"I'm afraid of what will happen if anything happens to Major Sheppard."

Kate does confidence building exercises with Lieutenant Ford that he doesn't realize the point of, and has to blink back tears when she hears that he was on a hive ship that blew up.


"If he doesn't give it a rest, I'm going to do something he'll regret."

Cadman's smiling when she says this, but she's got her knees drawn up to her chest and she looks tired. Kate's not completely surprised when Cadman loses her cool and yells at Carson about trying to get back with her, accusing her of having an affair with Major Lorne, and treating her like she's still his girlfriend.


"I don't know what I'm going to do here."

Elizabeth hangs up on her right after saying that, and although Kate keeps calling back, she never picks up. When they get back to Atlantis, Elizabeth pretends the conversation never happened. Kate's still trying to engage her when she's taken by the replicators.


"I thought I should set a good example."

It's possibly the most revealing thing Sheppard says to her in their whole acquintance, and even then it's revealing for what he doesn't say – for the mocking smile he gives her, like he knows he's not really fooling her. Just for that, she lets him pretend he is.


"I think we're all going to die out here."

From more people than any job she's ever had, so much so that she only needs to care about the part that comes after: And that terrifies me. But I think we're doing something good. And I think it's what we deserve for what we've done.

And I don't care.
