You know, I actually enjoy "Taking the Stone" for little moments that it has. I love the exchange between Chiana and Crichton at the end:
"Hey, old man."
"Hey, little girl."
But generally speaking, it is concerned one of the worst episodes of the entire series.
"Crackers Don't Matter," however, is absolutely fantastic and sneakily introduces you to a new character that will play a major role for years to come.
