    • Sheppard: If we're not gonna do this now, and I mean right now, let's just turn tail and pack up, because they're coming.
      Weir: You don't know that.
      Sheppard: Our people are in the hands of the enemy, Doctor. Do you know what that means? It is just a matter of time before the Wraith figure out that this is the base of our operation-
      Weir: I just need more information. I mean, who knows, maybe we could negotiate a peaceful-
      Sheppard: Peaceful? Are you kidding? We weren't there for more than a few hours before they showed up.
      Weir: Is it possible they came because of you? (Sheppard nods) And that one of these people you brought back here with you tipped them off?
      Sheppard: It's possible.
      Weir: See, that is exactly the kind of snap decision I'm referring to.
      Sheppard: They're not all bad people. And you know, if we're gonna stick around here, we need friends.
      Weir: Okay. I see your point. Now you see mine. I will not authorize a rescue mission unless I'm sure there's at least a remote chance of success. I'm not sending more good people, including you, to their deaths.
      Sheppard: Okay.
