McKAY: Hey. You’re up early.
SHEPPARD: It’s ten a.m.
McKAY (looking at his watch): It is? (He groans.) Ah, God! I didn’t sleep at all! I was up all night, thinking about this Ronon situation.
(He sits down opposite John.)
SHEPPARD: You got anything?
McKAY: Ah, nothing. I tried everything: pacing, snacking, bathing …
McKAY: Yeah, like Archimedes.
SHEPPARD: You mean the Greek scientist who had a crush on Teyla?
McKAY: No, like the Greek mathematician who came up with the Archimedes principle. The physical laws of buoyancy? According to legend, the idea came to him when he was sitting in the bath, so … Look, the point is that the revelation occurred while he was, you know, relaxing, not thinking about the problem. The solution, as it turns out, was right in front of him all along.
SHEPPARD: You think we’ve overlooked something?
McKAY (exasperated): I don’t know. Maybe. Look, all I know is I was up all night going over it and I’m drawing a blank, so, look, I could use a fresh perspective.
SHEPPARD: I’m not takin’ a bath with you.
