JR Bourne:

[Sekh:] And we pulled this guy off the street to do the raffle for us... What's your name?
--Well, some people call me Marty. Or Martouf. A lot of people call me The Dead Guy.

So, Michelle, you sold that whole book of tickets to yourself, right?

We might as well start the rumors now...

Don't touch the hair, Colin!

It's my talk show. Just stay back there.
-- [Colin Cunningham, from backstage:] Colin has left the building.
-- [JR:] Just a minute. I'm talking up the audience.
-- [C:] I'm in the parking lot.
-- [JR:] So where are you from?
-- [congoer:] Pennsylvania.
-- [C:] I'm on my way to Pennsylvania!

You don't have any stories on me. I'm very...clean.

They know everything! It's not a bad thing when they don't have questions for you.

[JR:] You've never been through the Stargate?
-- [C:] I've never been through the Stargate.
-- [JR:] I hate to tell you, man, but it's just as fake this one. [points to half-scale 'gate on stage] It doesn't take you anywhere.

You actually think we could do The Odd Couple? Are we that odd?

Erick Avari:

[re: learning ancient Egyptian] 'Cause they dropped the vowels or something. They were really messed up back then. Man, get a dictaphone!

Man, those stunt guys are crazy! Don't go out drinking with them.

They were going to send me home, because I ran out of money, I ran out of scholarship, I ran out of excuses...

[questioner, on the horses disguised as mastadges:] Did they do some special training to make them move that way?
-- Well, they were Clydesdales, and I think maybe he was just really upset.

[on horsemanship mishaps in The 13th Warrior:] And no one was worried! I know it was my first day on the set, but usually when an actor gets thrown, somebody says, "Hey, are you okay?"

And I don't mind doing a great stunt if it's gonna be on camera, y'know? 'He died doing that one!'

So one minute I was on the horse, and the next minute I wasn't.

[on Brad Wright and Michael Greenburg in 'Wormhole X-Treme':] If you look at the script, the last line is 'We'll fix it in post.' But they just kept going. I think neither one of them wanted the other one to have the last word.

Brad Wright:

[on Sam/Jack:] Well, it sort of started in 'Solitudes', of course...but it was really 'Out of Mind'. And it was all Rick's doing. He's standing in the hallway, and he pulls me aside and says, 'She's not wearing anything.' And I said, 'Nope.' And he says, 'Isn't it about time I reacted to something like that?'
