Anyway, after that gruesome little incident, Greenschlick explains that the Scarrans found out Scorpy had his cooling system installed at Kaiser PermaNOTe, and so they installed a spy on the premises to cool his heels until Scorpy showed up for maintenance. Braca seems outraged that Greenschlick took money for this; Greenschlick insists that he was going to keep the Scarran frozen and hand him over to Scorpius, but then Braca and company had to ruin it all by overrunning the place with their guns and whatnot, so "I kind of doubted your good intentions. As insurance, I switched on the Scarran's auto-release, three arn's delay. If you'd have behaved and paid what we agreed, I'd have switched it off." Greenschlick then holds up his mangled hand and whispers, "I hope he kills you very slowly." Scorpius bitterly replies, "Not likely."
Back on Moya, Jothee's all, "My dad is so totally going to kill me for doing his girlfriend!" and Chiana's just sort of marinating in irritation. When Rygel comes in, they're both like, "All those banging noises you heard from the kitchen were because we're really clumsy cooks and not because we had extremely raucous off-camera sex! Really!" Rygel is all, "Do I look like I care? I have a levitating chair and a full plate. What else could I possibly need?"
Meanwhile, Braca's busy figuring out everyone's whereabouts. Sergeant-Major Good-looking asks if he should just go ahead and take out the Scarran. This suggestion is met with some derision on Greenschlick's part. Either Greenschlick is too stupid to realize he's not getting out of this alive, or he's stopped giving a damn. I'm not sure which it is. Scorpius puts on the Bluetooth headset and prepares to send his puppet out.
Crichton sits up and lauds Stark for his sage advice, asking how he knew it would work. Stark replies, "I didn't. It just sounded good." Crichton's all, "Oooh-kay then. Not listening to the freaky bald dude anymore!" He's itching to pay the bill and get going. Stark is all, "At last! I can return to my proper place -- clinging to Zhaan's skirts like a moist and sticky toddler!"
Greenschlick lurches outside, calling for the Scarran. He's all, "So! No Scorpius here, but we do have John Crichton. Will you take that?" The Scarran replies, "Scorpius seems obsessed with him. We want to know why." Greenschlick merrily inquires," Why don't you ask him? He's in the surgery room, recovering. He'll confuse you with the insurance policy auditor." The Scarran begins to interrogate Greenschlick, and we cut to Scorpius mouthing the dialogue, assuring the Scarran that everything's on the up-and-up. After the Q&A's wrapped up, the Scarran grabs Greenschlick by the throat and thrusts him into the empty cryogenic pod, explaining, "I might have use for you later." Greenschlick's frozen in mid-scream. It's too bad Stark's not around to see it -- he would consider it just desserts.
