[edit] Synopsis

[edit] Plot

During an exploration of the city, several members of the Altantis base are infected with a deadly mechanical virus which causes all those infected to hallucinate and then die of fear. The city is put into a complete lockdown and it's up to Sheppard to find a way to deactivate the virus.

[edit] Mistakes During Filming

    • Mistakes during the scene in the Gym between Teyla and Sheppard. When Sheppard gets down on his knees he lost both fighting sticks. When the scene is shot from the view behind Teyla then Sheppard has his hands free. When the scene is shot from the view in front of Sheppard then he has a stick in his right hand.
    • After the EMP device is activated, there are computer equipment still functioning right next to it. Presumably, being 2 or 3 feet from a massive discharge should have fried the electronics.
    • When McKay responds to the backup call from Johnson and Wagner, he doesn't press his radio to actually send his response.

[edit] Mistakes in the Script

    • At the beginning Dr. Zelenka guesses that the number 4021 is not a prime number and McKay does not disagree with this. However, 4021 is indeed a prime numbe

[edit] Quotes

McKay: It's a true/false game. Statistically, just by guessing, you should be getting at least half of these right. Look: nine ninety-three.
Ford: Prime.
McKay: Oh, come on, that's an easy one!
Zalenka: Lieutenant Ford, would you mind being a subject of research paper on statistical probabilities?
Ford: This is some sort of pay-back for guys like me beating up guys like you in high school, right?
McKay: (Talking about the Overload light) Wait til it comes on, give it a good ten count, and then discharge.
Sheppard:
A ten count?!
McKay:
Don't worry - I've probably been around more EMPs than anyone.
Sheppard:
This is gonna be, uh - I'm gonna be fine, right?
McKay:
Yes. That's a yes - you'll be fine.
McKay: OK. I should be dead now.
Carson: Just try to stay calm.
Ford: Calm?! You told me I have a million tiny robots running through my veins whose only purpose is to terrorise and kill me. YOU stay calm!
McKay: You're only gonna have thirty seconds once you release it before it explodes. You need to get as far away as you can.
Sheppard: Get as far away from the nuclear explosion as possible - that's good advice, Rodney, thanks!
McKay: You're welcome.
Teyla: You have not been practising.
Sheppard: Yes I have.
Teyla: If this was really a fight ...
Sheppard: If this was really a fight, I would have shot you by now.
McKay: Essentially, with the exception of the upper level Storage Room, which the lovely and talented Dumais informs me is in no immediate danger, this pier's in relatively good shape.
Weir: Even after all the flooding from the storm?
McKay: Well, it's dark, it's damp and it smells terrible, but from an engineering standpoint we're good.
