Throne for a Loss - S1-E4

John: Where's the you-know-what?
Rygel: I knew you wouldn't come back just for me!

Rygel: Swallow it? Yes. Yes. Which means you're going to have to take me back as I am or disembowel me here.

Aeryn: Crichton should be back by now.
D'Argo: Well he's probably at the wrong end of some Tavlek weapon somewhere.
Aeryn: Imagine...somewhere out there there's a whole world full of Crichtons. How useless that must be.

John: Fine. Yes. You're right. We know almost nothing about the Tavloids.
Aeryn: Tavleks.
John: Whatever. Tavloid...Tav...We do know they will pay us to haul cargo which they're not going to do if you go in there doing your...John Wayne impression.
Aeryn: John Wayne? Who's that? A relative?
John: John Wayne? No. The big guy. "True Grit," "The Searchers," "The Cowboys," "Genghis Khan." Uh no, look, forget about Genghis Khan - everybody makes a bad movie. But the point is...
Aeryn: Look. No. The point is that I'm not going to meet that shuttle unarmed. Simple as that.
John: Kung Fu! Kung Fu never carried a gun.

Family Ties - S1-E22

Visible crew/equipment: After Rygel's transport pod returns to Moya, as the docking bay door slides open, in the shot facing everyone while they have their weapons drawn we can see the bare floor. However, when Aeryn checks Crais for hidden weapons and then as D'Argo approaches him, there's a blue crash mat on the floor. Then it vanishes again.

...Different Destinations - S3-E5

Trivia: While they're waiting for the Venek Horde to attack again, when John's chained to the statue Scorpius/Harvey's playing the harmonica with his feet up on John's lap. Notice that both soles of Scorpius/Harvey's red boots have the name "Andy" written on them. In "Toy Story" Woody's boot has "Andy" written on its sole, and here in John's mind it's to signify John's ownership of the neural clone.

Question: Why is John's Farscape-1 module able to navigate wormholes where some other, more sophisticated craft, notably Peacekeeper Prowlers, cannot without liquifying passengers?


Chosen answer: It's never explained. John mentions a theory that his less technologically developed craft simply interferes with the wormhole less than the "superior" Vipers, but they never make a concrete determination on that point. But we also have to take into account the fact that Moya traverses wormholes with no ill effect as well.
