    • McKay: I've been examining the energy reading we picked up and it appears that Michael has somehow managed to modify the Wraith stun pulse technology and integrate it with the Puddle Jumper cloaking mechanism.
      Zelenka: Yeah, creating a kind of a stun bubble.
      McKay (grimacing): No, a forcefield – around the Control Room and the Gateroom. Look, while it's in place, we're not getting in there.
      Sheppard: Well, I know that. What you haven't told me is how we're gonna turn it off.
      McKay: That's because we haven't figured that part out yet. Look, it's gonna be very tricky.
      Zelenka: Yeah, you see, Michael is using the Puddle Jumper as an external power source, not only for the Control Room and the Gateroom, but also using it to power the...the stun bubble.
      McKay (rolling his eyes): Ok, enough with the "stun bubble."
      Zelenka: Well, that's an accurate description.
      McKay: It's a stupid description.
      Zelenka: It's a stun bubble!
