"Stargate: Atlantis: Progeny (#3.5)" (2006)
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: You mean, you have a plan?
Oberoth: We do.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Great, let's hear it.
[Oberoth stares at him blankly]
Dr. Rodney McKay: You plan, I mean.
Oberoth: I doubt that you would be able to grasp its complexity and scope.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Fortunately, I'm very good with complexity.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: And scope.

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: And Oberoth will agree to this?
Niam: I believe Oberoth is attacking Atlantis as a result of that programming. If we can prove to him that it can be altered...
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: You think he'll see the light?
Dr. Rodney McKay: [sarcastically] Hallelujah.

Ronon Dex: Not much point in leaving without blowing this place up first.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: How would we do that?
[everyone looks at Rodney]
Dr. Rodney McKay: Oh, that's me. Right. Surprise, surprise. Look, why don't I just go on these missions by myself, hmm?

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Ancients?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: He's got one of their scanners.
Dr. Rodney McKay: So do we.

Oberoth: I am unaccustomed to repeating myself, however, leader to leader, I will say this once again. We will eliminate the Wraith at a time of *our* choosing.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: And you don't care how many of my people, or anyone else, dies while you make up your mind to act? You said earlier that your brothers' greatest weakness was their arrogance. May I suggest it runs in the family?

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Rodney?
Dr. Rodney McKay: Hmm?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Well, this cell is similar to ours. Is there something in the design that could offer a possible escape?
Dr. Rodney McKay: Are you serious? It's a jail cell.

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: I just had a horrible thought.
Teyla Emmagan: What if it is still happening?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Yes.
Dr. Rodney McKay: There's got to be a way to know for sure.
[Pushes John's head and John smacks his leg]
Dr. Rodney McKay: Doesn't really prove anything.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Exactly, but , while I was working on it, I figured out a way to create a glitch that, on my command, should momentarily freeze them.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: "Should."
Dr. Rodney McKay: Okay, if you will, I mean, dead in their tracks. Like hitting the pause button. Only temporarily, until they figure out how to override it.
Ronon Dex: How long?
Dr. Rodney McKay: Well, I don't know. That's why I said "momentarily."
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Days? Hours? Minutes?
Dr. Rodney McKay: Well, look, it's minutes, but I don't know. That's what I was just saying to him.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: 10? 20?
Dr. Rodney McKay: Okay, fine, you want a number? Fine, seven. 7 minutes and 31 seconds. Are you happy?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: No.
Dr. Rodney McKay: No?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: That's not enough time.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Okay, well, you wanted a number.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: A bigger number!
Dr. Rodney McKay: Well, it may very well be longer.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Or shorter.
Dr. Rodney McKay: I don't know. Look, you're missing the point.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Gentlemen, focus, please.

"Stargate: Atlantis: Misbegotten (#3.2)" (2006)
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Carson?
Dr. Carson Beckett: [Sitting in Atlantis' control chair] Elizabeth?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: How are you doing?
Dr. Carson Beckett: Oh, just peachy, thanks. You?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: I'm sorry to put you in this position, but you're the only person, besides Colonel Sheppard and General O'Neill, who've actually fired a drone from that chair.
Dr. Carson Beckett: Ironically, they're the two people I nearly killed when I did that.

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: It was their objection to having Atlantis under military control that put me in this position in the first place.
Richard Woolsey: Nothing renews your appreciation for the military like the threat of invasion from life-sucking aliens.

Richard Woolsey: I've never met an Asgard.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: You, I think, will like them. They've got a great sense of humor.
Richard Woolsey: Really?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: [smiles] No.

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: We've all logged more than a few miles these past few weeks. I'd just like to say that... seeing you now, sitting across from me... looking at your faces... It makes me feel very...
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: You don't have to say it.
Teyla Emmagan: We feel the same way you do.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Oh, she feels hungry, too?
[smiles at Elizabeth]

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: [stomping into Elizabeth's office] Just out of political curiosity, how much trouble is it gonna cost you if I knock this Woolsey guy in the head?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: May I ask why you'd like to do that?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Just an impulse I had, really. One, I suspect, I'm gonna have again, next time I see him. He may not even have to say anything.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: I've never seen you like this. What did Woolsey say to you?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Besides judging every damn decision you've ever made?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: John Sheppard, are you defending my honor?

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: [about Woolsey] I wouldn't be too hard on him. I think of all the circling wolves, he's the least likely to actually bite. In fact, he may even convince the others to leave us alone.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: All right, so, uh... no head-knocking.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: It's the thought that counts.

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: What are our chances of surviving a ship-to-ship encounter?
Dr. Rodney McKay: If I can get the manual interface working, I'd say... less than slim.

"Stargate: Atlantis: Tao of Rodney (#3.14)" (2006)
Dr. Carson Beckett: Alright. Like I said, as far as I can tell, he's as healthy as a horse. I'm clearing you for active duty.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Are you insane? Look, I need to be put under guard. Who knows what I could become?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: What are the chances it could make him more pleasant?
Dr. Rodney McKay: Oh, thank you!
Lt... Colonel John Sheppard: I'll keep an eye on him.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Thank you!
Dr. Rodney McKay: Can you still see me?

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Have there been any other instances of this power manifesting itself?
Dr. Rodney McKay: Powers. Plural.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: What else can you do besides telekinesis?
Dr. Rodney McKay: Well, super-hearing for one, and I'm not sure but I think I may actually be getting smarter. It's hard to say for sure because I was pretty smart to start with but, um, recently I've been having some ideas that I don't think even I would have thought of before.
Lt... Colonel John Sheppard: Does super-ego count as a power?

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: I think he's having a hard time accepting this can't be solved with science, no matter how brilliant he is.
Lt... Colonel John Sheppard: You know what he needs? He needs to... release his burden.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Yeah, well, you know McKay.
Lt... Colonel John Sheppard: Maybe Doctor Heightmeyer can help.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Actually, I was thinking more along the lines of you.
Lt... Colonel John Sheppard: Me?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Mmm-hmm. You lived with the Ancients for six months on the brink of ascension. You helped them face their fears and finally ascend.
Lt... Colonel John Sheppard: I fought a scary monster - that's what I do best.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: And for Rodney, I'm sure this seems like a pretty scary monster.

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Rodney, you're a good person. Know that we love you.
Dr. Rodney McKay: You love me? Really? All of you?
Lt... Colonel John Sheppard: In a way a friend feels about another friend.
Dr. Rodney McKay: You're just saying that because I'm gonna die. Oh, God. I can't believe I'm gonna die.
Lt... Colonel John Sheppard: Alright, just back to the blue skies. Let your thoughts go.

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Are you sure that this is how you want to...?
Dr. Rodney McKay: ...spend my last couple of days alive? Don't have a lot of choice, do I?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Rodney, I think it's very decent and noble of you to want to leave a scientific contribution behind, but I still believe there's a chance you can ascend if you put your mind to it.
Dr. Rodney McKay: We both know that that is a waste of time. Maybe you could do it, but...
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: I don't know if I could, but you are certainly selling yourself short by not even trying.
Dr. Rodney McKay: To be honest, I don't have the first clue where to start.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Stop thinking.
Dr. Rodney McKay: See, I don't understand that.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: One of the biggest things that holds people back is that somewhere deep down they believe they're not deserving. You have to... release your burden.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Oh, please!
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: I know, spirituality to you is a load of mumbo jumbo, but it does help people find peace with themselves.
Dr. Rodney McKay: But you have to believe.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: I'm not talking about religion. I'm talking about shedding yourself of guilt, of anger, of ill-feeling, of anything that makes you feel shame. And then you can focus all of your energy on ascending.
Dr. Rodney McKay: So what you're telling me is that I don't think I'm worthy.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Rodney, I don't know what you truly believe about yourself. For all I know, you use your intelligence to compensate, to make yourself feel better for other things you think you may lack.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Like what?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: That, I can't tell you... but maybe you could start reading your own mind?

Dr. Rodney McKay: Oh, I'm fine. No, yes, and it doesn't.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: What?
Dr. Rodney McKay: I can read your mind. Uh, everyone's actually. That was very cool for the first, like, ten seconds there, but now I'm finding it a little disturbing, so I'm trying to tune it out as much as I possibly can... well, sort of. Anyways, look, I wanted to get your permission to access the Control Chair. I've got some pretty interesting ideas for maximising our ZPM. I reconfigured the city's power systems, it's too complicated to explain, but trust me when I say that you are going to be incredibly happy with the results. Look, Elizabeth, I know you have every right not to trust me but I promise you, I'm gonna make things much, much better, OK? Good.
[McKay looks at Ronon]
Dr. Rodney McKay: She wants you to shoot me if you think for even one second that I might be trying to take over the city for my own evil purposes. I'm kidding. That was a joke. Is your weapon set to, uh, stun? Wait, never mind.
[McKay closes his eyes and Ronon's gun beeps]
Dr. Rodney McKay: There, I did it myself. OK, to the Chair Room, Ronon.
[McKay leaves]
Ronon Dex: Can I shoot him now?
Dr. Rodney McKay: I can hear you!

"Stargate SG-1: Lost City: Part 1 (#7.21)" (2004)
Dr. Daniel Jackson: I remember when we were first trying to get the Stargate to work, I would come here and just stare at it for hours.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Is that a-a gentle reminder that you've been an important part of this since the very beginning?
Dr. Daniel Jackson: Subtle, huh?

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: I've been awake all weekend. I-I... The reality of this is-is-is... It's an adrenaline rush.
Dr. Daniel Jackson: Hey, at least I know you have a beating heart!

[Bra'tac comes to the SGC]
Dr. Daniel Jackson: This is Dr. Elizabeth Weir. She's the new leader of this facility.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: [extends her hand] Hello.
Master Bra'tac: [concerned] Has Hammond of Texas fallen in battle?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: No, sir. He's-he's fine.

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: I understand time is short.
Colonel Jack O'Neill: Actually, it's all relative, ma'am. Carter could explain better if we had more time.

[Dr. Weir puts down a file and looks out the briefing room window into the gate room, seemingly in deep thought. Daniel Jackson walks in, notices her gaze at the stargate, waits a moment, then speaks]
Dr. Daniel Jackson: Amazing, isn't it?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: I don't really care!
Dr. Daniel Jackson: Okay.

"Stargate: Atlantis: The Return: Part 1 (#3.10)" (2006)
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Life isn't fair. It's just fairer than death.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Oscar Wilde?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Princess Bride. Good movie.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: You should call her.
Dr. Carson Beckett: Who? Cadman?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: You guys did make a cute couple.
Dr. Carson Beckett: It didn't work out. Maybe it had to do with our first kiss being through Rodney.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: [cell phones ring] Sheppard.
Dr. Rodney McKay: McKay.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Hello?
Dr. Carson Beckett: [only one not answering a phone] I didn't bring my bloody cell phone with me? What's happening?

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: [about Carson's turtles] Turtles are pretty hardy, I'm sure they'll be fine.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Plus, they're really good in soup.

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: I've been doing a bit of writing... working on my memoirs.
Dr. Carson Beckett: Your memoirs? About your time in Atlantis?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Yes, somewhat.
Dr. Carson Beckett: And on what planet did you expect to publish it?

"Stargate: Atlantis: Irresistible (#3.3)" (2006)
Dr. Carson Beckett: There's so much he can offer us!
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Is this the same guy who said he could cure my cold in a week?
Dr. Carson Beckett: I know my business, Colonel Sheppard. He happens to have created several remedies that are quite remarkable.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Really? That guy?

Dr. Carson Beckett: He's a very wise and kind man.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Are you feeling all right?
Dr. Carson Beckett: What do you mean?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: It's just you're acting... a little...
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Smitten?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: I had another word in mind.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: So everyone here... back to normal?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: We're still fine, John.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: No lingering desires? Secret longings for his touch?
Dr. Carson Beckett: It's embarrassing enough without you constantly reminding us, thank you.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Hey, buddy, I'd better get back and clean your quarters before the next scout.
[Runs off]
Dr. Rodney McKay: Right.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Rodney.
Dr. Rodney McKay: It was one teeny, tiny taste for research purposes.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Burn it.
Dr. Carson Beckett: All of it.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Right now.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Fine. Story of my life.

"Stargate SG-1: New Order: Part 1 (#8.1)" (2004)
Dr. Daniel Jackson: [about which System Lords are coming] And the last one is Lord Yu.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Yu?
Dr. Daniel Jackson: Eh, don't. Every joke, every pun, done to death, seriously.

Dr. Daniel Jackson: On the bright side, out of all the Goa'uld, Lord Yu has been the most cooperative with us in the past.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: I thought you said none of them could be trusted?
Dr. Daniel Jackson: Oh, they can't. Especially not a crazy one.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Huh, that's the bright side?
Dr. Daniel Jackson: More of a slightly less dark side.

Dr. Daniel Jackson: Well, if they even get a hint of the fact that we can't use the Ancient weapons to defend ourselves, trust me, this game is over.
Dr. Daniel Jackson: Too dramatic?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: At this point, not for me.

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: It's unfortunate you're being recalled. I thought we were making such good progress.
Camulus: Your demands were ridiculous. We had no choice but to terminate negotiations.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Well, give my regards to Ba'al.

"Stargate: Atlantis: Common Ground (#3.7)" (2006)
Dr. Rodney McKay: What have you done to him?
Commander Acastus Kolya: Nothing whatsoever, Dr. McKay.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Okay, let me rephrase that. What are you *planning* to do?
Commander Acastus Kolya: It's quite simple. I'd like to make a trade.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Before we continue this conversation another second, I want to speak with Sheppard.
Commander Acastus Kolya: Be my guest.
Dr. Rodney McKay: We'll rephrase that, too. We would like him to be able to speak to us.
Commander Acastus Kolya: [smiles] Very well.

Ladon Radim: Kolya believes I have taken his rightful place as leader of our people.
Ronon Dex: No wonder he's pissed.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Well, obviously, he has men loyal to him in your inner circle, hence the codes.
Ladon Radim: Those traitors will be found.
Ronon Dex: Sounds like you're the traitor to me.
Ladon Radim: Must he be here?

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Has there been any progress?
Dr. Rodney McKay: We have a list of planets where recent Genii activity has been documented, but we'd have a much higher margin of success if Ladon would be willing to point out firm locations of Genii safe houses and shelters, maybe even Wraith-infested torture chambers.

Ladon Radim: I came here as a friend, Doctor Weir. I hope to leave as one.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: And we appreciate your concern for Colonel Sheppard.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Despite the fact that it was your incompetence that led to his capture.

"Stargate: Atlantis: The Game (#3.15)" (2006)
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: How the hell did your face get on that flag?
Dr. Rodney McKay: Uh, I don't know. Here's the thing, though: that flag's very similar to the one I designed in our game.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: It's *exactly* like the one you designed in our game.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: What game?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: The game Rodney and I have been playing.
Dr. Rodney McKay: We didn't tell you about the game?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: We've been playing for a while now.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Yeah, off and on in our spare time, you know - at night, between missions, uh... I could have sworn we told you about it?

Dr. Rodney McKay: Don't worry about it. They'll work it out. Look, we just happened to catch them at a particularly bad time. Sheppard's guy's been doing a lot of aggressive posturing of late.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: The only aggression is coming from the people of Gelding.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Geldar.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Whatever.
[to Elizabeth]
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: His people are digging a mine across the border into Hallona.
Dr. Rodney McKay: The coal resources straddle the border between my country and his.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Barely! They go three miles into my country - which your people are happily tunnelling into.
Dr. Rodney McKay: It has been a point of contention between us, OK, but it is just a difference in cartographic interpretation. Tomayto. Tomahto.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: No, no, it's pretty clear cut. *You* entered illegally into *my* country.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Gentlemen.
Dr. Rodney McKay: [to John] You gave me no choice! You refused to negotiate!
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: You mean give in.
Dr. Rodney McKay: What do you care anyway? It's not like your people were gonna use the coal!
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Oh, yeah, that's right. You need it to power your medieval steam engines.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: These are not your lands. This game is over, so you'd better set aside your differences, because if the two of you can't figure out how to forge a truce, how the hell are these people going to?

Baden: I sent gifts of goodwill.
Nola: You sent crates of citrus fruit! Citrus! Do you have any idea what an insult that is to my people?
Baden: It didn't used to be.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: OK, see, I think I know where that comes from. Did M... the Oracle tell you that citrus fruit was bad?
Nola: He made us aware of its toxic properties, yes.
Baden: Everything is toxic to you!
[to Elizabeth]
Baden: If they're not busy insulting us, they're complaining about contaminated food, improper hygiene. Even the sunlight is dangerous to them!

"Stargate: Atlantis: Hide and Seek (#1.2)" (2004)
Dr. Rodney McKay: Hit me.
[Grodin hits him, but a force shield stops him]
Dr. Peter Grodin: Ow, God!
Dr. Rodney McKay: You didn't have to swing so hard, and notice he didn't even hesitate.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: I'm still trying to understand how you thought it was a good idea to test this device by having someone throw you off a balcony.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Oh, believe me, that's not the first thing we tried.
Major John Sheppard: I shot him. In the leg!
Dr. Rodney McKay: I'm invulnerable!
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Aren't you the one who's always spouting off about how proper and careful scientific procedure must be adhered to?
Dr. Rodney McKay: [singing] Invulnerable.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Alright, take it off. Let's go have this meeting.
Dr. Rodney McKay: You're just jealous.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Oh yes, green with envy!

Dr. Rodney McKay: This is a bad idea.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: You said that already.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Well, it's worth saying again.

Dr. Rodney McKay: [opening his eyes] What happened?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: You did it.
Dr. Rodney McKay: I did?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: It went through the Gate.
Major John Sheppard: You must have passed out.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Oh. Well, thanks for not saying the other thing.

"Stargate: Atlantis: Trinity (#2.6)" (2005)
Colonel Steven Caldwell: A weapon that could effectively eliminate the Wraith threat is very attractive to me, and to the people that I work for. I'm not hiding that fact. But there's more to it, isn't there? No more hunting for ZPMs; the shield at full strength; faster, more powerful ships. How 'bout a power source that could provide the energy needs for an entire planet? No more fossil fuels.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: I get it! And if it worked as advertised, it would be wonderful. I'm trying to tell you I know Rodney McKay and there are times when I have to protect him from himself.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: I can do that. Let me go back with him - just him and me. You can activate the Stargate any time you want to contact us by radio.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: He really sold you.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: He asked me to trust him.

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: [via radio] Rodney, I cannot afford to lose either one of you. Now tell me: can you do this?
Dr. Rodney McKay: Yes.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Are you sure?
Dr. Rodney McKay: Yes?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Are you sure you're sure?
Dr. Rodney McKay: I said yes!
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Because if you're wrong...
Dr. Rodney McKay: I'm not!
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: [to his radio] I'll call you back after the test - how does that sound?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: [via radio] You'd better.
Dr. Rodney McKay: [to John] I won't let you down.

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: ...putting your life and other people's lives at risk. You destroyed three quarters of a solar system!
Dr. Rodney McKay: Well, five sixths. It's not an exact science.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Rodney, can you give your ego a rest for one second?

"Stargate: Atlantis: McKay and Mrs. Miller (#3.8)" (2006)
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Has he talked about his sister with you?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Once or twice is passing. Usually like, "Oh, come on, even my sister can do that!" You know, that type of thing.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: And that would...?
Dr. Rodney McKay: Be bad.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Yeah, I got that.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: How bad?

"Stargate: Atlantis: Conversion (#2.8)" (2005)
Elizabeth Weir, Ph. D.: How are you?
Maj. John Sheppard: My body's mutating into a bug. How are you?

Maj. John Sheppard: Did Ronon shoot me?
Elizabeth Weir, Ph. D.: You had it coming.

"Stargate: Atlantis: First Strike (#3.20)" (2007)
Dr. Jennifer Keller: Look, after Carson... Someone had to step up and take over, and I'm glad to help out, don't get me wrong, but I'm not qualified to run a department of this size. You - you need someone... better.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Everyone down there says you're doing great.
Dr. Jennifer Keller: Well, a, I'm not sure that's true, and b, it's been pretty smooth sailing over the last few weeks. I think I've been lucky.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Well, the IOA are reviewing candidates but, to be honest, they're not that great at making quick decisions.
Dr. Jennifer Keller: Yeah. So, a week? Two weeks?
Dr. Jennifer Keller: I just haven't been sleeping very well. This whole being in control thing kind of makes me anxious.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Carson felt the same way his first few months.
Dr. Jennifer Keller: I appreciate you trying to lie to me.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Look, I feel very comfortable with my life in your hands, and at the end of the day, that means you're doin' a pretty good job. Dealing with the pressure - it does get easier with time.

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: So we can assume the Replicators are behind this.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Well, I hope so.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: You *hope* so?
Dr. Rodney McKay: Well, otherwise, we've discovered yet *another* super-powerful enemy.

"Stargate: Atlantis: No Man's Land (#3.1)" (2006)
Major General Hank Landry: Our tests of the Mark II generator and the chair in Antarctica are promising.
Elizabeth Weir, Ph. D.: "Promising." That doesn't sound very promising.

Elizabeth Weir, Ph. D.: [Talking about the IOA] I think they're going to ask me to step down.
Major General Hank Landry: Well, if they're just gonna ask, you can always say no.

"Stargate: Atlantis: Inferno (#2.19)" (2006)
Elizabeth Weir, Ph. D.: I should head back with you and begin negotiations with the Taranan leader. What's he like?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Oh, you know. He's a guy. Didn't pay much attention. Sorry!

Elizabeth Weir, Ph. D.: Hopefully we can establish an alliance with them. A ship like that...
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: would come very much in handy now that the Wraith are probably on their way: I know. Uh, I'm gonna get back there now: make sure he's not distracted.
Elizabeth Weir, Ph. D.: Distracted?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Ah, well, the lead scientist, uh, she's very, um...
Elizabeth Weir, Ph. D.: Hot?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: I was gonna say attractive. But McKay is acting very, uh...
Elizabeth Weir, Ph. D.: Smitten?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: I was gonna say pathetic.

"Stargate: Atlantis: The Gift (#1.17)" (2005)
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: You were right.
Dr. Carson Beckett: Lovely! About what?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Your theory of the Wraith evolving after the Ancients arrived in Pegasus galaxy...
Dr. Rodney McKay: Oh, you're kidding me!
Dr. Radek Zelenka: Pay up.
Dr. Carson Beckett: How d'you know?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: The Wraith language... It's a derivative of Ancient.

Major John Sheppard: You're saying Teyla's part-Wraith?
Dr. Carson Beckett: A very small part.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Which makes her about as different from us as you, because of the Ancient gene you possess.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Well, and some other things!

"Stargate SG-1: Lost City: Part 2 (#7.22)" (2004)
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: [over the telephone with the president] Prometheus can't win against an entire Goa'uld fleet, but it could buy SG-1 enough time to complete their mission.
Vice President Robert Kinsey: Mr. President, that is downright insane! I am relieving Dr. Wier and taking command of this facility!
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: [interrupts] Sir, from what I've looked at...
President Hayes: Will you shut the hell up!
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: I'm sorry, sir.
President Hayes: Not you, Doctor.
Vice President Robert Kinsey: Excuse me?
President Hayes: Consider your resignation accepted, Bob.
Vice President Robert Kinsey: You can't do that!
President Hayes: Oh please! I got enough on you to have ya shot.
Vice President Robert Kinsey: This is the biggest mistake you will ever make.
President Hayes: But I think I'll stick with my original thought which is shut the hell up!
Vice President Robert Kinsey: I promise, you will only live to regret this!
[exits the room]
President Hayes: Go ahead Doctor Weir.

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Well, have you got everything you need? I think there's still a sink in the kitchen.
Colonel Jack O'Neill: Is that a joke?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Perhaps. A bad one.
Colonel Jack O'Neill: Yes, very bad. But I sense hope for you.

"Stargate: Atlantis: Echoes (#3.12)" (2006)
Dr. Rodney McKay: Elizabeth! Did you get my email?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Which email? One of the seven today? Or one of the eighteen yesterday?

Dr. Elizabeth Weir: And how do you know he's a he?
Dr. Rodney McKay: Oh, because I cross referenced the renderings in the database with the whale outside and you'll see the males have a rather prominent...
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Oh it's okay. Never mind. I'll take your word for it.

"Stargate: Atlantis: The Tower (#2.15)" (2005)
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: We got the drones, we got a few Jumpers. I even got the girl.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: You got the girl?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Well, I mean I could have got the girl. I turned her down.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: What did you offer them in return for the drones and the Jumpers?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: A supply of medicines and an IDC if they need to reach us. We also offered to help them come up with a new way of running things when the time comes.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: They didn't offer you King?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: I turned that down too.

"Stargate: Atlantis: Rising (#1.1)" (2004)
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Doctor Beckett should be proud he's genetically advanced.
Dr. Rodney McKay: It's not more advanced. It-it is a random characteristic.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: This really bothers you, this whole gene thing, huh?
Dr. Rodney McKay: [sarcastically] Oh, clearly I am overcome with envy.

"Stargate: Atlantis: Duet (#2.4)" (2005)
Dr. Carson Beckett: All of his vitals are stable. His body's reacting like it has been struck by a Wraith stunner.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: So you think once the initial shock is over we'll have the old McKay back>
Dr. Carson Beckett: I'm afraid so.

"Stargate: Atlantis: Sunday (#3.17)" (2007)
Carson Beckett M. D.: Oh... wait a sec. Do you have a hot date?
Elizabeth Weir, Ph. D.: What? How did you know that?
Carson Beckett M. D.: I was joking, but I was right. Who is it?

"Stargate: Atlantis: Home (#1.8)" (2004)
Elizabeth Weir, Ph. D.: War and Peace. Mmm some heavy reading.
Maj. John Sheppard: Yeah. Well back on Earth when i was getting ready for this mission I realized there was a good chance I might be here for a while so i figured 'why not bring along a book that takes a while to read.'
Elizabeth Weir, Ph. D.: Page 17.
Maj. John Sheppard: I'm right on schedule.

"Stargate SG-1: New Order: Part 2 (#8.2)" (2004)
Camulus: This may come as a surprise to you...
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Oh, I'm not sure anything can surprise me at this point.
Camulus: I wish to request asylum.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Well, seems I was wrong again.

"Stargate: Atlantis: Allies (#2.20)" (2006)
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Rodney, if the hive opens up on us, I want Orion's drones.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Which means we're gonna need the hyperdrive to get in position.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Which means we'll need shields, which means you want everything!
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: I like everything. Can we do it or not?
Dr. Rodney McKay: Well, don't get up. Shields... yes. Jump to position... mmmmaybe. Release the drones... probably not.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Well, it's pointless to get in position if we can't fire.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Y'know, let's talk about it for a really long time. That'll help for sure.

"Stargate: Atlantis: The Return: Part 2 (#3.11)" (2006)
Major General Jack O'Neill: Please, don't be offended as I express my surprise that Landry would send you on a mission like this.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Well, sir, General Landry didn't sanction this mission.
Major General Jack O'Neill: So, am I to assume you are not surrounded by heavily armed SG teams and young strapping marines?
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: You've got Colonel Sheppard, Ronon, Teyla, McKay, myself and Dr Beckett.
Major General Jack O'Neill: Ooh! Dr Beckett, is it? Well, I'm comforted.
Dr. Carson Beckett: What's that supposed to mean?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: We've got a plan, sir. A good one.
Major General Jack O'Neill: Yes, Colonel, I'm sure you do. But in the unlikely event you don't fail miserably, you're fired.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Yes, sir. Look forward to that.

"Stargate: Atlantis: The Siege: Part 3 (#2.1)" (2005)
Elizabeth Weir, Ph. D.: What are our options?
Dr. Rodney McKay: Well, let me see - we have slow death, quick death, painful death, cold lonely death...

"Stargate: Atlantis: Sateda (#3.4)" (2006)
Dr. Rodney McKay: So many colors... all the pretty horses.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: What's he talking about?
Dr. Carson Beckett: I gave him some morphine for the pain.
Airman: I need to know how many villagers. How far is the gate from the village?
Dr. Rodney McKay: Have you seen a guy around? He looks like you, but he's got messy hair. I think I lost him somewhere. And - and a pretty woman, and a caveman.
Dr. Carson Beckett: I may have given him a wee bit too much.

"Stargate: Atlantis: Epiphany (#2.12)" (2005)
Dr. Carson Beckett: So part of his body is experiencing time at a different pace than the other? Who knows what that could do to him?
Dr. Rodney McKay: I have no idea but I suspect he could use a doctor.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: So you don't even know if he's alive?
Dr. Rodney McKay: The most time-efficient approach was to assume that he's alive but stranded.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Then why not assume that he can make his own way back through the portal?
Dr. Rodney McKay: Because Colonel Shepppard would have already had hours to try to make it back through the portal in the time I wasted explaining the situation to Conan and Xena.

"Stargate: Atlantis: Phantoms (#3.9)" (2006)
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: How are Rodney and Teyla?
Dr. Rodney McKay: He shot me!
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: They're both fine.

"Stargate SG-1: The Pegasus Project (#10.3)" (2006)
Elizabeth Weir: John, do you think you could spare Rodney from your team?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Hell... you can keep him.

"Stargate: Atlantis: The Siege: Part 1 (#1.18)" (2005)
Dr. Radek Zelenka: I'm more concerned about the Ancient database - its ability to back up data. It's incredibly redundant.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: [confused] 'Incredibly redundant'.
Dr. Radek Zelenka: [laughs] Yeah, that one never gets old. But seriously...

"Stargate: Atlantis: Underground (#1.7)" (2004)
Maj. John Sheppard: We have something they need and they have something we need. I thought that's what negotiating was all about.
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: Oh, well it is. Personally I stop short of offering nuclear weapons.

"Stargate: Atlantis: Thirty Eight Minutes (#1.3)" (2004)
Dr. Peter Grodin: The Stargate transmits matter into discrete units... the front half of the ship cannot rematerialize till the whole ship is crossed into the event horizon. The Stargate is essentially waiting for the continuous component, that's meaning the Jumper and everything inside to enter completely before it can transport them...
Dr. Elizabeth Weir: [Beckett stares then lookes at Weir] He says the Gate only sends things through in one piece.
