Stargate: Atlantis - Season 2In which Rodney saves the city, shares his body with another consciousness and almost dies at the bottom of the Lantean ocean.
2x01 – The Siege, Part IIIRodney: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. What is this? This is my security escort?!
Weir: Well, we are spread a little bit thin right now.
Rodney: Okay. (to the Marines) Well, you need to know that if we come under fire, you're gonna have to put your lives on the line to protect me.
Rodney: Okay, I mean the ZPM. You need to protect the ZPM at all costs. And me.
Rodney: What was that? I didn't get all that. What do I do? Look, I'm getting good at the rolling things. Maybe I can do them.
Rodney: Oh, thank god. I mean, you have no idea. I thought I was going to -
Teyla: I thought you were very brave.
Weir: Rodney, we need a shield up in forty seconds or we're dead.
Rodney: What? Are you kidding me?
Rodney: Really? Because I can't help but thinking you're just trying to determine the point at which I completely snap.
Rodney: I am going to curl up in bed with the biggest sandwich I can find.
Caldwell: Can we submerge the city again?
Rodney: It's a city, not a yo-yo.
Weir: Okay, what are our options?
Rodney: Well, let me see. We've got: slow death; quick death; painful death; cold, lonely death.
Weir: How much time do you need?
Zelenka: A week.
Rodney: A couple of hours.
Weir: I'll take the second estimate. Go.
Rodney: (to Zelenka) What are you, union?
Weir: Why are you whispering?
Rodney: I don't know. It just seems like the right thing to do.
2x02 – The IntruderRodney: Major Sheppard was right. That's too much of a coincidence.
Caldwell: You mean, Lieutenant Colonel Sheppard.
Rodney: Oh, right... That's going to take some getting used to.
Rodney: Air person. Don't be there.
2x03 – RunnerRodney: What? I want to get Ford back just as much as everyone else but have you seen my complexion?
Sheppard: Making it the perfect place to hide.
Rodney: Yes. Or the perfect place to be exposed to dangerously high levels of solar radiation!
Sheppard: How come it smells like I'm on vacation?
Rodney: Could it be the simulated tropical aroma of coca butter?
Sheppard: It's strong enough for anyone within five miles to smell you.
Rodney: Oh yeah, like they haven't been tipped off by the Aqua Velva.
Sheppard: It's raining.
Rodney: So we'll be cold and miserable. Look, the cloud cover will depreciate a small percentage of UV rays but 95% of deadly is still deadly.
Lorne: Dr. Parrish said a day or two of exposure wasn't going to kill us.
Rodney: Oh yes and Dr. Parrish has a PhD in what? Right - botany.
Rodney: Here, try some. SPF 100.
Rodney: Yep. Can't buy this sort of protection. Make it myself. Waterproof too.
Lorne: (about Ford) Well, you were friends, weren't you?
Rodney: Oh, yeah. When we weren't out on harrowing missions we used to hang out together. I'd share my dreams of a self-sustaining fusion. He, he would talk of how you could sever a mans torso with a P-90.
Rodney: Ford? Are you there? It's your best friend, Rodney. Rodney McKay.
Rodney: I've been keeping a running tally of my lifetime exposure to radiation. X-rays, cellphones, plane rides, that whole unfortunate Genii nuclear reactor thing. My God, last week we flew dangerously close to the corona of a sun. As it is, I may have to forego reproducing.
Rodney: I think the fumes from the sunblock are making me dizzy.
Lorne: Wow. You must really be some kind of genius.
Rodney: Well, as a matter of fact I - Wait a minute. See, why would you say that now?
Lorne: Something has to have kept Colonel Sheppard from shooting you all this time.
Rodney: Yeah, yeah. Like I didn't see that one coming.
Rodney: Although the fact you keep referring to yourself in the third person does indicate clinical disociation.
Rodney: Shoot me? When did this escale to physical violence?
Rodney: Alright, you wanna shoot me? Shoot me! Fine, I don't care. It'll just save me suffering one of the many horribly painful deaths I have in line from being having exposed to this much radiation!
Rodney: What the hell am I doing? What the hell are you doing? Those are our guys!
Rodney: When did this escalate to killing?!
Ford: When you shot me.
Rodney: It's a flesh wound. I knew it wasn't going to hurt you!
Rodney: You can't kill an unarmed upside-down man!
2x04 – DuetBeckett: You have a date, Rodney? With a woman?
Rodney: It is simply two adults sharing some friendly - Yes, with a woman!
Rodney: Where is she?
Cadman: I'm right here!
Beckett: Lieutenant Cadman is still trapped inside the Dart.
Rodney: Who said that?
Beckett: I did.
Rodney: You said what?
Beckett: I said, Lieutenant Cadman is still trapped inside the Dart.
Rodney: No, no. I'm talking to Cadman. Shut up for a second.
Beckett: She's not here, Rodney!
Rodney: Cadman's not trapped in the Dart.
Beckett: Excuse me?
Rodney: (points at his head) She's in here.
Rodney: So, instead of waiting to understand what it was you were doing, you just sort of mashed on the keyboard, hoping something would happen!
Cadman: It doesn't feel very healthy in here.
Rodney: Well, we can't all be track stars now, can we?
Sheppard: Maybe there's something wrong an MRI wouldn't pick up. If you know what I mean.
Rodney: I'm not crazy. I just have another consciousness in my brain.
Sheppard: So he just looks crazy.
Rodney: But only because Dr. Fumbles McStupid here was in way over his head!
Zelenka: Yes! Yes. I made a mistake, trying to save YOUR life. Now do you want to try to fix it or do you want to berate me some more?
Rodney: I am perfectly capable of doing both at the same time.
Cadman: You have no idea what it's like in here, okay?
Rodney: Yes. Yes, I do. I know exactly what it's like in here because I live in here. I like it here!
Cadman: Maybe this is a good thing.
Rodney: Excuse me?
Cadman: I could teach you a thing or two about the opposite sex, McKay. Lord knows you need it. Rodney: This is hell. This is my own personal hell.
Heightmeyer: But I have spent quite some time as a couples therapist.
Cadman: We're not a couple.
Rodney: In any sense of the definition, not a couple.
Heightmeyer: In physics, a couple is defined as a pair of forces, equal in magnitude, acting in opposite directions. So you don't feel that applies here?
Rodney: That's very clever.
Sheppard: So. We're cool?
Rodney: No. You're cool, I'm fine.
Rodney: Okay, this is very important. Did you ingest any citrus? I am deathly allergic to citrus!
Cadman: Jeez, loosen up!
Rodney: I would love to but every muscle in my body is sore from your stupid workout.
Cadman: Well, consider the opportunity, right? To have a woman there with you, helping you out, feeding you lines. I really think you could learn something.
Rodney: Thank you for the offer, Cyrano, but I think I'll pass.
Rodney: What are you doing here?
Beckett: You invited me!
Rodney: Oh, I did, did I?!
Rodney: A toast. To you. We've been working together for some time now, a short time, but, um, in that time I've often found our interchanges very, ehm... What I mean to say is that you're very funny and smart and, uh, and from what I can tell, you make a delicious salad. So. To you.
Rodney: Alright, rock, paper, scissors. I'm the left hand, you're the right!
Rodney: This is never going to end. I'm going to be stuck like this forever.
Rodney: You don't have to do this.
Cadman: Yes, I do. It's your body, Rodney, and you're not going to do it.
Rodney: Oh, and what makes you so sure?
Cadman: They need you here. And, as much as I hate to admit it, I'm not as important as -
Rodney: Stop it! That's not true.
Rodney: I would prefer not to suffer a fatal seizure while we wait for you to round up more mice for testing so, shall we?
Rodney: Don't try to talk me out of this, I may very well listen.
Sheppard: Hold on, Rodney, I thought all the mice died.
Rodney: Well, what are we? Mice or men?
Rodney: Well, Laura, it's been... unique.
Rodney: Nice work.
Zelenka: It was your idea.
Rodney: Well, of course it was, but you were... there.
2x05 – CondemnedRodney: What are you - Oh my God, he's tasting it. Well, you don't know what that is. That could be their laundry.
Ronon: Pretty good.
Rodney: Oh yes, good idea. And when you're finished with their porridge why don't we try their beds, hmm?
Ronon: Want some?
Rodney: How good is it?
Rodney: I prefer lethal injection although I do have a certain fondness for the electric chair. Call me a romantic.
Rodney: Seriously, am I the only one creeped out by that guy?
Rodney: Margaret Thatcher wasn't creepy. Okay, well maybe a little. She actually resembled an aunt of mine. Same hairstyle, facial structure, only my aunt was much taller and remarkably hirsute. Oddest thing - she had to shave twice a day.
Rodney: What am I, McGyver?
Terell: You strike me as the type of man who despite being weak and cowardly on the outside, harbours a strength of character that he doesn't even know he has.
Rodney: I'm sorry, was there a compliment in there?
Eldon: The technology on this ship is far more advanced than the Olesians.
Rodney: How ironic then to have been shot down by the cast of Braveheart.
Sheppard: Stay close. And stay quiet.
Rodney: What? Why does he say that to me?
Sheppard: How's it coming, Rodney?
Rodney: Slower than I expected but faster than humanly possible.
2x06 – TrinityRodney: I'm just saying as a team veteran to the new guy, heavy lunch before mission departure - bad idea. I mean, even with the inertial dampners this whole flying thing's best done on an empty stomach.
Ronon: Yeah, well, I've got a pretty strong stomach.
Rodney: I can eat frozen dinners without even thawing them.
Rodney: Definitely Ancient design. Their latest stuff too. Their latest being 10,000 years old...
Rodney: You see that? You see? The way he lights up at the mention of that. It's like Dr. Vogol at the mention of pastries.
Zelenka: Come on, McKay. You read the equations. What else could it be? An Ancient typo?
Rodney: Well, we know they're not perfect because they're all dead.
Weir: I take it you've found something interesting?
Rodney: Interesting? How about the greatest discovery of all time.
Sheppard: A member of your team is in the morgue.
Rodney: And I am responsible for his death. Yes, I am painfully aware of that. I sent him in there and I will have to live with that for the rest of my life.
Rodney: Look, this is big. This is the wheel, the lightbulb, the hotdog big.
Sheppard: Best case scenario?
Rodney: I win a nobel prize.
Sheppard: Worst case scenario?
Rodney: We tear a hole in the fabric of the universe.
Rodney: (to Sheppard) I have never asked this of you before but I think I've earned it. Trust me.
Rodney: Look, I don't know how else to say this but none of you are capable of understanding this on the same level that I do. And Zelenka, that includes you.
Rodney: (to Sheppard) I won't let you down.
Weir: You destroyed three quarters of a solar system!
Rodney: Five sixths. It's not an exact science.
Rodney: I wanted to apologise about what happened. I was wrong. I'm sorry. And I wanted to assure you that I intend on being right again. About everything. Effecive immediately. That was a joke.
Sheppard: Good one.
Rodney: I've already apologised to Elizabeth. And Radek, and I thanked Colonel Caldwell for caring enough to spy on the experiment from orbit. Sent him a nice little e-mail, actually. But I saved til last because, honestly, I would hate to think that recent events might have permanently dimmed your faith in my abilities. Or your trust. At the very least, I hope I can earn that back.
2x07 – InstinctChild: My Uncle says it'll come and take me if I don't do my chores.
Rodney: He said that, huh? Well then if we get rid of it, you got nothing to worry about. You'll never have to do chores ever again.
Rodney: Yes, look, go away!
Zadek: Are you interested in science?
Rodney: I'm not sure that's what I would call this, but yes.
Rodney: I never could get into biology. It's just too much information about the human body. One time I took it as an undergrad. I diagnosed myself with half a dozen medical conditions before I had to drop the class.
Rodney: Yeah. Believe it or not, back then I was a bit of a hypochondriac.
Rodney: Easy now. You just went to all that trouble to save my life. It'd be a shame to kill me.
2x08 - ConversionRodney: According to the Ancient database a cave. Cool, damp and dark. Which I translate to scary, awful, bad.
Ronon: They're in there.
Rodney: And you had to pick it up and smell it to figure that out?
Rodney: Maybe we should make a diversion.
Lorne: You volunteering?
Rodney: I'll shut up.
Rodney: That's an excellent plan, Carson.
Beckett: Aye, I wish it was.
Rodney: You can't do that in time.
Beckett: No, it'd take days.
Rodney: But you said Sheppard only had 24 hours before the damage the retrovirus was causing him would be irreparable.
Rodney: Well then, that's a terrible plan, Carson!
Rodney: Well done, Carson, for once again elevating medicine to actual science.
2x09 - AuroraSheppard: A warship?
Rodney: See, look at his eyes. All lighting up again.
Weir: How long will it take to get here?
Rodney: Let's see. Given it's on the edge of the Pegasus Galaxy... Carry the four... 42 million years. Shall we go wait on the porch?
Rodney: Clever. But wrong.
Sheppard: Any way to figure our what they're saying?
Rodney: Yes, of course. It says right here: 'why is the smart one having to stop and answer so many questions?'
Rodney: What's the matter, Colonel? Don't trust me?
Sheppard: But is it safe?
Rodney: Would I be volunteering to go if it wasn't?
Teyla: Rodney, between the two of you, if something were to go wrong, which would be the bigger loss?
Rodney: Well, I've never thought of it that way, but... (to Sheppard) You know, she's right. You should go.
Rodney: See, the thing is, Colonel Sheppard and i have kind of gotten into the habit of saving each other's lives. And it's my turn.
Rodney: That's the wraith? She's hot. I mean, seriously hot.
Sheppard: Rodney, you're drooling over a wraith.
Rodney: I know. I disgust myself sometimes.
Sheppard: There are wraith ships on the way.
Rodney: I'm sure I mentioned that.
Sheppard: No. You didn't.
Rodney: Well, it threw me when she was so hot.
2x10 - The Lost BoysRodney: This is ridiculous.
Sheppard: Keep complaining about it and we may get there faster.
Rodney: Well, couldn't we have met these people on a tropical beach planet populated by tall, blonde women, hmm?
Rodney: It strikes me that this is a mission better suited to one of the lower echelon teams.
Ronon: Lower echelon?
Teyla: He means less important.
Rodney: What? I get nervous, I get hungry.
Ford: You taught me that.
Rodney: Yes, well, good for me.
Ford: Do I look crazy? Do I seem out of control?
Rodney: Are we speaking in relative terms or, um...
Ford: Hey, settle down McKay.
Rodney: No, I will not settle down! I've been drugged against my will, you little punk!
Rodney: I'm itchy. I'm itchy all over. This is exactly what happened when I toked pot once in college.
Sheppard: There's a good possibility that everything you're feeling right now might be psychosomatic.
Rodney: Oh, is that right Professor Science? Is that your expert opinion?
Ford: Jace'll give you the grand tour, show you what we've done with the place. How does that sound?
Rodney: That sounds delightful.
Ford: Good, good. Then if Sheppard tries anything off world you'll be nice and close for me to kill you both.
Rodney: Can't think of a better way of spending the afternoon.
Rodney: Let me see if I can couch what Colonel Sheppard means by 'wow' in more explicit terms.
Guard: Worrying really isn't going to do any good.
Rodney: Yeah, well I subscribe to a different school of thought.
2x11 - The HiveRodney: What is this, an Abbott and Costello routine?
Rodney: (to himself) Okay. You can take them out. Easy. Just a few well placed karate chops and down they go. Piece of cake. ... What are you, an idiot?
Rodney: And that's what happens when you back a brilliant scientist into a corner!
Rodney: I know what I need to do!
Weir: Rodney? What's happened? Where are the rest of -
Rodney: There's no time, no time. I know the planet. Not Ford's, the one the ship's headed towards. We need to get there and we don't have much time. I was barely able to escape myself but I managed to take out the guards. Oh, you should have seen me! I was amazing! I wish we got it on camera because - that's not the point.
Weir: Rodney, slow down. Are you alright?
Rodney: Yes, yes. I mean, um, I don't know. I mean, I did take out the guards and they were huge and dumb and stupid.
Weir: What guards?
Rodney: Ford's guards! Didn't I mention Ford?
Weir: No, you didn't. You haven't mentioned Sheppard, Teyla or Ronon either.
Rodney: YES! They were there too and there were the two guards. They were huge and massive and I have to take them out, so I had to inject some of the enzyme.
Weir: You took some of the enzyme?
Rodney: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. I didn't take some of the enzyme, I took a lot of the enzyme because I had to because I had to take out the guards, which I did. And you should have seen me, I was amazing!
Weir: Are you insane?
Rodney: Yes, yes. Now that I've taken the enzyme, yes!
Weir: Rodney, focus. Where is Colonel Sheppard?
Rodney: No, no, no. I had to take the enzyme because I had to take out the guards, but that's not the point. The point is we don't have enough time. We need to stop the ship from getting to where the ship is going .
Weir: Come on, come on. Let's take a walk down to the infirmary, alright?
Rodney: Woah, woah, woah, woah. What are you doing? No, no, no, no, no, no. I don't want to go to the infirmary. I wanna go to the, the um... (faints)
Rodney: Why aren't you dead?
Sheppard: It's good to see you too, Rodney.
Rodney: No, no, I mean - you know what I mean. Why aren't you... dead?
2x12 - EpiphanyRonon: Looks like a door.
Rodney: Yes, it is remarkably door-like.
Rodney: We extend the camera through, record for a few minutes, pull it back and play the recording.
Sheppard: Yeah... MALP on a stick.
Rodney: Yes, MALP on a stick. Very clever.
Rodney: Just back out if you encounter anything problematic.
Rodney: Yeah. Like poisonous atmosphere, acid atmosphere, no atmosphere. Hey, it's MALP on a stick - only shows you so much.
Beckett: So part of his body is experiencing time at a different pace than the other? Who knows what that could do to him?
Rodney: I have no idea, but I suspect he could use a doctor.
Weir: And why not assume he could make his own way back through the portal?
Rodney: Because Colonel Sheppard would have already had hours to try to make it back through the portal in the time I wasted explaining this situation to Conan and Xena.
Weir: I remind you only because from what you've told me, rushing is what got Sheppard into trouble in the first place.
Rodney: This was not his fault, it was mine. I should have looked more closely at the video. The clues were there before he even stepped through. Look, all I can hope to do now is fix this within his lifetime.
Rodney: I hope you got us a real Jumper pilot because I don't trust him (Beckett) and I can't fly the damn thing in a straight line.
Beckett: Very clever, Rodney.
Rodney: Uh, yes... it is. It was actually Zelenka's idea.
Beckett: I have a date planned with Lieutenant Cadman for tomorrow night.
Rodney: Oh, no. So we've only got twelve years in here.
Rodney: (to Sheppard) What is it with you and ascended women?
2x13 – Critical MassSheppard: She's one of the most trusted officers in my command. Not to mention the fact that she was stuck in your head for some time.
Rodney: Do you always have to keep bringing that up?
Sheppard: Like a dam.
Rodney: No, it's not like a dam. It's more like... Actually, yes it's like a dam.
Rodney: (to Cadman) Believe it or not, I have had some experience with these systems. More, say, than a tapdancing explosives expert.
2x14 – Grace Under PressureGriffin: You're not Spanish, are you?
Rodney: Oh, yes! Of the Barcelona McKays!
Rodney: Wide open fields. Wide open fields. Wide open fields. You are not stuck in a metal casket, thousands of feet under water. You are in a wide open field.
Rodney: Okay, alright. You've been in worse situations. Just because you can't think of any right now doesn't make it any less true.
Rodney: Is that really how you want this to go down, huh? You wanna freeze me to death? Are you sure you wouldn't rather I imploded with you, you, you, you - lemon! Do you even have an opinion anyways? No! Why? Because you are an inanimate object! Does that stop me from talking to you? Oh, no, no, no, no, no, my inanimate friend because I have been struck upon the head, you see!
Rodney: Look, I need to be the one on the surface saving the poor bastard stuck down here, not actually be the poor bastard stuck down here. By the time Zelenka comes up with a plan, I'll have died of old age.
Rodney: What am I doing? Well, I'm treating an alien whale like Lassie.
Carter: It's good to see you too, McKay.
Rodney: Oh, I've lost it. I have completely lost it.
Rodney: You are very clever, I would even give you brilliant. But there is brilliant and then there is me.
Carter: Why else would I be here?
Rodney: I don't know. Maybe one last romp before I die.
Carter: One last romp? Please, we never -
Rodney: Okay, one first romp, but it's romping that comes to mind, not your brains, Blondie.
Rodney: So my own hallucination is saying no to me?
Carter: You must realise subconsciously that you need to be talked out of this.
Rodney: I can't even hallucinate right today.
Rodney: You claim to be a creation of my mind and yet you are in no way dressed provocatively!
Rodney: I wonder why we never hooked up?
Carter: Well, apart from the fact that you're petty, arrogant and treat people badly?
Carter: No, that's pretty much it. Petty, arrogant, bad with people.
Rodney: Oh, wow. I'm arguing with myself about who had an idea first - me, or me. I really am petty, aren't I?
Rodney: Oh, come on! You're a figment of my imagination, the least you could do is take your top off.
Carter: See, this is why I could never have a relationship with you, Rodney. You don't listen to people. You don't trust them.
Rodney: I have every reason not to. Look, this whole thing is Zelenka's fault. He was the one responsible for supervising the Jumper repairs. He was the one who said she was ready to fly. He's the one who came to me, embarassed because he was afraid to fly at the best of times, not to mention a test flight. God, I should have just told him to suck it up, but no, no. I say, 'Sure, I'll take her out.' And now he's all safe and warm and cosy on the surface while I'm stuck down here paying for his mistakes. You'll excuse me if my trust in my fellow scientist is at an all-time low! If you want something right, do it yourself.
Rodney: No. No, I'm not going to fall for your plan, Lieutenant Colonel Siren.
Rodney: I think he's just waiting to eat me. I treated him pretty bad.
Carter: The whale?
Rodney: No, Griffin. I changed the subject. You of all people should be able to keep up.
2x15 – The TowerTeyla: Establishing good relations with our neighbours is not just about trade.
Rodney: Right, but do we need to make friends with every primitive agrarian society in the Pegasus galaxy?<
Sheppard: Alright, that's enough. They can't all be planets with cool technology and open minded women.
Rodney: I don't see why not!
Rodney: Well, that was a particularly unsatisfying meal.
Rodney: Yes, yes. The power of positive thinking. Very good. While you do that, I will rely on my experience and expertise.
Rodney: No, no, no, no. No, it's fine. Upon learning that your beloved friend has nearly died and is still facing the imminent threat of death, your first concern is for the ZPM. It's only natural!
2x16 - The Long GoodbyeSheppard: There are lots of programmes on dozens of channels, every day, all day.
Rodney: Most of which are fictional representations of ridiculously attractive people in absurd situations.
Phoebus: She is merely harbouring my consciousness.
Rodney: Oh, here we go again.
Rodney: Exactly, marines may have been injured. We can't go down there!
Caldwell: Can you hack it somehow? Override her code?
Rodney: You do know who you're talking to?
Caldwell: So, that's a yes?
Rodney: I would just like to state for the record that it is astounding to me that once again I find myself in the position of having to save this city when you and your space marines can't figure out how to track down two people!
2x17 - Coup D'etatRodney: (about Cowan) Well, that was refreshing. He didn't try to kill us even once.
2x19 - InfernoRodney: That was a standard military procedure. In the case of an earthquake one hides - well stands - in a doorway and, uh, just checks the... structural integrity of the building for the sake of the civilians.
Rodney: (to Sheppard) Every problem has a military solution in your world, doesn't it?
Sheppard: The ship in the hangar - maybe McKay can fix it.
Rodney: Oh, maybe I can fix it. Place the pressure squarely on my shoulders for a change!
Sheppard: Yeah, well, whether or not we live or die is up to Rodney.
Rodney: This is so unfair.
Norina: I have already learned so much from you, just in the last few hours. Perhaps one day I could study under you.
Rodney: Uh, yes, well. I really, um, really look forward to that. But first we need to get off. First we need to get off the planet, first we need to get off the planet and then you can be under me...
Rodney: Oh, you're doing that on purpose.
Rodney: You're creating an impossible task that my ego will force me to overcome.
Rodney: After 4.1 seconds of those extreme temperatures and pressures, our shields will be depleted.
Sheppard: As much as I'm all for living another 4 seconds -
Beckett: That's not very much time for anything, Rodney.
Rodney: Plenty of time to open a hyperspace window.
Rodney: That's my plan. Didn't I tell you about that?
Sheppard: And then what?
Rodney: Well, then Norina and I were planning a small dinner for us all. Nothing fancy, just -
Rodney: Well, what does he mean 'then what?'?! Then we won't die horribly!
Rodney: I bent my fingernail back. I hate that.
Norina: Yes, that can be painful.
Rodney: Yeah, I mean look at that.
Sheppard: Are you done?
Rodney: Almost. Look, does anyone have nail clippers?
2x20 - AlliesSheppard: Well, it's pointless to get in position if we can't fire.
Rodney: You know, let's talk about it for a really long time. That'll help for sure.
Rodney: Well, well. Turns out the human knows what he's doing after all.
Hermiod: Indeed. Your assistance on this project will be noted.
Rodney: My assistance?
Rodney: She actually did it. I mean, this is the mother lode.
Weir: What is exactly?
Rodney: Only everything you've ever wanted to know about Wraith technology but were afraid to ask.
Weir: You're sure you want to do this?
Rodney: Of course I don't want to do it! I just think it should be done.
