  • Quotes (15)

    • McKay: Look, where does it hurt? Daniel: Everywhere. I don't suppose there's a hospital nearby? McKay: I'm-I'm... pretty sure we're on our own. Daniel: Good... McKay: Look, I mean, on the bright side, I mean, we're both gonna be dead of dehydration in like five days, so you won't have to put up with me for much longer.

    • McKay: You know, we don't both have to go in there. Daniel: Well, when you get killed by one of those discharges, someone's gonna have to finish the job, so... (shrugs) McKay: Great pep talk, thanks.

    • Keller: We're on a space ship. Those doors are designed to be airtight. That means something as tiny as air can't even get through. How do you think you will? Ronon: Yeah, well, I'm bigger than air. Keller: Yeah… that's kind of my point.

    • Keller: What's our plan, what are we going? Ronon: We get to an access ladder. We head down two floors to engineering rooms. Then we cripple the ship. Keller: You… know how to do all that. Ronon: Yeah. Don't you? Keller: Not really. Ronon: Watch and learn.

    • Keller: You can't just blast away at vital systems like that! What if you take out the life support system? Ronon: Don't worry, the life support system is that tray. At least, I'm pretty sure it is.

    Trivia (9)

    • Goof: For a split second, in the scene where Jackson and McKay are in the suits about to enter the chamber, a projector for one of the computer screens can be seen on the floor in the background.

    • The two empty suits that Rodney and Daniel discover are not actually empty as they move slightly. Someone is clearly in those suits to stand them upright.

    • Daniel: (to McKay) You know, it has been clinically proven that referring to yourself in the third person is a sign of mental instability, right? On the episode, "Runner," McKay told Ford a very similar thing. McKay: (to Ford) Although, the fact you keep referring to yourself in the third person does indicate clinic dissociation.

    • Jackson: I take that back -- I have met an Asgard like you before. His name was Loki. He was experimenting on humans too, until he was caught and brought to justice by the Asgard High Council. Daniel is referring to the Stargate SG-1 episode "Fragile Balance."

    • We discover that Todd is at least 10,000 years old, as he said he was there when the Attero device was first activated after Janus had built it.
