An 11-man team from Destiny arrives on a planet and Eli records the mission on a kino. He interviews Chloe on her first mission, and she admits it's hot and sticky but not particularly frightening. Eli is soon complaining about the heat, and notices that Scott and Chloe are together. He notices Marsden and Johansen laughing together, but they won't tell him about what and he wonders if it's about him...

Episode Quotes
Eli: Well, this couldn't get much worse.
Rush: I'm afraid that's a failure of imagination.

Rush: Most people realize their own mortality at some stage of the game, Eli. It's not a particularly unique experience.
Eli: I know.
Rush: The question is, did it change you? Did it inspire you to make something of this short existence that we have?
Eli: Well, I'm here, aren't I?

(on the video)
Rush: For a moment there, I thought we were in trouble.
Eli: What??
(watching the video)
Eli: "For a moment there, I thought we were in trouble"?!
Young: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. It's Butch's last line before he and Sundance run out to face the Bolivians. One of my favorites too.
Rush: Well, well. We do have something in common after all.
