The team takes an expedition to a new planet and check out the woods. Greer and Scott decides to hunt a few of the resident deer-like creatures and prepare to open fire.

Scott yells at Greer to shoot, but he freezes instead...

Episode Quotes
Scott: Wow. Space deer.
Chloe: They're beautiful.
Greer: They're going to look even more beautiful slow-roasted and served up with a side of Becker's mash.

Park: No, you guys can't kill those creatures. And this has nothing to do with being a vegetarian. We don't know anything about them. They could be intelligent.
Scott: We just saw one of them eat its own vomit. How smart can they be?

Greer: Look, I'll tell you what. If they can give me one good reason why I shouldn't eat them, I won't. But it better be a good one, because I am mighty hungry.

Eli: I am not afraid of him
Rush: Afraid of whom?
Eli: Who. I think it’s “who.” “Afraid of who.”
Rush: Afraid not.

Dale Volker: Okay, well, then, uhn, what type am I?
Rush: The good friend type, obviously. The trusted confidant. The guy who's always there with, uh, the shoulder to cry on. And that's just life, I'm afraid. We all have our predestined roles, but, you know, on the bright side, a life free of romantic entanglements, well... it certainly benefits the pursuit of science.
