Scott: Yeah, it is. It's weird how fast you can start to take something like this for granted.
Eli: So if the Stargate can instantly transport you to another planet, why did we fly here on a spaceship?
Scott: It's something to do with how this one's tied into the planet for power. Apparently it's been modified to only dial out because incoming wormholes are too dangerous. You're the genius –- you could probably tell me better.
Eli: All I did was solve a puzzle in a video game.
Scott: Well, you figured out something Dr. Rush has been trying to figure out for months ... which, by the way, a lot of people were glad to see.
