McKay: Heard the rumor?
Zelenka: No, what rumor?
McKay: Nevermind. Forget I mentioned it.
Zelenka: What is this about?
McKay: No, it would be irresponsible for me to say anything. All right, look, if you're going to twist my arm the IOA has made their final decision. They've chosen the new leader of Atlantis.
Zelenka: Well, who is it?
McKay: Well, there's been no formal announcement, but word is they're going with their foremost expert in ancient technology and replicator activity. Who does that sound like to you?
McKay: Yes, who else?
Zelenka: Well, I heard they were leaning towards someone with a science background.
McKay: And why not? It's about time that one of us end up in a position of real power.
Zelenka: Oh, and by us, you mean you.
McKay: Exactly! It's kinda scary, though, you know. I'll be making decisions that not only affect just the city but the entire galaxy!
Zelenka: Yes, scary. VERY SCARY!
McKay: On the other hand, a leader never second guesses himself. I'm up to the challenge. I know I am. I'm going to make them proud! Radek, I'm going to make you proud!
