  • Quotes

    • (The team are in the locker room, getting ready for the next mission, when Teyla enters. She tries to convince Sheppard to allow her to go on the mission)
      Teyla: ...I would like to accompany you on this mission.
      Sheppard: (With his back to Teyla) Well, we got it covered
      Teyla: John, I understand what you are trying to do but I assure you, it is not necessary.
      (Everyone in the room looks at Teyla and Sheppard)
      Teyla: My skills have not diminished, and I still have much to offer the team.
      (Sheppard motions Major Lorne to leave)
      Lorne: Alright guys, let's head out.(To Sheppard) We'll wait for you in the Jumper Bay, sir.
      (Everyone leaves except McKay, who stays to listen to the conversation. Ronon grabs him and drags him out)
      McKay: Wah, I'm not even...
      Sheppard:(To Teyla) I'm not having this conversation again.
      Teyla: We have not had it yet. In fact, we've barely spoken since I told you I was pregnant.
      Sheppard: It's been a little busy around here.
      Teyla: I understand why you did not want me to join the attack on the Replicator world, but that was a special circumstance.
      Sheppard: Look, even the simplest op can become dangerous.
      Teyla: And I accept that.
      Sheppard: You think it's that simple?
      Teyla: Is this about you trying to protect me, or are you still angry because I did not tell you sooner?!
      Sheppard: This is about your people missing, this is about the father of your child missing - you wanna go out, you wanna tear it up, you wanna kick ass, but you can't! And the sooner you realise that ,the better!
      (Sheppard walks away)
