    • McKay: I'm really sorry about all of this. Jeanie: Oh, I'm going to hold this over your head for...forever. Like, you're going to eat a lot of vegetarian food and not complain about it. McKay: Sure, sure. Jeanie: And you're going to read Madison three stories instead of her usual two. McKay: Right. Jeanie: You're gonna buy me a car. McKay: Let's not get out of control here. Jeanie: You almost got me killed. That's at least a car, a nice one. A hybrid.

    • Jeanie: Man, medical comas are weird. McKay: Yeah, you're not the first to mention it.

    • Fuller: You're not Dr. Lee sir. McKay: Oh, is that Lee's card? You know, we were just at the gym and, uh, must have swapped pants, so, uh, would you just open the door for me?

    • Sheppard: Where you going? Ronon: To get some food. Sheppard: Well in case you forgot, McKay and his sister are still missing. Ronon: What, and you want my help dissecting corporate structures. When you find someone to point a gun at, you let me know.

    • Kaleb: This is your fault. McKay: Hey, just a second. Kaleb: She got kidnapped because of you. McKay: Ok, we do not know that for sure. Kaleb: We don't, really? You figure four masked men with guns broke in here to steal her secret apple dumpling recipe? Jealous neighbor maybe?
