Eli Wallace: I'd like to go.
Chloe Armstrong: Me too.
Eli Wallace: Chloe has been studying all of Dr. Jackson's work.
Colonel Everett Young: Really.
Lt. Matthew Scott: You have?
Chloe Armstrong: I have.
Eli Wallace: Say something archaeological.
Chloe Armstrong: Stratification.
Eli Wallace: That's good.
Chloe Armstrong: Thank you.
Eli Wallace: Plus, didn't you say you studied ancient history?
Chloe Armstrong: I did.
Eli Wallace: At Harvard.
Colonel Everett Young: Well, I don't see how that helps us billions of light-years from Earth, but I get it.
Eli Wallace: Pretty sure we've established that this ship is no safer than any planet.
Chloe Armstrong: Kidnapped by aliens, right here.
Colonel Everett Young: I don't have a problem with either of you going; I never said I did. Just be careful.
Dr. Daniel Jackson: Professor Rush? Professor Rush... Hi, I'm Dr. Daniel Jackson.
Dr. Nicholas Rush: So you are.
Dr. Daniel Jackson: I'm sorry to accost you here. I dropped by your office and they told me that you hadn't come in for the day.
Dr. Nicholas Rush: Do you know, I really don't have time for this.
Dr. Daniel Jackson: Actually I think you're going to want to hear what I have to say. Is there someplace more private where we could talk?
Dr. Nicholas Rush: You're going to tell me about the stargate program. Your current dilemma - how to unlock the stargate's ninth and final chevron. Specifically, how much energy will be required.
Dr. Daniel Jackson: How do you know that? Those details are highly classified.
Dr. Nicholas Rush: The project hasn't even been named yet, has it? How about 'Icarus'? I know because it's already happened, and you're just a figment of my imagination. Reliving all of this is just a necessary evil, an unfortunate side-effect to a process I can't control, and it keeps getting in the bloody way of what I need to do. You, the university, the clouds in the sky, all just a dream, a distant memory, and one I'd really rather went away.
Gloria Rush: I've spent most of the last twenty years watching what I ate, denying myself the things I most love. And now, I could eat anything I want and nothing seems appealing.
Dr. Nicholas Rush: [Briefly looking up from notebook] Yeah.
Gloria Rush: Why are you here, Nick?
Dr. Nicholas Rush: Because this is what happened.
Gloria Rush: You have work to do; go do it.
Dr. Nicholas Rush: I am doing it. It doesn't seem to matter where I am.
Gloria Rush: You have the chance to change so many things. The one thing you can't change is what's happening to me. Don't let that hold you back.
[Rush closes his notebook, stands and take's Gloria's hand]
Gloria Rush: When the time comes I know you'll be there.
