[edit] Quotes

Weir: You do understand the Geneva Convention prohibits using prisoners for scientific experiments?
Sheppard: No offence, Doc, but had the Wraith attended the Geneva Convention, they would have tried to feed on everyone there.
McKay: Reminds you of Area 51, doesn't it?
Sheppard: Circa 1918.
Ford: I don't think Area 51 was around in 1918, sir.
Sheppard: Well, the *area* was.
McKay: Nonononono - he just doesn't like going through the Stargate.
Sheppard: He's worse than Doctor McCoy.
Teyla: Who?
Sheppard: The TV character that Doctor Beckett plays in real life.
Carson: Converting a human body into energy and sending it millions of light years through a wormhole - bloody insanity.
McKay: C'mon, how often do you get to travel to an alien planet?
Carson: I was already on an alien planet!
Sheppard: Y'know, we've been having these conversations for a couple of weeks now, and I don't even know your name. You guys DO have names, right? (The Wraith just looks at him.) Let me guess ... (he looks away for a moment as if thinking) ... Steve?
Wraith (Steve)</font>: I am your death. That is all you need to know.
Sheppard: I prefer Steve.
Sheppard: Hi, Steve.
Ford: Bye, Steve.
The Wraith runs towards them but Aidan shoots him with the Wraith gun
