  • Quotes (12)

    • Hadden: We just plant two of them (claymores) opposite each other and run a trip wire right through the middle. Then all we got to do is lure him in. Reynolds: Piece of cake. While we're at it, maybe we can teach him how to speak Japanese.

    • Mitchell: Now, how is Jackson supposed to help us with this. Sam: Well a similar thing happened to him a few years ago. Mitchell: PX7377, the crystal skull. Sam: You really did read every report from every mission we ever went on didn't you? Mitchell: I was in that hospital a long time and they were all riveting.

    • Dr. Lee: Okay, if you're still there I've given it some thought and my guess is it should be a simple matter of reversing the process. I'm on it! Daniel: Is that supposed to be reassuring?

    • Mitchell: Roast beef. The one time I can’t eat, and they Serve. Roast. Beef.

    • Mitchell: No one can see or hear us. We can’t touch anything, ergo, no eating, no drinking, and I’m not even going to speculate on the other bodily functions.

    Trivia (3)

    • When Mitchell first visits Sam in her lab, he comes in talks to her then walks to the door. At the door he turns around and rubs his hands together before walking back to Sam. Later in the fast forward tape of Sam and Mitchell, you see that he never puts his hands together before he walks back to talk to Sam.

    • When Sam and Mitchell are walking through the corridor talking about Daniel being able to help, an SGC member moves slightly out of the way when passing Mitchell when she shouldn't be able to see them.

    • There is a type of goof in this episode that is very common in both TV shows and movies. Even though Carter and Mitchell are in a "different dimension" and so can't touch things (or are able to go through objects and walls) outside of the domain they're in, they are nonetheless able to stand on the floor, or go around in elevators, or go up/down flights of stairs without falling through.

    Allusions (2)

    • Michell: Why am I getting that "Patrick Swayze in Ghost feeling?". General, we need a Whoopi! This is a reference to the 1990 movie Ghost starring Patrick Swayze , Demi Moore, and Whoopi Goldberg. In it a man dies and no one can see or hear him, except for Whoopi Goldberg's character, a spiritual medium.

    • Title According to Arthurian legends, Arthur's mantle, or cloak, gave the wearer invisibility while he could see everyone around him. Arthur's mantle is one of the Thirteen Treasures of the Island of Britain which "reveal a preoccupation with worthiness of the person finding or using them: they will not work for the unworthy. This is a clear indication of their function in the king's relationship with Sovereignty: they cannot be found or wielded by any save the rightful king or champion of the king. Merlin was supposed to have procured these from their owners and taken them to his abode of glass on Bardsey Island."
