"Which one is it? The red or the green?" asked Sheppard from where he was standing against the wall.
"I thought I asked you to stay quiet, or better still, go and play with Ronon or Teyla," snapped Rodney at him.
"I still think it's the green we should be paying attention to," murmured Zelenka.
"The red is obviously attached to the timer. So I say we look at the red first."
"You sound just like Riggs and Murtaugh. You know, from the film Lethal weapon." John couldn't help saying.
"Please, they blew up a building and should never of gone near the bomb
in the first place. We are the foremost minds on Atlantis, this
should be easy."
Zelenka looked at Rodney worriedly as he touched the red wire.
Then the explosion came. They all ducked.
Lorne rushed in.
Turned the volume down.
"I see you've managed to fix Zelenka's alarm clock."
And nonchalantly walked out again.
