Recap: Cowboy Bebop Session 18 Speak Like A Child

Short Summary

During some downtime, a package suddenly arrives for Faye who flees thinking it's something from the debt collectors. Spike and Jet take a look inside and find its a betamax tape. Curious of it's content, the two set out to find a beta player which has long since gone obsolete in the future.

Main Summary

  • Bittersweet Ending: The crew finally manage to get the equipment to play the tape and find it's a old home movie featuring Faye. But as she watches, Faye still can't recall her memory.
  • Otaku: The old electronics store owner the two visit.
  • Mood Whiplash: Most of the episode is fairly comedic then it gets to the end and changes to a more somber tone.
  • Ruins of the Modern Age: Once again explored as Spike and Jet head to Earth to plunder a long sunken department store. Amazingly despite being flooded and derelict, some of the electronics are still intact and functional.
  • Shaggy Dog Story: Spike and Jet bust their rumps visiting the ruins of an old department store. Only when they finally reach their goal, for Ed to reveal they had grabbed a VHS player which of course won't play Beta. Luckily another package arrival fixes that problem.
