Quotes

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 track and 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.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Jennifer says it's gonna get worse now, almost by the hour. In a week or so, I won't even remember my own name. How's about... How 'bout we say goodbye now?

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: No.

Dr. Rodney McKay: What do you mean, no?

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: I mean I'm not saying goodbye.

Dr. Rodney McKay: I'm saying it anyway.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Then I'm not listening.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Yeah, but pretty soon I won't even know who you are.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Well I'll remind you.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Yeah but I don't want you to see me like that. I want you to remember me as I am, as your genius friend, not as some shi...

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: -NOT happening.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Please.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: You're stuck with me, Rodney, just accept it.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Yeah bu...

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: No! And that's final.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Okay.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Okay.

Dr. Rodney McKay: [meaningful pause] You're a good friend, Arthur.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: [Looks over, sees McKay is joking, and spits out his beer laughing]

Dr. Jennifer Keller: You can go ahead Rodney.

Dr. Rodney McKay: I don't remember where to start.

Dr. Jennifer Keller: Sure you do.

Dr. Rodney McKay: No.

Dr. Jennifer Keller: Start with your name, like we've been doing, okay? We'll just go from there.

Dr. Rodney McKay: My name? My name is... Mr. Rodney McKay.

Dr. Jennifer Keller: No...

Dr. Rodney McKay: Yes.

Dr. Jennifer Keller: No. C'mon now, you're *Doctor* McKay, remember?

Dr. Rodney McKay: No. I'm not anymore. I'm not... smart anymore. Doctors are smart, so I'm *Mister* now.

Dr. Jennifer Keller: Okay.

Dr. Rodney McKay: I used to be the smartest person ever. And now... and now I'm not.

Dr. Jennifer Keller: That's what we're trying to fix.

Dr. Rodney McKay: No. You can't fix me.

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: 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.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Absolutely not.

Jeannie Miller: We're talking about saving your life.

Dr. Rodney McKay: [brandishing the drill] Look, my brain is not some new deck off the back of your house.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: I'm not the one doing the surgery.

Dr. Rodney McKay: [to Keller] Yeah, and as my parting advice, you need to stop letting these guys talk you into doing stupid things.

Dr. Jennifer Keller: I can do it.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Really?

Jeannie Miller: And I'm fairly sure I can modify the life signs detector.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Yeah, with my help.

Jeannie Miller: So help.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Look, this isn't one of those PBS brain surgeries where my scull is open and we're having a conversation...

Dr. Jennifer Keller: I have enough anesthetic to put you out, you're not gonna feel a thing.

Dr. Rodney McKay: It's probably a *hammer*.

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.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: [the team emerged from a Stargate that was unexpectedly underwater and is stuck on top] . Alright, everybody. We'll be warm soon enough.

Dr. Rodney McKay: I think I got wetter than you did.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: I don't know. I think I got a little damp dialing the DHD.

Teyla Emmagan: The research camp is further up this valley. I'm a little concerned for Dr. Nichols' team.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: [into radio] Anyone at the research camp, this is Colonel Sheppard, please respond. I repeat, this is Colonel Sheppard, please respond.

Dr. Rodney McKay: I'm pretty sure they're all dead.

Teyla Emmagan: We can't know that Rodney!

Dr. Rodney McKay: [in a hospital bed] Hey, can I go now? I feel a little silly lying here.

Dr. Jennifer Keller: I'm keeping you under observation for a little longer. Besides, I ordered you dinner.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Well, then you can observe me eat, because I'm famished.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: It's official: he's better.

Richard Woolsey: I think you've just made a case for my proposal to send a MALP ahead of every single transit.

Richard Woolsey: I know what you mean, thank you.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: I'm not going anywhere. You know, you wanna hang out, you just hang out.

Dr. Rodney McKay: I don't know what to do with myself. I'm sorry, I shouldn't have woken you up.

Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Look, it's a nice night out. Let's go have some beer on the pier, okay?

Dr. Rodney McKay: I drink beer?

Dr. Jennifer Keller: Honestly, I didn't expect it to work. I expected nothing would happen and that would be that. So why did it? You don't believe in magic shrines anymore than I do.

Jeannie Miller: Show him the readings.

Dr. Rodney McKay: Hm.

Jeannie Miller: That's what I said.

Dr. Rodney McKay: You said "hm"?
