Whilst looking around in the Puddle Jumper, Sheppard discovers a huge storm is bearing down onto the city. In an attempt to save the city and the people, they evacuate everyone to a friendly planet, however, the planet isn't as friendly as it seems when they contact the Genii and tell them that only a handful of people will be in Atlantis. McKay and Weir are caught by the Genii, whilst Sheppard is on the run, and in the mean time, Ford, Beckett, Teyla and a few Athosians are stuck in a Puddle Jumper whilst the storm passes over them.
 Mistakes During Filming
- When Commander Kolya is interrupted from training his troops he tosses Sora's solid coloured staff to some other guy, and then gives Sora the striped staff, however, in the next scene she has her solid coloured staff back
|McKay: You're right - if only we had a magical tool that could slow down time. I foolishly left mine on Earth - did you bring yours?!|
Zalenka: You know, you're not pleasant when you're like this, McKay.
McKay: I'm always like this.
Zalenka: My point exactly.
|Guard (1): Bacon|
Guard (2): The one thing you wish you brought with you is bacon?
Guard (1): Hey, it's the food that makes other food worth eating.
Guard (2): You wish you brought bacon to another galaxy?
|Weir: How were you able to bypass the shield?|
Kolya: With a time-tested combination of strong drink and a weak mind.
|Weir: The city can handle that?|
McKay: Yes - theoretically.
Sheppard: Like dinosaurs turned into birds theoretically, or theory of relativity theoretically?
McKay: What?! Uh, sort of between.
|Weir: Alright, what's the plan?|
McKay: By my calculations we have just under, what, twelve hours until the storm hits, so, uh, we plan to *have* a plan ...
|McKay: I will *try*, but despite what you all may think, I am not Superman.|
Sheppard: Was anyone seriously thinking that?
Elizabeth shakes her head. John looks at the other scientists in the room - one of them shakes his head minutely
Ford: No, sir.
|Kolya: You killed two of my men|
Sheppard: I guess we're even!
Kolya: I don't *like* even (Pulls out a gun and aims at Weir)</font>
|Ford: How could something as big as Atlantis just sink?|
Sheppard: I'm sure the passengers on the Titanic were asking themselves the same question.
|McKay: Now that, for reasons too boring to get into, means that hurricanes are much more likely to occur.|
Zalenka: Well, like El Nino, the ocean ...
McKay: (Interrupting) Like I said, too boring to go into.
|McKay: Here, yes. I need to get done quickly so I can start working on the subroutines, and Elizabeth was complaining about her knee the other day ...|
Sheppard: Wait, wait, wait a second. Are these things even close to a transporter?
McKay: Uh, yes, Elizabeth's is.
Sheppard: And mine?
McKay: Uh, it's a brisk walk away.
Sheppard: And by 'brisk', you mean ... 'far'.
McKay: By 'walk', I mean 'run'.
