Haha, I'm sorry, I haven't even downloaded the episode yet.  I'm a bad SGUer.


I've been too buisy listening to Obama in Chicago on loop. :P

I'll get to it, I promise. :)

OK - I only knew homunculus from the alchemical sense: to make a tiny pseudo-human servant.

And while this "pseudo-medical" version is dangerous and real, I think the tiny pseudo-human servant is much cooler.  Mine would be based on Chun-Li from Street-Fighter 2, and she could kick Stallone's mother's butt.  Mrs. Stallone should have stayed with G.L.O.W. - IMHO.

You'll need to wait until the end for the homunculus reference.
