Sheppard and Rodney are on a diplomatic mission to a planet with a royal family. They meet with Flora and Mardola, attractive sisters who head the royal family. They thank Atlantis for their assistance and then ask one more favor: they’d like the two to escort their sister, Harmony, on a pilgrimage to ancient ruins to perform a ritual so she can become queen. Sheppard and Rodney are eager to take on the mission, figuring Harmony is as attractive as her sisters… until they find out she’s a pre-adolescent...

Episode Quotes
Harmony: Perhaps it would be best if you stop speaking. Your voice hurts my ears.
Rodney: Well, that beast can hurt my whole body, okay?

Rodney: I’m going to kill her.
Sheppard: You really need to work on your child skills.

Harmony: Provide me with cover. I will make it to the pedestal, summon the beast, and smite them.
Sheppard: There will be no smiting today, little lady!

Harmony: Dr. Rodney McKay and Colonel John Sheppard, your contribution to my people may never be repaid.
Sheppard: Well, we didn't do it for compensation, your Highness.
Rodney: (sotto voce) Kiss ass!
