"Stargate: Atlantis: The Shrine (#5.6)" (2008)
Jeannie Miller: Why the hell didn't you tell me my brother was this far gone?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: It all happened pretty fast, Jeannie.
Jeannie Miller: No... I got a message from him just a couple of weeks ago. He seemed perfectly fine; he'd never been so nice.
Dr. Jennifer Keller: That would have been shortly after he became infected. I didn't recognize the symptoms in time.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: It's not your fault, doc.
Richard Woolsey: Frankly Mrs. Miller, we contacted you as soon as we became aware of the seriousness of his condition. In fact, Daedalus dropped you off in the first available gate in Pegasus because we were concerned that you wouldn't make it here in time. We thought you deserved a chance to say goodbye.

Richard Woolsey: Dr. Keller wanted to take a moment to prepare him for your visit.
Jeannie Miller: Yeah, I think I need a moment myself. How did this happen to him?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: There was a little snafu on our last mission.

Richard Woolsey: Colonel Sheppard, when you reach the research camp, please remind Dr. Nichols that he is now one hour and fifteen minutes overdue for his scheduled check-in.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Alright. Want me to smack him around or anything?
Richard Woolsey: Just the reminder please.
Teyla Emmagan: Shouldn't we be concerned for Dr. Nichols' team?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: No. The settlement's a half hour away from the gate and Woolsey's got him checking in every six. I'm sure Nichols is just tired of taking the round trip.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Still, wouldn't hurt to bust his chops a bit. That Nichols is so arrogant.

Richard Woolsey: I think you've just made a case for my proposal to send a MALP ahead of every single transit.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Stuff happens, Woolsey. And by stuff, I mean...
Richard Woolsey: I know what you mean, thank you.

Ronon Dex: [trying to convince Woolsey to let them go to the Shrine] I'm telling you that in a matter of minutes I saw my grandfather go from someone who didn't know his own name to the man that taught me to dragon hunt.
Richard Woolsey: You learned to hunt when you were six years old?
Ronon Dex: For one day he got to hold his wife in his arms and share a meal with the people that he loved. And then he died with honor. You can say I was too young to remember, but I know what I saw. And we can do the same thing for McKay.

"Stargate: Atlantis: Misbegotten (#3.2)" (2006)
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.

Richard Woolsey: It sounds like you're saying you won't come out against Dr. Weir because you're not confident of the outcome.
Colonel Steven Caldwell: No, what I'm saying, Mr. Woolsey, is have a pleasant evening.

"Stargate: Atlantis: Inquisition (#5.13)" (2008)
Richard Woolsey: I was Harvard Law Review. I was chief counsel of the US Army Corps of Engineers. Prior to that, I was an appellate advocate for Hartshorne & Slaughter, one of the most prestigious litigation boutiques in all New York City. Believe me, I can handle three tribal elders with a stack of papyrus.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: You gonna tell me how you managed to pull this one off?
Richard Woolsey: Well, I'd say it was a combination of things. My legal skills, my eloquence, the indisputable logic of my arguments... and the bribe I offered Kelore.

"Stargate: Atlantis: The Seed (#5.2)" (2008)
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: How's Ronon?
Richard Woolsey: He has a bruised larynx. Apparently he won't be able to speak for several days.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Wonder if anyone will notice the difference?

"Stargate: Atlantis: The Seer (#4.8)" (2007)
Richard Woolsey: How did you *know* the two Wraith ships would fire on each other?
Colonel Samantha Carter: I didn't. Are you going to put *that* in your report?
Richard Woolsey: It probably would be better if I didn't. There may be such a thing as being too thorough.
Colonel Samantha Carter: Right.

"Stargate SG-1: The Scourge (#9.17)" (2006)
Richard Woolsey: Just to clarify. I'm going to be disassembled at the molecular level, then reassembled on the other side.
Lt. Col. Samantha Carter: That's right.
Richard Woolsey: And the chances of my being reassembled incorrectly.
Lt. Col. Samantha Carter: Highly unlikely.
Richard Woolsey: But not impossible.
Lt. Col. Samantha Carter: That's a word I stopped using nine years ago when I joined the Stargate Program.

"Stargate SG-1: Prototype (#9.9)" (2005)
Agent Richard Woolsey: All we have heard is that the Ori *must* be taken more seriously than the Goa'uld, that the Priors who represent them are extremely powerful and dangerous in their own right. And yet, in the months since this threat emerged, not one proposed countermeasure, not one shred of technology, not even so much as a theory or strategy to fight these missionaries has resulted from ongoing Stargate operations until now. And you want to freeze him.
Major General Hank Landry: Go, go, you're on a roll.

"Stargate: Atlantis: Vegas (#5.19)" (2008)
Dr. Radek Zelenka: [Discussing a fugitive Wraith] He could have abandoned whatever resources he had and just gone into hiding.
Dr. Rodney McKay: Oh yes, he probably got a job as a Klingon at Star Trek: The Experience.
Richard Woolsey: That shut down.
Dr. Radek Zelenka: Really? Damn, I wanted to see that.

"Stargate SG-1: Morpheus (#10.2)" (2006)
Major General Hank Landry: Mr. Woolsey's offer was part of the test. We wanted to make sure we could trust you.
Vala Mal Doran: I knew that. But were his sexual advances part of the test?
Richard Woolsey: What? That's- General, I-I can assure you...
Vala Mal Doran: Well, I would have even considered playing along, but some of his requests were, well, a little unusual, even for me.
