~ John/Rodney. Fragments of dialogue, wherein Rodney is "tech support", as recorded by twitter the jumper's internal flight recorder. Mr. Woolsey will never be the same.

"Once again, it looks like I'm going to have to take care of everything."

"Rodney . . ."

"Oh, just 'make it happen, Rodney', huh? Like I'm some kind of genius who . . . okay, well, sure, but I am not using duct tape!"

"Is it supposed to do that?"

"This is very delicate equipment, you have to be careful with it! I can't... can you move a little, I can't get the right grip with you right there."


"You know, just once it would be nice if you were the one on his knees with his hands covered in goop . . "

"Great sentence, McKay, but I still don't know what I have to do. Don't these come with some how to book so I don't mess it up?"

"Here, here, look—see where my hand is? Put your hand right there and don't move it until I tell you to."

"Is it supposed to feel so hot?"

"You don't have to be so rough! Finesse it a little! Massage it!"

"I don't know what happened! I usually just wiggle it. That usually works."

"You can't just turn it off and then on and expect everything to run smoothly. It doesn't work that way."

"Rodney? It's turning really red . . ."

"A little help here? Just ease it into the . . . there, yes, exactly, oh thank god."

"Hey, we did it! That feels pretty good . . ."

"You're sweating a little."


"Got any peanuts?" *sound of rustling* "Everyone thinks it's so easy until THEY have to do it. There's a reason people call me a genius."

Oh. how funny! And just now, as I was affixing a band-aid "tought strip" to my finger, I read the warning on the box - "Not intended for use on delicate skin," and I started laughing all over again.

dare I hope that this was not only overheard by Woolsey, but by Chuck and perhaps the late night gate room shift as well?
