picspam #2 (farscape (reasons to watch) part 1)  




the astronut.

no, that isn’t a typo. welcome to the wonderful mind that is john crichton’s. this boy is crazy. he’s brave and he loves his friends (and he really, really does loves aeryn that much). he’s sometimes smart and sometimes deeply stupid and utterly unpredictable (except when it comes to his friends). he's funny, full of one-liners, pop-culture references and 'crichtonisms.' and ben browder is hot.



"my name is john crichton, an astronaut. a radiation wave hit and i got shot through a wormhole. lost in some distant part of the universe on a ship, a living ship, full of strange alien life forms. help me. listen, please. is there anybody out there who can hear me? being hunted... by an insane military commander. doing everything i can. i'm just looking for a way home."

- - -

"my rank is commander, i'm not military, least not any military you know. i'm a damn scientist."

- - -

"freeze! don't move! or i'll fill you full of.....little yellow bolts of light!"

- - -

"does this bother you? [points at twitching eye] 'cos it bugs the crap out of me. so can we go? before we become a tourist attraction in this bog, and my eye falls out?"



"my name is john crichton (i'm lost), an astronaut (shot through a wormhole), in some distant part of the universe (trying to stay alive), aboard this ship (this living ship), of escaped prisoners (my friends). if you can hear me (beware), if i make it back (will they follow?), if i open the door (are you ready?). earth is unprepared (helpless), for the nightmares (i have seen). or should i stay? (protect my home), not show them (you exist), but then you'll never know, the wonders i have seen."

- - -

john: "open your ears or tentacles or whatever orifice it is you listen with!"

- - -

chiana: "what if the creature's waiting?"
john: "then piss it off."
chiana: "how?"
john: "pretend it's me."

- - -

john: "lock up the women and hide the fried chicken!"

- - -

john: "can I get a, "hell, yeah!"?"
imaginary crowd: "hell, yeah!"

- - -

john: "my grandmother used to say life is a great wheel. sometimes it grinds you down into the mud, other times it lifts you up into the light."
d'argo: "are we strapped to this wheel?"
john: "that's a given. the point is, is that most times you get a second chance. you just gotta wait for the wheel."



"my name is john Crichton... an astronaut. three years ago i got shot through a wormhole. i'm in a distant part of the universe aboard this living ship of escaped prisoners, my friends. i've made enemies. powerful. dangerous. now all I want is to find a way home, to warn earth. look upward, and share... the wonders i have seen."

- - -

john: "i try to save a life a day...usually it's mine."

- - -

john: "how do you say 'we're screwed' in your native tongue?"

- - -

d'argo: "have you ever heard of anything like this happening before?"
john: "d'argo, i haven't heard of anything like anything before. my planet doesn't even go to the moon anymore."

- - -

john: "ah, screw it. but i am not kirk, spock, luke, buck, flash or arthur frelling dent. i'm dorothy gale from kansas."

- - -

the harvey.

harvey, harvey, harvey. named (by john) for the giant rabbit in the old movie starring jimmy stewart, and like his namesake, harvey isn't really there. he's a chip inside john's head and a neural clone of scorpius and hands down one of the best characters to grace the small screen.



john: "screw you!"
harvey: "the reverse is more likely."

- - -

harvey: "how could i leave your mind? it's full of so many wondrous memories! cool jazz piano, chocolate ice cream, womens perfume... women! how could you take that from me?"

- - -

harvey: "i resent you calling me here at a whim."
john: "if you don't like it, there's the dumpster. those are the rules, Harv."



harvey: "ka d'argo! give me five!"

- - -

harvey: "scorpius...is like...god! he does not play dice with ze universe..."

- - -

harvey: "dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to pay our final respects and to say farewell to our dear friend, commander john crichton. a schmuck. muleheaded, reckless, and probably brain-dead before i met him."



harvey: "i leave you to your ship mates, john. but rest assured, i'll be with you always...keeping you safe."

- - -

harvey: "COMING THIS YEAR! JOHN AND HARVEY'S WORMHOLE WEAPON TO THE STARS!"
john: "we're on my timetable. you're fired."

- - -

john: "if he gets the wormhole tech, what will he use it for?"
harvey: "faster delivery of pizzas."

- - -

harvey: "i'll get back into the dumpster."

- - -

the crack.

ah, farscape crack is grade-a stuff.



"you fart helium?!"

- - -



officer muldoon: "you have the right to the remains of a silent attorney. if you cannot afford one, tough noogies! you can make one phone call. i recommend trixie 976-555-LOVE. do you understand these rights as i have explained them to you? well, do you, punk?"
john: "no."
officer muldoon: "then i can't arrest you!"

- - -

officer muldoon: "assault on a police officer. theft of police property. illegal possession of a firearm. five counts of attempted murder. that comes to... $29.40. cash, check or credit card?"



- - -

Wow. I'm speechless.

This was hands down the best Farscape picspam. Amazing work. :D It must've taken you forever to put together.

And in regards to part 5, I'm very annoyed about Australias awful handing of Farscape too, they could've at least shown it at 2am or something. I didnt even see season 4 until after PKW came out on DVD.

Edit: I also linked this on my LJ to try and get more of my FList to watch :D

thank you, i'm very touched :)

it did take for frelling ever! finding appropriate quotes didn't seem that time consuming, but bloody hell! i didn't include more quotes in the john/aeryn part because that would have taken another hour or two. i am going to fix that though, add more quotes, but not right now, i'm picspammed out, lol.

hello fellow australian! i hate channel nine!! and channel seven for non-farscape reasons :\

I watched maybe a dozen or so episodes over the four years they aired the episodes at random times on random days, sometimes changing from week to week. i only watched the show all the way through a couple of years ago. can't wait for the rewatch!

and thank you for the pimpage :DD
