  • Quotes

    • Beckett: You see? Nothing.
      (Beckett gets out of the Chair and starts to walk away.)
      McKay: Carson. Get back here.
      Beckett: (to McKay) I could sit in that chair all bloody day long and nothing would happen. It's a waste of time. (to Weir) Excuse me, Doctor Weir.
      McKay: (to Weir) He's not even trying.
      Weir: But he's the one who discovered the gene this technology responds to.
      McKay: Yeah, well, he said he wished he never had it.
      Weir: Really?
      McKay: (incredulously) I know, can you believe that?
      Weir: (smiles) We could always test you a third time, Rodney.
      McKay: (annoyed) That's very funny.
      Weir: We've only found a handful of people who are genetically compatible with the Ancient technology and despite your heroic efforts to interface ours with theirs, we need every one of them to sit in this Chair, including Doctor Beckett.
      McKay: What am I supposed to do? He's afraid of that thing.
