OK, that's not techno-babble, so I won't submit it. But it's my favorite McKay line -- he looks around shocked-like and says "Seriously?"

"Their operating system's a mess, reminds me of DOS. Trust me, that was hilarious."

I like the snapping that proceeds such an outburst best.
Somehow I don't think that'll be turned into a ring tone though. :D

It's obviously this:

"We do the opposite. Instead of severing their connections, we significantly dial up their attraction to one another. We turn each cell into an incredibly powerful nanite magnet. You know, one cell attracts another cell, those two attract two more, and as more and more nanite cells bond to the core group, they become stronger and stronger and stronger – to the point where every Replicator cell on the planet, in orbit, all of them, are massed in this, in this, in this giant super-dense blob."

McKAY: Oh, I’m fine. No; yes; and it doesn’t. (when he can read minds)

McKAY: If you’re a highly-evolved super-genius, put up your hand. (He looks around the Infirmary hopefully, then pretends to look surprised and raises his hand, smiling.) Oh!

It would be awesome to have a Mackayism as a ringtone, but a lot of the time its his facial expressions and other things that make these moments so great.

"Okay, let's say a magic fairy comes down and grants you one wish, and we break out? Then what, huh? We're still on a hive, we're still traveling through hyperspace, probably in the massive void between our two galaxies, where there aren't even planets, let alone stargates. Then what, huh? Oh, we fly home on the wings of imagination? Is that what we do, Ronan? " (while stuck on the Hive ship with Ronon)

"Hmm. Misunderstood and unappreciated by many, because his most formidable weapon was the power of his brilliant mind. Not just a hero - a superhero." (about Batman)

"Let me see if I can make you understand, okay? these results don't just say the Zed-p.m. won't work, they say this reality isn't governed by any natural laws. It's like looking through a microscope at a cell culture and seeing a thousand dancing hamsters."

Rodney is awesome. Period.

Easy one for me. "It's like singing tryng to sing the Maccareena, you can sing the lyrics but have no idea what you are saying."

"Oh My God, He Is Kirk!"

"....No nonononononono, I had to take the enzyme to take out the guards, and they were big, and dumb and stupid and....."(collapses) After taking the enzyme to escape from Ford's cave.
And, I don't know if this counts or not, but my favorite quote of his is, "Oh, God!!!"
