  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (14)

    • Lorne: No sign of the rest of the crew. Whoever attacked the ship must have taken them prisoner. McKay: Including our friend. Sheppard: Stop calling him that. It's weird. Ronon: Then what do we call him? Sheppard: I don't know. Let's go with ... Todd. (Rodney grimaces at him.) Sheppard: It's a guy I knew in college. He was very pale. McKay: Todd's a terrible name! Sheppard: You got a better one? McKay: As a matter of fact, I do ... Sheppard: (interrupting) You know what? Forget I asked.

    • Sheppard: How big is this place? McKay: Don't worry, I got an excellent sense of direction. Sheppard: Didn't you say you got lost in a garden maze once? McKay: I was ten, plus I was running from a bee.

    • Teyla: I exposed my unborn child to the mind of a killer. Even before he's opened his eyes on the world. Sheppard: He? Teyla: It's a boy. Sheppard: Really? I thought you didn't want Keller to tell you anything. Teyla: She didn't. Sheppard: Okay. Teyla: You were right to question my involvement in this mission. There was a time I would have laid down my life for you, or Ronon, or Rodney, without hesitation. But, I have other considerations now. Sheppard: That's understandable. Teyla: You have no idea how close she came to extinguishing his life. If you had hesitated, for even a moment...

    • Queen: I don't believe that I have ever encountered such resistance from a human before. Sheppard: I've had a lot of practice.

    • Lorne: Listen, I never got the chance to congratulate you. It's really great. I didn't even know you were dating anyone. My sister has a couple of kids, two boys, five and seven. I miss being around them. Teyla: I'm not really sure what to expect. Lorne: Nobody ever is. At least not with the first one. But you get through it. You're going to make a great mom. Teyla: Thank you. I wish I could be so sure.

    Trivia (6)

    • The Wraith used cloning technology in their war against the Lanteans. The Hive Queen would create several warriors naturally to be used as templates then the machines would duplicate the gene patterns of those Wraith several thousand times creating an instant army.

    • Queen: I don't believe that I have ever encountered such resistance from a human before. Sheppard: I've had a lot of practice. Sheppard encountered Wraith Queens and their control tactics in the Season 1 episode "Rising 2", Season 2's "The Hive", and Season 3's "Submersion".

    • In this episode another Hive ship is destroyed by Sheppard. This brings the total to fourteen since the expedition arrived in the galaxy.

    • The Wraith use the Z.P.M. to power their cloning facility. This shows that the Wraith have a firm grasp of Ancient technology and the ability to integrate with their own.

    • Teyla is having a boy.
