(talking about Teyla’s baby)
Rodney: I was dropped like a dozen times when I was a kid.
Sheppard: Well, that explains a lot. Why do you care? You don’t even like kids.
Rodney: It’s the principal of the thing.
Sheppard: Have you made any progress?
Rodney: As a matter of fact, yes we have.
Rodney: Me and the other McKay, who unsurprisingly is a genius.
Sheppard: So what do we do? Can we just throw this thing in reverse?
Rodney: Uh, yeah, it's a little more complicated than that. The first problem is navigation. They developed a coordinate system to identify the various realities and allow them to get back, but obviously that didn't work.
Rodney: That's not what bothers me.
Sheppard: Well, it kind of bothers me.
Teyla: Colonel, Atlantis is back, I'm picking it up on the sensors.
Sheppard: You know how to work this stuff?
Teyla: The last time the Daedalus was in orbit Major Marks generously offered to give... (glares at Ronon) ...both of us some preliminary training.
Ronon: I was busy
Rodney: In a spectacular feat of multi-dimensional mathematics, I have discovered a way to send the ship back along the path it previously traveled bypassing the navigation system all together.
Sheppard: Wait a minute, you're talking about putting this thing in reverse?
Sheppard: I just suggested that two hours ago.
Rodney: And naturally I dismissed it out of hand. But then I realized that, including the original designer, not one but two versions of myself have failed to make this work. I had to think not like me. In fact, I had to think the opposite of me, and it doesn't get more opposite than you.
Sheppard: …I'll take that as a compliment.
Ronon: Arg!!! (hits weapon control buttons)
Sheppard: Easy, Chewy, those buttons are your friends. Just keep trying!
Ronon: I'm trying!!
Alternate Sheppard: All right, that looks like the last of them. So, what happens now?
Sheppard: Well we go our own ways.
Alternate Sheppard: Just like that?
Sheppard: Pretty much.
Alternate Sheppard: Well, the thing is we do have a few questions. See, the Daedalus we know was destroyed two years ago in a battle with the Replicators.
Sheppard: Sorry to hear that. This isn't exactly our Daedalus we're just borrowing it for a while.
Alternate Sheppard: Okay, I have no idea what that means.
Sheppard: Like I said, it's a long story.
Alternate Sheppard: All right, Daedalus, good luck.
Sheppard: Thank you, Colonel. And one last thing, it's been a pleasure. You're obviously a man of great integrity, and a dedicated commander, and a very skilled pilot.
(Ronon looks disgusted)
Alternate Sheppard: Well, that's funny. I was going to say the same to you.
(to Rodney, holding her baby)
Teyla: I think you'll make an excellent father someday.
Sheppard: I've seen a lot of scary things in my time, but that thought scares me the most.
