  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (14)

    • Teyla: How long must I stay here? Keller: About another day or so. Teyla: I told you: I feel fine. I do not have a concussion. Keller: You're right. You don't. (Teyla frowns at her puzzled) Keller: Teyla, I've looked over your test results. There's something we need to talk about.

    • Teyla: Did you tell them anything? Keller: They said they would kill you. Teyla: You told them about Atlantis?! Keller: No! I gave them a Gate address – an uninhabited planet – just to throw them off, buy us more time, like you said.

    • Keller: Look, I'm the first to admit I'm not very good at certain things. I'm not athletic, can't cook, and you don't even wanna hear me try to play the piano, but I do think I'm a pretty good judge of character and I know that you would never sacrifice an innocent man – not even if he was a complete stranger – to save yourself. Which means the only reason you would even suggest it would be because of me. Teyla: I brought you here. This is my responsibility. If anything should happen to you ... Keller: I signed up for this, all right? All of it. I may not have had any idea what I was getting into, but that makes me no different from anybody else on Atlantis.

    • Ronon: Hey. Did Teyla and Keller get back? Sheppard: Haven't heard from them yet. Ronon: They're late. Sheppard: Doesn't sound like Teyla. Ronon: No, it doesn't. McKay: Well, she had that big feast last night. Maybe she did too much celebrating and needs to sleep it off. (He smiles. Ronon looks at him.) Ronon: Yeah, that sounds like Teyla. (Rodney's smile fades.)

    • Teyla: Can you walk? Keller: I don't even think he can stand. Teyla: Very soon many more Bola Kai will be here. Nabel: It's all right. I can walk.

    • Jewel Staite was nominated for a Gemini Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Continuing Leading Dramatic Role for her performance in this episode.

    Trivia (2)

    • As a rite of passage among the Athosians, children are sent out into the forest with no food, no water, and forced to survive on our own.

    • New Athos is the planet the Athosians were moved to after some of the Ancients returned to reclaim Atlantis in the "The Return (1)."

    Allusions (2)

    • Sheppard: Mr Freeze. No! King Tut. McKay: Wrong on both. Otto Preminger was Mr. Freeze; Victor Buono was King Tut; Vincent Price was Egghead. Sheppard: Egghead! Right! McKay: OK, so: Cliff Robertson. Sheppard: Oh, I know this one. Played the cowboy, right? They are referring to the villains in the 1966 TV series Batman and the actors that played them.

    • (Teyla cuts a piece of the animal and hands it to her) Keller: This was my least favorite part of Survivor. Survivor is the famed reality show in which contestants are regularly required to eat indigenous animals of the various locales where they're placed.
