  • Quotes (23)

    • McKay: (on morphine) So many colors...all the pretty horses. Weir: What's he talking about? Beckett: I gave him some morphine for the pain. Major: I need to know how many villagers. How far is the gate from the village? McKay: Have you seen a guy around? He looks like you, but he's got messy hair. I think I lost him somewhere, and a pretty girl and a caveman. Beckett: I may have given him a wee bit much.

    • McKay: What the hell is going on down there? Sheppard: Ronon thinks he can get the head Wraith responsible for all this to come down and fight him if we kill all these Wraith first. McKay: That is the stupidest plan I have ever heard. Sheppard: I don't know, killing a bunch of Wraith always seems like a good idea to me. McKay: They outnumber you 25-to-3. Beckett: It's actually 22-to-3. 21. Teyla: And Ronon appears to be quite angry. McKay: (sarcastically) Well that evens it out.

    • Ronon: You kill him before I do, I kill you. Sheppard: What if he kills you first? Ronon: Then you kill him.

    • McKay: I'm going. Beckett: You can barely walk! McKay: I can walk fine, I just can't sit. Beckett: And you're a terrible shot. McKay: Oh, and you're Rambo now?

    • Beckett: (about Ronan) Oh, you're buddies now, are ya? McKay: Yeah, more than that, he saved my life. He's like a brother to me. Beckett: Aye, a brother who got every gene you didn't, and vice versa.

    Trivia (3)

    • In a flashback, Ronon and Melena argue about how he wants her to go offworld with Kell, who was Ronon's task master and was seen (and killed by Ronon) in "Trinity."

    • After McKay gets shot in the backside, he refers several times to not being able to sit down. However, during most of his time in the Puddle Jumper on Sateda, he was sitting in the cockpit.

    • Goof: In the flashback, when Ronon reunites with Melena at the hospital, he asks her to leave with him, saying he can get them to the Stargate. But in his first appearance in "Runner", Ronon said "I've always known it as the 'Ring of the Ancestors'."

    Allusions (1)

    • McKay: Oh, what, and you're Rambo now?! This is a clear allusion to the popular cult movies Rambo starring Sylvester Stallone. The Rambo movies, the first of which was First Blood were often violent and bloody, due to Rambo's excellent shooting capabilities - something McKay believes that Beckett doesn't have.
