I know you will. Stanley
Tweedle will make sure you do
(Stan hears someone moving outside in
STAN: You can come in. You can come in if you want
(Xev walks into the cryochamber)
XEV: The Lexx
will be pointed at the water planet again soon
STAN: Oh, is that
XEV: You didn't have any more dreams, did you?
STAN: Oh, no, no,
I've forgotten about that
XEV: You sure?
XEV: Just asking.
Thought you might have
STAN: You don't have to worry about me Xev. Look, I
was acting crazy, and, and it passed. Besides, you were right. Kai might have
been destroyed with the planet, so - you were right to stop me
XEV: I didn't
know you still cared about Kai
STAN: Oh yeah, I care about the dead man - not
as much as you, but - he's nice to have around
(Xev starts to walk
STAN: Xev, where are you going?
just on case, just in case something happens with May and I need your
XEV: I'm tired, I think I'll lie down for a while
XEV: Goodnight Stan
STAN: Night Xev
(Xev leaves. Stan
shakes his head, rests his chin on his hands)
STAN: Goodnight Xev.
(Fifi and the moths are in the atmosphere connecting
Water and Fire)
FIFI: Getting rough up here boys. Stay with
MOTHB: Stay with you
(Xev is lying on her bed. Stan checks in
on her, then walks away. Xev sits up in the edge of the bed. Prince is watching
XEV: I can't
PRINCE: Can't what?
XEV: I can't do
PRINCE: You don't have to do anything. Stanley will do it
XEV: I can't
(Prince sits beside Xev, and strokes her
PRINCE: Life is full of choices. Not all of them are easy. Kai
is dead. Whatever happens will not really affect him. And the others - there are
a thousand people, dying at this very moment on a thousand other planets. What
do they really mean to you - or to me?
(Tears roll down Xev's
(Stan is on the bridge)
STAN: How long before we're
pointed at the water planet, Lexx?
LEXX: We will be there in two minutes,
(On the planet Fire, the stolen moths circle a
tower, and head up to the deck)
FIFI: Woo! It's warm up here,
(Prince sniffs Xev)
PRINCE: You can choose your own
happiness, or the happiness of people that you have never known, or met, and who
will never thank you. I can give you happiness, Xev
(Xev closes her
PRINCE: I can fill the emptiness within you. Let Stanley do as
STAN: How long now Lexx?
LEXX: Forty seconds,
(Prince kisses Xev's jaw. She opens her eyes)
I'm going to stop him
too late, Xev. It's done. You don't have enough time to get to the
(Xev looks at him)
XEV: Oh yes I
(She 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)
XEV: Prince visited me
STAN: He did?
(Stan gets up)
XEV: He wanted me to
let you do it
STAN: Well, maybe it's just as well. You were right to stop me
Xev. I couldn't help it. Now May's gone. She's dead. She's gone from me
XEV: All right. Let's see
(Xev takes Stan's arm and leads
him to the cryochamber. Stan is wearing May's ocarina around his
STAN: I can't
Yes you can
MAY: Yes you can
MAY: Look at
(May is alive and well - but she seems different. She walks
MAY: I thought you cared for me, Stanley
STAN: I do
MAY: You could have had me
STAN: I tried to blow up Water -
you failed! Water is still there, isn't it?
(May walks past Stan. He
puts his hand up to her shoulder, but she pushes it away)
wound is better!
MAY: My wound is not better, it's not there. It's never been
there. I never had a wound. And you don't have what it takes to have me,
Stanley. So goodbye, Stanley Tweedle. Enjoy your life, what's left of
(May pulls the ocarina from Stan's neck, drops it, and crushes it
beneath her heel. Xev steps up between Stan and May, but May ignores her and
STAN: May - what? -
emerges from the shadows at the end of the cryochamber. May smiles. Prince
sniffs Xev, strokes her face)
PRINCE: I do not like the choice you
made, Xev - but it was the right choice
(Prince goes to Stan, walks
PRINCE: I liked your choice, Stanley, it was the choice
I would have made - the wrong choice. Xev is preventing you from getting your
reward. It's too bad. You really would have enjoyed May for a
(May puts her arms around Prince's neck. He puts his hand on
her thigh, and they kiss. Stan looks away, broken-hearted)
But soon you will get another reward - one that you deserve
and May walk out of the cryochamber)
XEV: What does that
STAN: But she shot him, with an arrow. I saw her do it. She was his
enemy. I saw her do it
(Xev pats Stan's arm)
XEV: I think
we just saw what they wanted us to see
(Xev and Stan go onto the
bridge. Prince and May are in a moth on the moth platform)
are the one, Stanley Tweedle. You are the one!
(May laughs, as does
Prince. She shuts the moth door, and the moth takes off. Xev sits down on the
pedestal. Stan sits beside her)
STAN: That rolling thing, I didn't
know you could do that
XEV: Neither did I. Must be the Cluster lizard in
(Stan thinks of something, gets up)
STAN: Lexx, I
wanna communicate. Squawker channel
LEXX: As you command, Stan
KAI: Yes, Stanley?
STAN: Kai, we're getting kinda hungry up here.
When are you gonna be back?
KAI: I do not know
(Kai is on the
court - a game is in progress)
STAN: What do you mean, you don't
KAI: I am now stranded here, as I am no longer in possession of the
STAN: What do you mean, you don't have possession of the moths? Where
KAI: I suspect they are headed towards the other planet -
(The moths have landed on the deck of the tower city. Fifi has
his hands up, and is surrounding by armed guards pointing crossbows at
FIFI: I don't exactly know how I wound up there, but I
definitely do know, that it wasn't for me. And seeing how that's the case, and
seeing that you guys obviously have a need, and seeing that I happened to get my
hands on all these moth things that do exactly what you want - er, it looks to
me like, umm - we may have the ingredients to a deal here. Right?
shaven headed man - Duke - circles Fifi, looks at the moth. He has a black
stripe down his chin, and his right eyebrow is pierced)
FIFI: Er -
you know what? I have, er, I have plenty of food and water here too. But that's
not the main thing, no sir. No, the main thing is, you can forget about your
balloons. Because these moths, they go between Fire and Water, real real fast,
so they're like perfect for an attack. Especially of you have some inside help.
Someone like, for instance, me. Someone who knows what their defensive plan is.
And you know what? I don't even care about getting anything in return. No, I'll
just help you attack 'em 'cause it's what I like to do. That's who I
(Duke smiles, and looks at Fifi, who smiles
FIFI: But you know, I gotta tell you fellas, it's - real hot
