Avon: Shut up, Tarrant.
Tarrant: What did you say?
Avon: I said shut up, I apologise for not realising you are deaf.

Avon: Well that's a pity, since your own ideas are so very limited.
Tarrant: Don't try and bluff your way with me Avon. I know what's been needling you all along. With Blake gone you thought you'd got it made, didn't you. You thought you'd got control of this ship and a crew of five who'd say "Yes Avon, whatever you want Avon." But you reckoned without me!
Avon: That wouldn't be too difficult.
