    • Megan: You shot my energy beam through a magnetostatic array? Mom! Duh!

    • Carter: I mean, they’re only kids. How much trouble can they get into? I mean, uh, Jo made it seem like the sky is falling. Stark: That hasn’t happened since 2004. And that was more of an igniting of the ionosphere.

    • S.A.R.A.H.: (controlling a car) I just wanted to get out of the house for a while. Dr. Fargo downloaded me to the car. Shall we get going? Carter: Uhhhh, you know what? I'm good. I think I'll walk. S.A.R.A.H.: Come on, Sheriff. We never go anywhere together. It'll be an adventure!

    • Henry: Nearly all the recorded data in Nevada was erased. Uh, tapes in video stores, floppy disks in casinos, half the database of Area 51. Carter: Area 51 is real? Henry: (nodding) No.

    • Dr. Finn: Enough! Look, this is not about who knows more or who’s the smartest. Forget the competition, forget the pressure. It is crap! You have created something amazing and now you have a chance to make a difference. Don’t let anything get in the way of that or believe me, you’ll regret it.
