Goofs

Elizabeth Weir is supposed to be an American, yet pronounces everything the way that a Canadian would.

This is most noticeable with the word "been" which she overemphasizes in a manner that an American English speaker would not. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Rodney McKay: Well, assuming that we're still alive, and there doesn't appear to be any damage as a result of the pulse, I think we can safely conclude that, uh... um...
[long pause]
Dr. Rodney McKay: I got nothing. I mean I've got nothing to conclude, I was just... talking for the sake of talking.
Maj. John Sheppard: You sure you're ok?
Dr. Rodney McKay: You know how much I hate certain death?
