Dr. Rodney McKay: You gonna eat your power bar?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: Yes, Rodney. Told you, shouldn't have eaten yours so early in the day.
Dr. Rodney McKay: I'm starving! Usually Flora feeds us some sort of food when we visit. Come on, you hardly ever eat yours.
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: No, Rodney!
Dr. Rodney McKay: Well, will you give it to me later when you decide you're not gonna eat it?
Harmony: You allow him to question you so incessantly?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: I guess I'm just used to it by now.
Harmony: Would it not be easier to beat him?
Lt. Colonel John Sheppard: We don't beat people where we come from.
Harmony: Why not?

Umm chill out maybe?
8 August 2008 | by umar_n12See all my reviews

I'm pretty surprised at the two reviews already written, since I, and the person with whom I watched it found it pretty daem funny. It's a filler episode for sure, but a good one, with a lot of laughs and the rare kind of child actress/actor that can actually act.

Now the reviews below seem to criticise the girl for her personality. They also seem to criticise the FICTIONAL colony for allowing young girls to become Queen. Now if you are watching this episode as a parenting exercise for how to raise your daughter to be obedient and not headstrong, this may not be the finest example. If you are watching this episode to discover the possible perils and pitfalls of royal birthright assuming control of a small nation, then in that case it would be educational.

However if you're watching it as a Stargate Atlantis episode it's simply very funny.
