McKay: Conflict is the natural state of the universe.
Beckett: *looking up from work* What?
McKay: I said, ‘conflict is the natural state of the universe.’
Sheppard: Is this one of those philosophical ‘change is the only constant’ discussions? Because I remember the last one and I’m not staying up till 3am just to listen to you three argue over the definition of ‘is’.
Beckett: Well he’s right you know, at least biologically.
Sheppard: There’s a difference between eating dinner and fighting wars.
Zelenka: Not to the rabbit
McKay: You eat rabbits?
Zelenka: It was a figure of speech.
Sheppard: Not to the rabbit. *pause* What?
Beckett: And this helps our situation how?
McKay: Perspective. Once this is done, you know something else will pop up. You’re never going to have your happy ever after, so why worry?
Sheppard: You have a very narrow view of happily ever after.
McKay: *snort*
Sheppard: How about happily in the meantime? I hear they got in a new shipment of supplies from home.
McKay: Jell-O?
Sheppard: See? Happily in the meantime.

And with that they retired to the cafeteria.
