McKAY: But the truth is, I really didn't think you were gonna find anything.
JACKSON: Well, that much I actually understand.
McKAY: You do?
JACKSON: Yeah. I've spent the majority of my professional life being ridiculed for my theories -- most of which turned out to be correct, by the way. I'm kind of used to it, Rodney.
(Rodney slumps back in his chair and sighs.)
McKAY: Doesn't that bother you? I mean, there's no vindication, no recognition, no credit.
JACKSON: Well, I could say the same thing about you. The discoveries you've made -- you probably could have won the Nobel Prize five times over by now.
McKAY: It's too true. So -- I guess none of us signed up to get famous, huh?
JACKSON: No, we did it for the money.
McKAY (chuckling): Good one!
(He continues to chuckle as Daniel grins. Then Rodney's smile drops and he turns to Daniel.)
McKAY: Wait a minute. You don't get paid more than I do, do you?
(Daniel rolls his eyes and sighs.)
McKAY: Do you?
