[edit] Synopsis

[edit] Plot

An alien intruder appears to be in the city, and threatens the security of the base, whilst McKay activates an Ancient device that lands him into trouble. In the mean time one of the Athosian children is lost in the city and with the intruder.

[edit] Bloopers

[edit] General Blooper

    • The Chocolate bar that he holds in his hands should have activated the shield.

[edit] Mistakes During Filming

    • McKay who is behind the forcefield for almost a day, doesn't have any beard growth, and in fact, looks as if he cut it before every scene.

[edit] Inconsistency

    • Weir points out that every expedition team member was allowed to take ONE personal item with them. Sheppard has more than one: the football game tape, at least tree books (the one he is reading in this episode and there is another small one lying near his bed and War and Peace in HOME), also the Jonny Cash poster in THE GIFT

[edit] Quotes

Carson: He fainted.
McKay: oh there's got to be a better word.
Carson: Faint is the proper medical term.
McKay: I passed out from manly hunger.
Sheppard: Well Hang in there. (on radio) Dr Weir this is Sheppard. McKay's Okay, he... uh, he fainted
Peter: Of course. We're still in the process of making sure that everyone's been assigned living quarters. Major Sheppard seems to be taking his time Okaying enough space.
Weir: Well, the safety and security of this expedition are his.
McKay: Ok ready
Sheppard pushes McKay of the balcony of the control room into the gate room.
Sheppard: Whoa did you see that?
Weir: Yes what the.
McKay: I'm fine
McKay: Look Beckett's gene therapy worked. I was able to activate this. It's a... uh, personal shield acts like a protective skin and it must have inertial dampening features too, because I didn't feel a thing. Watch this. (turns to Peter) Hit me.
Without Hesitation, he punches and hits a forcefield
Peter: Ahhowww God
McKay: Didn't have to swing so hard and notice he didn't even hesitate.
Weir: I'm still trying to understand, how you thought it was a good idea to test this device by having someone throw you off a balcony
McKay: Oh believe me that's not the first thing we tried.
Sheppard: I shot him. (Weir looking shocked) In the leg.
Weir: Everyone needs to understand that they are not to touch anything unfamiliar unless it's been cleared first.
McKay: That's very important you never know, even a tiny little innocuous thing can, can kill you. Dead man talking
McKay: Well I only know one thing for sure and that is that flying darkness that needs energy can only be very, very bad.
Sheppard: It's a play you just saw it. It's named after a prayer, see there was this woman and her name was Mary and she... err. Did I tell you how much I like Ferris wheels?
Sheppard: Think we're going to need a bigger vessel
McKay: Size doesn't matter
Sheppard: That's a myth.
McKay: Well, are there any si- (Is injeted) ah -deeffects?
Carson: Dry mouth, headache, the irresistible urge to run in a small wheel
McKay: It doesn't think on that level. It thinks about eating that's it.
Sheppard: Well you would know
McKay: It must be a transporter.
Sheppard: We can name it later.
McKay: Ever seen a 20 kiloton nuclear explosion?
Sheppard: I have. (all look at him) Not up close. Look I think we should tell Teyla what's going on here.
McKay: Some of those Athosian women are pretty hot and we did just save them from the Wraith... we've got to trade in on that while we can, you know? Before they discover that we're not actually that cool?
