Dr. Rodney McKay: You gonna eat your power bar?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Yes, Rodney. Told you, shouldn't have eaten yours so early in the day.
Dr. Rodney McKay: I'm starving! Usually Flora feeds us some sort of food when we visit. Come on, you hardly ever eat yours.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: No, Rodney!
Dr. Rodney McKay: Well, will you give it to me later when you decide you're not gonna eat it?
Harmony: You allow him to question you so incessantly?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: I guess I'm just used to it by now.
Harmony: Would it not be easier to beat him?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: We don't beat people where we come from.
Harmony: Why not?

The Worst Of Stargate Atlantis So Far!!
31 July 2008 | by HawksRevengeSee all my reviews

**This comment does not include spoilers** Boy do I second the notion that the earlier poster commented on. This episode makes absolutely no sense at all, and first you have a child who is to be the future queen and she lies, deceives, steals, and just about every cliché that a spoiled little teen girl can accomplish.

This episode has no redeeming qualities at all, I mean are you telling me that a future queen will have the wisdom for the good of the people.

I personally think any parent or guardian that spoils a child in such a manner as to empower them to abusive or disrespectful behavior should be put against a wall and shot.

In a world of 8 billion people there is nothing special about anyone that would warrant this type of behavior.

Mean girls or narcissistic women who look in the mirror and fall in love with what they see should also be forced to sit through a class at college called wake up call-101 That said this episode obviously was the worst of Stargate Atlantis so far and I don't think I would choose to re watch the mess!!
