Rygel and Jack
sat in the small room, handcuffed to the file cabinet, screaming
very loudly. Rygel was being especially loud, which was very
strange, considering the fact that Hynerians are aquatic. And
if it wasn't for Chi, who happened to be passing the room that
Jack and Rygel were in right at that moment, then Rose would
have ended up chopping off Jack's handcuffs with an axe and then
most likely cutting off Rygel's hands, because, let's be frank,
you can get lucky chopping off handcuffs the first time, but
if you think that you'll do it successfully the second then you're
just asking for too much.

first, questions later," Rygel yelled, "now get me
the FRELL OUT OF HERE!!!"
the matter with you?" Chiana said, "Hynerians are aquatic.
Have you gone completely farbot?'
Of course I'm aquatic, but my frelling chair doesn't work if
it's submerged. You don't expect me to walk, do you? If you do,
then you're the one who's gone farbot, not me."

Jack said, confused, "Waaaiiit a minute-isn't Dakki confusing
said Chi, "Obi-Wan Kenobi is up on the first class deck.
After all, this is the dimension Where Movies Are Real."
said Jack, still slightly confused, but trying to pass it off
as a Soap Opera look. Of course, Chi saw right through it, but
went to get the lightsaber anyway.

I got quite a few pointers."

she decided that she would look for Rose and tell her about birth
control, maybe teach her some rudimentary self-defense skills.

lightsaber in hand. "And it wasn't easy, either. Jedi Knights
sure are possessive."
then, get me the frell out of these handcuffs! The water's beginning
to come in here." Rygel said angrily.
something that sounded suspiciously like "frelling little
Hynerian bastard," but she cut his cuffs anyway, and then
Jack's. Jack looked a bit frightened by the Big Scary Light,
but soon put up his He- man façade.
said Chi, "I guess you want to find your girlfriend."
said Jack, sounding less than sure of himself. "I am going
to rescue her!"
Chi, Jack, and Rygel set out to find Rose's room. They sloshed
along for quite a while (since the boat had already begun to
sink), and when they finally got to Rose's cabin, they were pretty
surprised by what they saw.
you'll find this a little more convenient..." Aeryn said
as she tied some ribbon around Rose's slicked-back braid. Rose
tossed her head, delighted to not feel weighed down by masses
of hair anymore "Ah..." she said, "now I won't
knock over any more vases. Thank you so much, Aeryn." In
fact, the braid suited Rose quite well, as did the Peacekeeper

up, Jack," said Rose, pushing him away, "I am not an
object. Aeryn has taught me self defense, and about feminism,
and how to steer a prowler. And I like my hair this way, thank
you very much. Now, let's go and get a lifeboat."

Chi, Rygel, and Jack set off for the top deck so they could get
a lifeboat. The only problem was, they still hadn't found Crichton,
and Aeryn had a feeling that he wouldn't enjoy the cold all that
much. But her problem was solved twenty minutes later when they
found him and
a lovely piece with the string quartet. The real problem came
when they came across Cal, slightly drunk, wandering around looking
for Rose .

even that proved to be not quite enough. He tried to grab her
again, but before he could, Aeryn grabbed her pulse-pistol and

no, anything but that!" Cal wailed. "I would rather

Aeryn said, and shot him again.
