  • Worst episode ever ... bad plot, unoriginal scripts, too much emphasis on Keller, and overall ... just uninteresting.

  • Quotes (11)

    • McKay: I don't believe this. How did she escape? Neeva (in Keller's body): My accomplices no doubt intervened. This is not the first time we've been in this situation. Beckett: How many accomplices do you have? Neeva (in Keller's body): Two. Ronon: That's all? Neeva (in Keller's body): More than enough. Trust me. You don't want to challenge them. Ronon: Yeah? We'll see about that.

    • Sheppard: (to Ronon) All right, Chewie. Start trackin'.

    • Neeva (in Keller's body): But you could take me for a ride. McKay: What, now? Neeva (in Keller's body): Yeah. It would really help me relax. McKay: Well, I thought Becket gave you pills for that? Neeva (in Keller's body): They didn't work. McKay: Oh. Neeva (in Keller's body): Yeah, come on. Please? (Neeva moves in close and begins caressing McKay) Just you and me. Alone … Oh, you could take me somewhere secluded. We could … we could make love … underneath the stars. McKay: Really? Neeva (in Keller's body): Would you like that? McKay: Well … yeah! I mean, I'd have to get a blanket, though, because the mainland's ground cover is loaded with allergens.

    • Neeva: My accomplices no doubt intervened. This is not the first time we've been in this situation. Beckett: How many accomplices do you have? Neeva: Two. Ronon: That's all? Neeva: More than enough, trust me. You don't want to challenge them. Ronon: Yeah, we'll see about that.

    • Woolsey: What's the occasion? McKay: Visiting a friend in the infirmary. Woolsey: That's very thoughtful of you, Rodney. McKay: I know.

    Trivia (6)

    • Jannick echoed Daniel Jackson's confusion about the wisdom of explosion diversions.

    • Goof: In previous episodes both communication stones had to be into a terminal in order too both swap bodies. In the Stargate SG-1 episode "Origin" Daniel Jackson and Vala's bodies where rendered unconscious in a dream like state until they put the stones of the people they were connected to in the Ori galaxy into their terminal. This should have had happened to Neeva's body instead of Keller entering it.

    • Beckett: I'm telling you, her brain scan would have revealed any kind of physical trauma as well as any foreign organism. Ronon: Unless the organism's good at hiding. Sheppard: Yeah, it wouldn't be the first time. It took days to figure out Rodney was infected. They are referring to the episode "The Shrine" and the "Second Childhood" organism.

    • Keller came in contact with the stone in Janus' secret lab that was discovered in the episode "First Contact."

    • The security officer that shows up when Rodney hears about Zelenka's stabbing has a flag patch for India, indicating that that country is represented on the Atlantis team.
