Quotes

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.

Teyla Emmagan: Might it not be possible that these people merely discoved this city, as you discovered Atlantis?

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Wouldn't be surprised. They didn't seem very Ancienty to me.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Ancienty?

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Yes, that's the word I was looking for.

Niam: He brought you food.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Oh good! I'm starving!

Niam: Oberoth can be... intractable.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Not exactly the word I was looking for.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Un-Ancienty?

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Not that word either.

Niam: It is real, Dr. McKay. Your minds are no longer being probed.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Good to know it was just our minds.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Oh, please don't make me sick.

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?

[Ronon sets it to stun]

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Friendlier.

Teyla Emmagan: And you've had no trouble with the wraith?

Niam: No.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Any particular reason?

Niam: The wraith do not concern us.

Dr. Rodney McKay: [to John] Ah, see? He didn't answer my question.

[to Niam]

Dr. Rodney McKay: I'm sorry, you didn't actually answer my question.

Niam: [regarding ZPMs] Oh yes. We have many of those.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Exactly how many is many?

Dr. Rodney McKay: Exactly doesn't matter. Many is plenty.

Dr. Rodney McKay: [regarding ZPMs] I assume that you... built them yourselves?

Niam: Yes.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Yes.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Easy, Rodney, you're slobbering.

Dr. Rodney McKay: He says the other Ancients are arrogant?

Niam: I'm sorry if you thought Oberoth was condescending in any way.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: How 'bout in every way.

Niam: It is difficult for him to see you as capable of understanding.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Yeah, well, how many Ph.Ds does he have?

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?

Oberoth: Lower your weapons.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: How much lower would you like them?

Oberoth: Do you really wish to challenge us?

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Maybe the floor?

[lowers weapon]

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. Rodney McKay: [John is going to manually set off the self-destruct] No, no, no! I can't let you do this, not without tossing a coin or something! It doesn't seem right!

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: I appreciate the offer, Rodney. Now, get out of here!

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: What'd they do to you?

Dr. Rodney McKay: Torture, in ways to hideous and... intimate to recount?

Ronon Dex: Like what?

Dr. Rodney McKay: I said "too hideous to recount."

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: This is bad. They're very similar to an artificle intelligence that SG-1 encountered several years ago that evolved from a tiny block replicator into human form. They may even be related somehow.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: I read those reports. Stargate Command could barely defeat the human form replicators.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Which is why I said, "this is bad."

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: How's it coming Rodney?

Dr. Rodney McKay: Slowly.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: What's the hold-up?

Dr. Rodney McKay: What's the hold-up? Do you have any idea what I'm trying to do here?

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Niam gave you access to the program code, and you're screwing around with it.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Oh, that is so... relatively accurate.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Thank you.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Still, we're not dealing with Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots here. We are dealing with a complex codeof over three billion chemical base sequences. It's like trying to reconfigure the DNA double helix.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Okay, so, what? Five minutes?

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.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: So much for seven and a half minutes.

Dr. Rodney McKay: It was an *arbitrary* number.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Look, as soon as I trigger the overload there'll be practically zero lag time before it blows.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Practically?

Dr. Rodney McKay: Okay, so, like, a few seconds for it to build up power -

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: How many seconds?

Dr. Rodney McKay: I don't know.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: 5? 10?

Dr. Rodney McKay: Again with the arbitrary numbers!

Dr. Rodney McKay: Either the Ancients purposely conceiled every record, extremely well, I might add, or they simply deleted them from the database. I'm leaning towards the latter.

Dr. Radek Zelenka: Perhaps the think they've truly destroyed them all.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Or they didn't want anyone to know they failed.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Again. God, there is nothing more annoying than people who won't admit their own mistakes.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: [He and Radek share a look] True.
