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 one where Shep and McKay babysit...
21 March 2009 | by cosmic_questSee all my reviews

'Harmony'~ Season four, episode fourteen

'Harmony' revolves around Sheppard and McKay reluctantly agreeing to accompany the haughty thirteen-year-old Princess Harmony on her pilgrimage that she must undertake before she is crowned queen of her planet. What starts as a babysitting gig turns into a quest to protect the girl from those who have their own agenda for who will inherit power on the planet.

Kids and sci-fi don't mix well so it is no surprise that this episode will not be a favourite for many since it heavily features a child, and one who is annoying at that. However, I did enjoy 'Harmony' because the child character is meant to be very much a brat and Jodelle Ferland, the young actress who undertook the role of Harmony, clearly revels in being exactly as pesky and obnoxious as possible. This is a humorous filler episode about Shep and McKay being lumbered with an annoying kid, who they could happily drown were it not for little things like morals! If you are determined to look for a lesson to be learned from the episode then it is perhaps an insight into the precarious nature of adolescent crushes (poor Shep's face when he sees the picture at the end nicely depicts that!) and just how ridiculous it is to allow bloodlines to determine leadership, especially when it forces an immature, inexperienced person forward to lead. However, overall, this is just a fun episode that is meant to just entertain.
