The Leper's Kiss

Aired Unknown Nov 11, 2002 on Syfy



  • Trivia

    • Nitpick: One of the patrons of the bar where Dylan, Tyrand Beka go to meet their contact sneers at Tyr for being a Nietzschean. But Tyr no longer has his forearm bone spikes, the most readily identifiable sign of the Nietzschean race, so how did the man know his racial identity at a glance?

  • Quotes

    • Tyr: So, you don't trust this Sasha's intentions, either? (Beka gives him a look that means "Oh, please") Wasn't there a time you threatened to kill your own brother?
      Beka: Rafe? Rafe stole my ship, he stole my entire music collection. I always wanted to kill him. (pauses) But no, I don't actually want to kill him. I don't buy it.
      Tyr: I'm inclined to concur.

    • Tyr: I think I can tell you this. Who ever our assassin is, I seriously doubt he has any family or financial attachment, need for emotional closure of any sort for that matter.
      Dylan: (to Beka) We are still talking about the Leper, right?
      Beka: I think so.
      (Dylan nods and Tyr smiles.)

    • Sasha: You wanna know why you were the only one in the universe who could catch me? I saw your face, when we went to that nebula, and I realized: you weren't afraid of death.
      Dylan: What you saw was faith, and a belief in doing the right thing. (Sasha kisses him)
      Sasha: I'll see you again, Dylan.
      Dylan: In another life.

    • Sasha: I know what you're thinking – Blood is thicker than water.
      Dylan: It's also a lot tougher to clean up.

    • Dylan: Wait, Gunyan- I know a way you can get people to really fear you!
      Gunyan: I bet you've got 1001 nights' worth of ideas while you buy time.

    • Gunyan: (after trapping Dylan) To think you founded a Commonwealth with such a bad sense of direction.

    • Tyr: If you'd informed us of this earlier, we would have strongly advised you against it.
      Dylan: Well, that's why I didn't inform you earlier.

    • Beka: Whaddya know? He picked the girl!

    • (After the woman Leper escapes and someone mentions it being impossible.)
      Dylan: She had help.
      Beka: From who?
      Dylan: Her brother.

    • Walk without footprints.
      Breathe without breath.
      Our lives leave no trace.

  • Allusions

    • Gunyan: I bet you've got 1001 nights' worth of ideas while you buy time.

      Gunyan is referring to the stories told by Queen Scheherazade to her husband the Sultan in One Thousand and One Nights. Every day the Sultan would marry a new wife, and kill the last one, so when Scheherazade was chosen she begged to be allowed to tell him a story before they slept. She did so but did not finish it, so he put off killing her for a day so that he could hear the story's ending. Then she began another story, and so on, until finally the Sultan pardoned her, sparing her life.
