Sheppard: That's actually a good idea.

Yeah, I wish Dr. Lee had mentioned Mordor or Mount Doom. Stargate has referenced LOTR in a previous episode, and Return of the King would have been a perfect example of "sending him back to the fires from which he came."

(By the way, why would Ronon have watched "Blades of Glory"?? Sit him down in front of a good hockey game.... THAT he could understand!)

Best line?

Sheppard asking "Where are you going?"
Ronon: "With you."

Simple, to the point, just screams friendship, loyalty, camraderie :)

During Season 2's Critical Mass, Dr. Lee was trying to explain a transmitter relay to get a message to Atlantis through the Daedalus. He first refenced 101 Dalmations and the "twilight bark" and nobody got it. Then switched to Return of the King and everyone got it. It goes without saying that General Landry wasn't as amused :)

Yes, thanks, that's the episode I had in mind. That scene was great. Thanks for knowing the season & episode name..... I never know that stuff. :S

What I found so funny was that I've never seen LOTR, so I was like, huh? but if he had said 'smoke signals' (as the Indians always did in the old westerns) that would have worked perfectly.

...I've never seen LOTR...

Prion, I know what these words mean individually, but your sentence makes no sense to me.

Never + seen + LOTR = ???


:lol:

My fave lines were:

SHEPPARD: I told you I had an ex-wife, right?

DEX: Yeah, why?

SHEPPARD: Here she comes.

The look Shep has on his face when he sees Nancy is priceless!

It's all about the free food.:D That just sums up Ronon in one line. His follow-up line and Keanu Reeves impression needs some work, though.

Special mention to:

NANCY: ... For all I knew, you were halfway around the world, flying secret missions into Somalia.
SHEPPARD: That's ridiculous. I've never been to Somalia.
NANCY: North Korea, then.
SHEPPARD: There's a big difference.

And, as someone who knows what it's like to get vacation after 3 years and then have an 'emergency' call from work ruin it, Dr. Lee's complaints rang very true.

Have to add, just because I'm surprised no one else seems to have caught this little gem:

(Dave nods, then looks curiously at Ronon.)

SHEPPARD: Uh, this is Ronon. Ronon, this is Dave, my brother.

DEX: Yeah. Nice to meet you.

DAVE (shaking his hand): Pleasure. You two, uh, work together... in the Air Force?

SHEPPARD: He's a civilian contractor.

(Dave looks at him, obviously not believing it for a moment.)

DAVE: Right.

:P Subtext, baby.

I noticed that look, too. But I thought it couldn't possibly be what I thought it might mean..... I mean, Dave knew John had been married, so he wuold have no reason to believe there was any-- er, subtext.

This was my favourite exchange of the episode, I loved the way Joe F delivered the line "That's ridiculous. I've never been to Somalia."

Yes that's right because no gay man has ever tried to deny his sexuality by marrying a woman.

Seriously though, Alan McCullough put that pause in there for a reason, turning up to a funeral with someone who didn't know the deceased and isn't your partner is a little weird - so tptb acknowledged that.

My Favorite line as well. Interesting to see, how few Shep and his wife been talking during their marriage, as she doesn`t even know in which part of the world he was "working".

But the whole point was that they were "top secret" missions and he wasn't allowed to tell her where he was going or where he had been.

I know that those missions are "top secret" but to be honest, I really doubt, that if you live in a healthy relationship for several years, you don`t even tell your wife, where in the world you are going to fly missions.

In a normal relationship, even with a special ops soldier your talking occasionally about things like that. No details of course, but common stuff.

Because of that I think, that Shep took that stuff a little too serious and by doing so he lost his wife.

I think you're probably right. Sheppard puts his job before everything, including himself.

I rather doubt that Shep didn't tell her anything and I also think she probably did not ask. I never told my wife everywhere I went and she didn't really want to know.

What usually kills these marriages is the separation and what is missed while you are away. Babies born, learning to walk, birthdays, anniversaries, family deaths, etc... it's very hard on both. When I was in Somalia, which she knew, we didn't get mail or make calls for 3 weeks. Try that some time and see how it works out for you.

I was just peeking into foreign language fansubs (subtitles that fans write before an official release) and that line got translated into "He's a home renovator" (contractor --> home renovation contractor --> home renovator).

If he can't tell because it "top secret" he can't tell. And personally it would kill me to know little details and not all, so I wouldn't want to know. My friends husband is overseas right now with the war. The only thing he can tell her is where he is, and he doesn't do that anymore because she worries about everything that could happen. So he just gives her the general location.

The only thing from this episode that bothered me was his wife being mad about him not giving details while married. Sheppard was military when they started dating, unless they meet in school, she knew who she was marrying, it couldn't have been a surprise that he couldn't/wouldn't talk about what he had to do or go.

^This conversation suggests that Sheppard was doing some kind of Special ops work - perhaps when they married he was just an ordinary air force pilot, which she could deal with, and the top secret stuff came later.

Also I have known people who have married into the forces and they thought they could cope but in time found that they couldn't - its not easy spending special occasions apart, being alone for months and constantly worrying that you're going to get a knock on the door telling you your spouse isn't coming back. Not everyone can live like that.

Could she have been more understanding? Yeah probably but then he could have been too.

DEX (with his mouth full): Lots of food over there.

LAB. John, Ronon and Bates have joined Doctor Bill Lee, who is wearing a lurid shirt and has a terrible sunburn. He is muttering as he plugs some leads into a bank of crystals.

LEE: Stupid emergency contact numbers. Never should have answered that damned phone.

SHEPPARD: C'mon, Doc, it's not so bad.

LEE: Ha! That was my first vacation in three years! Two weeks, all-inclusive, nothing but surf, sun and skimpy bikinis as far as the eye could see, and then they beam me right out of the damned hotel room.

SHEPPARD: Looks like they did you a favour. Next time, use a little sun block, all right?

so what is he talking about?

Lisard
February 14th, 2008, 08:45 AM
so what is he talking about?

That is right after he left the funeral and had his brother go off at him about it, and about him leaving for years, and he says something about assuming that is what his father wanted, and his brother said that it was not, that his father always regretted the *obvious* fight they had had before he had left. JF really did a good job just showing how it hit the character only using facial/body expressions, that years of possible relationship time was wasted because of a fight then a misunderstanding (he thought his father never wanted to talk to him again).
