"Well, where did you bury your leaders on Erp?" Rygel asks wonderingly. We don't bury them, we just keep reelecting them. BOO-YAH! Also, no matter how many times they trot it out, calling Earth "Erp" never fails to get a good long giggle out of me. Especially the way Rygel says it in his royal, plummy tones: "Eahhrp." Rygel is totally disgusted when Crichton quickly tells him where we bury people -- "just underground" -- and then commences yelling for Chiana. "Next to where you lived, ugh!" Rygel snorts. Better not tell him where my mother keeps my grandparents. ASHES -- where my mother keeps my grandparents' ASHES. Not BODIES, God. Also, you gotta love the guy who gets disgusted by buried bodies but has no problems snacking on a maggot yanked from a pile of decayed flesh. Crichton finds pieces of Chiana's furry clothing -- is it those damn arm warmers of hers that would surely get her Fugged on Erp? -- and picks them up. Aeryn announces that the Prowler seems to be fine, and suggests they get out of there. Gesturing at the arm warmers, Crichton refuses to leave. He takes off and calls back, "You coming?" Aeryn rolls her eyes but follows anyway. Rygel is annoyed and proclaims that he's staying right there. Crichton and Aeryn go on without him. "Don't rob the graves, Sparky!" Crichton orders. Rygel is about to get affronted, but is distracted by a shiny red object. It looks like a very fancy flask or a tin perfume bottle. Rygel moves in to wrench it off and the tomb slides back, exposing piles of other shiny objects. "Yotz!" Rygel breathes. Although he says "Yotzah," like it's a combo of "Yahtzee" and "matzoh" and I know -- Farscape geek that I am -- that the word is usually just "yotz." No extra "ah." Maybe it's their equivalent of "zowie," which could be foreshortened to just "zow." ["Or it's a forerunner of 'Yataa!'" -- Sars] Or maybe I really don't need to be that much of a geek that I wonder about the etymological issues in the UT. But I sort of am.
