Thursday Thirteen #6...I think


Thirteen of my favorite fight scenes from TV and movies



This list was inspired by super awesome hubby who got me season 8 of Stargate SG-1 for our anniversary last weekend.

1. Vala Mal Doran VS Dr. Daniel Jackson in Prometheus Unbound in Season 8 of Stargate SG-1
- Oh my God, when I first saw this episode, I almost peed my pants. After she beats the crap out of him (including bagging him with a fire extinguisher, she says they should have just had sex. That's just so Vala.

2. The Rock VS the rebels in The Rundown
- they're flying at him from all sides and he's totally over powered by all these little guys.

3. The Thirteenth Warrior
- Near the end, when Antonio Banderas's character has filed down the sword...and it's raining...love that scene

4. Teal'c VS Jonas Quinn in Redemption (Stargate SG-1 season 6)
- Teal'c is teaching Jonas how to box, and Jonas keeps going down but bounces back like a rubber ball everytime.

5. Kar vs Jade in Bulletproof Monk
- lots of sexual tension in this fight

6. Ronan VS the Marines in Duet, Stargate Atlantis season 2
- when Ronan is beating the crap out of the marines he's training and Sheppard says..."Ok, let's try that again." One of the marines responds with "How about you try that again sir." Sheppard wisely says "Ok, I think that's enough for one day."

7. Qui Gon Jinn and Obi Wan Kenobi VS Darth Maul in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace
- the double lightsaber thing was SOOOOOO cool

8. Wesley (aka the dread Pirate Roberts) VS Fezzik in The Princess Bride
- for a while there it looks like Wesley is going to burst a few blood vessels in his forehead hehe

9. King Arthur VS the Black Knight in Monty Python and the Holy Grail
- It's just a flesh wound!

10. Neo vs Morpheus Kung Fu Training in The Matrix
- we watched this scene about a million times when working out the choreography for a fight scene in my student film

11. Simon Phoenix VS future cops
- lord that was funny

12. Samuel and Marty (?) VS Arnie the Dinosaur in Nine Months
- anybody who beats the crap of of a Barnie look alike is cool in my books

13. Anchorman
- the alley fight scene with all the other TV stations.

Well darn

So, I went to change the picture and the stupid computer stalled...then I couldn't get back into blogger. *sigh*

After all that frustration, I did manage to have some fun on Thursday. We went canoeing up by Bracebridge and had an awesome time. We try to get out in the canoe every year on our anniversary, or close to it. (Our anniversary is actually today, but DH had to work.)

Now I'm chilling with a beer, some chocolate erection cake and working on my first attempt at a m/m erotic romance. Things are going very well so far *grin* so I'm happy. The urge to dive into all my canoe books and plan every single day of the summer is hard to resist though.

Back to work. Hopefully blogger will be cooperative this week.

Thursday Thirteen - Stargate Atlantis Quotes


Thirteen quotes from STARRGATE: ATLANTIS



ok, so a few weeks ago I did quotes from Supernatural, and I was going to do something a little more insightful this week, but since Blogger wouldn't let me in, I'm cheaping out and doing another quote list. This week I'm doing my favorite quotes from Stargate Atlantis, most of which will probably involve my two favorite snarksters, Rodney McKay and John Sheppard.

1. From "Rising - Part 1"
McKay: We need the ZedPM to power the gate.
O'Neill: What?
Jackson: ZPM. He's Canadian.
O'Neill: I'm Sorry.

2. From "Rising - Part 2"
Sheppard: Flight, this is ... (he smiles) Puddlejumper. We’re go for launch.
McKay: Er, this is Flight. I thought we were going with Gateship?
Sheppard: Negative, Flight.
McKay: Stand by. (to Weir) It’s a ship; it goes through the Gate, I ... Fine – Puddlejumper, you are clear for launch.

3. From "Rising - Part 2"
Sheppard: I was just wondering where we go from here?
(map pops up)
Ford: So, how do we find them once we land?
Sheppard: I've been thinking about that too...
(life-sense detector device appears)
Sheppard: Now I'm thinking about a nice turkey sandwich...
(looks around, nothing happens)
Ford: Worth a try

4. From "Hide and Seek"
McKay: (looking at mice) You got your eye on anyone?
Beckett: Not really.
McKay: Actually I was talking to the mouse. But now you mention it some of those Athosian women are pretty hot. And we did just save them from the Wraith so we got to trade on that while we can, you know? Before they discover that we're not actually that cool.

5 From "38 Minutes"
Kavanagh: I happily left the SGC because I had had it up to here with the military running things, and you just busted me like a Private.
Weir: Don't be so dramatic. Besides, the Air Force doesn't have Privates.
Kavanagh: Neither do I. You just cut them off. Right in front of my research team.

6. From "Underground"
McKay: I built an atomic bomb for my grade six science fair exhibit.
Ford: They let you do that up in Canada?

7. From " Brotherhood"
McKay: Suddenly I feel so tired.
Allina: You’re a scientist. Are you not used to this by now?
McKay: Ah, but my kind of science is the good kind of science. The kind you can do sitting on a chair or… laying on a couch.

8. From "Letters From Pegasus"
McKay: I once caught mono kissing a girl in Algebra Club. Missed an entire month of school. Still, the kiss was, uh, something, so it was, uh, probably worth it. April Bingham – cute blonde! God – you see, I love blondes, especially with the, uh, the short hair. Mmm. Samantha Carter – if you're watching, the torch is still burning – sadly, soon to be extinguished, but, uh...You know, you should know – I think you are just...so...well, you're great – you're really, really great, and, uh, I would go so far as saying you're the hottest scientist I've ever worked with. In fact, there's probably not a night that goes by that I don't, uh, find myself, uh...okay, Ford, let's, let's lose that.

9. From "The Intruder"
Sheppard: This is what I do when I have problems with my laptop, I turn it off and then I... turn it on again.
Weir: I think this is a little bit more complicated than that.
Sheppard: I'm just saying that if we're taking a page from the John Sheppard book of computer repair, we're really desperate.

10. From "Runner"
Sheppard: It almost smells like I’m on vacation.
McKay: (smearing on sunscreen) Could it be the simulated tropical aroma of cocoa butter?
Sheppard: Strong enough for anyone within five miles to smell you.
McKay: Like they haven’t been tipped off by the Aqua Velva

11. From "Runner"
McKay: So exactly what kind of special training do you guys have to go through to get this sort of mission?
Lorne: 'You guys'?
McKay: Yeah, you know – 'Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines. It’s a great place to start'.
Lorne: And by this mission you mean hunting down a skilled weapons expert hopped up on Wraith drugs, in the pitch black of an alien planet?
McKay: Yes.
Lorne: Actually, I skipped that course in Major School.
McKay: I was afraid of that.
Lorne: I was hoping Lt. Ford would recognize a friendly face and turn himself in.
McKay: You mean me?
Lorne: Well you were friends, weren’t you?
McKay: Oh yeah, when we weren’t out on harrowing missions, we used to hang out together. I’d share my dreams of a self-sustaining fusion, he would talk about how you could sever a man’s torso with a P-90.

12. From "Duet" - one of my favorite episodes. Rodney has a woman's conciousness sharing his brain and when she takes over and sashay's it's just so funny.
McKay: I'm not crazy. I just have another consciousness in my brain.
Sheppard: So he just looks crazy.
McKay: I'm sure I do, but only because Dr. Fumbles-McStupid over here was in way over his head!

13. From "Condemned"
McKay: What are you...oh my God, he's tasting it! You don't know what that is. That could be their laundry!
Ronon: (sampling stew) Very good!
McKay: Oh yes, good idea! And when you're finished with their porridge, why don't we try their beds, hmm?
Ronon: (to Teyla) Want some?
McKay: How good is it?
Sheppard: Leave it be, Goldilocks.

and a bonus one, because this is just such typical McShep interaction....

From "Aurora" This is an awesome episode full of snark
Sheppard: That's her.
McKay: That's the Wraith?
Sheppard: Yeah.
McKay: (in awe) Wow... she's hot... I mean seriously hot.
Sheppard: Rodney, you're drooling over a Wraith.
McKay: I know I disgust myself sometimes.
...and a few minutes later....
Sheppard: There are Wraith ships on the way??
McKay: I’m sure I mentioned that…
Sheppard: No you didn’t.
McKay: Well, it…it threw me when she was so hot
