STARGATE ATLANTIS: episode7001
FOR THE LOVE OF A ZPM
JS: “O.K. McKay, watch your self! I sure hope your right about that energy sig being a ZPM. I’m picking up random life signs….STAY SHARP!”
RM: (chewing the last of his lunch)…”Mmmph…Ghyeah, ok, the energy reading it ahead to the right about 3 kilometers or so…Say, Sheppard, what do you mean by ‘random ‘ lifesigns’?
JS: “Ya know, like they are moving around a lot. It is hard to pinpoint them. They are probably trying to get a fix on that NASTY cheese you ate for lunch. I can still smell it, geesh!”
JS: Oh, I dunno, maybe wandering around an alien filled wilderness smelling like rank SNACKFOOD might be a BAD Idea?!”
JS: HMMM…well if they are rats, they are A LOT bigger than us!
RM: “OH MY….gulp* Are those BONES??? As in a Skull?!!”
JS: “Yeah and it looks like the are teeth marks on it too.”
RM: “OH SHUT UP! That’s not FAIR! ….you’re kidding, right?”
JS: “Um, NO, actually. Keep moving, it looks like there is a stream up ahead.”
RM: “Do you still have your Powerbar?”
JS: “ McKay! Three sandwiches aren’t enough? Focus !”
RM: “ OK, sorry, it is a bloodsugar thing…”
JS: “ We can follow the stream toward that energy signature. But McKay, …..”
RM: “ Things?! What THINGS?! Like living THINGS?! How ‘bout being more specific!”
RM: Wow, very interesting, but…not what we are after. It has the ancient energy sig, but….”
JS: “But what? “
RM: “ I think you activated it…there is a really weak energy field around it. Interesting. It looks like, wait a moment, yes! It is ancient directional triangulation display...”
JS: “In English please…”
RM: “It is a ‘you are here sign’. Simple enough for ya?”
JS: “ Great, does it read your fortune too? Or maybe your horoscope?
I‘m a Capricorn.”
RM: “No, really Sheppard, check it out. See the two yellow suns and the big blue one? That is the solar system where this planet is. Cool….but it doesn’t help us.”
RM: “Sheppard, That’s a swamp…a BIG swamp with life signs…are you sure we…?”
JS: “Hear WHAT? Don’t freak out on me MCKAY!! Look, just stay put.
I will scout out ahead. No worries, O.K.?”
RM: “OK, I’ll wait here….”
RM: “Wait! What am I saying! NO! This is not OK! Sheppard!
RM: “Oh NO! Sheppard’s right! The cheese! It smells the cheese!
RM: “Sheppard! HELLPP!”
“I’m drowning! Help!”
SLERP! (Big sucking sound here*)
RM: (thinking) “I can’t breathe! OH GOD! NIGHTMARE!! It’s the great white whale! It’s eating those egg things; I have to get out of here! Gotta breathe!” (Gasp!*)
JS: “McKay! Where are YOU!?! Come in Rodney! Aw crap! He just had to panic! RODNEY! Where the hell are you? McKay!!?”
