Episode Quotes
Maj. Sheppard: You guys have names, right? Let me guess... "Steve?"
Wraith: I am your death! That is all you need to know.
Maj. Sheppard: I prefer "Steve."

Maj. Sheppard: Hi Steve.
Lt. Ford: Bye Steve. (stuns the Wraith with a Wraith stun gun)

Dr. McKay: (talking about Dr. Beckett) No, no... no, he just doesn't like going through the stargate.
Maj. Sheppard: He's worse than Dr. McCoy.
Teyla: Who?
Maj. Sheppard: The TV character that Dr. Beckett plays in real life.
