Carl Binder has started work on writing "the relationships episode" for the back half of Season 4. Once he's done with that, he will move on to writing the crossover episode.


So...a relationship episode?

The relationship episode, interesting. It'd definitely be nice to know which relationship. Though, with a name like Quarantine I can think of several possibilities in terms of relationship building.

Either way though, I'm glad Carl Binder is writing it. That definitely gives me hope for the episode. I tend to really enjoy Binder's work.

yay for Carl Binder writing this ep.

hmm... a relationship. as long as it's not another shep-as-kirk ep, i'll be fine. no offence to shep fans, but it would be great to focus on another characters relationship.

The only relationship i'd want is maybe McKay or Shepherd dating one of the other scientists off screen. Please no relationship between 2 team members.

Unless by relationship they just mean friends.

Anther thing to think about is this is the thirteenth episode, right after the mid season 2 parter. It's been said before that this will, in essence be part 3.

Maybe after a fight of some kind they have some sort of toxic leak and have to quarantine Atlantis?

I fear that this episode will be similar to Hot Zone and Lockdown. A quarantine can be always entertaining with intresting pairs and places. We had also the SGC base, Atlantis, small puddler jumper (39 Minutes, Grace under pressure), so I hope they can find out a fresh and less cliche situation. ;)

No, I don't think so, because the reporter has filmed that episode already, a few weeks ago, so that episode has to be in the first half of the season. Tabula Rasa maybe? Quarantine hasn't been filmed yet. :)

No it isn't. This Mortal Coil (#10), Be All My Sins Remember'd (#11), and Spoils of War (#12) are the three episodes of the mid-season two-parter. :) Then, this episode is next. There is only twenty episodes in a season.;)

Yuppers. Hmmm...I have no clue what this is about. plus on the reporter lady, the dates don't match up. that would mean the show would premiere in July lik eit normally does for that reporter lady to be in the seond half of S4 ep in September. And JM confirmed again last night that it would not be premiering in July so that's not the same ep.


I don't know what they mean by relationships. It could mean anything---all I do know is that it's team related and nothing else. All the eps are team focused in some way or another even if one of the 4 team members are the focus...everyone else is background and so this plot maybe around them rebuilding trust lines that might have been broken.

Something like McKay/Teyla are in one room and Ronon/Shep in another silmilar to the arc, or I could be completely incorrect and it's soemthing. In any event it's going to be team related so we might as well add that and beyond it there's not much more to write on it.

The one mentioned in the beginning post of this thread. :D

What I'm understanding from this is that we know of two episodes that Carl Binder is writing, the "relationships" episode and the crossover episode. "Quarantine" is written by Carl Binder, but do we know for sure which of the two it is? Does it have to be the relationships episode, or could it possibly be the crossover episode? That's all I'm asking - whether someone knows something I don't about why this would be the relationships episode rather than the crossover episode.

If it's the crossover episode, maybe whoever comes over from SG-1 gets trapped on Atlantis during a quarantine, for as yet unknown reasons. Maybe that's where the hint about a possible Ronon/Teal'c fight came from.

Just speculating! :)

Well the above picture and statement says Quarantine ep written by carl binder----I think the assumption was made that the relationship ep is Quarantine, but there's a small chance it might not be. I think it's actually this one, but this one looks completed, so it doesn't fit JM's terminology of "starting work on writing". The crossover ep hasn't even been written yet---so it's definitely not Quarantine.


The crossover is referring to Teal'c's cameo appearance I believe.

Huh? Teal'c will already be showing up in Reunion, or that's what I thought.

Link (http://www.gateworld.net/atlantis/s4/403.shtml)


Stargate SG-1 co-star Christopher Judge ("Teal'c") will make a cameo appearance in this episode, according to executive producer Joseph Mallozzi.

June 1st, 2007, 11:03 AM
Well the above picture and statement says the relationship ep written by carl binder----so I'm assuming it's the relationship currently under discussion. The crossover ep hasn't even been written yet.

No, that's what I was asking. The picture came from Joe's blog last night. The quote came from the SGA Spoilers blog. I was thinking if that comment had come from two or three months ago, Carl Binder might have already finished both episodes. But I just checked it, and the date on the source for that entry is May 7. Seeing as how it was fairly recent, it's likely that you're right - it's probably the "relationships" episode.

I apologize for not checking that out before posting. :o

Oh is the crossover when all of them go to Earth? Because I know in Miller's Crossing, they go to Earth, just no talk of Teyla. So do you guys think the crossover is them all going to Earth, since we know that Teyla and Ronon both go to Earth.

In the spoiler I was given, we asked about Teyla and there's no mention of her. That's not to say she's not there, but she's not mentioned while McKay is mentioned and definitely John and Ronon <---you'd figure with them mentioning Ronon we'd see Teyla. But there was no discussion of her. So I'm unsure of how it's going, she just might not be in the spoiler scene they have, but in other parts. So I was saying, if she's not in MC, maybe she's in the crossover with the others and they go back to Earth again.

Untill we have some more information about this episode, I'm going to remain slightly wary. I mean, we already have a "Atlantis epidemic" episode, so I hope that they won't have a repeat of that.

But my opinion will probably be changed when more spoilers come out.

A hint about the plot from JM:

When I first read the quote from JM you posted, the only thing that came to mind was people taking off their clothes and humping one another. Don't ask me why, but I have those really cheesy 80s films, like the ones where they put something in the food and people just get horny. Or some kid tricks another kid into sexually attacking another kid. Okay, so maybe I was the only kid growing up watching T&A matinee on USA. :o

Of course, I'm sure I'm wrong, but I don't get how many tests the team has to go through to get know their bond is strong. I might get a bit tired of team bonding stories. :( :rolleyes: :)

May be with this episode will begin the CG Wraith/Carter shipping. JM said that Carter and the Wraith will be shipped together. In the previous episodes we haven't got a hint about that kind of relationship so it's possiblle this episode to be the first scene of Carter/Wraith love/whatever relationship.

It is the relationship ep. Look at Female Wraith's post, which was taken from JM's blog. quarantine doesn't necessarily mean it's related to disease or illness, you could get stuck in room away from other people, and in essence you're quarantined from the outside world.

w00t for quarantine spoilers. imo this is gonna be different from those other quarantine-type eps eg Hot Zone and GUP.
seems to me that this ep is gonna focus on more of the relationships of the ppl confined, rather than the actual confinement.
so maybe like vab said, and they'll put two characters together that don't usually have a lot of screen time, or maybe some characters have a fallout earlier in the season, and this'll give them a chance to work out the problems

I would love all the main cast to be trap un able to do anything but wait for help, and rely on other members of the expedition to save their butts.

So if I have my all main cast members stuch in a single room, may be the meeting room and have to rely on other members of the expedition to get them out and find a cure to what ever slowly killing them or what have infected them at least.

Plus a virus which cause fevers and illusinations could make it even more intense. Especially if they cannot communicate with anyone other than themselves.

Say what you want, this is a bloody free country. If people can't respect that, they need to grow up. If you get reds, just ignore them or put it on no regs. Their negativity is not worth your time.

I'm personally looking forward to Shep/Ronon, I really have this obsession into their relationship. It's like older brother/little brother a little father/son a little best buds. It's just a very unique relationship. I'm not too into the McKay/Shep relatinship, because the comedic aspect of that has dried out for me, or I've seen too much of it.

I like the warrior comaraderie between John/Ronon. Thats the other reason why I would like to see more McKay/Teyla. I like the fact she was able to understand and communicate with him with his technobabble---without needing a translation. Or when we saw her in Aurora paticularly, the snippet of her sort of quirky fun side is entertaining when she's dealing with McKay. Again this brings me back to McKay's attention to her in Irresistable. Not to mention just the attention he gave to her in Tao of McKay. I'm far from a romantic shipper of the two, but I do like them together as friends. She respects his faults and doesn't judge. Plus, I want to see that he's grown up a bit in his relation to her. I find that despite the fact that Teyla has shown major instances where she's fully interactive with the eletronics and can almost stand toe to toe with him (which is amazing in itself); he still see her as a primitive.

I would like to see that sort of prejudice dispelled. In any even of course my two major quarantine pairigns would be Shep/Dex and Emmagan/McKay. Although I wouldn't have a problem with all of them together or even Shep/Teyla and McKay/Dex---Just not too much shep/mckay and emmagan/dex---meh!

I think it'd be really interesting if the CG Wraith and Ronon got stuck together. WE know that the Atlantis team is going to be working with the Wraith and I can't see Ronon just going "SUre, whatever" over that. If they got stuck, it'd be a way for Ronon to get over a bit of his issues. It'd also be an interesting plot without it getting to shippy.

Anyway, that episode sounds really interesting. I can not help but wonder what kind of relationship he's refering to. It could be a relationship regarding Teyla and her baby. We don't know when Teyla's supposed to deliver yet. Maybe it could be about that.

Donnabooth, if I dare include my ship in conversations I don't see why you couldn't. Listen to Vaberella, she's wisdom personified :P

Now as a S/W shipper I could always dream Weir would magically reappear in that episode however ( which doesn't seem to be the case ), I don't know if that would be really interesting to the plot or not, but who knows?

The statement in bold is incorrect. You statement about me, is completely factual however! :D ~as she shines her fingers on her lapel and brushes the dirt off her shoulder in pure arrogance~

Honestly though, JM never said there would be no ship. If that was the case RL wouldn't have said that in Tabula Rasa we would be seeing another reference to her crush. Or even elements of Katia/Rodney, which I'm sure we'll be getting. He did say however, he wouldn't be dealing with ship comments on his blog and really wasn't pleased with them being brought up every other post.

Relationship has a slew of double meanings, to fandom I was told it refers to romantic shippers. Well, I should say this fandom. In my other fandoms shippers referred to friendship or relationship. I doubt the topic will be about the kid most of all. I say this because spoilers have it where in Be All My Sins Remember'd Teyla is shot by a wraith gun and is on a mission. I don't think getting stunned by wraith weaponry is good for the worm---this is after This Mortal Coil, we're well have to deal with some "tragic revelation". <---Doesn't sound good for the parasite, since The Seer is the ep before or two before This Mortal Coil. I think the parasite doesn't make it.

No confirmation at all on Weir in the second half of S4, but there's still hope.

It's not about one specific relationship - it's "an episode in which an imposed isolation tests various relationships around the base"


Relationship has a slew of double meanings, to fandom I was told it refers to romantic shippers. Well, I should say this fandom. In my other fandoms shippers referred to friendship or relationship.

My understanding of Joe's comment - above - is that this episode will deal with relationships as in friend/colleague/etc relationships and not specifically romantic ships (unless TPTB are suddenly going to try to appease all the shippers at once and have everybody on the base in some kind of romantic ship with someone else!).

I have my doubts as the whether, ultimately, Teyla's pregnancy will result in an actual Teyla-baby but, logistically speaking, I can't see them having that story arc end "prematurely" as it were. If the reason for the story arc - as seems likely - is Rachel's pregnancy being written into the show, then it's going to need to continue to be written into the show until she's had the sprog.

lol the Mega-Ship Ep!

but anyhoo, i think it'd be a more interesting ep trying to work out the friendship elements among groups that aren't usually together, or ones that have had a fight. McKay/Teyla would be interesting, and something like Ronon/Zelenka, as other ppl has said

Naonak

I think McKay/Teyla is the one relationship that really needs some development, other than all of their relationships with Carter (well, not Rodney) - which, IMO, should actually be fairly clear after a couple of episodes.

Some more Lorne/Zelenka would be cool - they were great in 'The Game', kind of like Shep/McKay which I thought was pretty cool.

Right now I'm hoping for McKay/Teyla; Lorne/Zelenka and Sheppard/Ronon/Carter as the groups.

BTW, none of this is shippy or slashy in any way... :p

I like the sound of the imposed isolation testing various relationships.

There are certain pairings that I would love to see stuck together. Ronan/Shep for one as I love their dynamic. Both Shep and Ronan are not exactly the patient kind so I think it would be very interesting seeing how they pass the time.

Not too keen to see McKay/Shep as these two had had enough screentime together and I'd rather see the ptb develop other relationships..

Zelenka/Rodney would be a great combo ... and as Shep/Teyla are my fave pairing I'd have no objection seeing them stuck together either... after the events of previous eps these two could have plenty to air.

I hope we get to learn something new about the characters from this.. it could bring up all sorts of little tidbits about their lives and it will be interesting to see how the characters play off each other.

Will Carter be in this episode... I wonder who she will get stuck with ... if anyone.

I'd like to see Shep and Carter stuck together. When Carter takes command, I would think Shep would have some problems. He and Weir always seem to defend each other so to have someone else in that position would take some getting used to. I don't think he would be insubordinate, but there could be some simmering resentment that for whatever reason he is dealing with someone new. So maybe they could hash it out in this episode.

Also, if Teyla has an accelerated pregnancy, she could be trapped with McKay and he could deliver the baby. :D

maybe, but it really depends when this ep is gonna air. as it stands it looks like it might be in the later half of the season, so i'd think they'd deal with the shep/carter relationship earlier than that. don't get me wrong, i too am hoping for more of... maybe resentment, from shep to carter, but i think that'd be dealt with before this point

and plus GUP was a fantasy. not a real thing.

rosey_angel
June 5th, 2007, 01:45 AM
^ i didn't mean a make-out session either. but mckay and carter stuck in a room together would just seem to be too much like GUP, with at least them both yelling at each other about who is right.

coz with all fairness to both characters, when they get into a room and are told they're wrong they tend to fight and compain.

though maybe if they're together and they both realise each other has different strengths, eg mckay knows atlantis better than carter, it could be really interesting

Question...do we know if Carter is even in this episode? We know she's not in 6, and so far, 2 episodes we have confirmation she's not in. How do we know she's even in this one. Since there are only 6 or so eps left to go over.

I almost agree with everything here. I do think that if there is any resentment it will be taken care of earlier on in the season. But overall, I doubt there will be resentment. I think people forget that John IS military. He's not in love with Weir, even though he may give a level of loyalty. He has acted in the past the same way...in the end he defers all loyalty to the military even if he may not agree with what they do or say. He will follow authority (even if he acts out once in a while---and the only time he might have been in the wrong was in The Return II) and I sincerely doubt he won't respect Carter to give her most of his backing. He's done it in the past. Take for instance Ellis, I'm sure John is intelligent enough to know that pre-emptive attacks aren't really the step in the right direction without full knowledge. But being military he deferred to their ability and capability (again his over-estimation of Earth's military prowess----all the Earth people have this ridiculous amount of arrogance and conceit). All this for me, not to mention episodes like The Seige, to even The Return I, gives me the feeling he's not going to have any level of "real" resentment, which would lead him to undermine or even disrespect Carter.

On the other hand, and this is what I felt from the beginning and confirmed by David Hewlett is really McKay's feelings on the matter. McKay for all his arrogance and absentminded and at times selfish behaviour has proven time and again his complete devotion to Weir. Scenes in like The Return 1 when he was vehemently angry when the Ancients came back and Weir taken out of authority and not included in the meeting. Scenes like in Progeny. I'm not even moving towards romance, just to be clear---since I'm far from McWeir (Jack/Weir shipper here!! :D). But I do find that the writers have set it up where in the end McKay when it comes down to who's in charge and who he respects overall and rarely will undermine it's Weir. David Hewlett even confirmed that he's happy Carter's (Amanda Tapping) but McKay isn't.

In the end when it comes down to resentment we'll see it more from McKay's side. To me whatever feelings of obsession or adoration he felt for Carter died a quick death in McKay and Mrs. Miller. This difference in characterization could, if I allow myself a bit of conspiracy, be the starting point of Weir's eventual minimization. Throughout S1 and of course S2 and for what we know of McKay from SG-1 (mine based on hear say and a few eps), we know that McKay has of course had this sort of fanboy love for Carter. In MMM ,that totally changed. They were more like working colleagues rather than any sort of tension through McKay's over attention. I felt it was a step up from the norm of McKay/Carter...which seems to be in the direction they're going with between the two.

Actually because of this separation between McKay/Carter I actually would like to see how that would play out. Although I'm sort of doubtful Carter will play any deep role in this ep, if she's in it.

So in summary, the real resentment or problems will be between Carter and McKay more so than Shep/Carter---despite her authority and his lack there of. In the end of course I think Carter will defer to John's authority anyway since she wouldn't know what's the best weaponry or strategic approach to defend Atlantis. Shep/Carter may not fully agree all the time, but I think there will be more give on Carter's side than Shep's and far more Shep support of Carter than resentment.

I would love to see all the confirmed characters confined together, however, if they are to be paired then I hope it's the following combos:

Teyla/Rodney
Ronon/Sam
Shep/Ronon
Shep/Sam
Teyla/Sam
Teyla/Shep
Rodney/Ronon (athough they had a good run in Season 3, I wouldn't mind seeing more)

The Shep/Rodney, Teyla/Ronon and Rodney/Sam combos would only work for me if the writers really stepped out of the box, otherwise, those combos would just be more of the same old, same old.

To be fair to the Ancients, all we know is that the picture is an Ancient object. We don't know it causes the quarentine. Maybe it's the cure.

To also be fair to the Ancients we humans in real life arent much better. They have made many advances but at the same time many mistakes while trying to do a great thing.

Ronon and Keller would be interesting, Rodney and Katie are bound to be cute and make you say "Awww, how sweet!", Carter and Zelenka are meh, Sheppard and Teyla would be awesome.

..... Carter and Zelenka are meh...

Why?

I think it´s original and interesting. I think it´s better for her being stuck with Radek than with Rodney. I love McKay but I don´t want it. I don´t think it would be "funny" or how do they call it.
I am looking forward to see Rodney with Katie, thought.

And one thing from David Nykl:
Radek will save the day in this episode ;) It might be how he will climb through the airshafts. I think, he will get out and save them. It´s great to know :cameron:

I agree. The whole Carter and Rodney routine has being done a lot, and I'm sure it will rise even more once the season starts. I'm curious to know how the Carter and Zelenka interaction will be, though. However, I'm afraid that they could end up bonding by telling each other stories about Rodney.

I didn't say that I wanted Carter and Rodney--God no--it's just that I don't see how interesting Zelenka and Carter's interactions will be. It sounds pretty dull IMO. I would like to have seen Ronon and Carter stuck together. They're two very different people and it would have been interesting to see how they'd get along.

But seeing Zelenka save the day sounds awesome.

Telling stories about Rodney! I thought precisely the same thing. I hope they won´t do it.

I didn´t say you did ;) I was just curious why ;) It could be interesting, what do we know? The only thing I hope, is that they aren´t going to do fools from scientists around Carter like they did it in SG1. And this is good opportunity to see, how she gets along with another scientist, who is smart and good as she is. We actually haven´t seen anything like that before. Only with Halie, when Halie was again just a brat who needed to get lesson from "wiser, smarter adult person".
Her cooperation was usually with Lee, who was OK in the beginning, but was pushed away and usually said only 2 sentences. The final word had always Carter and we have never seen anyone to speak with her "equally". Only McKay, and it changed into him insulting her and she humiliating him. Which isn´t relationship I want to watch for 45 minutes. Or 14 episodes when I am at this topic.
So I think it would be interesting in this point....um, I hope I wrote it understandable enough :S

excerpt from a blog of a fan who details her visit to the SGA set. Ah, sigh....


"We went to the room they were filming in and saw, basically, a very minor rescue scene being filmed. The episode they were filming is called "Quarantine" and will air as the 13th episode of Season 4. What we saw right away was Dr. Z and Colonel Carter being freed from getting stuck in a transporter in the city after Atlantis goes unexpectedly into lockdown. The rescuers are Sheppard and Lorne. Also along with them are Chuck, the gate tech and an unnamed female technician."

There's lots more about filming the episode, so visit the blog; has links to pictures too!

Aww, I like this bit:

"I must say that, having met Amanda and having watched her work with the others on SGA, I feel a lot better about her being on the show for Season 4. Everyone was relaxed and worked well together. Seems like she's made it an easy transition for them!"

SGFerrit
August 21st, 2007, 06:27 AM
Another cool Quarantine spoiler:

The second scene we saw being shot was our little group—Sheppard, Carter, Lorne, Dr. Z, Chuck and the other tech—trying to get out of the small area in which they were trapped in the city. Now, from what we gathered, in "Quarantine", for some unknown reason—not nanites or any other infestation—Atlantis has goine into lockdown—trapping little groups of people throughout the city. They can't communicate with each other—radios don't work—and they can't get through the doors to other sections of the city. But our little group finds a ventilation duct high up in the wall in their little area that Sheppard remembers leads, eventually, to the Control Room. The vent is about 7 or 8 feet off the floor above a couch in this particular room.
David Nykl told us that this particular vent was created just for him. Yep, you guessed it! Dr. Z gets to crawl into the vent! Actually, he volunteers. Carter is willing, but Dr. Z tells them he's the more likely one to go because:

1. He's got the know-how to try to fix the city when he gets to the control room and
2. He's small.

After reading the whole thing, all I can say is Poor Zalenka/David!

This is good too:

But I thought it was nice that he told us! Actually, he told us because he was very proud of his part in this episode. You could tell by the way he talked about it and by the look on his face.
So it seems that Season 4 will let us see more of some of the less-seen characters. I think that's great!

YAY!:D

Okay, pairings so far would then be:

1. McKay and Doormat (aka Katie Brown :rolleyes:)
2. Dr. Zel and Carter (interesting--it's love baby!!)
3. Ronon & Keller or Ronon & Teyla ( but since Keller is in this) Ronon and Keller
4. Sheppard and Lorne- (I think it's love!! :D)
5. Teyla and no one!! <---What up with that? :mckay:
I wish I knew how to do the scratch mark because it's really Teyla and Parasite!!

Okay so far, it seems Teyla may be the lost bunny. But we have to wait and see, I know. It might be Sheppard/Teyla --- then Lorne takes care of those two and they save the others later.

By the way...I totally love Ronon/Keller (they are Teh OTP!!!). I was feeling Jewel Staite characters and Ronon since Instinct. I thought there was tons of UST between Ellia and Ronon. :D I'm a nutter that way. :D

This was nice to hear:

I will go out on a limb, perhaps, and tell you that, when you first see her (Carters) office, take note of the pictures that sit on a shelf behind her desk. They are pictures of Carter's "family"—her SG1 family. It's a really nice touch and definitely something that Carter would have with her in Atlantis.

Aww:)

Anyway, sounds like they had a great time, so good for them:)

I think Ronon and Teyla being together is a possibility (replying to VB's post). After all, remember Carl Binder is writing this episode, and he also wrote Echoes, which had a lot of Ronon/Teyla interaction. Or it could be Ronon and Teyla and Keller together. Why not? :D

Actually, that would be rather interesting. I would like to see Teyla and Keller become closer, and it's natural that they would, after their experiences in Missing.

It's not at all unusual for Ronon and Teyla to be paired off together. I think it would be a lot more interesting to see some new combinations. Sheppard and Lorne are fun together though. And I'm looking forward to more Zelenka. So this sounds pretty good. :)

http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e308/vaberella/huh2.gif You had me until the point in red. What are you talking about? She's an essential member of the team. Actually she's one of the four players and for all intents and purposes second in command after John (as seen in The Tower) why then would she not play a major role in an "especially team episode"; that's when she'd be indispensible. :S

I didn´t mean she shouldn´t be there at all ;) I ment it...OK, let me think :D...I thought it like about Echoes or Vengeance episodes. That everyone are there but nobody has major role. Or at least not too much.
I understood to DONNA BOOTH that she thinks when there is announced story-arc for Teyla, that she will automatically have major role in every single episode. Which I probably understood wrong. ;)

And, other thing, that Rachel/Teyla will be during Quarantine probably in high stage of her pregnancy so she even won´t have how to have major role there;)

With both cast members kneading their way into their roles on Atlantis, there is bound to be one episode where things start to click. "Quarantine," says Tapping. Staite agrees. "[It] brings everyone together even though we spend the entire episode separated," explains Tapping. "Yeah," says Staite, "I think Quarantine put the characters in a position where they absolutely have no choice but to bond." Tapping continues, "At the end there’s a realization that we almost lost Atlantis and…there’s a renewed sort of vigor in terms of protecting it." Staite reflects, "Right, but I think for me, Trio, the one that we just shot, was a turning point for Keller, especially since she was with Carter who she really respects, and she was with McKay who she really respects, as well, and kind of got to prove herself to the both of them."," says Tapping.

This is just the scene where Rodney tells Sheppard that he's going to propose to Sheppard, who seems shocked by the whole thing (as he commented "oh, second base" to Rodney).

And wow, they're not hiding Teyla's pregnancy anymore. You see her right at the end of the clip in this video.

Quarantine


Transcription of the MGM Stargate trailer for Quarantine, the Stargate Atlantis episode that airs Friday, January 18, at 10 pm on the SciFi Channel (US).

Amanda Tapping: “Hi, I’m Amanda Tapping from Stargate Atlantis. Be sure to watch this week’s episode, Quarantine.”

Rodney (to Shep): “I got this on my last trip to Earth. I feel that it‘s time that Katie and I move the relationship to the next level.” (in Rodney’s lab)

Rodney (to Katie): “Oh, am I? (Wipes forehead) I suppose I am. Uhm…I guess I should…just, uh (stammers)…jump right into this.” (in Katie’s lab)

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v443/morjana/quarantine/sweating.jpg

In the infirmary, the infirmary doors close on Dr. Keller treating Ronon for what appears to be a wound on his right forearm. (Looks like she is suturing…)

Various scenes of doors closing in various parts of the base, including what may be the library, Katie’s lab, and Sam and Radek in an elevator.

Rodney (to Katie): “It’s locked! We‘re trapped” (in Katie’s lab)

In a lab, Shep walks up to Teyla at a computer terminal.

Teyla (to Shep): “It appears there has been another outbreak.”

In Katie’s lab, Katie asks Rodney, “Quarantine?”

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v443/morjana/quarantine/anotherquarantine.jpg

Rodney (to Katie): “Atlantis’ self-protection against another outbreak. It‘s sealing off sections of the city to prevent spread of the disease.”

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v443/morjana/quarantine/sealing.jpg

Keller (to Ronon?) in the infirmary (as Ronon is trying to physically open the doors): “The problem is without communications you can’t tell me how bad the outbreak is.”

In the elevator, Sam says to Radek: “Either this disease spreads more rapidly than anything I’ve encountered before or something…”

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v443/morjana/quarantine/lift.jpg

Radek (finishing Sam’s sentence): “…is wrong. Look at the levels.”

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v443/morjana/quarantine/wrong.jpg

Back at the infirmary, Keller says to Ronon: “There’s a disease outbreak. And…I’m a doctor, stuck in this room…”

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v443/morjana/quarantine/disease.jpg

Ronon interrupts: “That’s right…stuck.”

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v443/morjana/quarantine/stuck.jpg

Ronon, in Katie’s lab: “I feel…(gasps) a little dizzy…(breathing rapidly) a little feverish.”

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v443/morjana/quarantine/dizzy.jpg

Keller (to Ronon, while Ronon is laying on an infirmary bed, and Keller is treating Ronon’s wounded forearm): “We could pass the time by getting to know each other better.”

Back in the infirmary, a missile of some type (torpedo? Compressed gas tank?) comes flying through the infirmary wall, and passes right by Ronon and Keller taking cover by an infirmary wall.

Stargate Atlantis - Season Four

# Title Time Description

74 Rodney Makes An 'Atlantis' Proposal 1:00

Rodney wants to propose to Katie and shows off the diamond ring he picked up for her during his visit to Earth.

Stargate Atlantis' "Quarantine" airs Friday, January 18 at 10pm on the SciFi Channel (US).

Transcript:

Shepard and Rodney in Rodney’s lab, Shepard is seated in front of a laptop, and may be playing computer golf:

Shep: “I can do a nine, the course is a par three.”

Rodney: “No, Katie’s expecting me.”

Shep: “Be late. Women like it when guys are late.”

Rodney: “No they don’t. And I can’t be late, not for this lunch.”

Shep: “Why is that?”

Rodney: “Can you keep a secret?

Shep: “No.”

Rodney (reaching into pocket and pulling out a ring case): “Great! I, uh, I got this on my last trip to Earth. I feel it’s time that Katie and I move the relationship to the next level.”

Shep: “Second base?”

Rodney: “No…marriage!”

Shep: “Really?”

Rodney: “Yes.”

Shep: “You do?”

Rodney: “Yes!”

Shep: “Married?”

Rodney: “What, you don’t think I’m ready? You think I’m…I’m rushing things?”

Shep: “I didn’t say that…”

Rodney: “Well, I’m not. I’m not ready to set a date or anything…”

Shep: “Is that a diamond?”

Rodney: “Yes, an eighth of a carat actually. Mounting was free. And got a good deal on it, actually”

Shep: “Oh, I’m sure you did.”

Rodney: “All right, so…(pulls off ear communication device)…here I go.!

Shep: “I’ll buy you a beer later and we can celebrate.”

Rodney: “Or drown my sorrows should she say no.”

Shep: “No, no, none of that.”

Rodney: “Right.”

Shep: “Well, go get the girl.”

Rodney: “Oh.”

Teyla (very pregnant) walks in.

Teyla: “Hello…”

Rodney, running by: “Can’t talk.”

Aw thanks. That was really cute. And that is one really ugly engagement ring.

As nervous and anxious as Rodney seems, I still don't get a "really in love and ready to get married" vibe from him. Maybe it's mostly because we just haven't seen him spend enough time with Katie.
Just feels too soon.

I like Shep's surprise and how he's both teasing and supportive.
Very sweet.

OMG, I can't wait for this episode! What's going to happen to Katie? to Rodney? to Katie/Rodney?

Here's my speculation:

Given the tiny clip I've seen of Trio where McKay mentions Carter's body and Carter flippantly remarks that it's never going to happen between them it doesn't seem like an exchange that they would have soon after McKay's girlfriend has died. Then again, sadly, I know how much the writers love their big, shiny reset button (Was Carson mentioned at all between Sunday and First Strike?)

I'd like to think, though, that Katie lives, and that JM's poem line refers to Carson I don't know any spoilers about that storyline, however, so there may be something to disprove me.

How convenient that everybody is stuck with somebody else. Talk about the writers forcing characters to interact with one another.

pilgrim soul

^It's not "convenient" it's the plot. Yes the writers are forcing the characters to interact because that's the whole point of this particular story, that people are stuck together and things are said, done, resolved that wouldn't be if they had not been forced to spend time together.

I don't think they're going to kill off anyone. DH said his relationship with Katie on a romantic basis was doomed. I wonder if she's going to turn him down and dump him? I could be wrong...but it's just a gut feeling. :)

I'll go ballistic if they do, but I don't think they will because...
Radek is down as being in 'The Last Man' which doesn't actually mean much because we don't know exactly how the episode will play out, but I don't think that they will kill him off.

Well, in the trailer it didn´t look like he proposed her. He wanted to but the lockdown started before he said a word. So, maybe when they will be stuck together, even HE might change his mind. But I think (but don´t want) that she really might die. I would be curious to see what effect it could have at Rodney but since authors love reset button, I don´t think it will have any effect. Maybe only to the end of that episode.


I really hope they're not gonna kill off Zelenka

They shouldn´t even *dare* to think about it. Someone in one Czech forum started to spread a panic but it won´t happen. Zelenka simply isn´t in next episodes bc they are not set in Atlantis...Harmony, Outcast, Kindred...so there is an explanation.
And I am not sure if most of the Czech fans would leave buildings of the studio intact if something should happen to him :D

Lythisrose
January 14th, 2008, 09:33 AM
If they don't kill Katie, maybe McKay gets so out of control crazy at being quarantined that she decides he isn't the guy she thought he was, afterall, then calls the relationship off? So we could get the angst but not the death.

You know, maybe after Katie saw Rodney like this

http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c365/wraithfodder/SGA%20season%204/q9.jpg

She had second thoughts ;)

But seriously, I hope they don't kill off any more people. If I want a slaugher, I'd tune into "24" (oh wait, that's on hiatus until Keifer's out of jail and the writer's strike ends). But anyway... I don't think she's going to accept, as I recall seeing a commercial, er, a ways back, in which Rodney is yelling at her - something about "this is what I do!" and I know it's from that scene as we don't get all that many scenes on Atlantis with fern trees in the background ;)

Why does everyone seem to think that someone is going to die in this episode? I haven't seen any spoilers that suggest anyone will. I know that JM's poem suggests that something maybe happens to Katie Brown at some point but why this episode? And why has everyone got so paranoid about Zelenka dying? Is it purely because of the cast changes over the past year? You're expecting TPTB to slowly kill off everyone now?

Go and check out David Nykl's blog (http://lettersfrompegasus.blogspot.com/) and he was filming right up until the season wrapped. I think it's safe to say Radek isn't going anywhere just yet.

I don't think anyone else is going to die this season. I honestly think Katie is going to say she can't live with Rodney's lifestyle, and that she ends it all.

TPTB have achieved one thing - we are paraoind and are worried about characters. Nobody is safe. Except Carter, of course (no offense, but they won´t kill someone who brings them viewers and money).
So we started to speculate. I hope they are not going to do an idiot from Rodney in this one again :( Why HE couldn´t change his mind? Or they both could decide to end it. Katie had over a year to get Rodney know better, she even wanted to call a plant after him. It looks like blind admiration to me. I like Katie but I don´t think they are ready to get married.

But, DH said something about "tragic" end. And Mallozzi´s poem says that someone close to Rodney dies. It might be anyone else, or in any other episode. But I think this one is "perfect" for it.And honestly, who else, from the characters close to McKay could die? Katie is the only obvious option here...unless it isn´t Jeannie and it better not be her!

How convenient that everybody is stuck with somebody else. Talk about the writers forcing characters to interact with one another.

Gee what more can you complain about. It's part of the story and it allows for character development. It actually sounds very interesting to me.

If you don't like that ship pairing then you might not like the next episode... If everythig i've seen is correct that is.

TPTB have achieved one thing - we are paraoind and are worried about characters.

:indeed:


Nobody is safe. Except Carter, of course (no offense, but they won´t kill someone who brings them viewers and money).
So we started to speculate.

Carter, Shep, Teyla, Rodney and Ronon are safe


I hope they are not going to do an idiot from Rodney in this one again :( Why HE couldn´t change his mind? Or they both could decide to end it. Katie had over a year to get Rodney know better, she even wanted to call a plant after him. It looks like blind admiration to me. I like Katie but I don´t think they are ready to get married.

But, DH said something about "tragic" end.

he did?


And Mallozzi´s poem says that someone close to Rodney dies. It might be anyone else, or in any other episode. But I think this one is "perfect" for it.And honestly, who else, from the characters close to McKay could die? Katie is the only obvious option here...unless it isn´t Jeannie and it better not be her!

you mean this part of the poem right?

As the death of a loved one spurs McKay into action.
yes it might be Katie but it could also be Jeannie or refer to something in The Kindred. I just hope Zelenka doesn't die


I thought that poem line refered to Wier?

how so? which ep do you mean?


This episode sounds like a load of fun, Can't wait.....

yeah the trailer was pretty cool :D


Gee what more can you complain about. It's part of the story and it allows for character development. It actually sounds very interesting to me.

yeah I really hope for some character development. Keller and Ronon, well we know what'll happen with them. I'm looking forward to Carter and Zelenka, they might have some nice scenes together. Shep and Teyla will be pretty straight forward imo. and of course Rodney and Katie...

Works for me.

Anyway, it's an apt reflection of real life. People are so constantly working, going, doing, etc., they don't stop to really get to know anyone else anymore. They don't just sit and breathe. They've always got to be on the move, as if it is somehow bad to just laze around and enjoy a few peaceful moments. Atlantis is like that, with everyone running around, constantly at work, so when the writers give us an episode that forces the characters to slow down and really look at and talk to each other, it's a nice change of pace and has the potential to be really interesting. We've been screaming for background stories and relationships on SGA forever now, and the writers are finally giving us that, along with decent storylines and good special effects.
I, for one, am delighted and I hope they keep it up.

Sadly only in my head and about a hundred fanfics to come. :p:D

I can't bring myself to watch the trailer. :cool: So tell me do we see Rodney propose in the trailer/promo or is it just that he tells Sheppard...?

Oh go and watch it! It's cute (despite the subject matter :D). Shep's a sweetheart and Rodney's just adorable.

Yep, in GW interview some time ago.

I meant this, yes. To be honest, I like Katie but if someone should die (and we don´t know it) then I prefer Katie before Jeannie and Zelenka.

But McKay seems to be more than OK in following episodes...even with their reset button, I doubt he would flirt with other women in Harmony. But...tptb are able to do it, thought :S

I checked his last interview with GW (http://www.gateworld.net/interviews/im_with_genius.shtml) and couldn't find anything. maybe you mean another one

yeah I feel the same way. I hope nobody dies but if someone does then I'd rather it not be Zelenka or Jeannie (though she won't even be in this ep so I doubt this may have anything to do with her)

that's one of the reason I believe everything's gonna be ok but we don't know until we've seen the ep

You forget Ronon's wife on Sateda was a Nurse/Doctor. Some people never change?

I am sure I saw it somewhere. It might not be the last one but I am sure it was in some interview and probably in GW. But I can´t remember. I´ll try to find it.
