Episode Quotes
Sheppard: This is either the most elaborate practical joke of all time, or I'm in serious trouble here.

McKay Hologram: Hey there!
Sheppard: Rodney!
McKay Hologram: Ah, it's good to see you again.
Sheppard: You're a hologram.
McKay Hologram: No!

Sheppard: This is a practical joke.
McKay Hologram: No, I'm afraid not. Freak accident. Sorry.
Sheppard: You're telling me I just traveled forty eight thousand years into the future in ten seconds?
McKay Hologram: I know-- it is kind of cool when you think about it, isn't it?
Sheppard: Surfing a thirty foot wave in Waimei is cool. Dating a supermodel is cool. This is not cool!

McKay Hologram: Finally they decided to give her a new ship--Phoenix. Barely off the assembly line; half the Asgard systems weren't finished; the other half weren't working. We spent the better part of a month getting her ready for combat. We worked day and night, side by side. Zelenka might have been there as well. I don't really remember.

Rodney: Look, I know you have been debriefed about all the future events, all the things we have to avoid, but there is one more thing I need to know: Do I still have hair?
Sheppard: No.
